I occasionally dabble in the Art World. I have curated exhibitions in New York and written a bit of art criticism (see pg. 18 of this.) I intend to do more of this as time and opportunity allows.
I've recently given an interviews on the aesthetics of tattoos at Aesthetics for Birds (interviewed by Roy Cook).
Earlier this year, I gave a talk on what makes watching Michael Haneke's Funny Games such an intriguingly unpleasant experience. You can see a video of this (fuzzy for the first 5 minutes) here. This year coming, I'll be giving a similar talk on Kathryn Bigelow's masterpiece Point Break.
I occasionally write non-academic stuff. Such as this.
