Liberator Test Rounds debut at MAK, The Austrian Museum of Contemporary Art
Liberator Test Rounds is a series of stretched canvases with gun shots by the 3D-printable single shot handgun, the Liberator. The shots were fired into the canvases using three models of the Liberator, which was sourced from the Pirate Bay.
The series explores the reappropriation of technology as a tool for creativity, expanding the way people consider their potential use as well as the absurdity of fear and the reaction of disempowerment when we lack understanding. The resulting paintings are abstract, and the process of making the piece is as important as the finished work.
Liberator Test Rounds will debut during Out of the Box at MAK, Austrian Museum of Contemporary Art.

I'm participating in The Wrong/New Digital Art Biennale
Olia's Chapel, curated by Helena Acosta, opens today as part of The Wrong biennale. The exhibition is inspired by the work of net art legend Olia Lialina.
What is the folklore in the digital age? How do we relate with this codes of language? Is there a native expression that makes up the universe of online culture? The artist and researcher Olia Lialina is considered as the mother of all theoretical structures related to these questions. This is her Chapel, formed by a select group of artists who developed an argued discourse about the study of the forms and the content, of what we might call the new online amateur culture, here is a statement that frames it: they are artists who go Beyond Folklore, they are The Olia's Chapel.
Artists include: Nick Briz, Dragan Espenschied, Parker Ito, Olia Lialina, Tobias Leingruber, and Addie Wagenknecht.

Interview with We Make Money Not Art
Régine Debatty interviewed me for We Make Money Not Art:
"I think women of my generation were raised to believe that we can have it all, but that theory had never really been tested, our mothers gave us something impossible. At the same time, I was playing with materiality and preconceived notions of perfection within my own work. I wanted to let go of that in a playful way. I never wanted to be responsible for feminism, yet this particular notion made sense and I want to have the poetic liberty to give that away to someone else who really wants it."

Curators Kyle Chayka and Marina Galperina will present National #Selfie Portrait Gallery, an installation of 19 emerging artists from the EU and the US who have created short-form videos engaging with the medium of the “selfie,” the omnipresent slang for digital self-portraits found across all social networks.
The artists, including Bunny Rogers, Addie Wagenknecht, Jayson Musson (Hennessy Youngman), Yung Jake, Leslie Kulesh, and Jesse Darling, were selected specifically for their established practices, ranging from poetic internet confessionals to humorous commentaries on exhibitionism and experimental new-media portraiture.
