Video-al Experiment

Production on a challenging video/DVD-navigational-experience for Wholphin is nearing completion. This project uses refined experimentatal protocols integrated into looping DVD navigation systems to explore what has been described as, "a massively multi-operator, asynchronous, retrocausal, end-user creation of video content."

Light/Shadow Sculpture/Portraits

As of Spring 2008, I have been refining the topcoat for the light/shadow sculpture pieces, and been investigating scalability for large-scale urban installation. Have a look.

Consciousness and the Physical World

Based on my work with International Consciousness Research Labs in the develpment and production of The PEAR Proposition, I am currently working to develop online course material delving into the work of the PEAR (Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research) laboratory.

Mariposa Grove

In May 2007 I moved into Mariposa Grove, an intentional community in North Oakland. Many related projects have resulted, such as a veggie-diesel conversion, beekeeping, urbanite and raised bed construction, and more.
