My design work extends across a wide range of media, and I don't think about it as something wholly separate from other creative work such as art and writing. Rather, it is a specific way of addressing structure and intentions and something that fosters useful forms of critical thinking about the made world.
In my practice, the most design-centric work falls into three broad and overlapping areas:
—speculative design: projects that posit alternatives to the cultural status quo, such as the Museum of Forgery website;
—visual and environmental design: encompassing sets, projections, installations, and interactive events; and
—communication design: books, websites, fonts, posters.
installations and sets
Since the mid 1990s I have been creating the visual and environmental design for my multimedia performance works such as Reading Frankenstein and The Roman Forum Project. In the 1980s, I created set designs for choreographers such as Gary Palmer and Heidi Duckler. More on installation and set design....

I have designed several Type 1 PostScript fonts for use in various projects and publications. More on font design...
Most of these are sites designed as part of large-scale or long-running projects. I have been designing websites since 1994, and I am a proponent of such principles as cross-platform compatibility, low-bandwidth access, ease of updating by nonexperts, and legibility. More on website design...
