"New American Quilts" is a site-specific installation and photographic project simulating branded edifice and the promise of abundance, inspired by the tradition of American quilting and the consumer landscape.
Adopting the formal conventions of the consumer landscape as constraint, the patchworks are built on-site from found materials and products. These highly geometric arrangements are made without permission and left until dismantled by consumers and staff. Photographs of the patchworks are then “woven” into blankets with the assistance of Walmart's personalized gifts department.
“New American Quilts” is made possible with funding from the VSCO Artist Initiative™.

Mass: an installation project about creating visual disruptions in places of mass.
Mass is a site specific installation project about creating visual disruptions in places of mass (to date: big-box stores, super-centers, etcetera). At an intersection between Street Art and Land Art, installations are made without permission, using found materials within the retail landscape. The works are made, photographed, then left to be experienced by passersby and ultimately dissembled by location staff. Photo documentation of Mass works are initially exhibited in a consumer landscape. Printed, framed (in unsold frames) and exhibited in-stores; all without permission.
AIGA is the oldest and largest professional membership organization for design. In 2015 West Michigan's AIGA chapter hosted the national leadership conference in Grand Rapids, Mi. CDB was commissioned to direct a film introducing Grand Rapids and it's design community to the conference attendees. The film is inspired by AIGA WM's design portfolio, its studio life and the city's grid. All imagery was achieved in camera.

Harvest season in Palouse, WA lasts about 2 months. In this time much of the town is covered by a blanket of dust. The dust gets thicker as you approach the grain elevator, where you'll find Rick and David. For the 2 months of harvest season, 14 hour days 7 days a week, Rick and David's lives are the grain elevator. Directing, unloading, loading, shoveling, sweeping, distributing, repairing, working. These photographs were taken at the Palouse grain elevator with a Polaroid Land Camera 250, late summer 2013.
