Almost a year ago, I joined a makerspace called NYC Resistor. Aside from being populated with amazing people who are working on crazy projects (here, here, here, and here, for example), it’s given me access to new technologies, new directions, and new skills I never […]

Even as I get ready to leave for India, there’s still a lot going on in New York, including a nice little show at Recession Art, called American Daydream. Go there to see one of my latest paintings, a palimpsest featuring the text from […]
