Mirror Series ¡ª 2006-2008, five 4min. looping videos designed for installation.
The bathroom mirror as the site for private rehearsal of the public persona is explored through a series of long-take performances through a magical post production circuit. This series functions as a digital update to the early auto-performance video work of artists such as Vito Accanci and Will Wegman. Here, instead of the live self-monitored video feed being the situation of performance, it is the digital circuit, the performer interacting with not only his own monitored image, but the knowledge of the magical post-production that will occur.

52 Card Psycho is an installation-based investigation into cinematic structures and interactive cinema viewership using augmented reality technology. The concept is simple: a deck of 52 cards, each printed with a unique identifier, are replaced in the subject's view by the 52 individual shots that make up Hitchcock's famous shower scene in Psycho. The cards can be manipulated by the viewer: stacked, dealt, arranged in their original order or re-composed in different configurations, creating spreads of time, and allowing a material interaction with the 'cinema screen'.
