Kari Mulholland over at TED made a short behind-the-scenes documentary about Stranger visions, check it out!


God's Eyes takes the voyeuristic dynamics of social networking to unfamiliar extremes by giving ultimate power to one user at a time, enabling them to peer into and engage with a panoply of other users' lives.

What if we could receive real-time feedback on our social interactions? I developed a system like this for myself using Amazon Mechanical Turk to explore in the form of a performance. During a month of continuous dates with new people I met on okcupid, I streamed the interaction to the web using an iPhone app. Turk workers were paid to watch the stream, interpret what was happening, and offer feedback as to what I should do or say next. These directions were communicated to me via text message.

I am very excited about this event I am participating in on Monday afternoon:

It’s a policy discussion in DC about the bioethical and privacy issues raised by Stranger Visions. If you are in or near DC come by! I will have some work on display, give  a short presentation and then we will have an interactive discussion.


First off, a really nice post on the smithsonian blog about my work:


WNYC and PRI’s Studio 360 did a great feature on my Stranger Visions project:

I received an anonymous sample of hair, and made a portrait of this person’s DNA – see the results below!


Check out my latest work on Stranger Visions at Clocktower Gallery in lower Manhattan.


It’s open tues-fri noon to 5pm.

Lots of great press for the project in the past week:


I am excited to participate in the Eyebeam annual showcase, opening Thursday! They are moving from a twice a year open studios show to a once a year retrospective of the work of residents and fellows from the past year. It is a great group of artists and looks like it will be a fantastic show.

I will be showing the latest developments in my Stranger Visions project, unveiling the first portrait derived from found material as well as a video documenting the process.



I just came back from the 3rd Mediations Biennial in Poznan Poland, a truly international affair selected by 4 different curators and including 150 artists from all over the world.
