I was commissioned by Andy Marko of Semantics Gallery in Cincinnati to create a live show as the concluding event for his annual Autumedia Festival. The space at Semantics was filled with other work in the show, so he approached Third Party, another artist run space down the street, to host the performance. I sent a general call out to friends at CCM looking for improvising musicians with the idea of forming a fairly large ensemble. I had a a number of responses and the musical group was ultimately made up of Regan Brown (Bass Clarinet), Dave McDonnell (Sax and Electronics), Carrie Magin (Percussion), Steve Weimer (Keyboard), and Zach Larabee (Drums). I also invited Loraine Wible, former student and previous collaborator, with Discerning Crane, to contribute a second stream of images. When we got to the space I decided to throw Loraine's images obliquely across the long wall with mine in the center.
Performance organized in conjunction with Passages, my one-person show at the Weston Art Gallery in Cincinnati.

Produced almost entirely at Experimental Television Center (ETC), the video uses a simple animation of a rotating rectangle (produced in Deluxe Paint on the Amiga Computer) as a stencil into which are keyed various versions of a processed live image of the river outside the window at ETC. This was my second attempt at a multi channel piece. The four programs have been shown in grid’s of twelve and sixteen monitors. While relatively simple in structure and shown only three times, this remains a personal favorite.

Collaboration with Poet/Performer Enrique Aviles. This video has its origins as a part of the “video set” for a performance by Aviles, directed by Davis Chung. In the theatrical piece Aviles played the roles of two immigrants to the US (one Mexican and one Korean) who live on opposite sides of a rooming house in the Adams Morgan neighborhood in DC. Subsequently, Aviles and I decided to create a stand alone video using one of his poems. The original footage of the neighborhood was supplemented with images of graffiti he produced and a shot of him reciting the poem in the backyard of his house in Arlington, VA.
Performance by Carl Stewart. Carl wears a suit made of Camel packs, all of which he smoked. Filmed in the garden at his house in Rye, NY, wearing a pumpkin head which he grew. Inspired by Marlon Brando’s portrayal of the death of Vito Corleone. Dearly loved by me, this video exists somewhere outside of my other artworks and was never publicly exhibited.
""Pulse Generator Pastry" is my first collaboration with my mother, the ceramic artist Betty Woodman. Betty created the shapes which contain the patterns in the video, based on the forms she uses in her work. I used those shapes as stencils into which both the positive and negative spaces were filled with textures, created using a piece of electronic test equipment called a pulse generator. The video was show in the storefont window at Salon 94 Gallery, during Betty’s show there in spring 2016. on Somehow the rapper ASAP Ferg ended up shooting part of his video for "Let It Bang" standing in front of the work.
The image was filmed off a decorative plate with a live camera which was being processed dimming, and then coming to brightness then back again. It looks like the hue was off too, giving Jesus a green tint. Produced during a residency at the Experimental TV Center.

An early experiment with time based correction and the ability to mix two tapes together, as well as one of the few projects in which I worked with an online editor who operated the controls at my direction. This tape features two versions of the same image (shot in Santa Fe) slightly staggered in time and then wiped over each other. Edited at Eve Muir studio by Trevor Long. I was paying for the studio time to edit a project for LANL and was able to squeeze extra time in to edit two videos, this one and San Mateo Drive.
The Global Library Services Discussion Group welcomes all interested colleagues to join us in a discussion about serving our library users in a global setting. This will be an opportunity for audience members to discuss challenges and opportunities they are facing, and give their perspectives on what the most important developments are in this field. From online instruction and reference services strategies, to access and inclusion challenges in serving our users across many time zones, all topics are welcome for discussion. Members of the Global Library Services DG will be on hand to lend their own perspectives in this very important discussion.
What initially looked like several change agents colliding to create a year of turbulence, came to be a year of transformation for our teaching practice. Both external forces, such as ACRL’s Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education, and internal forces, such as new strategic directions in eLearning, provided momentum as we redesigned our research guides. The presentation includes a case study of a year-long process of re-envisioning our guides to enhance content based on the Framework’s threshold concepts, incorporate responsive and accessible design, and reflect our pedagogical practices. Throughout the process we collaborated with key campus stakeholders: eLearning strategists, English Composition faculty, and the student population. In addition, our process coincided with the renovation of one of our classrooms into a collaborative teaching and learning environment. The presentation demonstrates how the new space converged with our instruction strategies.

Two channels or two versions of a video made with an early non-linear editing system "The Video Cube." Purchased by Matt Dibble, to which I made a contribution and got some time on the system. The tape attempts to form a series of wipes as if constantly changing channels. All footage is appropriated from cable tv.
Contribution to the "Exquisite Video Corpse" project. The first 8 seconds are the video I was given as a departure point, the remainder is my contribution to the chain. The final 10 seconds were given to the next contributor.
A mostly formal exercise in composition and image processing, using footage of water. Probably the first in a ongoing series of works dealing with landscape, investigating the idea of video as a contemplative viewing experience akin to painting. Filmed in California and Mexico, Developed over the course of two visits to ETC, Final editing at PPG onto 1” open reel tape.

Design As Research in the Americas (DARIA) is a newly formed organization of design researchers working across academia, industry, and government. Our primary aim is to more effectively communicate the value of design research both within the Americas and across the world. One of our first steps is to better see what is taking place in design research around the world today and to begin to connect the players. IASDR 2017 is the ideal venue for doing so.
