My next venture is to construct an object out of hexadecimal in 3D. In order to do so I have acquired the help of a 3d designer I met on reddit (who has been extremely helpful and knowledgeable) and I will use a build at home makerbot kit to construct a 3d printer and print my sculpture.
Here are just a few sketches of what we have come up with so far. These are just testing out the concept of creating an object printed code. The finished product will resemble a chair used by Joseph Kosuth for conceptual purposes.
As of now the only thing that stands between me and my sculpture is funding.
Please donate to my kickstarter fund

Femanon is a commentary on female internet presence and a spoof on the youtube makeup tutorial and. By exaggerating the act of a typical beauty regiment, I reveal its absurdity and the absurdity of the attitude toward women online. The strong, mainly male voice of underground internet culture promotes female objectification. When revealed that the anonymous poster is a female the usual response is "tits or gtfo" (get the fuck out). But is not only males to blame, many female posters exhibit attention seeking behavior such as cam whoring (just what it sounds like), excessive posting on facebook, beauty polls, and other shallow ways to seek approval. Many underage V& (pronounced vanned. illegal under-aged users) post pictures of themselves asking if they are beautiful. This insecurity of females online feeds into the masculine voice of the internet (and it doesn't help that 95% of the internet is pornography.

Sept 27th 2011 mark your calendars! On this day I will be holding a virtual birthday party in honor of my one year Reddit birthday. Reddit birthdays are celebrated each year on the day you created your account. Many Redditors choose to make something to post in honor of that day. For my Reddit birthday I will be posting skype links to several computers that will be placed at my birthday table. I will host video chats with anonymous people from around the world as my guests at my birthday party. As a party favor each guest will receive reddit gold. This birthday party will be a well choreographed performance that will also be streamed live on ustream for all to enjoy. As guests sign in and out of the party I will have a team of stage hands switching chat screens, taking screen shots, and logging usernames for distribution of party favors. Invitations will be posted on reddit the week of the party.

Reverse Abstraction is a series of works created in binary and hexadecimal code. These codes are the basis of a computer’s language. The ones and zeros stand for the processors most basic functions of on and off. The works in this series are taking the idea that this is how a computer would perceive art. This is reversing the abstraction of art to the computer, abstract being a word used both in art and computer science. A work of art is either abstract to the human viewer and understandable to the computer or vice versa.
What is art but a message to be decoded?
