I recently created two new video works for exhibitions in Detroit. The first, Extraction, was included in "Video Center," a September exhibition at the N'Namdi Gallery for Contemporary Art during the biennial Dlectricity festival.
On the second night of the exhibition, the gallery space was further activated with a collaborative, interdisciplinary performance, Extraction/Distraction, featuring a live mix of Extraction and other video, created in real time in response to sounds from Thomas Bell and movement from Ryan Myers-Johnson.
The second recent video work is an untitled piece exploring the relationship of sound and movement, and will be shown Saturday, October 18 during Infrared Ultrasound, a one night video art and performance event curated by Natasha Beste and Matthew Daher.
Also in September, I collaborated with Sherry Aliberti's The Cocoon Project to project video onto morphing architectural structures during evening performances at Detroit Design Festival and the Unofficial Dlectricity After Party. Separately, I photographed Cocoons as they made their way throughout Detroit.

If you are in Detroit this week, you can catch a live performance of real-time visual projections during the Creative [ ] Incubator, Thursday, October 16.
