Some upcoming events, from New York to Austria to Washington to the Moon.
If in New York:

We Could Be
Gallery hours: Thursday-Saturday 12-6

The project features multiple videos telling the abstracted story of monster sent to earth to destroy the human race but instead, finds itself on a spiritual quest. It takes inspiration from sci-fi B-movies, the utopian ideals of rave culture and self-help literature.
The videos feature artist Jody Wood and music by Todd Carter, Chris Colthart, Kelly Marie Martin, and myself. The video works are accompanied by drawings, a selection of online animated GIFS, and a limited edition zinewith illustrations, an interview between Esther Ruiz and myself, and writings by Blair Murphy, Ish Klein and Greg Purcell.
The solarplate print was made with artist and master printer Lisa Mackie.
If in Washington:
A single-channel version of We Could Be Transcendent Apes will be screening at:
SPACENESS is an annual event that brings artists and thinkers together on the Long Beach Penninsula on the Washington Coast to explore our shared experiences of time and space and the gaps in our understanding of the universe. This 3-day event features visual art as well as music, performance, experiments, and lectures.
I’m excited to be part of the weekend long event, especially by my friend Bob Dornberger’s “Surface to Air” sandwich launching cannon.
My video Memo to William Reed re: Hyperborea, with sound by Chris Colthart will be screened at:
Sunday, February 21
Artists were asked for proposals of what art they would make on the moon. I proposed to make glam-rock inspired space suits for an astronaut and myself to wear while dancing on the lunar surface. They accepted. I am making a stop-motion video to demonstrate what this would look like. One of the crazier art events I have been involved with, lots of great projects about Moon art.
