Oren's previous work focused on interactive installations of DMX architectural lighting run by Max/MSP and open source 3D printing. While these interests remain in the background, he is currently exploring concepts of surveillance and is working on a series of drawings that he refers to as a "counterfeit digital" style that questions perceptions of digital vs. manual labor, translation of media, authenticity, and value.
