Mortalpalooza

If Frank Sinatra was headlining the next Coachella, what would the visuals on stage be like? If Ella Fitzgerald sold out Madison Square Garden, what types of visuals would she present? If Billie Holiday was going on tour, what would…

Early Experiments: Abstract Video

Using Touchdesigner, I created a piece called “Eventually No. 1”. The title, along with many of my other projects made in this software, are inspired by the Australian-psychedelic-rock band, Tame Impala. I saw Tame Impala live in Brooklyn back in…

An Exploration of Time and Place – Final Conference Project

My final project for abstract video is four videos stitched together to create a four minute video showcasing my shadow walking through the day. Each video shows me walking in a different environment and different forms of abstraction through it…

Early Experiments: Abstract Video

My favorite part of learning Touchdesigner has been rendering objects. A big challenge has been learning how to make the objects move on a 3D plane and take on their own life. The image above is from my favorite early…

Drawing Machines: Hollyhocks Takes The Cake

This object began with my initial paper clip and paper plate constructed sphere from the beginning of the semester; I really liked the form, weight, and appearance of that sphere, and wanted to build this assignment off of that initial…

Modeling Morphogenesis; A Simulation of Coral Growth Potential 

This work is an unconventional representation of a scientific coral morphogenesis model. The coral is made of various tissue paper; I drew designs on some of the paper, used patterned paper, and solid colored paper as well. The paper is…

Drawing Machines: BOUND

This project was born out of a drive to repurpose books that were set aside in the load-out dock beneath the Sarah Lawrence Library. These books were all marred in some way, whether it be a few lines highlighted here…

Drawing Machines: Early Experiments Plate Toy

This piece is made of paper plates and a bunch of tape. I started using paper clips to hold my folds together, however, they soon proved too unstable for the kind of stability that I wanted to achieve. Each individual…

Early Experiments

This video shows my blinking eye overlayed with a digital shape that appears to be blinking. The eye and the pulsating sphere are meant to look like they are affecting each other to blink.In this experiment, I was initially following…

[Drawing Machines] – Paper Plate Spire

The Object is a thin, alabaster spire standing over five-and-a-half feet tall, wrought of paper plates and a single paperclip. It is slightly thicker at the bottom, and creeps haphazardly upward, precariously balanced. Our objective was to construct a sculpture…

Early Experiments

Endless Circles

DESCRIBE THE OBJECT This piece consists of three different moving parts: a black circle, a yellow circle, and a purple circle. The black and yellow circles move in the same pattern and speed but in opposite directions, starting in the…

My Face

DESCRIBE THE OBJECT This work was an experiment with code in an attempt to create multiple moving parts in one image that had some type of relationship to one another. The two yellow rings constantly move around in circles while…

Diary Forms: Honeytrap

I’ve had a vested interest in making art about rooms and how we can tell a lot about people based on what their rooms look like. My conference piece is called “Honeytrap,” and in creating this piece, I was trying…

Hungry Hungry Triangles

My conference project is an eco system in which triangles and squares collide with one another and eat each other. The inspiration for my work comes from those popular online .io games where players try to eat each other to…

Spinning Rose

DESCRIBE THE OBJECT This project is part of my optical illusion collection. One of the themes that really interested me this semester was creating (occasional 3D) optical illusions through hard code. This ‘Pink Rose’ is a bunch of organized rectangles…

Diary Forms: The Gala of Time

The Gala of Time. In which relics from the past and present are shown in a miniature exhibition. Looking at old photographs of these items made me realize that I wanted to add on an aura of nostalgia. I have…
