Curated and Coordinated by SOUP experimental artist Lucia Riffel, portal 4 was a pop-up exhibit of interactive artwork and musical performances throughout the evening. This particular event, which took place in Tallahassee on May 18, 2018, placed an emphasis on transforming a non-traditional venue into an ephemeral creative space. Artists were given a designated room or space within the property where they transformed the space, taking the viewer to new realms of thought and adventure.
The setting was unconventional by design; I was given the lovely front facade as my canvas. The video loop was shown on a projector for the full duration of the night, while interior spaces housed installations, performances, and realtime audio-visual collaborations.

Located in a West Philadelphia warehouse gallery, I was invited to create the visuals for their intimate grand opening show. Some of the video textures used at the show were created with realtime generative techniques while others were animated and rendered beforehand. We were graced with a stellar musical lineup for the evening, including Cheflee and salami rose joe louis from the Bay Area.
Light City:On Demand
On Demand, an exhibit featured in the 2018 Light City Festival in Baltimore, was a curated program of looped video and time-based media content, exploring the range and diversity of experimental forms of cinema made locally and abroad. The lineup, which included about two hours of footage, included short films, animations, poetronica, music videos, and other forms of digital media.

My submission was a series of collage animations meant to illicit the rapid, fleeting nature of creative visualization.
