The Merchandise Revolt / Lianzhou Foto Festival / Lianzhou, China
I am beyond thrilled to announce that Removed will be included in this years Lianzhou Foto Festival in China. My work was selected by curator Francois Cheval, head of the Nicephore Niepce Museum in Chalon-sur-Saône. The exhibition runs from 11/19 – 12/06 and I am so excited to attend the festival!
Reset, curated by Kimi Kitada is an official event of #NoTextWeekend which was founded by the hilariously funny, talented, and beautiful Allison Golderg and Jen Jamula of Blogologues. You missed the opening but you still have the rest of the week to catch several pieces from Removed as well as the work by Fischer Cherry, Sarah Hardie, Ian Hatcher, Jenn Hyland, and Allison L. Wade. I will return to NYC and Garis & Hahn to speak about my work on September 25th, 2016 at 4pm.

Collaboration with Precision Creations
During my talk at TEDxBend I mention my wife and I’s change of device use habits. Our bedroom is a space that we consider a no phone zone which not only allows for several hours of more sleep each week but also affords us time alone with one another where we can reflect on our day. My parents, Cindy and Glenn Pickersgill own a small metal art business and together we created this sign. More information can be found here.
Beyond how the sign reminds us to put our phones down, the REMOVED.SOCIAL Faraday Sleeve by Silent Pocket is still my favorite way to have my device out of sight and out of mind.
