Walk A Mile is a satirical tour agency that packages empathy into a consumable product.
Together with Ava Burke, I created this piece in response to the troubling trend of using "empathy" as self-aggrandizement. We believe this actually derails important conversations about the complex issues facing our world.
To be clear, we do not condone or support the views and tourism packages described on the Walk A Mile site. It is not a real business.
Fetch is a mobile-friendly web app I made to find dog-friendly places near you. It uses a database of locations – bars, cafes, parks, etc – that allow your canine best friend, a database created through user input. People can upload new places they find with their dogs so others can enjoy even more canine companionship in their own lives.
This is an auto-dossier website I put together showcasing the amount of information, and what can be inferred from that data, we put online on a daily basis. After a week of documenting my online and in-person movements capable of being tracked (i.e. tracker bots on the sites or security cameras), I quickly realized that I am an open book when it comes to commercial and governmental surveillance. We all are. And there is really no way around it.
Might as well put it on my own site and have an obviously intrusive NSA-guy peering into my every online move. At least that gets the secrecy out of the way.
A short web app in which you can create Bo's dog version of haikus.
He counts specific numbers of words for each line rather than syllables. The console also logs the number of each word written in the entire Boku, but as its not that interesting it doesn't display to the screen with the finished Boku.
