An earlier datamoshed video. If analog film directs the viewers' thought processes, the use of datamoshing in digital video calls direction and even the physicality of space into question while remaining true to the materials.

School - Conversation Piece

This is "Conversation Piece," my final project for seminar last semester. Sorry for such a crappy picture. My camera died during the last week of school, so this is from a friend's Facebook photos. Actually, this is only half of the work.

Using software called Isadora (the same thing I used for Color of Dissonance - I masked off all but the speech bubbles for the display of video and ran my datamoshed film on communication through them. This was then projected onto the surface of the canvas, lining up with the paiinted speech bubbles. Hopefully in the near future I can get a video of the complete work, but in the meantime put those imaginations to use!

Some ideas that went behind this - datamoshing and continuity in film, that is, trains of thought; the history of speech bubbles and codified symbols in art.

Facebook Experiment: 14 People an Hour Ago

Here's one of my projects for my painting seminar class. I asked everyone I knew on Facebook to use the Graffiti application and communicate in some form or fashion using only 1 color what they were doing in the hour before logging on. I then took the resulting 14 Graffiti and made a composite image. This was then interpreted into a painting. Conceptually it has some holes, such as the fact that I tagged people in the note and added my own take on the resulting composite into the painting, but I feel like it's a good start.
