I am a visual artist, speaker and educator. My artwork is process-based, performative, and multi-disciplinary. These artworks frequently exists as site-specific events outside of formal gallery spaces. In creating my art, I draw from specializations in new media, photography, video, installation and performance.
I inform my practice through popular culture, shifting political/economic climates, and recent developments in wireless information technologies. Through research and studio practice I investigate the influence of these technologies on experiences, performances and understandings of identity. Through my work, I attempt to unravel and reweave socio-economic issues relating to the rapid adoption of such powerful technologies, and facilitate a critical dialogue about the relevance and impact of technology on individuals and society.
Well known for my use and critique of Radio Frequency ID (RFID) technology I speak on issues of contemporary art in connection with surveillance, human rights, and RFID technology. I am the author of several essays that address the limitations and liabilities of the powerful and wide-ranging use of RFID today. My artwork has been presented internationally including exhibits in the United States, Mexico, Germany, The Netherlands, Japan and Thailand.
I received my MFA from the California Institute of the Arts in Photography in 2000 and hold degrees in Genetics and Education (B.Sc ’91, B.Ed ’93).
