Objecthood


My show of objects and installations, Rational Time, has been up at the Wild Project gallery for a couple of weeks now, and I’ve begun to think a lot about the psychological difference of presenting this type of work as it relates to my previously established working m…

On Perception


There was a moment, a little over a year ago, when three people, each independently and unprompted, suggested I read the same book: Seeing Is Forgetting the Name of the Thing One Sees about the artist Robert Irwin.

I must have been putting out the feeling of searching for the next step. I was preparing a performance and…

Light and Space


My earliest art memory still feels immediate in my mind. I was maybe 15 years old, and my percussion teacher at the time, Peter Ehrmann, had taken me to see an installation at the Denver Art Museum that he thought I should experience. He told me nothing about what it was I would see.

Objects


Over the past several months I've been thinking more and more about the intersection of objects and traditionally time-based art. I'm thrilled to be making my first forays into object-hood available for purchase at my just-launched store with big cartel. This initial series of works is based in my…

Abstract


Recently a number of things have begun to influence my thinking as an artist, particularly in the ways that we perceive, or fail to perceive, the passage of time.

I'll be writing more about the compositional ramifications of these revelations as I'm preparing for the performance of

Meeting


I wrote this on Thursday, still raw from what had transpired, while sitting in the majestic company of James Turrell's hypnotic and powerful installation Meeting at MoMA PS1. Turrell's work was some of the first art that I encountered that truly ingrained itself in me. Seeing his

Transit Festival in Leuven


I've been sort of drifting in my hotel all day in Leuven, doing a bit of work, drinking "intense" sparkling water, and finally getting down to reading Lawrence Weschler's seeing is forgetting the name of the thing that one sees about Robert Irwin. This book was recommended to me by several different people…
