Speaker of the House

I think there comes a time in everyone's life when they feel compelled to draw picture after picture of Republican Speaker of the House John Boehner. I started this blog to catalog my experiments in the medium.

Tangaroa, the god of the sea

This is an early cut my friend and I did for an independent artist in New Zealand. She makes installation art. We both liked what she did and wanted to support her by making a video that comprises the process. Feedback welcomed.

Culture Kitchen

I was perturbed by the rising xenophobia (or at least, anti-immigrant sentiment) in my city-state of Singapore. I decide to start a series of events celebrating the food and art of our many communities. The idea is to put people who wouldn't typically find themselves in the same room, much less at the same dinner table, in the same place and feed them great food. In the first instalment, we had Bangladeshis and South Indians, mostly construction workers, come to have biryani with Singaporeans and white collar residents/expats. In the second, we had walking tours of Little Myanmar, showcased all of the culinary highlights of the country, and also showed a great little film from indie Myanmar filmmakers. Of course it's debatable really how much of an impact this can really have on policy, but my hope is that we can at least start conversations and friendships.

The Ten Plagues of Egypt in a zine

I've been working for a couple years (slowly and sporadically) on making block cut illustrations for my own Haggadah (that's the book that guides participants through the traditional dinner that Jews have to celebrate Passover). While that project is still ongoing, I finally finished illustrations of the ten plagues that God visited on the Egyptians as punishment for refusing to release the Jews from slavery (according to the book of Exodus). I hand-printed them and put them in a little zine, and I really like how it came out! [more inside]

Same Rat, Different Hat

The debut record from Out of System Transfer, a neo-old-timey band who sing punk-influenced folk songs about the assassination of William McKinley, hitting cops in the head with a brick, and riding the subway. Their sound has been compared to the Holy Modal Rounders, Mojo Nixon, and Mischief Brew. With physical media sales becoming less viable, it made little sense to get CDs printed (plus, no one in the band even had a working CD player), but it also felt wrong to forego the great potential offered by album covers and liner notes, not to mention the feeling of having a tangible thing for fans to have. Thus, the record was released as a zine, (also bundled with the download as a pdf) with original artwork commissioned for each song by various Brooklyn-based artists. [more inside]

Market Music (The stock market as a reggae song)

I have completed a new fun data art project: I translated the ups and downs of the S&P 500 for the year into a reggae-ish song, while an animation represents the data visually and in sync with the music. It's been a record year for the S&P 500 -- and now you can hear it! [more inside]

Lonenote App

At times in my life, I struggled to connect with the people around me and found myself alone. Sometimes I felt at peace, sometimes it was really difficult. Lonenote is a mobile app where people can express these moments — whether peaceful, silly, or sad — through handwritten notes. My hope is that by sharing this experience we’ll feel a sense of connection when we’re alone, and find more acceptance of ourselves and each other.

Decorated lunch bags for my two kids

For the past year and change, I've been sending my two sons two school with custom lunch bags that I make for them every day that they're at my house (i.e., half of the time). I've painted, drawn, collaged, cut, and stenciled. Sometimes I make an image based on a historical event that happened on that date; sometimes the boys request a particular illustration; and sometimes I just go with my muse. I guess there are a handful of parents doing this in various ways, so it's not the most revolutionary thing ever, but I'm pretty pleased with how a lot of the bags have come out, so I thought I'd share.

FIVE THESES FOR A THESIS

I'm a thesis year graduate student in graphic design at The Rhode Island School of Design. From my perspective, it is important for me to establish a personal critical methodology that generates the thesis context itself. I am beginning to do so with my 5 Theses for a Thesis project. In an effort to thematize distribution channels (which is part of my thesis) and gather feedback, I have posted these five theses in a variety of platforms. [more inside]

PER SPECULUM IN ÆNIGMATE: Looking Through a Glass Darkly at the Age of Surveillance

My new Tumblr art project is a response to recent revelations about massive government and corporate surveillance. I'm posting a series of images, each containing an anaglyph 3D picture of an anonymous model, and a QR-encoded, PGP-encrypted email message that I can't read. A group of other people are writing the messages to each other, and my site is the delivery mechanism. With red/cyan 3D glasses, you can see "through" the noise of each image and glimpse some of the depths beyond. But only the intended message recipient can decrypt the embedded text. [more inside]

Deeply psychedelic ANSI scroller is longest ever

Blocktronics' ACiD Trip won the Freestyle ANSI/ASCII competition at last week's Demosplash 2013 event at Carengie Mellon University. Created by 22 artists, it's apparently the longest ANSI scroller ever at 3,266 lines long. Scroll it yourself right here. For those not hip to the lingo, ANSI is the American National Standards Institute but in this case refers to the 256 character set used in early computer operating systems. It's basically an extension of the usual 128 numbers, letters, and symbols of ASCII. More shapes, the ability to create colors, etc.

Artists & scientists in the wilderness

I'm one of 18 artists participating in the Aldo & Leonardo project. I'm currently in residence at Canyons of the Ancients National Monument - the desert biome portion of the Aldo & Leonardo Project. The project puts artists and scientists together in wilderness settings. All of the artists and some of the scientists are blogging about our experiences and what we're learning. Most of the blogs at this point are wilderness focused - our major artwork will come when we return to our studios and that will be on the blog as well. [more inside]

Japanese Woodblock Print Database

A database and visual search engine of over 200,000 Japanese woodblock prints. Starting in the early 1700s and exploding in popularity throughout the 1800s, Japanese woodblock prints depicted the fantastic world of Kabuki actors, courtesans, warriors, and nature. The style of the prints feels particularly modern and vibrant, even today a couple hundred years later. This project aggregates prints from a number of museums, dealers, and auction houses into a single searchable resource. [more inside]

Newly developed art media (clay, textural mediums) demo videos!

I am an artist collaborating with a chemistry professor to create new polymer media for artists. I just finished two demo videos that highlight the unique properties and versatility of the media we've developed. The first is also linked in the title and covers the clay and the second covers the textural mediums.

The Horror of Can't Stop Rock Lobster

This is totally the coolest thing I've ever done. It's somewhere between really agonizingly long music video tryptic and some weird new form of performative documentation and b52s fan enactment... or maybe none of the above. All segments were filmed at Maros Gallery, beginning in april, 2012 in Chris Martin's installation and ending in July, 2012. They let us paint those dayglo walls white (WTF: 8 coats!) and gave us an exhibition (later). Finally we got our two and a half weeks worth and made something insane: an open film set with 147 works of art. There was bullit, and it was bloody, and i am still bruised. No works of art were harmed (permanently) in the making of this video. [more inside]

The Sensitive Screen

An interactive installation using motors and the amazing, touch-reactive Mimosa Pudica plant, The Sensitive Screen is a hilariously slow-moving, living screen. When motors brush certain plants, the leaves collapse inwards -- these function as "off pixels" against the "on pixels" of the open plants. Since it takes about ten minutes for the plants to reopen, The Sensitive Screen moves at the blazingly fast speed of 6 frames per hour. A little more on the project can be found here.

Adorable

In 2009, after I turned 56, I fathered my first child. Since all her extended family members live in other countries, I started a daily photo blog, to record her growth.
I love my baby with all my heart. When she was about a year old, we took her to a street fair and a cartoonist drew a quick caricature of her face. That gave me the idea to start collecting artworks based on her pretty self. I guess I went a bit overboard, because yesterday she celebrated her third birthday, and the collection grew to 500 original art works from all over the world. [more inside]

Ecological artwork

I make artwork about the natural world; my most recent involves watercolor drawings of anole lizards and interactive live plant pedestals. I also have series of roadkill and dodo oil pastel drawings. As a bonus, I uploaded videos of students poking at the plants in the interactive pieces and saying things like, "I think we should light them on fire." And then doing so.
