I'M INTERESTED IN HELPING PEOPLE EXPERIENCE THE WORLD IN NEW WAYS. 

My upcoming book Hacking Experience: New Tools from Cognitive Science for Artists is in preparation for Punctum Books (NYC). It's a book that translates cognitive science into tools that radically enhance the way artists tell stories. I design experiences in the physical world as a form of myth making by harnessing attention and spatial rhetoric. I'm also principal designer for Geologic Cognition Society, a post-disciplinary research-driven design group. I've lived in ChicagoEngland, Nigeria, Papua New Guinea, and Hawai'i (among other places), Hawaii made the most sense to me. At the moment, I live in Ohio and I'm exploring the Great Lakes region for a few projects I'm wrapping up.

A NEW KIND OF SEA SALT FROM OCEANS THAT LACK PHYSICAL GEOGRAPHY

THIS IS THE FIRST TRUE SEA SALT FROM OCEANS THAT DON'T EXIST.

update! my project was successfully funded on Kickstarter, thanks to all who backed!

Supply chains are a kind of infrastructure, they move something from somewhere to somewhere else, stopping all kinds of places along the way. The products and commodities that move through the supply chain do a lot of traveling and it means that products from really far away show up in your local neighborhood at local stores. What ends up on the shelf, though, is something that is more than the sum of it's parts. It's latent seawater, ready to be reconstituted and converted into a new type of enhanced sea salt. 

This is one way that I'm working to landscape the infrastructure of supply chains. I've just launched the Improbable Oceans Sea Salt campaign on Kickstarter for my latest project: Improbable Oceans. You can back this project and actually get some of this salt for yourself as the reward for backing. (Update: visit ImprobableOceans.com to enroll in the newsletter experience) 

If you like the kind of work I do, please back this project and share it with your friends. Follow the project on Twitter @ImprobableOcean and use the hashtag #TASTEMYSALT for the extended story.

Thanks!
