Make art. Document it. Send it to The White House.
This project aims to create a unique collection of political art indicative of this moment, forever to be held within the National Archives’ Presidential Libraries, and a collection of the responses from the White House.
Research Remix (a project organized by the Digital Media Center at Johns Hopkins University) is “a series of events designed to bring together artists and designers with scientific researchers in order to promote interdisciplinary collaboration and develop compelling new projects.”
This project was completed in collaboration with Kiara Eldred at Johnston and Hattar Labs, Johns Hopkins University (Robert J. Johnston Jr., P.I.) and based upon data derived from her research into “Stochastic Human Opsin Choice.”
Originally titled “A Mile in Another’s Shoes”, this project has been rebranded as “Sole Connections” and was relaunched on 6/1/2014
“You won’t know a man until you’ve walked a mile in his shoes.” We spend so much of our time not paying attention to each other. When we take the time to share with each other and appreciate the subtleties, we become closer as a community, as a world.
“Construction: 1922 / 2011”
created with images from the Hughes Collection, University of Maryland, Baltimore County.
In conjunction with the 2014 SPE National Conference theme “Collaborative Exchanges: Photography in Dialogue”, The Special Collections Department of the Albin O. Kuhn Library & Gallery and the Department of Visual Arts, at UMBC offered the images of the Hughes Company Glass Negatives Collection for reinterpretation and reinvention.
“Mirror Minus” is an interactive installation that continues within my experimental process of Reductive Video. The body of work entitled “Reductive Video” borrows the choice to depict changes in movement (either as individual frames or wholly contained in a single image) and applies it to the technical rendering of images. Using custom software written in Max/MSP/Jitter, video is broken down to reveal only the pixels that change from frame to frame, no longer implying form, but instead the shape of what has changed from the previous frame.
