Welcome! Thanks for coming here.
I am an artist and educator whose work explores fairy tales, anatomical obsessions, and collective storytelling practices through mechanical books that combine animation and papercraft. My interests are in combining technology, traditional book arts, and sequential storytelling to create new forms of narrative for the 21st century.
My artwork has appeared internationally in festivals and exhibitions, been featured in publications such as Hyperallergic, Make, and Wired, and broadcast on IFC and PBS. My movable books can be found in numerous museum and library collections including the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the British Library, the Berlin Public Library, Boston Library, as well as numerous University and private collections.
I am an Associate Arts Professor at New York University’s ITP and IMA (Interactive Media Arts) Program located in the Tisch School of the Arts in New York. I am a co-founder of the Interactive Media Arts Program at NYU Shanghai and I also serve as an Associate Vice Chancellor for Global Network Academic Planning for the University. I received the University Distinguished Teaching Award in 2016.
This site is dedicated to my book and paper arts, animation, web, interactive work and more.
From 2007-2012 I co-directed an arts organization, Greylock Arts, with Matthew Belanger. Located in the Northern Berkshires Greylock Arts presented exhibitions and talks, and developed educational programs to facilitate a deeper public appreciation for emerging art practice. (You can download all our catalogs here: GreylockArts2007, GreylockArts2008, Greylockarts2008-reconnectingadamses, GreylockArts2009, Greylockarts2010, Greylockarts2011-2012. We also produced the work of the Hatfield’s.)
In New York, I volunteer a lot with one of my favorite organizations, The Adaptive Design Association. They make customized adaptive equipment from readily available materials (such as cardboard) for children with disabilities.
