The Artist as Sculpted by the Students of The Crawford College of Art and Design.
During a residency at the Sirius Art Center in Cobh, Ireland, I organized a figure-sculpting workshop at the Crawford College of Art and Design. The workshop was lead by two professors from the college. I was the model. Students were invited to participate in the workshop. At the end of the workshop, with the students' permission, I made plaster casts of the sculptures they made of me. The plaster casts were exhibited at the Sirius Art Center in February of 2013.

The Longest Day.
A 24-hour recording of my heart-rate from June 21, the summer solstice of 2011, made during a residency at Platform in Vaasa, Finland.

Letter to the Editor.
I sent a letter to the editor of the German pornographic magazine Penthouse. The letter recounts a sexual liaison between the artist K and the curator A during a studio visit. The magazine published the letter in the Summer 2006 issue, under the title "Zungenkunst" (The Art of Tonguing). A copy of the magazine was exhibited as part of an exhibition curated by A at the Schirn Kunsthalle in Frankfurt-am-Main, Germany (Anonym, 2006).
A child's bike with a missing front wheel was locked to a lamppost outside of the Schirn Kunsthalle in Frankfurt-am-Main. As part of an exhibition inside of the Schirn, an existing architectural model of the building was exhibited. The model had been modified with railway model lampposts and a miniaturized version of the vandalized bike in reproduction of the situation outside. No information was given linking the two situations. (Anonym, 2006).

This was my contribution to a group show at the Ikon Gallery in Birmingham, UK. Over the course of two weeks, I installed a series of drawings in parking lots throughout the city.

Drawing locations were made available to the museum visitors upon request. The drawings are made with white chalk, left to be washed away by wind and rain.
