I just came back from installing an untitled generative art piece at CultureHub. The opening is tomorrow night and while I can’t make it, there will be beer. Come hang out with the great people who make that place possible.

I’m back in the states after a ten week residency with Hexagram/TAG at Concordia University. At the end of our stay, we were asked to further develop a project from the previous seven weeks. I teamed up with Mónica Rikić, Jessica Blanchet, Dawn Hang Yue Wong and Peter van Haaften to create WURM: Escape from a Dying Star. It’s an experimental and highly immersive game based around communication. The audiovisual system is generative, and a transducer speaker makes the pilot seat feel like a Universal Studios ride. See the project in all its glory (including a video) here.

Protest Protest Revolution is a multiplayer game influenced by our collective experiences as both participants and spectators in the Maple Spring in Quebec, the Indignado Movement in Spain, the Occupy Wall Street demonstrations in New York, and the Umbrella Revolution in Hong Kong. The incongruous elements of humor, violence, confusion, and collective action which find unlikely intersections during political protests are present in this cynical homage to Dance Dance Revolution. Players must use spray paint, bang casseroles, take photographs, use umbrellas, take down drones, and throw back tear gas grenades to achieve victory. Otherwise, it’s back to electoral politics.

My team is currently working on a game based around a typical childhood dream in which you enter a spacecraft destined to save the universe. A generative audio-visual system and Arduino controlled physical controls place you in a highly immersive game world which tests your mental faculties for two minutes. You can read a short interview about it here.

Went to check out the Creative Technologies exhibit at Macy Gallery today, seeing as how I can’t make the reception on June 19. The work was really incredible, I’m honored to be a part of it and share a corner with Golan Levin. If you are reading this, you should really check it out.

Very excited to announce that I’ll be an artist in residence at Concordia University, Hexagram/TAG Research Lab this summer for Critical Hit ’15. I’ll be one of 16 international artists working collaboratively to produce experimental, culturally critical electronic games for 10 weeks.
