Desert Rain

trace resonance field

I spent last weekend out in 29 Palms with Pete and a few dozen other artists from around the UC system. Many of us installed work in the desert, and invited the public to come see what we had been up to. Pete and I worked together after the first symposium to come up with an idea for work we thought would make sense in the desert, which resulted in a piece called Trace: Resonance Field. It is a field of ceramic plates that are struck with rhythms controlled by seismic data from the surrounding mountains. I also had a chance to install Tamarisk in a more suitable location.

We’re working on editing our documentation into a cogent bit of video for the internet. For now, you can see photos of the process and some short video clips on flickr. New photos of Tamarisk will be online soon, as well.

There was quite a bit of press for the show. Among others, there was a writeup in artinfo, and a video and photo gallery by press enterprise.

Aggregating myself

For a time now, I’ve been posting things on flickr, vimeo, this blog, twitter, archiving projects in various ways, and using tools like delicious and (recently) ffffound to keep track of things that come to me through the tubes. My stuff, like many other people’s, exists in a lot of places on the internet, and it became far too many to continue to tack onto an increasingly tall sidebar. So I stripped everything out (pretty much), and replaced it with a new website.

LACDA Juried Show

ikebana altered photograph

‘Ikebana’, one of my restructured photographs, was accepted into a juried show at the Los Angeles Digital Art Center. It’s a 32″x 12″ semi-floral image that abstracts a photograph I took of a restaurant district in Osaka. I’m looking forward to seeing the work on paper, as I haven’t yet been able to find an affordable printer in NYC.

If you live in/around LA, stop by the gallery between April 10 and May 3 to see my work and that of a whopping 39 others. I’m going to see if I can make it to the opening on April 10, since I’ll be in San Francisco that week/end.

The images were created with Processing.
