MATERIALS: Custom circuit and software. Board. The collective intelligence of mankind.

DIMENSIONS: 2" x 4" x 30"

DATE: 2007

DESCRIPTION: "Smartboard™" is an above-average-intelligence two by four which enjoys leaning against a wall and sharing its knowledge with anyone who will listen.

STATEMENT: I'm primarily interested in making technological art which reflects upon humanity, our place in the world and our relationships with each other, an often frustrating goal when dealing with the mechanics of circuits and bytes. And sometimes I like to make remote controlled loaves of bread or talking two by fours.
