The ''First Annual Failure + ADHD conference''
is a research based project that has been imagined through performance lectures and potentially through walks, meals and panel discussions. Image above is documentation of an impromptu talk on 1.19.19 at UCLA during ''Processing Community Day (LA)''
''The Speed of Learning'' (2012 - ongoing?)
An on-going series of handmade books that are also kinetic sculptures. The title references my conviction for a re-examination of nation-wide education reforms, which do not rely on constantly changing reforms, but the simple encouragement of intrinsic learning, one student at a time.
''DIY Modular Gallery'' (Amateur Strategies) (2016)
5 custom separate modular walls (which can also be turned into tables) and 1 'wood suit' made up of the offcuts from producing the work. All has been donated to the students and the woodwork design relates directly to the design of the windows and that space.
This solo exhibition took place in the Kerckhoff Gallery of UCLA as custom built walls that could be used by the students to put on their own exhibitions and workshops concurrently.
The structure was built to be taken down and put back up in different orientations. The idea came from the conflict of UCLA students being given a space for all students to use, and the inability to make holes in the walls, which limited the kinds of installations that could take place in the historically protected venue.
I commissioned my friend Judy Hamann to write an new score for my marbled score printing contraptions. (2012 - ongoing) The first was made with Thom Norman in Glasgow. This took place at Bread & Salt in San Diego and we sold out all of the prints! (We produce only 1 print per performance, but can do multiple performances of the same piece each evening.)
