Edgewater Oriented Ontology is a body of work developed over a period of two years. The projects all stem from an emotional and philosophical journey grounded in the Edgewater neighborhood of Chicago. Themes of refuge, grief, nature, technology, and physics are woven throughout the projects.

After iterations of several of the projects were shown in other venues, including a content-sharing collaboration, the work culminated in a solo exhibition in April of 2015 at the C33 Gallery in Chicago. 

The C33 Gallery exhibition was partially supported by the Albert P. Weisman award.
