2013     Art in Nature Festival 2012

 

This photo links to an album of videos I made for the 2012 Art in Nature Festival, an event held annually in Oakland's Redwood Park. I made montages from a variety of footage and a variety of cameras . . ."Soundgarden" and "Brass Menazeri" are two of my favorites.

2012     Kinetic Arts 2011

 

Another album of video montages, this time to document a 2011 April Fools' Day show at Kinetic Arts. The "juggling and contortion" video gets the most plays, probably because of the strong performances.

2011     Vanishing Point

 

This is a full-length document of the final performance of Vanishing Point by The Carpetbag Brigade. I'm proud of the editing in this video.

2010     Almond Harvest 2009, Ripon, California

 

A video of the penultimate almond harvest on my father's farm. Made in a blind, voracious way to make a pattern out of what was happening.

2009     DEAD POETS WALK

 

A performance on the streets of South Berkeley, in collaboration with Naomi West  . . . and the people we encountered, who become large figures in a world of fantasy.

2009     DEAD POETS LIVE

 

Music and readings at a launch party for Dead Poets Walk, featuring The Cliff Notes.

2008     Standing for Tibet

 

Afraid of being shot, the messenger hides, and nostalgia for empires that might have been takes over the plaza. The Red Star curls up with the Stars and Stripes while the Black Bloc watches from the trees. A Marin County monk has no argument for a Beijing business major.

2008     Walking for Burma

 

My love of Eisenstein influences my view of this action on a bridge. The result has been enviously called "meaningless" by one of the Zen devotees who appear in it.
