Check out the full line-up here. About REAL UNREAL: STATUS: filters alter perception… Read More →

Cybernetic Revolt | Film Night at Rock Bar

When computers kill us off, what will it look like? I’ve been wracking my brain to compile a list of the most aesthetically interesting and bizarre portrayals of humans being overcome by our deadliest creation yet: digital technology. While all these films are of course fictional, the themes hit very close to home. We’re approaching an age where digital technologies have much more power than we tend to acknowledge – at this… Read More →

Big news! I’m becoming a free(lance) agent.

In a month, I’ll be leaving my position at SFMOMA in order to pursue creative projects and freelance work at the intersection of art + technology. This is a big change, but the time has come for me to shift gears, and I couldn’t be more excited about what’s next. During my time at the museum, I have worked on so many fulfilling projects. I began as an intern in what… Read More →

#HiveSalon on July 2: How can we harness the creative advantage of the Internet?

Q: The internet allows us to tap into a collective intelligence, but now that we’re all plugged in, there is nothing psychedelic about it. We have all the information we need, but are we any wiser for it? What’s missing? A: The missing piece is between your ears… You seek salvation in the external world, but that world is yours to make.

PSYCHEDELIC FILM NIGHT at Rock Bar

Hey San Francisco-dwelling friends! I’m putting together a film night at Rock Bar this Wednesday (tomorrow) – come join me for a drink and some silent film action starting at 8pm! I’ve selected four visually-stunning, feature-length experimental art films from the ’60s and ’70s, each of which stars (or features) musicians and their music. Although the films will be played silently, I’ve compiled a playlist on Rdio (unfortunately, none of… Read More →

And now, for the 2012 archives…

This year I’ve had the pleasure of being ridiculously busy. Lots of productive things have happened in the meantime, and I wanted to use this space as a repository for bits of text/media that are currently scattered across the Internet that I would like to keep around. If I had a more dynamic tagging structure for this blog, I would tag this post RELENTLESSLY SELF-CENTERED, so be warned. I was… Read More →
