Check out this new web exhibition of .gif art put together by Jennifer Chan called “Crazy, Sexy, Cool”!
Here’s a bit of seasonal cheer for you: the 2013 annual GIF Wrapping event, hosted by Anthony Antonellis.
119 artists were assigned a “Secret Santa” type of role to another artist – every person made a unique .gif animation for the person that they were assigned.
I’ve never shown in China before, so I am extra happy about this!
I took some photos at the shoot for The Light Painting Project that I did with a great team of people from the local fashion community. I took all of these photos inbetween the “official” shots, which you can see here.
I had the pleasure of recently working with a group of really talented folks from the fashion industry at an experimental light painting fashion shoot the other day.
I will be VJing at an upcoming SKYLAB event in Saskatoon, come check it out! :D
My friend Erik Rzepka is doing a talk at the Institute for the Humanities at Simon Fraser University called “Technoscience and Participation: Art, Literature and the Social Web” on Wednesday, Dec. 11, 2013. He will be screening my Pizzabook promo video and the Ectocism video I made with Jon Vaughn.
My friend Jennifer Chan is hosting a fundraising event for her upcoming issue of DPI magazine with Studio XX in Montréal. She asked me to submit a .gif for her all-night .gif projections and I am really happy to participate in this, it’s got a great lineup and looks like a phenomenal time!

There is sooooooooo much stuff to see!!! Two new video projects of mine are featured in Anthony Antonellis‘ pavilion “Young Internet Based Artists“, which launches Monday, November 4, 2013.
For Hallowe’en this year, I decided to go as a person who got slimed in the library scene in Ghostbusters. I made a slime headpiece, shoulderpad, and velcro floating blob to complete the look.
This is a silent video that I created from glitching 3D parameters on a simple white palm tree cutout shape. I use these silent videos as layers in my live video mixing performances.
This is a silent video clip I made by animating marble textures and messing with 3D parameters in modul8. I use it as a layer in my live video mixing performances.

Brief demo of work for performance at Neutral Ground (Regina) as part of “ģ̶Ł̶1ɫ̶Cʮ̶_Δ┌┼ \/\/\/\/\/\/!┬ jonCates”(Glitch Symposium with Jon Cates)
Jon Vaughn and I are really excited to be going to Regina this weekend to do a short audiovisual performance at Neutral Ground as part of a Glitch Art Symposium with jonCates. I have wanted to meet jonCates for a long time now, so I’m especially glad this is happening so close to Saskatoon.
The lineup for this weekend is incredible – it’s an international group that jonCates has put together whose work spans so many forms and references it is hard to count. Read on to see the whole lineup and a little treat from Jon and I!
This is a silent video clip that I made from scratch that I use as a layer in my live video mixing performances.

Here’s a cute digital makeover my facebook friend Lizzy McQuire made of me the other day!
O forgive me universe, I have posted a selfie shoot.
The images for this work were created in 2003 for a project where Carrie used a piece of OS9 software art by Adrian Ward called “A portrait of Netochka Nezvanova” to create a generative video collage of a collection of over 10 000 .psd files Carrie had prepared on the topic of “cyberculture”. This video is the remix, prepared in Feb. 2013 for an online exhibition by Ellectra Radikal and Systaime Alias Michael Borras at cupcake.spamm.fr/.
Video mix recorded live by Carrie Gates.

I am really excited about the launch of this new video project I just completed. NOISEY is a music website out of Berlin for VICE magazine that features a lot of cool established and up and coming artist’s work, through music reviews and world premires of music videos. Thanks to Nadja Sayej, NOISEY picked up the new music video I did for TUSK and launched it on their site.

Yes, it’s a response to the whole seapunk fiasco.
Here are a couple of silent VJ clips I made that I mix together with other videos when I perform live. I used Super Mario 2 graphics for this set and glitched them up with 3D stuff in modul8.
Pizzabook is a little bit of code that turns the facebook interface on your computer into a crazyyyy pizza animated experience.

When I was in Lucerne, Switzerland a few weeks ago performing at the Blue Balls Festival, I was interviewed on a Swiss television talk show called “Meet The Artists” with Hannes Hug. I decided that in order to ease my nerves, I would turn the interview around on him and make the host the star by hijacking the scene and making him act out a video shoot with me. I directed him to pretend he was in a fancy little getup and a pink wig for me and got him to werk it on camera! It was a lot of fun!
Urs Leirier from the Blue Balls Festival in Lucerne, Switzerland, commissioned me to create a seven hour HD audiovisual mix. The video was looped for the entire duration of the week-long festival in the open-air rooftop Video Lounge in the KKL. This respected jazz festival was celebrating not only it’s 20th anniversary, but also the attendance of over 100 000 people. I commissioned DJs to create custom mixes for me to use in the project, including Sarah Adorable, Dreamaniac, Cheeky, Helium 3, DJ Mehta, and Dr. J.
