July 19th 2008
Santa Monica's Cultural Affairs in a very forward move has organized an all night festival called, "Glow" Based off of Paris's Nuit Blanche city wide events. Torino Italy hosted a few while I was there for the Olympics, Miami, Toronto have also host these all night cultural events. I'd like to call it an all night party sanctioned by the city.
Glow, has commissioned me to create an installation for the festival. The festival is called Glow based off the Grunion fish that mate on the beach and cast an iridescent glow.
Working with the Glow theme I am installing a video installation based on the movements of a gold fish.

(Goldie) Two cameras are placed on the fish tank, The cameras are processed through MAX/Jitter using blob detection and projected on the store front windows of Tengu Sushi Restaurant on Ocean Ave. in Santa Monica. As Goldie swims through various quadrants of the video frame she will trigger visual effects to span across the two screens in the window.

Goldie becomes the VJ and I get to hang out and have fun.
Very, very special thanks to John Taylor for his Jitter programming. John also did the programming on my Futbal de Calle pentagon installation I did a couple year ago for Red Bull's Soccer team.
Come down and join us July 19th 2008 for Glow. It's free and there are numerous installations and performance all night long. Really, all night, from dusk to dawn.
Special thanks to the folks at Tengu, besides great food they have been wonderful to work with and I couldn't have done this without their support.

DVJ X1 For Sale $1600.00 with case (Local only)

So before I put this up on ebay I wanted to offer it to the community first.

The DVJ X1 is the first release model of the Pioneer DVJ models. It is the more expensive model due to the Component out on the back.
Specs can be found here.

It is in very good condition and has only been used at gigs maybe 10 times.
It has all the updates.

I prefer to sell it locally, cash only. You can come by and try it out before purchasing.
It comes with this nice hard case that cost me around $250.00

Eventually, I'll be posting in on Ebay. Maybe in a week if it doesn't sell locally.
