A TV show I initiated, set-up and produced while working at Brooklyn School. Using a Green Screen, Sony Vegas Video, 2 Flip HD camera’s and a GoPro. Uploaded to Youtube, shared on school website and Facebook page and then played in the classroom.  An exercise in speed - the whole process was done on Friday mornings before lunch. Included notices, interviews with staff and local businesses.

I had a few pieces on display at BYOB Wellington.

BYOB (Bring Your Own Beamer) Wellington was a DIY event. Artists collaborated over the course of an evening to create a mega, moving, breathing multi media beast. It was celebration of old and new media. A pot luck dinner of pixels and projections, projected light and image.

First initiated by Rafaël Rozendaal in 2010, BYOB is now an international movement. Over 80 BYOB events have taken place throughout the world so far. From New York, Berlin to Jerusalem, and now Wellington. Facilitated by Raylene Beals and Naomi Lamb, BYOB Wellington was an event in which the participants created their own show within the 2013 Fringe Festival program.


Mine is the cute TV. what isn’t mentioned is that the TV randomly mixes the 3 sources to create new compositions. Our brains automatically try to make meaning from them, even though they are random. I call it digidada.
