2020 Demo Reel

Overhead Colors

Overhead Colors is a series started in early 2018. The series is composed of liquid light art, a technique found in avant-garde theater performances from the 60's and 70's. The usage of physical materials merged with the digitization allows for a unique combination when the final results are destructed with glitch art techniques like data-moshing, misalignment, compression, and more.

The series has used a plethora of materials like nail polish remover, paint, gouache, citric acid, iron powder, glitter, baby oil, canola oil, various India inks, baking soda, food coloring, bleach, cola, vinegar, milk, and more. A balance of color theory, cinematography, and chemistry are all needed in the moment of making the pieces.

Overhead Pop-Up

The finale of the six-part series premiered as a pop-up projection around Savannah as a final attribute to this capstone project. The piece's run-time is forty minutes and was screened across five nights. With the piece being so long the intention was for people to be able to show up on different nights at different locations to see the screening in a different format and point in time. Documentation of each screening showcases the different experiences and interactions people had with each screening.

Overhead Pop-Up will be screened and in the running for a finalist position at Digital Graffiti 2020, a projection festival in Alys Beach, Florida.

Test Runs

Testing testing one two three...

It takes a few tests to narrow down a concept and skill set. You have to start somewhere and these are a few tests that were a lot of fun making and I feel they are worth a share.
