Frontier Fellowship at The Epicenter – I spent 6 weeks in Green River Utah this fall in the tiny town of Green River, Utah. I worked on building an AM radio transmitter and applying for a low-power FM broadcast license, taught a weaving workshop, took a lot of pictures, and generally spent a lot of time working, thinking, and getting intrigued by the pros and cons of rural, small town life. The most beautiful place I’ve ever been in the USA!
www.sunsetfootclinicsign.com – I made this site which is an accurate recreation of the Sunset Foot Clinic rotating sign on Sunset Boulevard in Echo Park, Los Angeles. Commonly known as “The Happy Foot Sad Foot Sign,” locals say that the sign has the power to predict the fate of your day, depending on which side you see first when you pass by. This piece was part of The Machine Project Field Guide to L.A. Architecture.
The Machine Project Field Guide to L.A. Architecture – I produced this series of 20+ performances, workshops, and events over the course of the summer, as curated by Mark Allen of Machine Project. It was an epic undertaking, but very rewarding and highly educational. I learned a lot about LA an got to know some of its crazier nooks and crannies, and work with a ton of great artists. Please click through to the project pages to see videos of each performance. Field Guide was funded by a grant from the Getty Foundation, and was part of the larger initiative Pacific Standard Time Presents: Modern Architecture in L.A. A nice write up in the LA Weekly here.
FAT Public Access – As part of FAT GOLD at Eyebeam in NYC, I organized an alternate A/V stream called FAT Public Access on which I hosted a series of performances, talks, lectures, and informal chats broadcast live from Eyebeam’s gallery space to the web.
