As if I haven't been busy enough between producing theatre and my art career I'm actually hard at work in my fleeting off time on a new Boarding School record tentatively titled Automatic Hiawatha. It'll be out sometime before the end of 2016 but I decided to drop a teaser of a few tracks (still in demo form) in the meantime.
|Viridescent no. 01 ©2016|
New series Viridescent sort of spontaneously birthed itself out of the Digital Debris practice. More4 focused on impressionisti, painterly manipulated portatuer than the repatitive pop art style of debris' fractured glitches. It's yet another exploration of the way technology interfaces with expression. Memory has always been best represented as a disolve to me, an inkblot bleeding at the edges of perception and conciousness. A little nightmarish, a little sexy, a queasy green feeling of fear and envy.

This collection of recent works from my on-going Digital Debris series are an exploration of new technologies, Pop Art call backs, and embracing glitch, and data bending applications as a form of art making. They serve as 21st Century process paintings; crunching low rez archival works, HD selfies and video stills into technicolor Rorschach tests.

Not one to rest often enough, I'm currently in Seattle WA doing research and networking for VR filmmaking projects for 2016 which is super exciting, terrifying, ground breaking and happening very fast... But last night restless and a wee bit drunk armed with only an iphone 4 and a red lit basement guest room i got inspired. here's a few brief digital pieces created on the fly late last night.
