Conference Interventions — Ongoing

During GDC 2014, I grew tired of all the attention being paid to crappy games with predatory business models as well as the gross worship of capital. In response, I forged a few dozen GDC name badges for the CEO of, makers of Candy Crush, and handed them to members of the game dev counter culture.

For Elizabeth Stark's birthday party / impromptu friend-conference in 2014, I volunteered to make nametags. Along with the branding and a space to write one's name, there was an algorithmically generated silicon valley corporate title created from a carefully selected corpus.
