Works in Pittsboro, North Carolina United States of America

I am a writer, performance artist, and creator of experiences, living and working in Washington, D.C. My performance lectures, interactive experiences, and installations utilize appropriation, remixing, participation, and improvisation to involve participants in radical new ways of creating meaning. A key aspect of my practice is training "DJs of Thought" to sample, break down, and remix all sources of knowledge.

I create conceptual experiences and participatory art events, give performance lectures and improv performances, and work as a creative strategist for Threespot.

The Lab for Remixed Knowledge

Thu Aug 26, 2010 00:00 - Thu Aug 19, 2010

From August 6 - 26th, The Lab for Remixed Knowledge transforms the Washington Project for the Arts office into an interactive research space for exploring the techniques and implications of remixing knowledge. The Lab invites visitors to become researchers in our work in the emerging fields of object-oriented thought, quantum semantics, and radical recombinance.

Visitors will learn how to apply basic techniques of sampling and remixing to sources of knowledge, appropriating and adapting language from our interdisciplinary library into an open data set for collective experimentation. Together we will create concepts, remix descriptions, and discover new terrains of knowledge and understanding to explore. By contributing to the Lab’s work through simple exercises, visitors will receive certificates of participation in the Lab.

Chief Researcher Adam Good will conduct research from the Lab every Thursday during office hours, and post research findings online. The Lab is supported by Washington Project for the Arts and founding sponsors Dan Solomon and Laura Dove.

Each work will exist only in the experience, then memory, of the observers. Participating artists—hailing from 13 countries, ranging from amateur to emerging to established—sign release forms pledging never to reproduce, display, or sell the work they’ve
contributed to the exhibition.

Knowledge Work(s): In Search of a Spreadsheet Aesthetics

Excellent discussion!
For awhile, I've been using the spreadsheet as a semi-structured form for capturing and working with "improvised knowledge."
Thought you might be interested in viewing my interactive performance lecture, "What is Thought," that covers some of the same ground you discuss above.

One Hour Photo

Wed Mar 31, 2010 00:00

One Hour Photo distills the photograph to the ultimate limited edition: 60 minutes. During the exhibition, photographic works will be projected for one hour each, after which they will never be seen again, by anyone, in any form.

One Hour Photo complicates the myth of photography as preservation, manifests the tension between the permanence of the medium and the impermanence of time, and subverts the profit model of the edition and the print.

We seek previously unpublished / undisplayed photographs or photographic-based work. Work selected will be projected for exactly one hour during the exhibition, with the understanding that it will not be shown, reproduced or sold from that moment forward. Participation in the exhibition will be documented on our website.

Visit to learn more or submit.

Submission deadline is March 31.
There is no submission fee.

One Hour Photo will show at the American University Museum at the Katzen Arts Center from May 8 - June 6 as part of the Spirat exhibition.
