In 2013, I got married to my very favorite person, and, while that certainly qualifies as the highlight, the whole year was full of good things. To begin with, in the studio, I got to focus on some intriguing commission work and I started a new conceptual series of portraits.
And, outside the studio, things got interesting too. For one thing, my work went national. To explain: I spoke about the dangers of copyright at a technology conference in DC in the spring.
In Washington once again in September, I explored how art and science are both about questions instead of answers for an event at the American Association for the Advancement of Science headquarters as part of The Art of Science Policy show, which featured some of my work. My talk is available here.
Also, Crime Against Nature, the series and book which I launched in 2012, was translated into Chinese and featured variously across the Interwebs, most notably on BoingBoing, Hyperallergic, Apartment Therapy, Scientific American, and About.com.
And, finally, to celebrate my tenth anniversary as a full-time working artist, I wrote this e-book. It’s about how art marketing isn’t just about selling more art. You can read it here for free, or there’s a downloadable PDF of the book available for $3.
