This is my book.



I'm currently at work on a second book, tentatively titled Fake People, that considers digital performances of approximation, verisimilitude, and dissembling through a theatrical lens.  I shared early content from this project at Interpolations 1, a new symposium on computation and the performing arts at the University of Toronto in October 2023.


I'm also working on a project about Brecht and self-driving cars, with my colleague Mark Shepard at the University at Buffalo.  It's called Autonomous, and when there's more to share, I'll let you know.
