This clip is of a performance from graduate school at NYU in 2001, where I experiment with a custom-made electronic noise instrument I designed & built that can be played without touching it.
This one is a live demonstration of another interactive mixed media instrument I worked on while in graduate school. The project was a joint venture with Jimmy Chung while we were at ITP in 2002.
This performance / installation was during High Desert Test Sites IV in 2006, part of a sprawling series of art exhibitions curated by Andrea Zittel that takes place throughout the Mojave Desert.
