So, my show was last week.Â Here is some documentation of the work.
The work that I did for the show are three different texts that were generated from a Processing sketch that I wrote. I was interested in William Burrough’s cut-up technique and using that as a starting point. So the sketch that I wrote does a web search on a term, returning the entire text from the top ten site related to that search term. Those texts are then broken into sentences, brought together, and reassembled at random into new texts. For this show, I chose to only assemble paragraphs. I choose related search terms for this — “free market,” “drunkenness,” and “decadence” — with each work representing a different term.
Hit me up if you are interested in the source code (its a bit loose to send out into the world at the moment).
Below are details of the work. Click on them for a close up.

The Murder City Devils came through on Sunday on their West Coast reunion tour. I can’t express how much this band, both musically and as people, have affected my life. To have them back, and bringing so many people together, has been amazing. I started out taking pictures at their earliest shows (I know that some of my first rolls of film are of them before their first album came out). Below are some more pictures from the show, and the entire set is here.

I should have posted this earlier, but part of the reason things have been so quiet on the blog front is that I have been working on some new work for a show that is up this week. I am really happy with the work up, and the show in general. If you are in SF, you should check it out!
