56 Chevy on Cooper St. In Santa Cruz on First Friday.

Or, a butterfly emerging from a black hole that swallowed the Roman empire.


This is not a rose.

Please enjoy my mind palace.


Jason I love these colors!!




Re-posting my final project from my MA at Goldsmiths which just finished last week over here. It’s a multimedia exploration of the suburb I live in, Deptford, and its historical connection to the River Thames.

The video was taken after the piece had only been allowed to run for a couple of hours, so I’ve attached shots from later in the show, after about four days of running, to show the overall effect of the water on the steel. The piece on the left was a test piece that I wanted to show as the beginnings of a potential series, and I think (still don’t really know) it saw less rust because I didn’t clean its protective film or sand the steel down as thoroughly as I did on the piece on the right.

Happy to answer and questions. There’s a link to the github repo with the code in the vimeo description.

something about it makes me think:

Souls Grown Deep: The tree gave the dove a leaf

Souls Grown Deep: Once that river starts to flow

My “Manure & Poetry Nr.2” performance last night went according to plan. I got a black eye, pumped some glorious noise through an amazing, powerhouse sound system built by @derekwinstonmaxwell , and a new edition (Nr.8) of We Are Working All The Time! posters was beautifully printed by @nancyjuliahicks and @candyjdavis (three print versions of Ed.8 have been realized, including a totally amazing looking set of prints made on asphalt paper!!! More on that later.)


Your black eye is… surprisingly beautiful?
Of course I feel terrible for thinking that.


I agree with @jasonw22.
Excellent black eye.
I saw it and it made me wonder to myself if I was going to go my whole life without having had a black eye. Then I thought that maybe I should ask @Rodrigo to clock me in the face because I can trust him to do minimal damage while still achieving the desired affect (for aesthetic reasons, like you’ve done here.) , whereas other people might not care as much to control themselves.

Anyway, if one day you see me in a video with a black eye know that you inspired it.


Ha ha! You guys are funny!
Angela, please don’t go out of your way for the ‘look’! Not worth it.
Though I have to say, looking at the image, I also find a lot going on esthetically… something about the lines and colors.
It was a good evening regardless.

Wow, just wow. I love both of those, Jason.

I’ve somehow neglected this thread for a while, so a little ‘better late than never’ appreciation.

(and it is now my laptop desktop background. I’ve been using an old Starcraft screenshot for years and I just love the mind palace!)
