I am presenting work this week at a creative salon in Manhattan around the theme of a new bohemia looking at radical new intimacies in a post digital state.
For the last decade or so I have been working with a nomadic social practice that grew in response to it’s formation along side the emergence of the digital age.

With this fall program of exhibitions, symposium, events, and books, the School of the Art Institute of Chicago explores the role artists can play in shaping the future."
