multimedia is the new mix tape!

In Joey Seawell’s multimedia class, we received an MP3 file of a “Hearing Damage” by Thom Yorke and were given permission to just go crazy. There was no wrong direction to take. The only requirements were that we needed to include at least 30 seconds of the song and the project had to run 1-1.5 minutes.

My sound editing could use some polishing (I’m sure I don’t have to point out the choppy music transition at 1:11), but wow, this was fun.

I used an LED light wand and longish exposures to make the light patterns. My ol’ buddy Derek Anderson and new friend Nidhi Parekh were the mask dancers and my awesome collaborators.


la Virgen de Guadalupe

During Immaculate Conception’s beautiful annual celebration of la Virgen de Guadalupe, the resplendent Lady resided on a rose-covered float that processed through Durham neighborhoods. She was accompanied by singing and dancing parishoners, many Juan Diegos, and some guys in mysterious masks. Everyone ended up at the church for a mass to celebrate the holy day.
