Untitled (Social Workers and Clients)
10 archival inkjet prints, 2003

Growing up in a family of social workers (and farmers), made mental categories seem both arbitrary and obvious to me - as well as helpful and damaging. My first visual exploration of this worldview was through the series Untitled (Social Workers and Clients.)

In order to de-segregate MFA and "outsider artists" communities, I work with both - including facilitating introductions and collaborations.


K'ipay Portraits

Denise Bibro Gallery, GAIA Museum, Jamaica Center for Arts And Learning
For K'ipay Portraits, my collaboration with the K'ipay school in Bogota, Colombia, I mixed my own portraits with those made by the students - whom I provided with disposable cameras. I subsequently set up up a program to provide cameras for the school and a K'ipay teacher, Miguel Suarez, continued the photo program until the school closed in 2010, due to lack of funds.

Inspired by a series of conversations with Dr. Janos Marton at the Living Museum, Queens, about the working farms of asylums in the past versus current catered dishes, I made a series of photographs from the museum and surroundings. Some of these photos now hang in the kitchen where I hosted a breakfast to reflect the bygone asylum farms.

I initiated a collaboration between Flux Factory and Bifrost and subsequently acted as a facilitator: bringing and installing Kenneth Rasmussen's Bikini With Spine at Flux and then co-hosting the Flux Instructional at Bifrost in Randers, Denmark. I also enlisted my carpenter brother-in-law to help Bifrost build the Flux Factory instructional - a phone booth of sorts.
