Gestural and postural tropes have long been employed as mediums of social control, mediums through which a body can be made to transduce social, political and linguistic formulas. What new forms of bodily targeting and splicing will emerge as our tools and environments gain more intelligence?

Much of my recent work leads to site-specific interactive sound-and-sculpture installations - visitors to the site consciously or unconsciously perform the piece. By introducing technology to basic processes - walking, listening, gesturing - I hope to point to the mundane but complex turf-wars fought gesturally and rhythmically between enclosure and expression in our contemporary scripted societies.

I have also created some new works that I perform for an audience...

Please go to to see video and further documentation of the work described above.

If you are in San Diego, come see the new interactive sound installation I designed for Particle Group. It is part of the show Inside the Wave, running at the San Diego Museum of Art from March 8 - June 22:
