I designed four styles of wrapping paper featuring images of myself from childhood to present, then used it to wrap presents for my family.
“It’s been a learning experience. Kobe competes at a high level every night, and the only thing he asks of you is to do the same. Of course he’s demanding, but when you’re playing with a player like him, you have a championship in mind. To win a championship is confrontational—that’s the word I try to use around here with this team, that we have to be confrontational. Kobe is great at accepting confrontation, in accepting each challenge.”
—Lamar Odom, 2007
The Jack Flyer was a 4.25″ x 5.5″ single-sided flyer printed on white card stock and handed out across the country in heavily trafficked flyering spots. Over 1500 copies were created.
The content of my website was replaced with a single pixel width outline of a rectangle, 80 pixels tall and 480 pixels across. Visitors figured out that if they clicked the top segment of the rectangle and then clicked the bottom segment of the rectangle they could draw a line. Immediately upon drawing the line they were forward to the standard content of the site. Lines were not allowed to cross. After 6-10 lines a “fresh” rectangle appeared. After six rectangles were completed the site went back to normal.
The rectangles and lines were then transposed onto 1′ x 6′ rectangles of cardboard. The cardboard was then scored on the lines alternating front, back, front back, and then folded in the same direction and hot glued together.
Championship Belt was a piece intended to start a dialog about what being a successful artist entailed. It was fabricated by Wildcat Customs and collaboratively designed by myself and Andrew Lazarchik. The belt was worn to various art shows as well as on the journey to and from those art shows.
I hacked a late-90s era inkjet printer to “print” blank pages at random intervals between five and fifteen minutes. The printer was submitted to a show entitled “Print!” where it sat a corner of the gallery.
