Golf is a virtue (2016)

This was an installation that featured three monitors, each displaying the avatar of an artificial intelligence (AI). The AIs were programmed to respond to each other, each in their own manner. Rendered in real-time, they appeared to be having an otherworldly conversation.

"The notion that three computers woud have a conversation is absurd. They don't need this; connect a cable, or transmit a signal, and you're done, the data is transferred. Yet here they are, discussing golf."

The Woodpecker Exhibition (2015)

"This was my first experiment in installation work. Proposed was that single objects have no value, and only attain significance in relation to their context."
