Sundance 2016

Friday, January 29th, 2016

Waves was a complete success at the New Frontier Exhibit of the Sundance Film Festival this year. I got my Sundance member card and participated in a series of discussions, panels and interviews with many interesting creative people that have a lot to say about virtual reality and storytelling. Here are some of them: @brillhart Principal VR filmmaker at Google, @Saschkaunseld Creative Director at Oculus Story Studio, my creative partners on Waves @BrainDickinson & @ReggieWatts, @PatrickTOsborne Director of Disney’s Feast, @ImmersiveJourno godmother of virtual reality, and @djabatt of course.

I am attending a demo party called Synchrony NYC. It is hosted at a place near Union Square in Manhattan called Babycastles and organized by my old friend @nickmofo, who invited me to give a talk about virtual reality.

WEDIDIT Merch

Saturday, December 19th, 2015

After he saw the THX inspired animation I made for the intro sequence of the VR House Party we shot with WEDIDIT in February, Nick Melons asked me to produce some graphics for their new line of Merch. I can’t wait to get my hands on some of that stuff. Hopefully it will all come out at the time we release the house party video.

Cartoon Distortion

Saturday, October 10th, 2015

Dribnet aka Tom White suggested that we teamed up to submit an application to Printed Matter’s LA Art Book Fair for next year.

“But this means we will need to make some books for it”, I said. “Exactly”, he replied.

Next thing you know we are talking about hunting down a Risograph printer and figuring out how to go nuts with it.

The LA Book Fair submission required a print oriented portfolio website, so I finally put one together and hosted it at cartoondistortion dot com. Please take a look. It’s nice to see most of my graphical morsels tightly organized and readily available like that.

Tom also had to make his own portfolio page. Hopefully we will get our little table at the book fair next year 😀

Artes Mediales desde Colombia

Monday, November 3rd, 2014

En un comunicado electrónico desde Colombia, Maria Paula Lorgia me acaba de informar que ha presentado al público el Catálogo Razonado de Artes Mediales correspondiente al Seminario Transmedia en que participé hace casi exactamente un año con la charla intitulada Propagación de Ficciones.

Este catálogo incluye mi texto Espacio público y participación narrativa en la era digital, escrito en su totalidad en el zoológico de San Diego, donde hago una reflexión alrededor de los trabajos que he tenido oportunidad de realizar en el espacio público geográfico y digital a partir de mi estancia en el MIT, donde trabajé con Antoni Muntadas, John Maeda y Henry Jenkins alrededor de temas relacionados con los medios digitales, sistemas de participación, y espacio público. Estos trabajos incluyen Querida encogí el barrio y Branches The Nature of Crisis.

El catálogo completo se encuentra disponible como PDF en la biblioteca en linea de la Secretaría de Cultura, Recreación y Deporte de la Alcaldía Mayor de Bogotá.
