    Zero One is a code-based generative video commissioned by Zero One Technology Festival 2018 (zeroone-tech.com/) in Shenzhen, PR China. In this project, I collaborate with L.A. based producer / music technologist Mike Gao (soundcloud.com/mikegao).

    This project consists of multiple interlinked generative systems, each of which has its customized features, but collectively share the core concept of an evolving elementary cellular automaton.

    The entire video is programmed and generated using Processing with minor edits in Premiere during composition.

  2. One man's trash is another man's condo.

    After collecting more than a million plastic bottles, Robert Bezeau made an unconventional decision — to build an entire village out of plastic bottles. One study has found that there could be more plastic than fish in the sea by 2050, so essentially anything else is preferable, no matter how out of the ordinary. For this one we traveled to the island of Bocas Del Toro in Panama to meet the young couple about to move into their first plastic bottle home.

  3. One morning, Franz Kafka was waking up from anxious dreams. Feeling not like himself, Franz was instead forty-two independently driven layers of stainless steel. This huge, kinetic sculpture, titled "K on Sun", is by Czech artist David Cerny. It can be found in a business center in Prague, distracting people from the frustrations of dealing with government employees. As I'm sure Kafka would have wanted it.

    In other words, this is a moving statue of Franz Kafka.

  4. If you’re in the market for a good, slightly used tank—we’ve got a guy.

    Patrick Nerrant has the “virus for tanks.” He means, of course, a “bug” for collecting tanks — his French interpretation of an old American idiom. Luckily for him, Normandy, France, where he lives and works, is a good place for a World War II tanks collector to be. Nerrant’s been stockpiling and rehabbing these old war machines for nearly four decades. But all good tank collections must come to an end. So Nerrant has invited people from all over the world to a public auction of his 13 tanks — likely the last time they’ll ever be in the same place at the same time.
