• Walk the Walk

    My art practice is invested in creating a free space for contemplation that lends itself to mutual understanding and the promotion of non-violence. My work has taken a variety of forms including performance, installation, photography, film, video, text, sculpture, and sound. For the 13th annual DUMBO Art Under the Bridge Festival, feel free to join me in Gut #5: Witness Walk, a performance and sculptural installation project. During the festival, I will distribute white chocolate Humvees in a wandering performance. In the spirit of gift exchange, the festivalgoers and I will collectively dissolve these war vehicles by consuming them together.

Secondly, there will be an installation of these small Humvees in the Windows on Main: The Powerhouse Boilerroom, affiliated with Powerhouse Books. This exhibition has been made possible by the support of the Franklin Furnace, supported by New York State Council on the Arts, a State agency and Jerome Foundation. In the past, I have participated in exhibitions, performances, and film festivals internationally, including at the Brooklyn Museum, the Film Anthology Archives, and the High Falls Film Festival.
