"An exploration of how art can be surprising, delightful AND helpful."
I wake up everyday thinking about how art can be delightful AND helpful. My current project BOTJOY is a nine-year exploration of this idea. I experiment with the Bots by making thousands painted small on the back of dominos (most recent Bot count is 55,456), and public art murals that help connect and inspire the communities where they are on display. In 2014 I "Let go" of the Bots and invited the world to make them too. Bot making is now a worldwide movement with hundreds of people making them for their own communities worldwide.
