Here is a link to my visual proposal. I’m not sure it comes across in the proposal… so I want to do some visual work in reinterpreting a collaboration between two genres of music.

Harry Potter References aside (I only use them here to help get the point across, they likely won’t be part of the final project), my original text game idea has evolved quite a bit.  The basic idea is to write an App that will talk to you as if he inhabits your phone and that he will try to get you to do silly things with your phone, a la Auster and Calle in double game.  looking at the project now this feels pretty ambitious, so I may have to tone it down in some way but I hope to capture the same personality and character that I felt here

Experiment 4: Live in the moment


Have you ever stood and looked straight up at the swirling snow falling upon you from a purely white sky? I have. This is that moment and the moment after.

[Based on a true story]

Featuring my dog, April.

Experiment 4: My Visual Story

Because I geek out over photography, I thought the best way to represent myself visually (& without any words) is through a photo mosaic composed of a selection of the pictures I have taken over the years. Of course, I feel the need to explain through words, so here we go.

The basic explanation: The “large” photo is a photo of a tissue covering a face so as to visually make the photo a little more mysterious and less a depiction of reality. Within this photo mosaic, the tissue in the “large” photo is technically represented through many small photos that I have taken for friends, family, events, art projects, journalism, personal pleasure, etc.

The really real explanation: The small photos tell the literal story of my life experiences, where I have been, what I have done, who I’m friends with, how I’ve grown up. The larger picture is a symbolic story of my anxieties.  Is the person behind the veil really me? Do those small pictures of experiences really add up to explain my life? Is the process of self-discovery really this mysterious?
