I wrote this godawful thesis. I played bad cop for a 'sustainable living festival' at a Swedish Osho commune. Zach Postone did a video for this King Gristle song. I played a show as King Gristle at Vassar College with Container and Profligate (one of those people got punched out by a student at an after party; it was weird). I made this lexicon for Paul Legault’s “What the Translator has to do,” in Triple Canopy’s book Corrected Slogans. I fought my first amateur kickboxing match. I lost. I performed an annotated transcription of this video with Paul Legault at “Don’t Stop: Neophilia, Niche War, Expert Boxes, The Superbody, and Networking the Middle Class,” at the New Museum. I didn't like this show. I became an associate editor at Triple Canopy. I became an assistant editor at Art in America. I wrote this profile of Tzechar and speculative historical fiction as Asian dance music (the original piece was a lot longer). I didn't like this show either. Becca Abbe made me this website. Thanks Becca! I wrote about a bunch of Japanese DJs in a kind of dumb way. My mom and I read at this marathon reading Triple Canopy does. I interviewed the nice people at American Medium about their new space. Guggenheim Abu Dhabi seems pretty fucked, so I talked to G.U.L.F. Rashaad Newsome spoke to me about vogue flaneurs and Kinects. I did this interview about "Messages and Means," a retrospective of Muriel Cooper's work at MIT. I coordinated a bunch of web interviews in conjunction with Art in America's April issue on corporate aesthetics. Here's mine with Aleksandra Mir about her 2003 archive-as-book Corporate Mentality. I also interviewed Dora Budor for that series. Heidi Bucher tha gawd. Haven't done shit this summer, it's great. Metahaven and Independent Diplomat explained their A.i.A. cover about Western Sahara to me. I left Art in America. I organized Period Styles, a Triple Canopy panel examining "how aesthetic movements, technological shifts, social networks, and popular sentiments come together in the creation of dominant styles in certain places and at certain times," with Eric Hu, Lisa Naftolin, Susan Sellers, and William S. Smith. In Mexico City with Triple Canopy for Universal Time (Tiempo Universal), a seminar on publication as a means of producing and distributing knowledge. Picked Artie Vierkant's show at Untitled for Artforum. 25 years of ineffectual fury and quixotic righteousness, as of this day! I organized and moderated "Some Minor Effects of Gravity," a Triple Canopy event with Rosa Aiello and Kari Rittenbach examining how animation acts as a technique and as a state that may be suddenly and surprisingly assumed by seemingly inanimate things. I talked with Adam Greenfield about weaponized data streams and not being able to buy toilet paper for It Speaks of Others, an issue of Triple Canopy devoted to objects and objectivity. Timothy Leonido and I started (☝ ՞ਊ ՞)☝ (aka (╬⓪益⓪), (☉౪ ⊙), or ʕʘ‿ʘʔ ), a monthly reading/performance/whatever series at Topos Bookstore. I wrote a weird essay about whiteness, cuteness, and art school (?) for the inaugural issue of Talk. Paul Chan is a trap. Maria Petschnig made voyeurism tedious for me and that's ok. I reviewed Yuji Agematsu's show at Real Fine Arts for Frieze. I talked with anthropologist Cori Hayden about biopiracy, pharmaceutical patent law, and Dr. Simi for Pointing Machines, an issue devoted to the consideration of contemporary and historical modes of reproduction. I wrote about the hyperactive adult (leisure) lifestyle of the Young-Old and the doublespeak of post-work for The Nation. Also wrote up this Wu Tsang show for Frieze. I have more problems and qualms than I wrote about here but Martin Wong's show was great. I edited Common Practice New York's Near Contact, featuring essays from David Joselit and Amy Lien & Enzo Camacho. I wrote about Mike Silver's minimalist sculptural sensibility and maximalist obsession with self-organizing complexity (and masonry robots) for Metropolis. I didn't get it with Rhizome and Seven on Seven. I wrote about sports—Jon Jones, my addiction to MMA websites, Joe Rogan's resemblance to a screaming human thumb—for N+1. This fall I'll be joining Princeton's German Department as a graduate student. I'm a senior editor now at Triple Canopy.
