David has collaborated with several artists and composers including: Jon Mueller (Physical Changes, DVD/CD/LP, published by Table of the Elements / Radium, 2009); Christopher Burns (Before the Seiche, published as part of a DVD/book in 2010); and Scott Tuma (visual elements for live performance, Fall 2015). In addition to his own moving-image work, David has been working as a cinema programmer and curator of film since 2001.

David received 2019 GAP Award funding for production support of a new film. Using a spring-wound 16mm Bolex camera, the film will be primarily shot in the Pacific Northwest in the workshop of a horologist and explore conceptions of time, labor, and material culture.
