epicpoem, is  an ongoing project that sprouts rhizomes that crystallize in different forms and mediums (paintings, photographs, performance). in this instance, i arranged parts of the epicpoem that dealt with queer dance, stages, places and memories where it explores the possibilities of a world making that exist outside of straight time, as means of surviving the machine of heteronormativity…

untitled (EPIC FAIL)

Is there a fourth wall among minor cinema? the real real minor. like youtube minor.
what happens when this wall is broken?

working on the sound at the moment.
imagine some drone,
an maybe voice over.

Untitled (I Have a Boyfriend)

Mimicking the aesthetics of a screen saver, “I have a boyfriend” demonstrates the appearance of abandoned media through connecting an idle screen to the potential actions of the body behind. This piece explores idleness, authorship, gender, and possession. An excited inertia trapped on the confines of the video screen.

Adornos Sublime

Adornos Sublime is about the dual rejection (extreme eco groups, & some artist.) from the greater society systems, alienating themselves into deeper smaller cliques. The lost of the self and the search for the sublime transforms via surfing the internet.

Workload

Workload strives to conjure a dialogue between capitalized labor systems and the autonomy of art.

In this exhibition these autochthonous works are comprised of quick figurative gestures denoting penises and a hand with the middle finger raised. The choosing of these two specific gestures are based in their dual symbolism and self-reflexive property; both of which are temporally and geographically contingent to our work environment.
Oscillating between criticality and comedic value these objects foster within a competitive relationship of playfulness and ingenuity, and from the dynamics and dialectics of capitalism – the constant exchange relation between exploitation and some measure of leisure – informing all our lives.
Through materiality and hyper accumulation we show disruptions in traditional workflow patterns and temporal situations conducive to artistic expression. Their connotations on our work environment…”Yeah.” and “Fuck you!”

A Forest (Flower Petal)

3 min. 16. sec
Contemplations of nature through nature itself. A projection to a different state from the body to video grain.
& something strange happens at 1:22..
