Videodrome 2015 (Boat Map)

This is the video collage I used to projection map Dean Baldwin's capsized sailboat at the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art for the 10th and final Videodrome, Aug 21, 2015. The names of both the event and performing artists appeared in the lens. As always, it was honour to work among this amazing roster of some of my favourite people.

Here's a shot from the night during Ouananiche's performance, more pics coming soon:

Waking up in the dark

I finally woke up, it was already dark. I wondered where you were but soon realized that it was a only dream I had where you were, in fact, there.

The Broken Dolls were all assembled in the window of the Bananabelt Café, they just sat there silently and stared at me with blank expressions...

I take a quick look in the mirror, eye look great. I then proceed to go outside...

As I cross the threshold, I see Deewttam standing there propped up against a brick wall, smoke slowly bellowing out of this nostrils and mouth. Not speaking, he placed a cooked scorpion in the palm of my hand, motioning me to eat. So I did and it tasted delicious, much like nachos. I am careful not to eat the stinger....

I lean up against a piece of wood where I see a huge slug, it is then that I realize I am starting to hallucinate. I take a closer look at the slug...

I decide to walk down the street where metal frames arrange themselves in a row as I walk by...

I see Brookelyn smoking a cigarette, she also stares at me blankly and Im tripping quite intensely at this point.

To be continued...

June 30th, 2015 at the Gladstone Hotel, I projection mapped the stage to look like a dilapidated part of Detroit with an animated sky, pulsating organs in the windows and graffiti that would spell the performer's name while they were playing.

In the Black Zone (Deep Dream)

A funny thing happens when fall asleep in Bananada, you dream in what's known as the Black Zone. Its a place that apparently does exist but is physically inaccessible to most beings except via a dreaming mind or out of body projection. 

What is the worst thing someone has said to you?
