Send Noods

noods.jpg

Send Noods was part installation, part performance that was a play on words regarding the phrase “send nudes”. I submerged myself in a bathtub full of cooked spaghetti noodles. A camera on a tripod was pointed at me where viewers were able to take a photos of me via a remote shutter. In order to make this performance something less momentary, participants were able to write down their name and address and I sent them postcards of the photo seen above.

Chrysalis

Chrysalis is an exploration of expanded cinema that places the viewer in an immersive space to inspire a hypnagogic experience. The visuals digitally explore and expand upon the analog slit-scan technique used in traditional expanded cinema. The viewer is meant to lie on the floor to view the video projected into a dome suspended from the ceiling. Sheer curtains that partition off the viewing area from the exhibition space limit external stimuli. The audio that accompanies Chrysalis is a recording of Nicholas Miller, a jazz guitar student at the University of Denver. In order to further the immersive nature of the work, the audio track is played through headphones.
