Shuttered.

Shuttered tells an industrial narrative through incessant audio and visual repetition that mirrors the monotonous labor of the factory floor. A shape reminiscent of shattered glass is systematically filled with over two thousand windows that have been sourced from the homes and businesses surrounding abandoned factories in the Rust Belt.

While He Foraged.

I spent a lot of my summer with my dad in the junkyard. I needed a new driver's side mirror, battery and windshield for my van and he wanted bucket seats for his chevy and a rusted out lawnmower for yard art. We managed to scavenge all of the items on our list plus $4.72 …

Reflection on Style Wars.

Q: How are these hip-hop kids changing the face of the city; re-imaging and reconstructing the aesthetic of the city? Through graffiti. What is interesting to me is the mobility of there canvases. They paint the trains underground or at night, places and times where they are hidden from the world. Then the sun rises, …
