In my artwork, I primarily make tools for use by others. The tools that I create are computer applications, which are commonly referred to as "social software" or "art applications". My ongoing social software research is in the area of "independent interfaces," a term I coined to describe my artistic production and academic research. (The term is also the title of my related book project.) Independent interfaces are artistic augmentations to conventional technology that help people understand how social software can alter their lives in positive and not-so-positive ways. My interfaces are developed to illuminate and measure the often-elusive effects of social software on our culture.

    Moving Tangents, is a program that mediates exchanges on a network of computers in order to alter our ability to communicate. Moving Tangents inverts the typical communication structure in which users communicate overtly with each other in the hope of finding points in common. Instead, Moving Tangents creates temporary messaging environments between users through events that they already -- but unknowingly -- are sharing.
