updates updates updates updates

It's Spring!

A lot of things have been happening and there is even more coming up!
Here's a little point form update:

Alvvays have been touring with the projections I made for their live show last December. They took the projections with them through Europe and have been screening them while they perform at various shows including one at the Bowery Ballroom back in April, as well as a Juno Awards party and the Indies awards show as part of Canadian Music Week.





























































I've been curating a series of video's for Xpace's External Space. So far I've curated Tobias William's The Emotional Problems of living, exhibition essay can be found here.

The most recent work in the series if Colin Rosati's Data Library. The work just opened and can be viewed here. It will be up until June 22nd installed in the Learning Zone on the OCAD U campus and hosted on xpace's homepage at xpace.info. The exhibition essay I wrote for that work can be found here.




























I'm in the process of wrapping up post production for a new music video I shot and directed for the Guelph band The Folk. The video will be released sometime in June before their show at NXNE - June 20th at the Silver Dollar.

























Last week I shot a music video for the track Britl Binary by Pale Eyes. This was a greatly collaborative endeavour with helps from old pals and new pals and i'm really looking forward to start post production. It should be released early summer of this year.



































I will be selling my first edition ever of prints. CMYK silkscreens printed by Tobias Williams and taken from a still of my Workout '13 video piece. They will be on sale at the Xpace Fundraiser opening June 5th and hosted by Tough Guy Mountain.

Prism Prize - Long List

The Doepfer video I made for Austra last summer was longlisted for the Prism Prize.
It didn't get shortlisted, but it was great to be nominated.



The Prism Prize Awards take place Sunday, March 29 at the TIFF Bell Lightbox. Tickets are currently on sale. I'll be there.

good bye 2014 // hello 2015

Towards the end of last year I had the opportunity to work on a number of great projects and work with a lot of great people. My schedule more of less exploded, and I got so caught up in doing that I became bad in posting, so until I have more content to provide for each of these things individually, this post is meant as an update of what I've recently done and what is on the horizon.

2014
October 
























- Peter Rahul and I created immersive video projections for Lido Pimienta (and friends)'s live show at the Music Gallery as part of the X AVANT Festival.


November 
































- I created a video piece titled queer garden that was exhibited for a three week run at the OCADU Student Gallery as part of A Secret Garden curated by Lido Pimienta.


December 

















- <3 <br> (heartbreak) was part of That Teenage Feeling screening at Videofag, curated by Zach Pearl and part of the WADE In series in partnership with Eastern Edge Gallery in St John's. 




The Emotional Problems of Living - Tobias Williams                                  




















- I curated a hour long program/series of video work for Drake TV that will be screening on the public TV monitors of the hotel for the next few months. The title of the Program is Synthetic Landscapes.

Artists included: Tobias Williams, Brianna Lowe, Sarah D'Angelo, Peter Rahul, Phillipe Blanchard, Niki Sehmbi, Adrienne Crossman, Lauren Pelc-McArthur

Synthetic Landscapes is a series of animated videos by emerging Toronto New Media artists. Ranging from stop motion claymation, glitch art, digital 3d renderings and analogue television effects, each work explores it’s own version of the artists unique created environments.



























- I created and projected original visuals for the entire set of Alvvays' performance at the Opera House on December 20th.
