He is best known for his short film series Meditations on Revolution (1997-2003).

He was invited to exhibit in both the 2002 and 2008 Whitney Biennials, and has had solo presentations at the Museum of Modern Art, NYC, Jeu de Paume, Paris, Cinémathèque Française, Locarno International Film Festival, Rotterdam International Film Festival and at many other important venues.
