Last week, a group of California College of the Arts MFA students travelled to the University of Nevada, Las Vegas for a whirlwind residency and show.
We thoroughly immersed ourselves in Las Vegas and produced an exhibition of entirely new, experimental works at UNLV’s Grant Hall Gallery.
In the spirit of the graduate class that produced the seminal “Learning from Las Vegas”
(MIT Press, 1977), we had both a productive and super-fun time.
My video collaboration "Measuring Visual Disturbances" with Elizabeth Moran will be screened at SOMArts on Friday October 10, 2014 as part of the "Visions at Twilight" exhibition. For this piece, Elizabeth and I conducted a paranormal investigation of the old Bay Bridge.
On Tuesday, November 12, 2013, on the 77th anniversary of its opening, crews began dismantling the eastern span of the Bay Bridge between San Francisco and Oakland, California.
In this video piece, we invite viewers to sit and pay homage to a Bay Area cultural icon. As you reflect on your own memories of the bridge, watch the laser grid on the left and take note of any small changes, like a flicker, which paranormal investigators believe is evidence of a lingering presence.
