LINK NOT WORKING? READ MORE AFTER JUMP

Summer 2018. Collaborating with curator Alex Terry, I developed a one-man do-it-yourself clickbait agency. During two evening events at the MCA Santa Barbara, I set up a wooden booth (similar to The Psychiatric Help 5¢ from Charles Schultz’s ‘Peanuts’) with a video monitor requesting museum patrons to text the garbage on their phones to (323) 673-1791. The texts received would appear on a Google Voice feed, be sent to a printer, and I would subsequently mount a growing collection of photos, screenshots, memes, reminders, stray thoughts, headlines, etc. to sintra with glossy black paint. provocations and headlines would be conjured and scrawled onto each collage, and stapled to the booth, eventually covering it completely.
