I am an artist/scholar, engaged in an artistic, intellectual and political endeavor that incorporates both theory and practice and bridges the arts, humanities, sciences and social sciences. During the last decade my work has evolved from interactive sculpture and video installation to experimental projects that re-cast communication and information technologies as public, community and collaborative sites. Over time, I have moved away from artistic self-expression, grounded in traditional aesthetics, toward a practice of social aesthetics grounded in community-based activism.
