Spamming Gagosian. As Art, 2010-ongoing
Spamming Gagosian. As Art invites users to one-click their way to instant stardom and fortune all through a simple PHP script. And it comes from my server account so no legal repercussions! A single user click sends appx. 10 emails to a series of Gagosian's personal and professional email accounts, including his international gallery/museum submission offices. Spamming Gagosian. As Art can be found on the ole world wide web and is accessible to the public at large. {Spam here.}

Pirating For Jesus, 2009-ongoing
I "steal" objects of nominal value and bring them to various churches leaving them at the site as sacrificial donations for the Messiah. I built a website with online map that tracks the stolen objects, the religious donation sites, and the respective dates that said donations were finalized. Project is ongoing.

Project Portrait 100, 2013
Project Portrait 100 is an experimental social practice project and "crude qualitative case study" inviting the public at large to respond to a series of calls via Craigslist to paint my portrait for the chance of randomly procuring a money order for $100.00 (randomly = participant's name literally picked from a hat). I received over 200 inquiries via email and a number of final portrait submissions, although a significant proportion of individuals (over 90%) were not interested in particpating unless they were paid for their work--the promise of possibly receiving $100.00 after being selected at random was apparently of little appeal. It should be noted that one name was ultimately selected from a hat: Katy Vanderburg from WA; she was mailed a check for $100.00 in 2013.
