Hi! To get you excited about the upcoming Jazz Tonic event, I wanted to share a few shots from the installation I put together for the Fabrik Magazine Art's District Walk last month. Both this installation and a portion of the upcoming projection project will feature work from my"Apartment Homes Fake Book" project.
Also, since fashion designer Melanie Chorak was cool enough to let me install in her more open loft, here's a couple shots of tests of her new line of lingerie!
Remember remember the First of December! Jazz Tonic!

Hi everyone! I just wanted to let you all know that I'm going to be debuting a new video projection piece as part of December 1st's Jazz Tonic event at Broadway Bar in downtown Los Angeles. The Jazz Tonic events, run by Mixmaster Massey, are a chimera night of live jazz fused with turntables fused with poetry. Always unpredictable, occasionally genius, they have invited me to produce a video work to accompany the night's melange. The piece I'll be showing is called "My Work Speaks for Itself" which is a pair projectors overlaying black and white films of my walks around the area near Broadway bar (8th and Broadway) with other photographs and video clips blended in. The details again!
Event: Jazz Tonic
Date: December 1st, 2010
Time: 9:00PM PST
Location: Broadway Bar

I got lucky the other week and was able to take Callie to the Sanrio 50th Anniversary VIP party. I thought I'd share a couple of photos with all of you! There were a ton of food trucks (I have to say that the prime rib and mac & cheese grilled cheese sandwich was pretty fascinating), much in the way of free booze, particularly if you learned to ask for two drinks, no ice, then poured them into one real-sized glass, and even an indoor ferris wheel, which looked to be celebrating an anniversary near that of Sanrio.

Hi! I just wanted to make another quick post to announce that Mechademia issue 5 is out, and featuring an article I co-wrote with Christopher Bolton (at Williams College) that is a primer of on the myriad practitioners, forms and uses of costuming & photography in fan communities and fine art. It's a great article with a good number of glossy full-color plates. The only caveat I have is that we somehow missed the fantastic German art photographer Oliver Sieber's extensive work with cosplay fans. Next time, Oliver, I promise!
