I’ve been working with WebGL and Web Audio API for the past little bit, mainly to see what’s possible. Here’s a small collection of things I’ve made with in-browser graphics. Radical Paintings is based on the feedback and drawing system I used to make several of my videos, but without the webcam input and with totally random colors. Escape! has a similar engine, but more...
Check out Radical Paintings, my first WebGL project that totally works in your browser and is awesome.
For a few months now I’ve been part of a ragtag crew of artists assembled by Lorna Mills and Rea McNamara for a monthly series of events, GIFs, tumblr posts, called SHEROES. It started with Lorna inviting me to create some Yoko Ono-inspired animations, which I happily obliged, especially since I was teaching myself character modelling and animation for other projects, and this seemed like a...

Inside the Depth Mapped vortex
I’ve been working on some kinect-based video systems lately. Here are some studies from that.
These Radical Hands is the latest in the “Radical” video series, all of which combine animation, experimental video, and throbbing synthetic sounds.
jst morfn a bunch of video takes I had lying around. This uses a Jitter patch that chooses some arbitrary morph points and creates the motion transition in realtime. In other words, auto-morph! Silky smooth melting of clips into each other.

“Identifying a “cool factor” about the idealism and informality of new media careers in the 2000s, the work schedule of the new media artist creates latent sexism and racism that is embedded in the egalitarian culture of job flexibility. In these environments, both male and female workers do not identify equity as a problem although women are awarded less projects, pay, or work in such...

The Science of Shyness… →
I’m thinking a lot about the social spaces that people create these days, in relation to some ideas I have for a project. This report on shyness by Dr. Zimbardo has some fascinating data. ” The steadily increasing percentage of young adults who report being shy (from the earlier 40% to the current nearly 50% level) may be analyzed as negative acculturation to a confluence of social...
To Be RGB For You “In distinction to this, the feedback coil of video seems to be the instrument of a double repression: for through it consciousness of temporality and of separation between subject and object are simultaneously submerged. The result of this submergence is … a kind of weightless fall through the suspended space of narcissism.” - Rosalind Krauss, 1976

Chuck D So glad to finally show this to you. Me and Weirdcore did this video for the Icarus Remix of a Chuck D/Eclectic Method track. I did all the FX layers and motion tracked madness in there and Eno did all the editing/compositing, and some serious rotoscoping. Original footage was shot over a red gradient background. I’m a total Public Enemy fan from the 5th grade, so this was an...
Status Update 2am. I’m still awake for you, dear internet.
One thing I always forget is how easy it is to reach out and tell someone how much you enjoy their work, and how awesome it feels when they write back. Recently when I’ve stuck my neck out - more often than not - they are also aware of my work. One artist I contacted ended up collaborating with me on a few things. Go find an artist whose work makes you feel more human, and send them an...

Sometimes I wonder about the comparative social relevance of finished experimental video works vs. quickly slapped together demos. I’m talking about myself here, but we could extend it to anyone working primarily with processes that generate video content in realtime. In the former case, there are usually multiple takes from a live-recorded process, edited together with some sort of sound...
