sound, light, visuals

art / audio

This year seems to be the year of sound and light for me. First, a trip to Marfa and the unforgettable exhibits by Donald Judd and Robert Irwin and a mesmerizing performance by Solange. All the frequent trips downtown, re-experiencing and really taking a closer look at the neighborhoods surrounding me. I am captivated by the lights and the audio and the motions of the city. I’m inspired to re-visit old favorite works from Edward Hopper , Robert Adams and Philip-Lorca deCorcia and immerse myself into their world of light and color.

Last weekend was no exception either as I attended my second year a the Day for Night festival. The festival was definitely a step up from last year with more interactive light and art installations. The Post HTX is a a pretty cool building and the festival definitely worked out most of the kinks from last year to create a more enjoyable experience. I was really blown away by all the visual and performing artists. They’re all at the top of their game and it’s great to see them captivate everyone with their talent. I remember standing in crowd watching Justice perform and being able to see the colors and lights and hear the sounds and feel the bass flow through my body and thinking to myself, this is the moment…just let go. How can music and art influence perception and emotion? How do I see and experience this world? It’s always ever changing. How shall I capture those moments and share them with others? If I can take in all these wonderful experiences, what can I put back out into this world?  These are the questions I think about and these are the ideas that drive me as an artist…

maybe we are all comets in this world, but let’s make an impression as we pass through…
