Often, people interact with my projects without knowing that they are participants. My art in form leans towards photography as document, video as surveillance, and performance with a lowercase letter p.
Recent projects include organizing and hosting a tour that visits current residents in apartments where I used to live, where we take a group photo like tourists; highlighting the ordinary behaviors of crowds in public space with countering behavior - bringing partners and groups with me to help out; and creating and remotely surveilling a surprise second room replicating the project room in an apartment gallery, inducing the feeling of surveillance without the substance. The point is to create the unexpected, something that hasn't happened before, and to examine systems, social and otherwise, while including the audience in the process.
