2011 with Ryan MurdockGrown Music, is a video and sound piece created with Ryan Murdock that uses the time lapse footage of a 5'x5' garden plot shot over the course of 3 months as a score/data source for creating algorithmic music. The growth and movement of the garden’s plants are reflected in sound generated by a program that analyses changing patterns in each frame of the video. The music uses both electronically generated sounds and recordings of the plants themselves. The video was screened directly above the garden plot that served as the visuals and audio source. It was created for and presented as part of 5x5x5, a gardening & art project curated by Nora Herting and Ann Chen. For the harvest celebration at the end of the growing season, we projected the video behind the bed of plants that generated it. The structure framing the image is the frame we built for the overhead time lapse camera:

From Chums to Chumps Fly My Flag Roll The Night Away:
A collaborative project organized by Flux Factory, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council and the Believer Magazine, Secret Clubhouse was a beautiful rumor. Constructed over the course of several months by multiple artists, it was shown for a single night through a speakeasy style liaison at a neighboring bar.
From project description: "In Secret Clubhouse #1, a still-unrevealed location in a warehouse in Long Island City, artists have been working for six months. Each artist received a key to the space but had no idea what they would find. Each artist was given two weeks to produce work based on whatever was left behind by previous artists. None of the artists know each other, yet each has the same task: to solve the unfinished aesthetic ‘problems’ left behind and create new challenges for the next artists. As they work, they leave phone messages on an answering service explaining what the space looks like as they’ve found it, what they have changed, and why."
