Hello empyre! It's been great to see what everyone is working on. Looking
forward to connecting in 2016.

*Current research, projects, and exhibitions*

   - I recently curated a group show with Jenny Odell, Morehshin Allahyari,
   and Caroline Sinders titled *Archive Fever: Future Imaginings of Things
   Past* http://www.b4bel4b.com/future as a part of B4BEL4B (babelab)
   gallery's Emergent Media Labs programming. It was a great turnout and
   hoping to provide and share documentation (including a curatorial statement
   within the month)
   - In March  2016, I will help lead a workshop and participate on a panel
   discussion for the Out Festival in Southern California celebrating queer
   black cinema with a special focus on Watermelon Woman, a film by Cheryl
   Dunye. I am leading the digital effort for the programming and most
   interested in how digital and mobile technologies re-interpret and
   re-imagine the film. Concentrating on uses of social media, augmented
   reality, and publishing platform NewHive.
   - I received a curatorial appointment at UC Santa Cruz in the Digital
   Art and New Media (DANM) and lecturer position within the department. The
   opening and showcase of the MFA DANM 2016 students will be on April 29.
   They are an incredible cohort and I'm very excited to help them showcase
   their work to the community.
   - In the most recent print issue of Hyphen Magazine, I wrote about the
   work of Andrew S. Yang, artist and scientist (per the suggestion of Roger
   - New York-based artist and educator, Carla Gannis will release a book
   of her work with her exhibition "A Subject Self Defined" opening at
   Transfer Gallery (NY)
   with a catalog essay I wrote covering her year long creation of the works
   for the show and the book.
   - My essay titled "From Materiality to Machines: Manufacturing the
   Organic and Hypotheses for Future Imaginings" will be published in
   forthcoming anthology, *The Routledge Handbook to Biology in Art and
   Architecture *(Edited by Charissa Terranova and Meredith Tromble)
