His research often takes critical, historiographical, or philosophical approaches to site and location, networks and archives through artistic and curatorial practice and writing. He is interested in how social and technological infrastructures influence the formation of worldviews and how countercultural strategies of circumvention or navigation can resist homogenous cultural production.
