I recently attended the FILE festival in Sao Paulo, Brazil. There I exhibited my work entitled Waves and participated in the FILE symposium. I took a few shots of my work with my iphone cam so the quality is not that great but it will give you a sense of the installation. Honored to be part of such a great festival and to have exhibited with some fantastic artist.
In November 2010 I participated in the Digital Arts Festival Taipei 2010. I was invited there by the 404 Festival and I presented my work Every Step. For the opening weekend I met with participants and outfitted them with cameras to create animations, you can see all the animations created by participants here.
I have a solo show coming up at the Duncan Gallery of Art at Stetson University. The show, entitled Waves Walks, features two bodies of work. A series of works that uses real-time wave buoy data as a means for generating sounds and images and a series of work based on walking. The opening is August 27 6:00-8:00pm and runs until the 28th of October. Below are some in progress installation shots.
The two pieces pictured below use real-time wave height and period data from wave buoys off the coast of Florida. Using custom software the buoy data is translated into low frequency sound waves. The sound waves shake objects such as bowls of water, these objects respond to the sound waves by creating abstract patterns.
I created software that abstracts images I took while swimming in the ocean. Each projection has a design element which changes size according to the current size of the waves off the coast of Florida.
MPG: Mobile Performance Group was invited to perform at the Intermedia Festival hosted by Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis. I am working on an interface for the iphone/itouch, using the OSC based mrmr app. I developed an interface that allows the public to control the manipulation of live video and send text messages which becomes part of the live video projection. Users are be able to do things such as mix video, choose video clips, apply effects, and use the iphone’s accelerometer to rotate and position the text and image. The festival was a blast and I will post some documentation soon.
Last Month I presented my project Every Step at City Centered – A Festival of Locative Media and Urban Community The festival was located in the Tenderloin District of San Francisco and featured some great artist. A great event in an incredible city, I miss it already!
