Project Light House

Project Light House

The NIU School of Art and Design Time Arts students had a show of some of this semester’s work on Tues. Dec 2nd @ 6p.m. The show consisted of several video projectors set up throughout the House Cafe. Each projection will be a looping video that, in some way, relates to the surface it is being projected on.







Making Music at STEMfest 2014

For the 2014 NIU STEMfest I worked a booth with Vikas Deo and Wesley Morgan (two grad students in the School of Music, NIU).  Wes and Vikas performed electro-acoustic compositions they created during a class I co-taught earlier in the year. I created a Max patch for the event that sampled the voice of a person and then let them replay a synthesis of the voice using a Wii controller.


Suburban Tire Art Show

Suburban Tire

I debuted a new video art piece entitled Four Lands as part of “Art at Work” which was sponsored by the St. Charles Art Council. The program seeks out non-traditional venues for displaying art. This month’s inaugural event was hosted by Suburban Tire Auto Repair Centers on Rt. 38 in St. Charles, IL. The work was displayed across four large flat panel screens which, during the day, are used for tire advertisements. The Fox River Valley has a burgeoning art scene to which the St, Charles Arts Council is making some
exciting contributions.


Updating the studios!


It was a lot of work, but with the help of my grad students, I updated the NIU Time Arts’ green screen room and we made a Foley/VO booth.  I’m really looking forward to all the art my students are going to make in these rooms this Fall semester.
