Finally, some open ended time to start blogging again. For the last few months, I have been churning out work for pay as well as working on new paintings, films and more.
I just got back from a residency at the Wexner Center for the Arts. I used my time to complete two new digital films, "Sibylline Fracture" and "Gizmo Kaleidoscope." More on these later...suffice it to say that "Gizmo" is Coney Island and "Sibylline Fracture" is a response to the BP oil spill in Louisiana.
I've had a lot of action on the film front. This week I'm bi-coastal, I have a digital film in the New York Independent Film Festival showing Friday night at City Cinemas Village East Cinemas and one in the FEED_BACK show at at the Los Angeles Center for Digital Art. The FEED_BACK exhibit premise is a zone of participation, input, response, and transformation that engenders an awareness of the cogent ability of idigital technologies to galvanize the world culture in a constructive manner. For tickets to the New York showing of "Michael's Snow" click here.
There will be more video news coming up. I received a Puffin Foundation grant for Videos on Broadway so it is becoming a reality. We will be kicking off the first screening in the fall so let me know if you have a exciting digital art short to show.
In the meantime, it's back to a hot studio with a paint brush in hand.
