Holy crap, I made something. It’s like Pan Sonic scored the theme to a kids’ show. Or something.

Kind of amazing how quickly you can get something like this going – creepy deathmaks in mass-production!

One of the first tutorials I did, the lighting came out pretty dark so I had to blow it out a bit afterward to get all the detail to show.

Another render from one of the Maya tutorials I’ve done, personalized a little bit, but mostly just following instructions to get comfortable with the app. Using HDR for lighting, which makes it look all super.

Posting way too little lately, mostly because I’ve been working a lot more on learning Maya and Zbrush. This is an example of a fine mess I’ve made of a face in Zbrush.

Here is the picture from the New College PCP performance. I remember us using Live 2.
Does anyone know when Ableton added the cross fader feature? Anyway, enjoy.

Seal Shark

Drew this on the plane from JFK->FLL on the back of an index card. Supposed to be a nurse shark, it’s kind of seal-cat-otter-like? A new logo? sealshark.com? naaw.

Ron Mueck and Walton Ford at the Brooklyn Museum

Posted in Image on December 6th, 2006 by (contact)

These two shows are at the Brooklyn Museum right now.

200612052335

Mueck, a former special-effects artist for Jim Henson, makes hyper-realistic sculptures of people, with drastic changes to scale. There is quite a bit of work viewable online, and also a 30-minute video made available by the museum.

200612052337

Walton Ford’s show was called “Tigers of Wrath: Watercolors by Walton Ford,” and I wasn’t planning on even looking at them, assuming they were older work and were simple watercolor paintings of animals. They turned out to be equally impressive. Focusing mainly on colonialism and the interaction between humans and other animals, the paintings were a combination of fables, history, Audobon paintings and social commentary. A fair amount of his work is also available online, and there is an interesting interview available from the Brooklyn Museum’s site.

Ford’s work is showing until January 28, and Mueck’s will be up until February 4.

Back in Florida

Flew back to Florida today, leaving NYC behind for 1+ months. I’m a lot more productive down here, so if anyone wants to collaborate on anything, hit me up.

mp3 ID3 tags

Posted in Audio, Field Recordings, Found Audio, Image, Songs, Writing on May 14th, 2006 by (contact)

so, i thought it would be pretty nifty if we started to treat ID3 tags as malleable objects. rather than ID things with a scrutinizing and precise eye, one would play around with it’s description. i think it would be nice to begin to develop a dialogue with tracks by adding our own artwork…our own “lyrics”. add links to websites and descriptions that have a relation to the audio track. an ID3 wikipedia of sorts. i’m adding my contribution here, for a reference*:

sample mp3 with ID3 tags

*rather than just listen to this track, download it and play it while checking out it’s tags.
