my regular projection crew are not available for an event i need help with. vonliptov is an event hosted by marshall dragun and is on february 1st. does working with digital art projections interest you? please read on! when: february 1st at bell jar cafe 2072 dundas street west at howard park ave. projections from 10pm to 2am and then help getting equipment back after just one block away.

i am looking for someone who knows MAC computers and projectors and can problem solve on their feet. someone who can be there for entire time for february 1st. the system is currently set up in my close by studio- wednesday through saturday i’ll be testing it here. on feb 1st i’m moving the whole thing to the venue. i will be there for set up but for the night i am needed at two other events. i would be constantly available by phone. it is a three projection set up using two walls and one rear projection screen. there are two separate hour and half playlists. the system needs babysitting especially because of a pastiche of equipment which often needs tweaking and creative problem solving. i’m adding a video here of the partial set up to give a sense of what i’m doing with chasing images. belljar is a great venue and the vonliptov folk are super cool.

this is a fundraiser for parc -the parkdale activity recreation centre- so there is no money involved. if things work out i am also looking for a new ongoing film/ art intern for my ongoing projects in 2014. to see what kind of work we do

intern or just come out for the one night and help me out . have an excellent week everybody! please pass this along…

in-the-moment story creation is the most fun thing i can imagine. i am totally hooked. i lose myself completely in all parts of the process. with an idea of the direction i’m going based on intuition, images and feelings. i find half in the moment of shooting and half during picture and sound editing. i usually see a couple of steps ahead but those can change based on what i find in the moment. while i tend to have a clear idea of what i am looking for, i surprise myself with sometime finding more authentic, unexpected or wilder than i imagined. like mama dada having two heads on occasion.

i see clearly what i am shooting tomorrow, therefore, i know i’m on the right track. i am actually compelled to start shooting right now fifteen after midnight, but slow is my new fast. enjoy the time to play create and i a learning to take a breath in between.

I have a vision of creating myself as a whole family. Father, mother, self, sister, brother, child. I saw it as a silent black and white film series telling the fictional history of the Haus of Dada. The beginning is the meeting of Mama and Papa Dada. Mama Dada is an artist and Papa is a romantic fool who does everything Mama’s love. He is in love with the reflection of himself in her.

Slow is the new fast, so I decided to break this down to tiny pieces. Today I found a look and the beginning of Papa. He turned out silly and vain feeling like the bastard child of The Burger King and Dali. I think I’m onto something. Papa’s musical uncle is Klaus Nomi.

With this act, I activate the history of the Haus and so Papa Dada is born. Happy Birthday Papa I look forward to meeting you soon again.
