Research

My research is primarily concerned with the nature of human relationships and the objects that mediate them. I’ve conducted these studies and research across North America, East Asia, West Africa, Europe, and in the Deep South.

I take to heart Epictetus’ counsel that we are endowed with two ears and one mouth for a reason.

My practice is marked by active listening, seeking insights from a multiplicity of perspectives on entangled problems, and synthesizing conflicting accounts.

I want like to collaborate with you on projects, especially because I think your project will benefit from my expertise in philosophy, addiction studies, and creative development.

I am currently engaged in a four-year experimental publication collaboration with the Haus der Kulturen der Welt in Berlin, “Technosphere,” investigating the origins and future itineraries of global technology and its identity within a series of international events, performances, seminars, and conferences.

My writings have appeared in Addiction Research & Theory, American Journal of Bioethics—NeuroscienceArt Papers, Comparative and Continental PhilosophyNew American Paintings, and Newsweek.

My recent invited talks include the University of Basel,  New York University, the London School of Economics, and the University of Chicago.

I am an active practitioner whose recent exhibitions include the London Design Bienniale, the Atlanta Biennial, Eyebeam Art + Technology Center (NYC), and the Centre Culturel Suisse (Paris).
