Mental Dynamics IRL (well kind of)

(...last photo by Stephanie Davidson from here...)

Just thought I would post these here as proof that these pieces existed In Real Life! This is the work and installation of my contribution to the Mental Dynamics exhibition that opened at Synchronicity gallery a couple of weeks ago. It is up until December 12th so if you can you should check it out! Many (many) thanks to Stephanie Davidson for curating me in.

Here and here (click through photostream) are installation shots of the whole show - nice work!!


PS. My dumb dumb portfolio website keeps crashing. Sorry to be so unprofessional. I keep cheaping out on upgrading it so it can handle more traffic but I swear to God if it does it again next month I will take care of things. As for now, it will refresh December 1st and then be back online...

PPS. Happy Thanksgiving to all the non-Canadians! Hope you had a nice one.

Louis Malle's Phantom India / L'Inde Phantome

Stumbled upon these beautiful clips the other day of the 1968 documentary L'Inde Phantome (Phantom India), by the French film director Louis Malle. Mesmerizing. I was especially taken by the personal tone of the film's narration. I think it really adds something to the footage - somehow making the director's own story part of the one he is telling of India at that moment in time...

Also see these clips of the same documentary:

caste system (part 1, part 2, part 3)
Toda tribe
temple cart (part 1, part 2)

They are all so great! I am going to have to rent this somewhere so I can watch the whole thing.


"But these dancers have gone beyond technique. These images clearly show dance as language, or better yet, dialogue."

Bestest Bud G gave me two packs of polaroid film for my birthday! Guess how long it took me to shoot them all off?? With great restraint they lasted me two days. Here are the best ones. I like gifts that you can make something with. Fun times.

Video Radio Star

If your attention span is anything like mine you probably won't get through these videos, but I thought I would post them here as a collection nonetheless.

Trying to get better with video. I love that all the point and shoots have such an awesome video feature these days. The possibilities are endless!

More over here...
