Together with Angela Rossitto he runs The Wandering Room artist run initiative which they started with Sarah Werkmeister in 2008.

David/David is a collaborative practice he shares with fellow artist, David Spooner. They both have the same name of 'David'. Since 2009, they have collaborated on projects that often involve physical and mental endurance challenges. They capture their shared experiences through drawings, paintings, writing and video and present them alongside each other as art objects.
David acknowledges his art practice takes place on the stolen lands of the Woi Wurrung people of the Wurundjeri and that sovereignty was never ceded.
