2020.09.30  Interval II: Performance at Synesthesia



I am doing 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. Tickets will be limited to ensure social distancing can be maintained, and masks will be required. I greatly appreciate the organizers’ ability to manifest a physical gathering while maintaining safe pandemic practices. Looking forward to experiencing performances by fellow artists ÉMU (Maria Takeuchi), Impakt, Testu Collective, Yoko Murakami, and Will Atkins.

2020.07.11  Coaxial Summer Series




I was thrilled to have my work included in the livestreaming program for Coaxial Summer Series on Saturday, July 11. The series continues every Saturday at 9pm PDT through August, and is hosted by Coaxial, a wonderful media arts organization in Los Angeles. Since in-person events are not an option right now due to the pandemic, this kind of virtual programming is even more vital.

2020.06.01  Scanlines.xyz forum



Some friends and I got together and set up a new discussion forum for DIY A/V things called scanlines.xyz. So far, it’s been a refreshing place to connect with friends and people with common interests, away from big corporate social media sites. It’s hosted on our own server, and we also run a livestreaming server, chat, and video hosting platform, all using open source software.
