Thanks to everyone who came throughout the week, hung out with us, drank, danced, partied, helped set up & break down, promoted, photographed, participated and supported Soul Seasons!!! You guys are awesome!!! I had so much fun and truly appreciate everything.
The animation itself will not be available online for awhile, as I’d like to only make it available for public installations at the moment, but stay tuned! I will be posting a behind the scenes video montage to show what went in to the making of Soul Seasons over the last four months.
Thanks to everyone for your continued words of support, encouragement & love.
Hey folks! I am very excited to announce that I have been selected to create a public video projection piece as part of Bridgeport City Canvases to be revealed on Thursday, August 2nd.
The City Canvases initiative is aimed to enhance urban areas in highly visable exterior locations around Bridgeport with projection based public art by local artists. Connecticut received $1 million in grant funding and will be creating various projects in 7 cities across the state. Twelve artists have been chosen to participate in this project and will exhibit their videos in different locations around the city. Each artist’s work will be revealed each week beginning in July. Visit this page for a full lineup of the exhibiting artists.
I serendipitously found out about the project while I was exhibiting work at the 305K gallery art bazaar earlier this spring. I was told that if I wanted to participate that I had two days to submit my concept proposal for a video surrounding their overarching theme of “Change”.
Sometimes I think that my best ideas are born out of pressure, because I don’t have time to over think them.
Strangely, this date aligned to the two days I had taken off work, to be by my dad’s side as he was going through various rounds of cancer surgery. I wrote my proposal while I was sitting in a hospital, hoping to hear that my dad’s cancer had been removed. (Which I’m thankful to say that it has.) Needless to say, my ideas stemmed from a very raw and emotional place. I chose to work with an idea that came from my gut in dealing with the change that was going on around me at that moment. And I plan on dedicating this piece of work to him.
I’m very excited about this event and am looking forward to bringing it to life and sharing it with the city and all of you. I’ve chosen to create a uniquely styled stop-motion animation that I will be building over the next two months.
Look out for more details coming soon because I plan on incorporating YOU into my project!
Please shoot me an email or leave a comment with your email address below if you have interest in being a part of my video and being projected onto a building in Bridgeport during my exhibition. I will be holding a few shoot days in the near future and will only need 5 minutes of your time to immortalize you in my piece. Shooting will take place at the Danger studio in the Loft Artist building in Stamford which is always fun (and usually involves wine).
Thanks in advance guys!!

If any of you are in the CT area on this snowy friday evening, I will be projecting some videos over at the City Lights Gallery in Bridgeport from 6-11pm tonight. Thanks to Liz of Paradox Ink for inviting me!
I picked out 10 of my favorite experimental pieces that I worked on in 2009 and this will be the first time they are landing on gallery walls. I’m sure at some point in the evening I’ll end up free-form VJing a bit too.
City Lights gallery is debuting their first Nu Media show, involving a mixed collection of video art, short films, and animation. Hope to see you!
City Lights Gallery is located at 37 Markle Court Bridgeport, CT 06604 : $5 Entry fee
