Branching off

From using ResEdit on Mac OS 7 to Game Genie on the Super Nintendo, as a kid I always enjoyed fucking with games & software – years later I found myself finding different ways to mess with technology and eventually started turning it into art, whether it be fractals, glitched out games or other forms of tech art.

Doing last month’s art show and actually showcasing my work in person was a big step for me. Not only was I proud to be featured, but I was always shy showing my work in person – it’s easy to post on Instagram & YouTube because I’m hiding behind a computer, but to do it face to face was a different story.

In an attempt to experiment and see what works, I have branched out onto different platforms and will continue to expand throughout the year – I now have a Patreon that offers art not found anywhere else along with other unique perks, a monthly mailing list to see what the fuck is up with me and a Society 6 storefront that features some random pieces.

Also set for this year – more progress with my VR fractal project, Chaos Theory VR, which will launch on Kickstarter with a small goal set. I’ll also be working on more interactive art experiments used in art shows / streaming and focusing on the media collaboration Discord & website.

I’m not ever going to stop being grateful for the people that came to the show, purchased art, supported me during this transition and really anyone that showed their love for my random crazy whatever-the-fuck-I-am-working-on projects. Thanks again! =D

What’s the deal with 2016?

  • Goal: Make a legit album.
  • Why: I’m pretty passionate about music, but I always feel like I need to know more before proceeding to the next step; if I make ~10 songs to stick to an album, I’ll finally feel like I’ve leveled up.
  • How: Currently learning new devices, techniques and future collaborations are in the works.
  • Goal: Create a somewhat-daily tech show.
  • Why: I feel like I could translate posts off The Verge, Engadget and Kotaku, in a quick but entertaining way. Funny, educational & raging comments will be read out loud, possibly debating with myself [two commenters] using different voices.
  • How: I already skim through articles and comments – all I would need is Flipboard or Pocket and start selecting the good stuff. Not that much editing would be need to get done – so videos should pop out quick.
  • Goal: Dedicated deep dream & glitch machine.
  • Why: My glitch art is usually fucking awesome, but the designs are usually done at a shitty resolution; it would be nice to do those and the deep dream videos in 4K. The only issue is that this system will be expensive. Blah.
  • How: Time and money.
  • Goal: Release Android game.
  • Why: Gaming is in my blood. That and I love making thangs’, so it’s only natural to combine the two, right? =| I have this game I created years ago and would like to “port” it over to Android.
  • How: Well, it’s being worked on right now…
So, what are YOUR goals? Huh? Hmmmm?
