I'm currently engaged in a number of research projects across a variety of media.
- Video – I produced and edited “Glitter Dust: Finding Art in Dubai,” a documentary feature, which premiered at the 2012 Gulf Film Festival in the United Arab Emirates. The film combines HD video and animation to examine the contemporary art scene in Dubai.
- Text – I'm completing a book on the aesthetic history of Arabic script (from calligraphy to digital typography).
- Interface Design – I design, program, and build interactive “unmixing” terminals for the National Postal Museum and other Smithsonian institutions
- Curatorial – I moderate the “Diagrammatica Project” as a study of communication and information design. The project collects significant diagrams as models of visual and spatial reasoning
