About The Satellite Project +

Over a two year period I participated in a residency program at the New Museum called New Inc. During this time I co-founded a research and development lab focused on the invention of new technology for in-camera photography and film-making. My hope has been that this lab would be a place for the development of technology that would otherwise not exist. It has led to the development and patenting of various light based technologies which provide new ways of playing with the representation of time. This work extends my interest in how we experience and learn about our world through imaging technology that is directly in conversation with it. I'm specifically interested in how we perceive and deal with past moments through these technologies.

This page is a journal where I will be sharing experiments and new work from this project.

Here and Then +

Specific past moments, changeable in the present -- a shifting history.

These experiments combine simple optical devices with materials sourced from the construction of domestic spaces, focusing on overlapping materials in various states such as sand and glass. The invention of light-sources moving at supersonic speed enables the use of moving light within images arrested in time.

Viewed in a physical space, this interactive image changes when from different angles.


 

One moment (1/60th of a second) under two light sources tracing the suns path from two hemispheres. 
Glass, sand and string. Filmed in-camera using separate, concurrent light sources moving at supersonic speed.

This is one minute of a seven minute film captured in-camera in a fraction of a second.  Multiple light sources, moving at several times the speed of sound, are recorded simultaneously — each providing separate footage of the same moment. Music by Joshua Eustis.
