Bodega Chips is an interactive installation/film set in the form of a dystopic corner store. All of the items in the Bodega are made by myself and collaborators, and are intended to solve the problems of the New Age. Visitors to the Bodega are invited to take one dream dollar from the ATM and spend it on the item of their choice. Surveillance cameras linked to monitors are hidden throughout the store.
PUSSY FORT, 2011
Pussy Fort/Fluxsolis 2 is an interactive video installation designed to facilitate intimate social activity between friends and strangers while subtly introducing video content into the participant’s environment.
Pussy Fort is a small golden “cat-shaped” hut with vagina door, furnished inside with a wrestling pad, “fur” blanket, small TV playing Fluxsolis 2, a book on goddess and Yoni worship, a Cock Mosaic for decoration, a peep hole for peeping Toms, and a fire extinguisher in case it gets too hot.
Spooky Warms the Heart
Spooky Warms the Heart (2010)is an interactive film set/installation built for the pilot episode of an absurdist time travel soap opera.
I collaborated with several artists to make a two-room film set featuring hand-printed fractal wallpaper, a working fountain chair, coke-can surveillance camera and live feed, painted nautilus rug, grocery store items and coupons from the future, Mercedes Benz hood ornament glasses, and a time machine secret passageway.
The Spooky Warms the Heart set was part of Flux Factory’s exhibition Housebroken, and built so that the entrance was hidden from visitors. Once participants found their way inside, I invited them to make themselves at home; to sit in the fountain chair, clip coupons, and socialize. At the beginning of each visit to the set, I told participants that a secret passageway existed in the space, but they would have to discover it on their own.

DIAMOND CUP STUDIOS, 2012

The film studio is an editing and learning space, complete with projector and screen for film history classes, editing suite for creating and teaching, as well as other amenities. During the two-month long Spanien 19C residency, Diamond Cup was the home-base for the 35 episode internet show, Public Broad Fluxing, which chronicles the scavenging and cultural adventures of Flux Factory as we navigate Denmark.

Treehouses Of Resistance
Treehouses Of Resistance (2013), is an educational mural project depicting squatted land projects and forest occupations throughout the world.
Squatted land projects and forest occupations are encampments built by activists in order to prevent destructive land development and/or extraction.
Some of the squatted land projects and forest occupations depicted include the KXL Pipeline(USA) , Notre Dam Des Landes(France), Hambacher Forest (Germany), Bilston Glen (UK), McKay Tract (USA), and the Upper Florentine Protest Camp (Tazmania).
This installation culminated in a panel discussion with environmental activists on the ground in land occupations and a Q&A with the audience.
Treehouses Of Resistance was produced while a resident of the Treehouse Residency, a short lived residency program which took place in a small treehouse located within a Brooklyn Brownstone home.
