"If you say, I love you, then you have already fallen in love with language, which is already a form of break up and infidelity."

—Jean Baudrillard (1929-2007)

"You must stay drunk on writing so reality cannot destroy you."

—Ray Bradbury (1920-2012)

"A quality is an actual presentation of lived relation. World-glue made visible. See it, be surprised, live it and like it (or not). But don't just emote it. Above all, don't take it personally."

—Brian Massumi (1956-   )

"Trying to define yourself is like biting your own teeth."

—Alan Watts (1915-1973)


Just confirmed that I'll be designing an e-vite and poster image for an art exhibition opening at Campbell House, here in Toronto come September. I'll be posting sketches and process work to the design page as the project develops.

I'm now the designer/web designer for a publication I've founded with two of my favoritest people. It's called KAPSULA, and we'll be publishing high-quality polemic art criticism on a bi-weekly basis, through an e-mail list serve. This July will be the launch of the first 'issue', for which I'm learning how to make interactive/Javascript-driven .pdfs.

The deadline is also fast approaching for our first official call.

You can get the deets on the website:, or on the Facebook page.

I'm working on some new web-based drawings that will be interactive and also integrate some poetry. Stayed tuned for links to previews and in-progress versions.

I will be heading up the coordination bit for the launch party and an associated symposium for the release of Euphoria & Dystopia: The Banff New Media Institutes. This is essentially an archive as a book, detailing the proceedings of a decade's worth of talks, presentations and projects that happened at the Banff New Media Institute while it was under the direction of Sara Diamond. The book is co-edited by her and the renowned new media curator, Sarah Cook. The project extends through January. Stay tuned for documentation...
