Skullery: An experiment in art looking back at its audience

video

Driven by pnuematics and McKibbens air muscles, and using a Microsoft Kinect as its 'eyes,' Skullery was a large technical challenge. The hope was to create a piece of art that would track its audience across the gallery. On the night of the exhibition, I was rewarded with viewers being surprised by, creeped out by, and ultimately delighted with Skullery's interaction with them. 

Hybrid Masks Project


Chinese American, Fake Japanese


Iraqi-Mexican-German-Trini

The hybrid masks project is intended to give visibility to those with mixed identities. In these first two I focused on cultural identity, but in the future I'd like to expand to include other categories such as gender and sexuality. 

Guns and Ships

Guns and Ships is a text-based adventure game intended to showcase a more diverse cast and create a game where kindness helps influence players' chances for the better. It is currently still in beta.

Tools to Pick Yourself Apart With


2013. Mixed media: wood, found objects, clay. A physical representation of self-loathing, and the toxicity of said emotion. 


In and Out (of the Binary)



Done in Photoshop. Two interpretations of the prompt "In and Out," both critiquing the idea of a gender and sex binary. 

The Queen Playing With The King



Done in Photoshop. A remix of Max Ernst's 1944 "The King Playing With The Queen," reinterpreted through an angry feminist lens.

Halloween '16

Happy Halloween! An exercise in creating a composite object out of many smaller ones turns creepy in honor of the season.
