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. Somehow the rapper ASAP Ferg ended up shooting part of his video for Let It Bang standing in front of the work.
