News and Updates

  • 2015 winter/spring news

    I'll be presenting a program of my films in San Francisco on March 27. The program is hosted by SF Cinematheque, and will take place at Artists' Television Access (ATA).

    I'm finishing up Here There, the animation I've been working on with Bonobostudio in Zagreb. I'm very excited for this one to see the light of day!

    I'll be working with High Concept Laboratories in Chicago this spring to produce a new film, using lasers and mirrors. The piece will be used as part of a collaboration with sound artists Grykes in May.

    I'm one of the artists participating in the 2015 Ten x Ten project, which pairs visual artists with musicians to produce a record and edition of prints. This year's theme is improvisation, and I'll be working with musician Peter Maunu. We'll be responding to each other's work this spring, and the record and prints will be released in September.

    A few screenings coming up for my film Fort Morgan:
    FLEXfest, Gainesville, Florida, February 19-22, 2015
    Alchemy Film and Moving Image Festival, Scotland, April 16-19, 2015
    Chicago Underground Film Festival, May 13-17, 2015

    My film Peacock will screen at the Lucca Film Festival (Italy) March 15-22, 2015

  • Project at Bonobostudio in Zagreb, Croatia

    This summer I have been working on a new animation project at Bonobostudio in Zagreb, Croatia. The piece is called "Here There" and uses a combination of audio field recordings and abstract drawn animation. This funny little cloud fragment was the result of some experimentation this week. 

  • New York screenings, May 2014

    Two screenings in New York:

    Friday May 9 at Pioneer Works, I'll present a program I curated of classic experimental film work shown on 16mm. Titled "Under the Lid of the Id," this program is centered around Freudian double-speak and loaded puns. Featured in the progam are six films, including work by Jim Trainor, John Smith, Jim Henson and Kenneth Anger. 159 Pioneer St., Red Hook, Brooklyn

    Monday May 12 at Millennium Film Workshop, I'll screen the "Accumulations" program, collecting my experimental film and video work from 2005-2014. Included in the program is the New York premiere of Fort Morgan. At Fireproof Gallery, 119 Ingraham St., Brooklyn.
