Recent things.

Dispatches from a website I do a piss-poor job of keeping up-to-date:

  •  I've been based in or around Tallinn for one year now.  Ptarmigan I can say has been going well; it's been an amazing thing and it's more momentum than inertia here.  We've had too much going on to fully talk about here, as we've had something like 80 events since April, but there's lots in the works for 2012,...

Oakwhistle live show in Tallinn: 17. september 2011

20 January 2012

It's hard to avoid getting emotional when cleaning out the project space that I've dedicated the last year and half of my life to, arguably the most seriously I've ever dedicated myself to anything.  And I keep telling myself - it's not over, it's not the end - it's just changing, evolving, developing, and reinventing itself.  

But a project space is at...

New web projects, affiliations, etc.

20 January 2012
Two projects I have worked on have recently launched, and I meant to post them here sooner!

 
East of Borneo is "a collaborative investigation of contemporary art", based out of CalArts and led by Thomas Lawson.  The locus is Los Angeles and Southern California, and it blends curated articles and content with user-uploaded material.  I have worked heavily on the development of this...
