Portable Cellular Phonebooth

2001

stainless steel,polycarbonate plastic, aluminium,fabric, paint

16 x 16 x 16 inches

(40 x 40 x 40 cm)

The Portable Cellular Phone Booth provides a visual image of the social sacrifices that occur due to our own self-involvement. The sculpture is a retractable phone booth that is carried on one’s back and can slide up and over their head to completely isolate them from society. This isolation mimics the separation that already exists when one begins speaking on their cell phone. The action is fast and slick, similar to the flip action of early cell phones.
Historically the iconic phone booth represents a place where one can go to be alone for a private conversation, transform into Superman, or travel through time. Today, it’s obsolete in most cities. With the Portable Cellular Phone booth, one can transform from a member of society to one that is closed off, we can each instantaneously enter our own private realm and transcend the typical restrictions of space and time.

ADVER-TIES

2006

fabric,media player

60 x 3 x .25 inches

(152 x 7.5 x .6 cm)

 The tie is one or the most visible piece of person real estate you have. In today’s world that equals potential advertising revenue. If people pay attention to your neckwear then why not sell it out. Most of the time that I wear a tie I have some type of agenda, now I just put it right out there for the world to see.
In the past you might wear a tie to show that you are part of a specific group or of a certain stature, some businesses still require us to wear a tie for the same reasons. I think we should be able to control what are ties are saying and now you can. -NR 2006

ASSVERTISMENTS

2007

aluminium,polycarbonate, media player

7.5 x 5.5 x 1.5 inches

(19 x 14 x 4 cm)

People are constantly paying to advertise and generate income for fashion brands run people that they will most likely never even meet. It is a cultural pimp-dom, one that Assvertisements seeks to change by allowing individuals to make money by selling advertising time and making a profit off their own asses.
Rather than needing a fashion label with their own name on it to generate interest or recognizable value status, Assvertisements allow each person to publicize anything – from their own name or website, to non-profits that they would like to have supported - all on the most visible and highly looked at part of their body, their ass.
Following billboard and taxi-cab advertising models, Assvertisements are video screens built to clip securely onto a belt or waistband. They are meant to be worn when walking around or standing, which is when the ass is most highly visible to a larger audience.
The generation of an Assvertisement market bridges the gap between consumers and capitalists, allowing each person to become a walking social study in entrepreneurial fashion.  -2007

Porta-Party

2006

“I can’t wait ‘til there’s a party - I gotta go right now!”

If you walk around with a party going on inside your head and your just too shy to bust a move in public or if you like partying, but hate people your prayers have been answered.

The “porta-party” is the place you can relieve your need to party it up. Just go inside and plug in.

During the mid 2000's the marketing strategy was to show users dancing and having an amazing time in public with their earbuds. I looked around at people on the subway and city streets and observed something totally different. People appeared shut off and disconnected from their community. I wanted to illustrate how sad it would be to have a party alone so I paired the Ipod elements with the design of a Port-a-potty. The result was the opposite of my intention. Instead of using it alone users would jam as many people as possible into this confined space and have a quick dance party. I think we squeezed 12 people into it at one time. 

The four editions went onto several locations Miami Florida, Culver City and San Diego California as well as Boston MA.

  1. Stainless steel FF handel
  2. "vacant" or  in-use" display
  3. frosted glass window
  4. artist edition number authentication
  5. date of edition
  6. hardwood dance floor

“Spend your life with your pod and your afterlife inside it.”


There are songs that go with every big moment in our lives. They remind us of the many momentous occasions. In today’s world every time something happens our “ipod” will be there to share the moment. Not only with the soundtrack but now with video and photos.

      A child born today will most likely carry some type of media device with them for their entire life. If these devices live on with us we will carry a record of our entire life with us to the grave-that will provide more information for future generations then the tomb of king tut.

I find it fascinating that we spend so much of our lives focusing on small pods when ultimately we will end up in one.
