I’ve been taking my dad’s point-and-shoot camera with me lately and its quite the little pocket accessory. I loop the handle strap around my belt buckle and let it dangle on my hip. It’s much more convenient at times than my other frequently used camera. Sometimes we get so aware of what we carry around that we search for moments to be created, when essentially, it should be the other way around.
'SHAPEDNOISE' by CELESTE BOURSIER-MOUGENOT + Santa Monica Glow
"A lifeguard tower will be sited north of the pier and will dissolve in a sea of foam as the evening progresses. Foam will fall along the structure from the roof down and collect at the base in a lined basin dug into the sand. A physical barrier will separate the audience from the foam. The foam will be produced according to signals that are picked up by four video cameras situated in the adjacent parking lot. The visual data will be translated into signals controlling the amount of foam that is produced and will also stimulate an audio response broadcast in speakers placed within the tower structure. The sound will be ambient and will be controlled by the artist throughout the event. During the course of the event the foam will accumulate and obscure the lifeguard tower and will also subside; like the tide, it will come and go." [source]

“I know very subjectively what it’s like to be 21 years old and sitting in a room full of adults who are all taking about how cute your passion for your vision is and how angry that makes you,” he said. “A certain kind of young person is going to respond by saying, ‘Let’s knock the walls of this thing down, set fire to the conventional wisdom and take the future for a test drive.’ ” - David Fincher
Aloha, Aloha - Photos from last Thursday's 'LA GOT ALOHA' EVENT
Sunshine, clear skies, and nothing but a lot of highs these past few weeks. Lovelin and I featured some of our pieces at the ‘LA Got Aloha’ event this past Thursday. Live music, a concoction of cool folks - we couldn’t have asked for more. Thank you to the handful of friends that showed up. Thank you, thank you, and thank you. Who knew a couple cans of four loko, a bag of pringles, and 3 sticks of beef jersey in my car would be so fun. I didnt.
