I’ve worked on projects that have received awards over the years, all in collaboration with many talented folk. The list includes Applied Arts Award Annual, the ID Interactive Media Design Review, the Creativity 33 Award Annual, Ars Electronica, the New York Flash Film Festival, and a Macromedia Site of the Day Award, back when Flash was owned by Macromedia.
Collaborative projects have been published in The New Yorker (a 3d rendering for Alice Aycock), the New York Times (various Skyscraper Museum projects), Architectural Record (Manhattan Timeformations), and Wired (Manhattan Timeformations).
Collaborative projects have been exhibited at a variety of museums and galleries. The coolest ones are:
• Eyebeam Atelier for Diller + Scofidio Architects, exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art.
• Manhattan Timeformations, exhibited as part of the 2001 Ars Electronica at the O.K. Centrum fur Gegenwartskunst in Linz, Austria.
• City Speculations for Baratloo + Balch Architects, exhibited at the Queens Museum of Art.
