Bio

I dig up, archive, construct, and rewrite the history that makes me queer. Channeled through pornography.

Rhizome at the New Museum commissioned my porn collection/novella — a zip file that was named by Hyperallergic as the best individual work of internet art in 2015. The work is included in the libraries at MoMA and the Whitney Museum of American Art. Others honors include being nominated for the 2011 Discovery Award at Les Rencontres d’Arles in France and featured at the 2009 New York Photo Festival. Recent press include an article in the 2017 spring issue of Elephant magazine and the Walker Art Center‘s 2016: the year according to Paul Soulellis.
