The controller for SuperControlled/SuperEvolved. Things are coming together. You can see the working project at struts on April 5th if all goes as planned.
Here is a still from a new project I’m working on with computer programming genius Christian Fiddick. It is temporarily entitled SuperEvolved/SuperControlled. It is, or will be, a series of interactive video game portraits. The viewer uses a homemade game controller to move the subject through simple motions and to activate super powers such as bursting into flames or bursting into tears. Our first portrait is of Owen Corrigan, thanks Owen!

Here is my experimental film The Animals on line for the first time. For what it’s worth I think it’s the best thing I’ve ever done. It was two years in the making. Many people helped with guidance and insight (you know who you are and thank you so much). However, it’s not for everyone, so don’t say i didn’t warn you.
The Animals (2012) a 25 minute film, shot with video and 8mm film. The Animals tells a story of repetition and regeneration; human and animal characters traverse and explore a landscape in a world without houses and technology, looking for a sense of contentment and purpose.
Penny Cosmos is an exhibition of some of my recent work and ideas. The opening is at the Parantheses Gallery in Halifax on October 19th at 7pm and the show will be up for a month. “Penny Cosmos is a snake oil salesman’s version of a museum where the fraudulent is profound and the profound is cheap and meaningless, and in between are some of the things I love. All for just one penny.” Parantheses Gallery and art projectsis dedicated to bringing to Halifax an ongoing series of artist’s exhibitions, installations, performance and other art-related events. You can find out more information about the gallery at http://parentheseshfx.tumblr.com/aboutus . I hope to see you there.
