    Where forward thinking terrestrials share ideas and information about the state of the species, their planet and the universe, living the lives of science fiction. Introduction
    Featuring Powers of Ten by Charles and Ray Eames, based on an idea by Kees Boeke.
    After being an avid spectator of the Space Collective for about a year, I have been eager to post something related to the aims of this collaborative web site. Being a recent graduate of the UCLA Design | Media Arts program, there have been more than a few projects that I find represents the human desire to advance civilization to its most purely evolved potential.

    Within this post, is a video project that was completed for an experimental film making class this past summer at UCLA. The video is completeley independently produced, edited, and scored, which really personifies my idealization of abstract filmaking at that particular time. I think that with this digital video piece, titled Garbage In Garbage Out, my attempt was to tap into my subconscious a bit and evoke some symbolism pertaining to Los Angeles, at least in terms of the decaying facade. Hopefully, viewers will basically see an introspective element, in which I discreetly tried to put the person behind the video camera (me) into the film itself, without being biographical, but rather psychologically fractured. While I can't relate this completely to "the future of everything", hopefully there will be some universal truth within this short film.
