co-founded a studio.
From 2018-2022 I co-founded Double Take Labs, an interactive creative technology studio, alongside technologist Josh Corn. We explored concepts around physical mechanics and interactive experiences with the ethos of “rigorous absurdity.” Rigor refers to the heavily researched histories and narratives we use to brainstorm and to treat every idea, serious or ridiculous, with the utmost attention to detail. Absurdity is our practice using humor and delight to make complex concepts more accessible. In 2018 we were community members at NEW INC, the New Museum’s incubator for art and technology.
Our studio crafts unique interactions with a touch of absurdity. In our five years together, we worked with many clients including MoMA Retail, Sloomoo Institute, McCann, the Health Design Lab at Jefferson University, and more. We created a One-Armed Robot Circus that performed at NYSCI, installed Ghosts at Brookfield Place, printed Facefetti and built a bicycle race for CAMP Stores. As personal projects, we constantly created experiments and conceptual studies that challenged how we interact with others and explored the magic and humor in technology.
