(all video selections require quicktime.)
i am a dedicated abstractionist. i design and perform on frameworks for improvisatory animation using laptops in club and party situations.
when working in club situations, i feel that my responsibility is to the vibe of the party. i think of myself as more of a light artist than a storyteller. i want people’s reaction to my work to be physiological in nature, instead of cognitive.
i want your palms to sweat, your pores to open, your pupils to dilate. shut up and and dance, and let all of the rest of the work around you do its work for you.

feedback explorations, circular decisions, a domestic core.
custom software, too much equipment, accidental movement.
(about four years ago, I released an absolutely free version of my performance software, including code, with no restrictions, called dervish.)
i am a time junkie. in a destructive fashion. i explore the mutability of time through computers, and investigate the shattering of temporal flow.

2 minutes from a 45 minute granular distillation of 5 minutes of video from 10 hours of realtime.
nothing is done
i think copyright is stupid. especially digital copyright. it's just numbers and sequences, and to claim endless ownership of said numbers and sequences is greedy and asinine.

when does content stop being content?
when does ownership evaporate?
when does history fade?
