I’ve got a new paper in the book, “De-automatization.” (“Entautomatisierung.”) My text, “SVEN (Surveillance Video Entertainment Network): Looking Back and Forward” looks back at my 2007 project SVEN – with Wojciech Kosma and Vincent Rabaud – and discusses some of the changes in the cultures of surveillance and sousveillance since then.
Spoke on a panel at UCSD Women in Computing’s “Girl’s Day Out”
for high school women interested in careers in computing. Lots of fun meeting everyone and finding out the other panelists paths to becoming Women in Computing – almost all a bit complicated! And… Women in Computing gave me this t-shirt!
The inimitable Katia Haus has published this interview with me in FAQ Magazine. Woohoo! Thanks Katia!
Some pics from SVEN (Surveillance Video Entertainment Network)‘s brief re-emergence at the Filmatic Festival last month.
Thanks to Rebecca Webb, Andrew Heideman, and everyone at Qualcomm Institute for helping bring SVEN’s nosiness to Filmatic!
Here’s a post in the Times of San Diego about the upcoming Filmatic Festival – and featuring a video interview with lil ol me! Great job on the video by Emilyn Edquilang and Jordi Olimon!
Eep! Got a little wrapped up and just plum forgot to post. Still plugging away at the visual performance instrument/framework sometimes known as PIGS (Percussive Image Gestural System). It’s happily transformed quite a bit since the early iterations, so performance is better we can do some more complex/subtle things. It’s mainly all using OpenGL now (still in Jitter, taking advantage of Hap codec), and my SVEN collaborator Wojciech Kosma has been chipping in some of his Gl expertise so we can do more things with gestural and content movement than with sound – which is really the idea behind the project.
Hope to post some new video soon so you can see what I’m blabbing about.
I made a short video loop, Googling Californias (Half Truths for People on the Go) for the http://w-e-s-t-e-r-n-d-i-g-i-t-a-l.com/ exhibition of west coast artists curated by Rick Silva. Part of The Wrong – New Digital Art Biennale. Interestingly, coincides with my 20 year anniversary in California – guess I’m really a west coast artist now!
I’ve written a new text! It’s on the connection between tap dance and percussion, and how that fits in to women’s percussion history. Lots of videos, so it’s posted in two parts:
Tap Dancing Drummers and Other Female Percussionists.
