personal projects


Inspired by a Monkees interview in which Mike Nesmith encourages people to "dig things that are ugly" ("Like what?" "Oh, I don’t know, dig something like a garage door"), I started taking pictures of garage doors in various neighborhoods around San Francisco and posting them to Instagram. Although as it turns out, garage doors in SF are actually quite beautiful.

I occasionally used my phone to take short audio recordings of my surroundings, a way of capturing a moment in time without relying on my usual methods (photos and words). When I remember, I'll try to add them here.
