My work has been out of circulation for some time and you keep asking me what I’m up to. A new website IS forthcoming, but in the meanwhile, I’ve put up a gallery that samples some of my recent work. I hope this keeps y’all in the loop.
I finally got around to putting together video documentation of the Off World installation! Off World is a 24-hour, month-long interactive public installation part of the 2009 Contact Toronto Photography Festival. It is an exhibition of photographs and video by filmmaker Mateo Guez and commissioned by curator Sanaz Mazinani, realized in situ as a 24-hour interactive [...]
the video is intended to be played vertically. Just tilt your head. Using the Processing language, an image of da Vinci’s La Jaconde – the most reproduced image in the world – is corrupted over time. With each conversion between image formats, a frame is recorded. The title coyly ref- erences Marcel Duchamp’s 1919 readymade. [...]
Net Change is a week-long event designed to explore how social technology can bolster social change, presented by the Social Innovation Generation team at MaRS. I heard about an art competition over email, entered, and ended up winning. I really don’t think they should have called it an “Art Show”, as it ended up being [...]
There is a really prominent article about Off World in Eye this week that is quite favourable – honouring us with 4 stars. You can read it HERE. Just in time for the closing party this Sat, May 30 7-9 @ Camera Bar. Come by one and all. I put up a page of other [...]
Off World is a street-level public installation that runs 24/7 during the month of May as part of the 2009 Contact Toronto Photography Festival.
The installation features 11 looped videos playing on cell phones, accompanied by an illuminated text panel. While watching the videos, images are sent directly to your cell phone, either via Bluetooth or email.
MYTIME was recently featured on SPACETV‘s The Circuit. Many people have reported difficulty viewing the show online, so I’ve pulled the stream down and re-encoded it here for convenience. You can download the video in .mov format or watch it here. [display_podcast]
I have a piece in the upcoming Framework Foundation Timeraiser. It’s a great cause and concept. In a nutshell it’s an art auction. Bidders bid their time as professionals. It isn’t a statement about how time is money. Rather, it’s a great way to get new people involved with worthy organizations which simultaneously supporting the [...]
There was a long hiatus of a hundred years where drawing did not play any role in mathematics because hand and pencil and ruler were exhausted. They were well understood and no longer in the forefront. And the computer did not exist… One had to create intuition from scratch. Intuition, as it was trained by [...]
This photo is pretty old. Maybe 1995? Can’t be certain. It was taken at the Chicago Comicon. I still chuckle every time I see it.
I have no idea why I haven’t been clued onto this sooner, but TED.com has got to be one of my new favourite sites. TED stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from those three worlds. Since then its scope has become ever broader. The annual [...]
