Critical Blogging Residence – Artengine and Apartment613

I’m happy to announce that I am beginning a year-long residency with Artengine and Apartment613 as Critical Blogging Resident. I’m excited to begin this partnership with a trip to the Elektra Festival in Montreal from May 1-5, and will be using the blogs throughout the next year as creative spaces for critical discourse around the media arts and creative technological expression.
