His provocative work focuses on the visual representation of extremely large numbers relating to social issues, forcing us to confront the excesses of modern industrialized society. As a part of the APEX, the PortlandArt Museum is exhibiting his work titled Running the Numbers: An American Self-Portrait (3/7/09 through 7/12/09).
