My practice explores work, technology, and the greater economy. The lines of inquiry in my practice include how new technologies like artificial intelligence are reshaping work, the often unseen and obscured material conditions of work, and the socio-economic shifts impacting worker’s rights, livelihood, and dignity.
The work I do is socially committed and exposes struggles over work through writing, photography, video installation, and activism. Growing up in a working class family outside of Boston has shaped my belief that the subjects and territories of labor and the economy are potent sites of exchange, reclamation, resistance, and revolution.
These projects are research-based and tend to be constructed over extended periods of time at multiple public sites. Materials and methods, including observational documentary, physical installation, and corporate ephemera, critically examine the struggle against capitalism and amplify the voices of the workers within, against, and beyond it.
Recent exhibitions of my work have mapped the impact of artificial intelligence on America’s truckers, the rise of algorithmically managed labor platforms, such as Uber, and Amazon’s expansion and labor record, listening to workers and those most impacted by the changes reshaping work. These exhibitions were composed of physical, material work stations, each of which included video essays that exposed and examined the underlying shifts and systematic inequality workers faced.
Other projects in my practice include AMAZING INDUSTRIES, an ideological startup and research engine that fosters dialogue about work and technology. And, my ongoing interview series, The Conversation Project, which dives into the practices of writers and artists centered on issues around art, technology, and culture.
