Display at Your Own Risk by Owen Mundy

July 1, 2016

I get a lot of press for my artwork. These articles often gloss over the nuances, distilling the essence of a story. Well-written academic articles about my artwork is what thrills me the most. Such is the case, with Owen Mundy’s article, Display at Your Own Risk, which looks at 3D printing, copyright and photogrammetry in art. The work, he is referring …

KALW Story: Brothers and Cisterns

January 13, 2016

“What’s beneath those brick circles in San Francisco intersections?” is a story that Audrey Dilling, editor and reporter for KALW’s Crosscurrents, recently released for broadcast on the radio. She joined us as a journalist-on-a-bike for the Cistern Mapping Project, shadowing a pair of volunteers. The bike-mapping project is just one part of her larger story about the San Francisco …

BOOM! WaterWorks

August 31, 2015

My Water Works project recently got coverage in BOOM: A Journal of California and I couldn’t be more pleased. A few months ago, I was contacted by the editorial staff to write about the 3D printed maps and data-visualization for Water Works. What most impressed me is the context for this publication, which is a conversation about California, in their …

Water Works, NPR and Imagination

April 21, 2015

I recently achieved one of my life goals. I was on NPR! The article, “Artists In Residence Give High-Tech Projects A Human Touch” discusses my Water Works* project as well as artwork by Laura Devendorf, and more generally, the artist-in-residence program at Autodesk. “Water Works” 3D-printed Sewer Map in 3D printer at Autodesk The production quality and caliber of the …

Panned by 7×7!

April 4, 2015

“a massive orgy of sugar cubes”…When my artwork gets denigrated like this, I almost always laugh. My skin isn’t extra-thick, but after the Wikipedia Art project, where I got called a “troll” by Jimmy Wales (in the days before ‘trolling’ was common parlance), I always find humor in the insult.       In this case it, is …
