Artwork at Clymer Gallery in Ellensberg, July 2015
A video I collaborated on with my family is at the Clymer Gallery in Ellensberg for the month of July as part of group show with other PUNCH members.
Baby Clymer is "found footage" from the childhood of artist John Clymer and shows his early influences living just east of the Cascades in the Wild West.

Curating "Enigma Machine" at Bumbershoot this year! April 2013
Jana Brevick and I will again take the Fisher Pavilion by storm with this year's Bumbershoot Visual Arts exhibition, Enigma Machine. Inspired by the curious and beautiful British spy contraption, Enigma Machine will be an invitational group exhibition for artists working in experimental media and developing machines that mysteriously (or blatantly) create art or perform as some aspect of their function. We're excited to bring in two international artists this year - Henrik Menne from Copenhagen and Samson Young from Hong Kong.
