48" x 48" poster, 2006
An information mapping project
visually illustrating current global wildfire trends. The
project reveals that wildfire behaviors have changed for the
first time in history — due to climate change and other
human-caused factors. Global wildfires are currently a major
threat to biodiversity conservation.

'Chiros' was a collabration with
new media artists Melanie Crean and Rory Solomon. Over the
course of 8 years, Melanie Crean interviewed 15 HIV positive
women. The interviews are personal essays about how the women's
perceptions of time changed
since being diagnosed. They
often express both an urgency related to chronological time, and
occassional interruptions by chiros,
suspension of time during happy moments. As a way to visualize
the chiros moment, we created an alternate clock
alongside the interview videos. The clock responds to the words
and moods of the women in order to capture that perceived moment
of time not exsiting.
