His past work includes "One Day I Forgot and Used My Hands", which explores the direct manipulation of moving images; and "It's not that I forgot, but rather I chose not to mention", which explores the systematic cleaning and replacing of the built environment as a way of resisting the tropical forces of decay and parasitic growth; as well as worked as founder of the net collective art group tsunamii.net concerning interactions between nature and the physical infrastructure of the internet. His current works-in-progress include the Sea State series, which explores the concept of borders by reversing the geographies of sea and land.
