My practice of curating is exercised outside the traditional confines of the museum and gallery and is largely influenced by DIY and open source processes. By blurring the lines between hacking and curation, my approach is to engage audiences through participatory platforms. In my curatorial work, I place an emphasis on building communities and providing structures to support them.

In this talk, I will describe a number of my curatorial experiments and how practices prevalent in the open source communities are influencing curatorial paradigms in visual arts.
