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 Read more about Pulse Generator Pastry – 2016[…]

Shot from the village park along the river during my first residency at Signal Culture (Owego, NY).
A few views of water and trees from my month long stay in Phonecia, NY. This video utilizes an editing technique (a sort of continuous slow horizontal slide) that I conceptualized for more than a year. After several failed attempts I finally figured out how to make it work.
Filmed at the hot springs resort of the same name in Calistoga, CA.
The original material for this video was produced during a residency at Signal Culture in 2014 using three oscillators. The output of the first two was mixed by keying those images into portions of the output of a third. Subsequently, that footage was slowed down to about 10% of the original speed. During my stay Read more about Wavelength 3.17 – 2015[…]
Short loop produced at a Signal Culture artists residency in 2014. Made using the newly built, Nam Jun Paik designed, Wobulator. Produced by sending the output of the oscillator to the Paik Abe Wobulator, with the raster on that device collapsed. This image was then filmed off the screen. Wiggle was created in response to Read more about Wiggle – 2015[…]
One of many attempts on my part to capture the magic motion of Aspen leaves, a fascination deeply embedded in memories of my childhood in Colorado. This footage was shot near Caibou, Colorado. The tape includes three different “episodes” which use a series image treatments and tricks, which further complicate the already complex motion of Read more about Aspen – 2014[…]
A meditation on the pleasures of observation. Image, music and text weave around each other in a multi-layerd dance. The images were built around the pre-existing soundtrack.
A cameraless video, made by mixing analog waveforms, with some additional digital processing.
Shot at the Ceran St. Vrain Trailhead and campground, near Jamestown, Colorado. St Vrain’s Woods was inspired by Seurat among others. An exploration of the elasticity of time, it is a moving picture made only of still images and the spaces between them. It is a portrait of a place and a moment.
Produced for Yoni Wolf and Why? Animation by Alex Woodman
