Boys Win Faster

Boys Win Faster is a digital collage that shows what appear to be two pages from an elementary school reading comprehension workbook, presented side by side. On the left is the unaltered page, and on the right is a page with identical tatters, tears, and marks as the original, but the text is a poem that appropriates, edits, and rearranges content from the original page. The poem is an interpretation of the sociocultural subtext of the content of the workbook page.

Boys Win Faster is a nod to the ubiquitous, ironic recontextualization of Dick and Jane.

How Hot Are You? – Selfie of the Artist Beyond Red

The “selfie” is for people who use technology to fall in love with themselves.

The industrial infrared camera turned toward the artist is measuring the heat energy emitted and creating a self-portrait beyond red, having a wavelength just greater than that of the red end of the visible light spectrum but less than that of microwaves.

 Proof #1 - The Lunar Stamp Collection

The Lunar Stamp Collection comprises all stampsever issued by the Lunar Post Office. Due to thefragility of the materials the stamps, which arestored in a secure, locked repository, may not beexposed to light or air. A newly printed proof givesinsight into the remainder of the collection.The Lunar Stamp Collection is the newest additionto Moonfarming: an Illustrated Encyclopedia.Moonfarming is an experiment in multi dimensionalstorytelling, exploring nostalgia, data, andthe common need for a place of fantasy. 

Glitchometry Stripes

Daniel Temkin: Glitchometry Stripes

Each image begins as a series of vertical black and white stripes. They are sonified -- imported into an audio editor. Sound effects are added to individual color channels, transforming the image. Because the tool is used in an unconventional way, there is no immediate way to monitor the effect. The image manipulator has a sense of what each effect does, but no precise control over the result. These sound effects -- flanger, dynamic delay -- curve the initial lines, creating images reminiscent of Op Art artists like Bridget Riley and Victor Vasarely. It is a wrestling with the machine, -- as Curt Cloninger describes databending, “like painting with a very blunt brush that has a mind of its own.”

Dirty Pixels (Looking)

Dirty Pixels is an ongoing series of photographs that I have taken of various public video board displays.

With close viewing these displays, which may seem to be an advanced and digitally perfect form of technology for displaying all manner of information, quite often have glitches, malfunctions and other types of distortions which are both distracting and curious to look at.

By taking these undesired effects in to account one can see take these images to a new level as these various imperfections create a new level of viewing completely different from their original message, context and intent. Upon close examination these high tech electronic creations resemble traditional moiré patterns one gets with traditional printing, the very technology these displays were designed to replace.

The images in this series were shot in Times Square, NY and Gillette Stadium, Foxboro, MA

The figurines are glass castings of 3D scans of the artist. They are situated on opposing sides of a boundary between two mutually-inclusive states (light/dark, tropical/polar, life/death).

I was in Japan for New Year’s Day, which is a personal boundary for all of us.

Though having returned to the United States, I feel like I’m still in Japan.

The Drivers and the Cameras

The Drivers and the Cameras is the third part of The Google Trilogy: a project about the relationship between humans, power and technological errors.Each Google Street View car is equipped with a Dodeca 2360 camera with eleven lenses, capable of photographing 360 degrees. Afterwards the photos are assembled, creating a stereoscopic view, and an algorithm developed by Google automatically blurs the faces of people to protect the privacy of those accidentally portrayed. To create this series of photographs, I went looking for faces that had escaped Google Street View’s algorithm and the eleven portraits I isolated immortalize the drivers of the Google car. The driver becomes a sort of phantom power; he appears where he shouldn’t be and his presence escapes censorship. His face is the symbol of an error yet at the same time shows a human side and, perhaps, the limits of technological power.
