nude Toys...

"In a world where the value of life decreases daily, where boundaries between real and artificial are increasingly blurred, bye the toy that will truly confuse kids and rob them of any remaking sense of the natural. Epidermits are fully functioning organisms, resulting from advanced tissue engineering and the lasted fuel cell and electronics technology. They don't feel pain - or think - but follow a complex set of algorithms. They require minimal maintenance, can be stored in state aof forced hibernation in a standard refrigerators, and are customizable with different body, skin and hair selections and through tanning, tattooing and piercing." -Epidermis Interactive Pet by Stuart Karten Design

Also, I finally got my poetry book together. This has been way to long in the making. Feel free to check it out. The following is the description of the book and what is pretty much how I feel about a lot of "things."

Ultimately that is what resides on the page. From pixels to ink to nerve endings, the following work is work. It is process. Snap shots of what was. The poems themselves are collages of images and words. What is the meaning? Well, what does it mean to you? When you read blue do you feel red or smell broccoli? With juxtapositions of images, you might find the new meaning of a word or go somewhere you never had before. The trick is making the vernacular spectacular. All these poems are subject to time and evolution. The revisions may find themselves inverted in two or three months. But I cannot see the future. Can you? Or can you see yourself in these? Or is it me?

The period for eligible entries is May 1, 2007, to April 30, 2008. Categories will be basically the same as last year. Entry submission deadline will either be June 23 or 30. Full details soon.

I guess I was meant for media and communication from the beginning?

Turn To Tapeside B?

So once again this blog will change its main forging forces. As you can see below, the movie is done. I am working on packaging it for those who want a copy. I will come with a small zine holding the contents of the this very here blog! Whoo hoo.

A new semester. A new year of my life (on both counts for those who know what I'm counting about.) What to record now? My studio project is taking a thesis turn. And I feel like this blog will still show some of the happenings and mishaps that I make happen. But, the project(s) tittle will be InhabOrg, just to be coy. It's the inhabitable organism blog I have been working one with Shields and Jenna.

But this is good space to document my other endeavors, aka explorations with max/msp/jitter. Also, I've befriended an amazing brilliant artist/filmaker/actor/everything while on my adventure to NYC. Please check his work out. Fritz Donnelly. He will have his piece Videopedia playing at the New Museum, nyc. I had the opportunity to do the camera work for a recent short. "Dress me up and tell me what to do" Of course, I had him in a large cardboard box. This video is "Pull" from Videopedia. I will post the other one when I can get it from him.. or the link. etc.
