Josh works at the intersection of creative computing, experimental publishing and social practice. His research focuses on open, collaborative and generative modes of cultural production such as commoning, critical making, queer hacking and FLOSS (free/libre/open-source software).

For MA Visual Communication, Josh runs New Genres, a research unit exploring emerging forms, processes and technologies, as well as Common Market, a publishing fair celebrating the free movement of ideas through the production of ‘theory objects’ — ideas, information and experiences designed to be remixed and redistributed. He is also a founding member of the Commons Research Group, supporting collective practices and critical/radical/decolonial pedagogies.

Josh is a recent recipient of Google’s Artists + Machine Intelligence Research Awards and Typographer-in-Residence at ArtCenter’s Hoffmitz Milken Center for Typography.

His work has been published and exhibited widely, most notably the guest-design of Emigre #59, part of the permanent collections of the Denver Art Museum, Design Museum, Museum für Gestaltung Zürich, MoMA and SFMOMA.

During 1999–2009, Josh practiced under the name Fake I.D. in collaboration with Yvan Martinez. Commissions include: Arkitip, Edwin, Emigre, The Face, Giorgio Camuffo, GLBT Historical Society, MTV, Nike, Urban Outfitters and Wieden+Kennedy.

During 1995–1997 Josh was a founding member of the performance art collective CCSIS (Creative Community Seriously I Swear) based in San Francisco, Mexico City and Caracas.

Josh holds an MFA in New Genres from the San Francisco Art Institute. His thesis project was supervised by Paul Kos, George Kuchar and Tony Labat.
