I met with Julie Perini and Chris Hudson to discuss re-enacting the t.h.a.n.k.s. project by Markuz Wernli Saitô and Mike Reandeau. We found that our concerns and schedules prevented us from completing the project in time for my university requirement. However, much was gained from our discussions. Thank you Markuz for sharing your thoughts with Julie and I. Read more!

I re-enacted Mads Lynnerup's Bus piece, in which the artist gets on and off a bus each time running to catch it as it goes from stop to stop. Thank you Arman Bohn for coming along to document. Also thank you to the Mads for the advice to not wear converse. Read more!
I re-enacted Joshua Greene's Iced Tea piece, which involved inviting people to share Iced Tea with the artist. It was interesting. Thank you to Amir and the people at Broadway Coffee and to the artist Joshua Greene for his thoughts on his work. Read more!

We performed for Vision + Hearing, a audio/video themed collaboration that for this event featured work dealing with Portland landmarks. We chose the Joan D'arc statue in South East. As I made a video of the statue, I walked around and slowly zoomed in until the rhythm of my walking made the stature appear to be galloping through a spiritual forest. I performed with DYS by using a flashlight to project a live "lens burst" onto the projected image, giving Joan a halo as she rode. Thank you Marc Fischer (of Portland) for your facilitating this event and our collaboration. Read more!
Utilizing a print on demand website and the find & replace feature in Adobe Indesign, I was able to fulfill my longtime dream of rewriting books by placing my friends names in the place of famous protagonists. In this, the first in a series, Winston Smith of 1984 has been replaced by Eric Steen (a classmate). The title has been changed to 1985. Others in the series will include Nice Expectations and Fiona in Wonderland Read more!
