Beyond race, gender, class and nationality one can define a human by personal type. Two tests exist readily available online. At Human Metrics I answered 72 Yes/No questions to find out that among 16 possible types I am an INFP, or a Healer, which apparently only pops up 1 in 100, so if the permanent colony is 100 people divided by world...

I came across this as I was searching for 'control' on the internet... something worth thinking about. This is not directly related to my current project. or is it not? What about the space collective?

Ok...this might be a bit out of place, but I'm posting it nonetheless. It's a quirky video on downtown LA. The editing is a bit hard to watch at times (too much, too fast makes me dizzy), but I found it to be an good example of developing interest/fascination out of the most mundane of things.

The Clapper is an old high-tech device. It is just one demonstration of human's infinite desire to control. This may sound exagerrating but I think it is valid. "let you turn things on and off from anywhere in the room, just plug in the clapper and use television, lamp, stereo, almost anything you want to turn on and...

working on book spreads- I am feeling the need to stay very organized, maybe check myself in for a spiritaul cleansing and mental one at that- so many components to fit in together- I am just hoping that it will all come together the way I imagine it to be.

Tuesday began the one week journey into the intensely immersive experience of Coachella. I was one VJ on a team of five who performed in the dance tent (Sahara) with every DJ/band for the full 3 days(except the few that brought their own people). We had the opportunity to work on two 20x30 ft LED screens, plus curtain with an embedded LED grid....

I decide that the Nonin Bluetooth Heart Meter/Oximeter was the best and most affordable choice for wireless sensing heart rate and respiratory data. The order was placed so now it was time to figure how I would take this data and bring it into Processing for use in manipulating content. Because I wouldn't have the unit for a few days yet, I began...

My original idea about how/where the video would be projected was focused on the surface itself. I feel that the surface should have some sort of either organic or curved shape. A shape like the topography of a map would be ideal, though a more dome/curved like shape would work as well. The first intuition was to take a large piece of...

The visuals for my piece will take videos of nature that represent your own memories or that of those in your social network(friends/family). These memories will be reinterpreted using conditions of the individual such as motion, heart rate, and respiratory rate. The video element will then be created by blending blurred video of nature with...

Last week a workshop was given by our TA, Jacob on the basics of Arduino gave examples on how it could be incoporated into our own projects. Arduino is a chipboard is able to take data from different hardware sensors and bring it into processing. Jacob and I discussed different methods in which an Arduino could be used to take data from a heart...

What is the self to be aware of it? Are the mind and the self the same thing? Does the self exist in the mind? Or is the mind occupying the self? Doesn't the self pertain to our body in its material surroundings? Isn't the self the manifestation of our behaviours which are merely the result of our environment? Makes me think of a 'bad seed' or...

Dust and dirt rise, settle and spin on an empty lot. A massive city sprawls like an embossed array of LED’s. The wind is desert hot and pooling at a point where the ocean breeze can only look. Small barefoot feet walk on dirt that is littered with broken glass, small stones, and bits of city waste. A young feminine voice is humming...

I started this blog a with some videos from the democratic revolution in Nepal. Largely ignored in Western media, it proves that freedom is taken not given. There are some battles to be won on Earth before we can venture out into the Universe. Read this article

“The light of memory, or rather the light that memory lends to things, is the palest light of all. I am not quite sure whether I am dreaming or remembering, whether I have lived my life or dreamed it. Just as dreams do, memory makes me profoundly aware of the unreality, the evanescence of the world, a fleeting image in the moving...

What was it? Does it matter? Does it ever? Sometimes it does. Certainly, there are states in life when even a passing glance alters reality. It’s the whisper a dying parent lays into a child’s ear. Was that the last great secret or another empty pledge. It burns a path into the viscous channels of our psyche and starts to massage the enamel...

What if we started by unraveling the space between matter? Try to stop and build on the silence. What then? Who now? Why that? Is our essence tucked into the margins of our devices? What happens when we look to rebuild from the beginning? Our first breath, step, laugh, wiggle. Can we transubstantiate the form? Can we predict the position...
