In 2020,  I founded New Monuments Taskforce, a conceptual art project guised as a fantastical municipal agency. Through this platform, I convened a group of Bay Area artists, cultural workers and organizers to form a task force, or a brain trust, to create public facing initiatives which create space for the dialogue, design and development of New Monuments in the Bay Area. This work is really an effort to create seats at the proverbial table, create timely points for entry into civic processes and challenge top-down notions of monument making.

Our inaugural initiative was The Relic Report. Though initiatives range from publications to exhibitions to collaborating with local artists/organizations to workshops, including:
a public art journal on monuments and memorials
a workshop centered on AR in the Public Realm
Digital Zine spotlighting innovative public art
