I am the editor of Triple Canopy (, a magazine based in New York. Since 2007, Triple Canopy has advanced a model for publication that encompasses digital works of art and literature, public conversations, exhibitions, and books. This model hinges on the development of publishing systems that incorporate networked forms of production and circulation. Working closely with artists, writers, technologists, and designers, Triple Canopy produces projects that demand considered reading and viewing. Triple Canopy resists the atomization of culture and, through sustained inquiry and creative research, strives to enrich the public sphere.

How Far Is Near

On February 6–8,  2015, Triple Canopy presented How Far Is Near, a series of conversations at Material Art Fair in Mexico City.
