Opening Night: MFA Thesis Show 2009

My MFA show at UCLA’s department of Design | Media Arts is now open. I should have announced this before the opening, which was Thursday the 14th but was too wrapped up in finishing the work. It will be open normal gallery hours (weekdays from 10-5) until May 28. If you are in Los Angeles I encourage you to come and see my and my classmates work.

Sundance Film Festival

I’m proud to announce that Moon Theater, my collaborative project with Nova Jiang and Andres Colubri will be exhibited at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival! We will be showing the piece in the New Frontier gallery; A fairly new addition to the festival that invites media artists and interactive designers that work at the intersection of moving image, narrative, performance and interactivity.

Moon Theater will be exhibited at the last installment of Night Lights, a public art festival in Scottsdale, Arizona. Sponsored by the Scottsdale Cultural Council.

The show will take place along the Scottsdale waterfront, from 7-11pm on 18, December 2008.

Workshop in Singapore

I’ve just returned from Singapore where I and a classmate, Nova Jiang, have participated in an international student workshop at Lasalle College of Arts. While in Singapore, we collaborated on a quick and low-tech project that was inspired by Situationist ideas of wandering the city. It was a really great way to engage an unfamiliar city, and good research for my thesis. Documentation is now¬†here.
