A few shots taken using our Oyster City app; this is just prior to our July Swing Space Open Studio on Governors Island, NYC. Rachel and I are happy that we were granted this space, March – July 2013, by the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council. These shots show the Aquaculture site of Oyster City being played/experienced. Oyster City is an iOS app as walking tour and game being produced by Meredith Drum and Rachel Stevens in collaboration with Phoenix Toews.

Oyster City test shots out on Governor’s Island, July 2013



Rachel Stevens and I are testing different augmented reality elements for our Oyster City AR app here on Governor’s Island (NYC) during our Lower Manhattan Cultural Council swing space residency. These are screen shots of our tests. Oyster City is an environmentally focused walking tour and game as augmented reality iOS app. It will be released this summer as a free download on the Mac app store. We hope to move to other platforms soon, droid and windows. We want to expand our audience beyond those with Mac products. Our programming resources are limited, though, and programming for multi-platform takes a good bit of time so this is still on the wish list. If any programmer would like to donate time to the project, we would be thrilled.

Article about Terrestrial Transmissions show at U of Virginia.

The Double

Lydia Moyer wrote a smart article about the show she curated at the University of Virginia that included my short science fiction video, The Double. She says: Of particular interest to me was the theme of transmission—the attempts to communicate with some kind of other. Of course transmission is not an uncommon theme in video art, having roots in broadcast or signal transmissions. But these transmissions seemed different, more human–coming out of a deeply held desire to communicate with something outside the self, be it men or plants or the great unknown. Read here.
