On view January 15 through March 6, 2015, in the Harnett Museum of Art, is the exhibition Anti-Grand: Contemporary Perspectives on Landscape. The exhibition features 24 contemporary, international artists, artists’ collectives and game developers who examine, challenge, and re-define the concept of landscape while simultaneously drawing attention to humanity’s hubristic attempts to relate to, preserve, and manage the natural environment. Through abstraction and simulation, parody and pastiche, the artists explore the ways in which we relate to the land, working in video, installation, video games, and traditional two- and three-dimensional work.

New video at IFFR!

I’m happy to announce that my most recent video “I’m in Pittsburgh and It’s Raining” will make its world premiere at the International Film Festival Rotterdam! It’s great to be in such wonderful company at this fantastic fest.  https://www.iffr.com/en/films/i-m-in-pittsburgh-and-it-s-raining/

I have also just learned that the film will screen at the Onion City Film Festival.

Thanks to everyone who helped on the project!
