● Exhibition Spac.es
Exhibition Spac.es is a free database of high-resolution emptied contemporary exhibition spaces and frames. I began to photoshop my own work into emptied press photos released by galleries as a way of showing my artwork online, allowing an online audience to consider my images as real objects existing within art history. The database serves as a resource for other emerging and early-career artists in establishing their online and documented presence.

It Was All Very Impressive is a web-based art project that's gone through 2 iterations. The iterations were loosely connected narratives considering how value can be created and destroyed throughout history. Part I existed online for online a day as a series of digital artworks broken down into chapters. Part II was a website projected in a gallery space. The website was programmed to automatically scroll and generate new projects for the duration of the exhibition.Shown as films at MoMA PS1 in Queens, NY as part of the New York Art Book Fair 2016 and at Microscope Gallery in Brooklyn, NY.
