Graduate Fellowships Program 2012—2013
I am engaged in the exploration of identity creation, the exploitative participation of the user in the generation of information, and the potential consequences of augmenting the self through merging with technology. I use emergent technology to raise questions about authorship and ownership of cultural identity through the remixability of digital media. I employ digital networks as a source of content appropriation and as vehicle for distribution. To this extent I am examining the function of the computer network in the creation and dissemination of data in a modular open‐source system.
While at Headlands
While at Headlands I plan to continue my experimentations with emergent technology in the generation of cultural identity. Through working with augmented reality, video mapping, and locative media I will explore the geographical and cultural shifts of the Marin Headlands; from its origins as a military installation to its functions as a national park and cultural reservoir. I find the dynamic beauty of the Marin Headlands coupled with its wartime past to be a potent mixture of natural science and human history. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with a renowned international artist‐in‐residence program as well as other professional Bay Area affiliates to flesh out new ideas and expand my current body of work.
