I was commisioned by Ma Lone to do a series for the magazine Art Papers. My work features images and text, and it's called Office Nostalgia.
Featured in the exhibition Blog Reblog, opening August 2nd at Signal Gallery (New York).
"Reflecting the post-curatorial mode of online image distribution, Max Marshall and Paul Paper have each selected and randomly paired two groups of 100 photographers. Each artist then selects an image from the other's portfolio, to be exhibited in tandem.
200 images, curated by 200 photographers."

My work will be part of the event Multinatural Histories, at the Harvard Museum of Natural History on October 12th. 2013. The exhibition is organized in part by the nonhuman initiative at the Harvard Graduate School of Design, and supported by the Harvard Office for the Arts.
"Featuring local and international artists, the departure point for the exhibition the increasing deployment of the idea of the multinatural to circumvent the realist/relativist impasses generated at the end of the 20th century and the declaration on many fronts to "an end of nature". The term multinatural is widely understood to originate with Eduardo Viveiros de Castro and his description of animistic ontologies of indigenous populations in the Amazon rain forest. Within such a multinatural ontology, the material world shares a universal culture of life and vitality, conditioned by a peculiar, multiple, set of physiological attributes. In de Castro's words, employing the notion of perspective, so fundamental to a modern, rationalist organization of space, "a perspective is not a representation because representations are a property of the mind or spirit, whereas the point of view is located in the body". In other words, a point of view and the peculiar corporal circumstances that enable it, creates a subject, not an object."
