Visiting Assistant Professor of Digital Arts
Observing the decline of the Capitalocene from the sand pine scrub and urban sprawl of Central Florida, I construct para-fictional worlds. Performing as the Archivist of the para-fictional Center For Post-Capitalist History, I create a context for these worlds through experimental videos, modular and scalable installations, web-based games, and text pieces, many of which employ satire as a tactical strategy. These interventions leverage the aesthetics of corporate capitalism as well as populist political movements to spark conversations about the inconsistencies of the ideologies that subtend our current conditions of precarity.
