I am the Co-Founder of Work Progress Collective (WPC): a hybrid identity, equal parts artist, journalist, political activist, archivist, and curious observer. The collective acknowledges the contemporary condition of art making; looking beyond the traditional artistic boundaries that place participants inside or outside, the model considers an active, implicated audience, performing collectively.

During the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council (LMCC) SwingSpace residency in 2010, the collective engaged in and observed image-making during the current economic recession, including conducting focus groups, interviews, research outings, and producing cultural data through video, audio, and photographic means. WPC's office headquarters installation at LMCC Art Center on Governors Island presented agency findings and engaged participants in dialogue about present day image-making and consumption.
