I’ll be a researcher-in-residence at Signal Culture during March 2019, where I’ll be continuing my research on a media art history of phosphor. The system at Signal Culture is home to a number a number of unique video tools and synthesizers including a Hearn, Wobbulator and a one-of-a-kind Jones Raster Manipulator. I’ll also be investigating the temporality phosphor persistence using Phosphortron, an app created by Eric Souther, which simulates phosphor trails in real-time.
“Responsive Aesthetics: Remediating Digital-to-Analog Television Converters as Artist Tools,” a paper I co-wrote with Jason Bernagozzi and Eric Souther, has been published in the October 2018 issue of the Journal of Artistic Research. The paper focuses on our research and conversion of a digital-to-analog converter box into a real-time datamoshing tool (pictured above)
I will be presenting a paper entitled “Witnessing as an Affective Aesthetic” at the Capacious: Affect Inquiry / Making Space Conference in August 2018.
