anonymooseThe film I made with Catherine Falkner during a residency at Black Bag Media Collective in St John's, Newfoundland is now in distribution with VIVO media arts, and the first screening from this relationship is happening at CineEco environmental film festival in Portugal in October (or as they say in Portugal, "outubro"!

The film, a surrealist propaganda movie against the spraying of Tordon 101 on Newfoundland's highways, will show this week in Seia, Portugal in competition with other shorts.

Thanks to Liz Solo for making that residency happen...

I love this article and agree completely.

Why Google Glass Is So Bad and Hated and Will Never Work.

"People pay thousands of dollars to have lasers shot at their eyes so they don't have to wear glasses. People put little pieces of plastic right on their eyes so they don't have to wear glasses. People hate glasses.

You can feel them on your face. You can see them on your face. They restrict your peripheral vision. You have to keep track of them. If you take them off you have to carry them with you. Your one pair has to compliment all your clothes. Wearing glasses makes it harder to wear sunglasses and be cool. Lots of people don't like how they look in glasses. Though imo some are in actuality very fetching. Disclaimer I don't wear glasses."

logoVIVO has not disappeared, it's just gone underground while the landlord laughs and the City of Vancouver steps in to the rescue.

Jeff Younger's Devil Loops

I'm doing my first live improvised visual performance with Jeff Younger and some amazing dancers and performers tomorrow night at the Orpheum Annex!

TICKETS HERE

I'll be playing with video from Ukraine, with live animation, and VJ-type live cams.  I feel like someone has taken a DJ and said "here's a guitar!" which is pretty fun but also terrifying.  Come see me triumph or crash!  It will be a great event!

The event is produced by the Railtown Cultural Eclective...

 Music Visualizations, Synchoric Orchestra dancing Schubert's Unfinished Symphony (1919) (via New York Public Library for the Performing Arts / Jerome Robbins Dance Division)From Hyperallergic.com

The New York Public Library recently digitized thousands of hours of its videos in the Jerome Robbins Dance Division Moving Image Archive, from grainy historic footage to contemporary productions along with preservations of culture. One of these — Annabella — dates from 1897 and shows a dancer swirled in fabric that changes shades.

space-baby-poster-letterCome to the spectacular performance of SPACE, BABY.

April 17, 18, 19 - 8 pm
The Toast Collective
648 Kingsway
Tickets $10/15 at the door or at Brown Paper Tickets

Space, Baby is a multimedia performance inspired by the palate of 1960s sci-fi film which tells the surreal story of a lone woman searching her galactic memories in an effort to escape the realities of an ever-approaching future. The woman is a rogue astronaut witnessing her own past. She plays multiple versions of herself as seen through the lens of her changing memories. Using a forcefield of sound and imagery, the camp-aesthetic of films such as Barbarella, and the genre-bending of American Astronaut, Space, Baby is a multimedia performance about regret and forgetting.
