World of Art was commissioned by Mary Jane Jacob, printed on the reverse of the invitation for the public symposium, Taking Care of Your Art and Your Life, which was held at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2004, with support of the Emily HallTremaine foundation.
Commissioned by Stuart Keeler through Chicago's Lakeview East Chamber of Commerce, Fertile Ground is a story telling game.

The Studio, Print on Mesh, 110" x 247.5", 2009
Commissioned for this exhibition by the curators, my diagram sketches out the history of the artist studio in context. It is based on materials about the show Michelle Grabner and Annika Marie provided me with during the planning phase, including an advance copy of the book "The Studio Reader: On the Space of Artists" , a co-publication of the University of Chicago Press and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, edited by Mary Jane Jacob and Michelle Grabner.
The exhibition, "Effervescent Condition", at SAIC and at the Xuzhou Museum of Art, Xuzhou, China, in 2010, was curated by Fang-Tze Hsu. My contribution was a poster and projected animation based on conversations with Fang-Tze, and artists Nadav Assor, Florian Graf, Joshua Sampson, and Yefeng Weng, about their works for this show. For the exhibition in Xuzhou, the poster was printed with English text on one side and Simplified Mandarin on the other. In Chicago, the exhibition announcement was on one side, and the English version on the reverse.
