And It’s One, Two, Three …

November 23, 2016

what are we fighting for …

Flags have a haunting quality … post election especially.

Steve Lambert and I decided we would put up some earth flags as a reminder of what’s at stake and a tribute to what’s important.

We received some encouraging honks.

Our hope is that little gestures like this will encourage others to figure out ways consistently to do what you can — no matter the scale — to make the world a better place.

Performance at A Night of Alchemy

A little magic, a little comedy, our kind of alchemy.

A side project for A Night of Alchemy, A Blade of Grass’ 2016 fundraiser event. A group effort Scott Vermeire, helped with the writing, Steve Lambert was the MC /Magician connecting with the crowd over post election jokes and sleights of hand and my role was as the multi faceted: beekeeper, cat burglar, and tech savvy sequined magician’s assistant.

Screening & Surveillance

By entering the lobby at 5 Anderson St. in New Rochelle, NY you will be part of the next video project made from security footage.Using ongoing surveillance in the lobby of this building expands on themes represented in See, Hear, No Evil. Is your attention pulled in multiple directions? This video starts with the idea that our attention is and has always been contested space. The alternative, deep listening, is indigenous but often overshadowed in our daily lives.

Ideally Yours?

July 22, 2016

Ideally Yours?

Ideally Yours? is an collaborative art project where I’m inviting residents to help create a clay map/diorama of the Central Business District (CBD). Together we’ll create a clay sculpture that represents the citizen’s observations, hopes, and ideals. Over the course of the summer we’ll re-imagine the downtown area of New Rochelle; if you’re curious come by!

Arts Residency in the Queen City on the Sound

May 19, 2016

Many thanks to Residency Unlimited and New Rochelle Business Improvement District (BID) for an upcoming 3 month arts residency starting mid June 2016. Arts at 5 Anderson Street  will be both storefront/studio to six artists as well as a space for pop -up exhibitions throughout the summer. I’m excited to explore multiple aspects of research and integrate a series of projects that address power in public space and give voice and form to the ideals of New Rochelle residents through; broadcast, audio interventions, and collaborative sculpture and maybe even performance in a generous downtown storefront studio space. This new residency aims to thoughtfully explore how initiatives of urban development, rejuvenation and community planning can align with pressing concerns for the environment and future sustainability, materially as well as culturally.

Ryan Pratt and I return with a collaborative experimental composition Overtones and Undercurrents to the Riverside Drive Viaduct tunnel in Harlem for the third installment of a public art intervention series by the West Harlem Art Fund that will coincide with the Paris based Festival of Lights.

Overtones and Undercurrents will kick off the October 4th event at 4pm in the viaduct tunnel at 125th st. Utilizing the viaduct tunnel’s acoustics we will directionally project, explore, and fill the tunnel with manipulated partials from direct field recordings taken from the surrounding environment.

Should be fun — if you’re in the area stop by and say hello. Multiple performances and art events will happen throughout the evening along the viaduct corridor following our 4pm tunnel piece.
