Excited to have new work as part of GRID at Stanford University, May 31st-June 8th, 8-10pm. I was paired with composer Andrew Watts, whose composition Ex Silencio is used in the piece. GRID is comprised of an outdoor monument, a 20-foot tall, 30-foot wide lattice of laser beams amongst the trees on Stanford’s campus. Bring your blankets! >> frankensteingrid.com
*Finally almost there!* Files for the short documentary video on the monumental 6-story sound installation Le Corps Sonore (Sound Body) by Bob Bielecki, Eliane Radigue, and Laetitia Sonami are now in the hands of sound genius Phil Perkins. The piece was installed at the Rubin Museum of Art in NYC from June 2017 to January 2018 in a captivating show curated by Risha Lee.
A few months ago I came across old Super 8 home movies of my family. The first stage of the project is a series of paintings based on stills from these home movies that examine the fragility of enculturation. The second part consists of a series of videos using this found footage to explore challenges that are commonplace to the immigrant experience. The last component is a multimedia piece using photographs, diagrams, video, and sound to communicate different aspects of my parents’ journey, and the journey of those like them to the United States. *More on this piece as the project progresses.
Additionally, I've been working on a book of personal essays that I started ten years ago so that I can ship it off to an editor. There's never enough time to get anything done, said everyone, everywhere.
