The Montana Data Transmitter Box is an interactive installation at the Lark Hotel in Bozeman, MT. Users can see current snow depth, new snow fall, and temperature at various locations in the mountains surrounding Bozeman, as well as gage heights of local rivers. Data is displayed on needle gauges, honoring the overall aesthetic of the lobby, and flashing blue lights indicate new snowfall, a nod to the decades old tradition of the Bridger Bowl blue light. The MTDT is a collaboration between ThinkTank, Hukel Designs, MFGR, and myself.

An ongoing series of toys based on historic weapons, here the Soviet R1 missile and the Vietnam-era M61 grenade. Brass, roller chain, paint, and wood. Not suitable for children under the age of 18.
A piece I made for The Cottonwood Club’s This Machine Kills Fascists show. The machine gun-toting stripper can be actuated up or down via remote button along with the firing trigger.

Activism and apathy. Flipping the guarded switch reveals the activism facade.

Like Throwies with a message, Subversive Streetsigns are meant to be programmed with subversive text and left in public places. Milled from aluminum and fitted with high-strength magnets, they are designed to be installed in and blend in to an urban environment.
