"When we speak of boundary crossings in public space, we mean intimacies caught, like moths, in public places; or screens large and small, in our pocket, and on the facades of buildings. They whisper to us from satellites, advise us. They have a ferocious sense of humor. They distort our faith in what we see and touch, through media fictions that become increasingly normal to us. They turn media memories into everyday “things.” As the story goes, fiction is somehow more believable than fact. It is as if we were increasingly unable to differentiate between our daily life and another place, a kind of space station where media architecture changes by the second."
This summer I attended a two week workshop in animated arts in Public Space at PNCA in Portland. The images show my 3 piece intallation called "Point of Origin" of Komodo Dragons.
