I wrote Collapse, a short Web Audio composition about a lost automation device walking beneath an empty megacity.

I made a mixtape to explore the sound of life throbbing on a damaged planet; the sound of entire worlds rising and falling, screaming out of grief and elation.

My family and I created this digital drawing that was later exhibited inside a corner store in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. In the image, you can see my sister and I holding the remnants of an ancient tradition in which molten lead is cast into cold water and used to foretell our family's fate for the new year.

In 2017 I performed a series of LARPed rituals with my sister and various other collaborators. Documentation from these experiences was exhibited in The Wrong New Digital Art Biennale in Hong Kong and Seoul, and was also featured on AQNB and Tzvetznik.

I sometimes craft noise music and mixtapes under the alias of DESTROYER_12. Humans have described this work as "ecological gabber" and "music that guides the listener through the portals of liminality". My music has been released by BRAT Records and has been featured in Disc Magazine.

I collect videos of non-human forces including air compressors singing in unison, nibbling mice, and dandelion seeds self-organizing in the wind.

In 2017 I made a 360º video about blue pandas from outer space, emergent lifeforms, and non-linear love. The soundtrack was composed using crowdsourced audio recordings collected from fifty classmates and family members.

In 2016 I had a solo exhibition at Gärtnergasse, an artist-run gallery in Vienna, Austria.

In 2015 I had a solo exhibition in an abandoned building in Toronto, Canada.

Many years ago I regularly took photographs. This work has been exhibited at the Independent Photography Festival in Melbourne, Australia and has been published by Incandescent Zine, CZE magazine, lightrad.ius, Waterfall Zine, and Camera Diynamite.
