LEDs, single-board computer, acrylic, copper tape, steel, paint

32 x 32 x Z repurposes the digital display as a medium for spatial composition. Thirty-two columns of acrylic sheets, each outfitted with 32 rows of RGB LEDs, are generated using computer software to randomly vary the distances of the LEDs along the z-axis. When viewed straight on, the squares appear to exist in a single plane, effectively forming the pixels of a low resolution display. As the viewer moves around the work, the perceived plane splits apart, and the video breaks down into an abstraction of colors.

By deconstructing the digital display into its base units and transforming it from 2D to 3D, 32 x 32 x Z calls attention to the physicality of a tool that despite always being looked at, has become invisible.

Exhibited at PKM Gallery.

Ellsworth & Clyde

2012-2015

"Some classic menswear items rarely receive an update — the oxford shoe, neckties, sport coats — and most don't need one. But the Ellsworth & Clyde Magnetic Tie Bar proves that sometimes a little innovation in a time-honored staple is sorely needed. Doing away with the clumsy mechanical hinge, these tie bars use powerful magnets to hold your neckwear in place no matter how much you move or how hard the wind blows. Handmade from carefully-selected hardwoods, stained, and finished with durable leather instead of a hinge (and with two lengths on either side to suit any tie), these tie bars are as inventive as they are handsome." - uncrate.com

SoWeBo Hoops

SoWeBo Hoops

2016 / Maxrelax

Maxrelax worked with VSCO to install a series of basketball hoops in underprivileged streets in Southwest Baltimore (SoWeBo). The custom made hoops were located in areas where the residents had set up make shift baskets, and the backboards were painted by local graffiti artists. VSCO's article on the project can be found here.
