‘The Virtues and Vagaries of Online Publishing’ Interview

“I don’t think of online vs. offline exhibition as very different at all, actually…I would never argue that looking at pictures on a monitor is the same as experiencing physical prints in a traditional exhibition. But I’m actually more interested in exploring the web browser as an exhibition space, if only because an online show is likely to be seen by more people. And the social nature of the web continues to inspire me, so I plan to keep working with that in-between space, presenting experiences for a global, online audience while providing a platform for them to interact with and learn from each other.”
