I created, a web generator of apologies. It’s a joke. 

④ Speculative Design & Play

Speculative design is an important part of my practice. It allows me to imagine alternative futures, raise awareness of emerging issues, make commentary about social problems and foster interdisciplinary collaboration. Plus, it’s fun! 

Inspired by trends of online dating culture and the sadness of our lost socks, artist Ingrid Tremblay and I created Dating Socks, an app for single socks to find matches and have a new chance at love.

As I became a more frequent user and translator of Wikipedia, I discovered the ‘Hoaxes Page,’ a list of bogus entries that survived for years without being noticed. Included on this list were about a dozen fictional music bands. I designed cover art for these fake bands based on the stories of their removed Wikipedia pages—bands such as James and the Pontoons, The Rock Gang and Slow Blind Driveway.

More recently, I co-taught Collaborating with AI: Art, Ethics & Play with metaLAB’s Sarah Newman at the Harvard Graduate School of Design, where we encouraged students to create disciplinary fiction using generative AI tools.
