Statement

I have to meet someone in their illusion and, with them, walk along it to convince them it's just a story they were told and are retelling, while remembering not to fall for my own.

Some artists want to make state-of-the-art; I want to make art of the State. My work is public, it is federal, it is philosophical, it is procedural (procedure as a distortion of the practicality of an institution). Though I make individual performances, characters, videos, websites, publications, meetings, and installations, my transmedia theory unites them as part and parcel of an expanding realm that I am in the process of creating. I create facsimiles of everyday experiences: fabricated wikipedia articles, newspapers, flags, religions, departments, and people. It is a parallel narrative of the American experience, of a personal experience.
