2020.11.15  Collaborative a/v performance with Andrei Jay for Vidicon



On Sunday, November 15, I performed a collaborative a/v set with Andrei Jay, which was livestreamed as part of Vidicon. This year was the second edition of Vidicon, and due to the pandemic, it took place entirely online over four days, with performances by many wonderful video artists and friends. The set I played with Andrei was one of the strangest performances I’ve done yet. My favorite part was performing on musical saw while video of me was being processed through a slit scan frame buffer. We had a lot of fun! Additionally, the scanlines.xyz team and I were able to contribute to the festival’s video streaming and chat infrastructure, to help create an online venue outside of major social media sites.

2020.10.05  Recursive News at /’fu:bar/



I participated in a livestreamed performance with some friends at this year’s edition of /’fu:bar/ Glitch Art Festival! The festival is usually held in Zagreb; this year it is fully online.

Our performance is titled Recursive News and used 1990’s broadcast video equipment to re-interpret cable access style news broadcast into an echoing void of infinite recursion. We streamed live from the Phase Space studio in Brooklyn.

Performance: Recursive News
Who: Paloma Kop, Andrei Jay, Allen Riley, Rob Yohe, Irfan Brković
When: Monday October 5, 2pm (NY time) / 8pm (Zagreb time)
Where: the internet

2020.10.01  Interval II: Performance at Synesthesia



On Thursday, October 1, I did a live a/v performance at Interval II, an event combining music and video, sculpture, and dance, curated by Testu Collective and held on the open-air rooftop of Synesthesia. I greatly appreciate the organizers’ ability to manifest a physical gathering while maintaining safe pandemic practices. It was wonderful to experience performances by fellow artists ÉMU (Maria Takeuchi), Impakt, Testu Collective, Yoko Murakami, and Will Atkins beneath the full moon.
