I am currently working on the broad theme of “Digital Abstinence.” This work involves philosophical writing, performance, a large-scale art installation, and the drafting of reports geared to inform policy makers about the impacts of technology (particularly handheld devices) on the well being of children, teens, and the elderly. For a sampling from this project, see my article in Slate Magazine on the performance piece called “Digital Tabernacle.”
