Peer, Peer, Peer, and Peer
Peer, Peer, Peer, and Peer is a private collaborative meeting space and publishing platform that explores consent, trust, synchronicity, and generosity on the peer-to-peer web. Created with Kit Son Lee, Will Mianecki, and Lai Xu, Peer, Peer, Peer, and Peer can only be accessed if we are all present on the site at the same time. Once on the site, the peers share and publish projects, readings, and references through a chat interface that also serves as a collective site navigation.

How to Get a Diamond
A near-obsessive search to obtain a diamond for free, tracked through a cryptic blog. The personality behind the site, Dee Diamonds, documents all her attempts to obtain a diamond on her own terms, whether through formal requests to distributors or time spent probing divorce forums and mine locations. Through layers of pop-up windows, readers follow her quest, simultaneously tracking the tension between societal expectations and personal desire.
