" Klaus-Vineyard and the cast have honored Mac’s play, but kicked it up a notch with their with great attention to making the characters’ internal conflicts seem real. Access is a theme around which much of Taylor Mac’s work revolves. Defunkt lets you in for a while to a version of Mac’s past, through a joy ride of the transformative power of play.

Eight naked men, in alphabetical order in my bed. As I finalize the last remaining shoots for the bedroom series in Portland and gear up for my next grand adventure this summer I thought I'd revisit some of the previous shoots with a few outtakes. Enjoy

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.
