I am excited to announce that I was commissioned by Images Festival to make the official trailer for this year's festival. This was a great honour, and since it is Images' 30th anniversary, I decided to pay homage to the festival's staff, artists and attendees by creating a collage out of the nearly 15,000 images in their archives. If you've ever been to Images before you will see some familiar faces, and maybe even yourself! Check out the trailer below, or on the big screen at this year's edition, which runs from April 21-28th in Toronto. The music is by Karl Fousek, "Second" from Pattern Recognition (2015).
Other things of note: I recently published a short text, "Notes on the Fragile Image," in Otherzine #32, "Cinemas of Resistance". My work was featured in two music videos, "Runaway" by Alexandre Bazin, and "Deepest Blue" by Emanuele de Raymondi on Zerokilled Music. And video documentation of my live sets at Audiopollination #51 have been posted online here, here, here and here.
Upcoming presentations of my work:
Field (2016) will be shown at Athens International Film and Video Festival, Ohio, on April 4th.
A very new work, Concrescence (2017), will be shown at NOFEST 2017: Non è pranzo di gala (Is not a dinner party), at UNZA! in Milan, Italy, on April 8th. An extended remix of this new work will also be presented alongside a live poetry reading by Lizzsea Shipman at An Evening of Confluence in Vancouver, on March 25th.
I will be doing live video performances at Spectrum featuring Michael Red in Toronto, on March 24th, and at Electric Circuits Festival in Kingston ON, on April 8th (with an artist workshop in the afternoon).
