The Lament series is a collection of video graphics work generated using only simple sine tones as both source and control signals. The wave form signifies a pure cyclical process, one that is intimately linked to the revolution of planets, their orbit about the sun, the changing of tides, and the topology of water in motion. The Lament series stems from a meditation on the eco-destructive powers of mature global capitalism, and a loss of innocence symbolized by the polluting of our aquatic ecosystems.
This work was produced at the Experimental Television Center in Owego, NY in 2009 as part of the summer artist in residence program. The video signals are completely synthesized from sine tones and colorized using a Sandin image processor. Lament I & II are single channel multi-projector video installations.
Lament II can be realized a either a 2, 4, 6, or 8 channel installation with 2channel bass enhanced installations. For the 2 channel version, the single video channel is mirrored vertically to the right, perfectly adjacent to the original signal on one wall; the 4 channel version projects a vertically mirrored 2-channel image against the far wall of a room, with the 1 channel each vertically mirrored and projected on opposing walls; the 6 channel version projects the vertically mirrored pairs on 3 of 4 walls of a room; the 8 channel version requires 8 screens oriented in a circular panorama, each image a vertical mirror of the adjacent screen. The effect should be much like a panoramic kaleidoscope.
We set out to create a one of a kind public art experience, a projection mapping installation for multiple surfaces and multiple dimensions. Created by a hand picked team of artists with sponsorship by AT+T, Senovva, Light Harvest, and Leo Kuelbs.
Unfolding like an animated modern Botticelli painting, flowing above our heads and spreading outwards
in every direction, “As Above, So Below” immersed viewers in the architecture of the Manhattan Bridge. Audiences physically entered the story and explored the shimmering surface as it ignited with messages and symbols.
This originally conceived video mapping project was a challenge offered to a group of artists from varying backgrounds. Led by digital arts pioneers Farkas Fulop and Ryan Uzilevsky, with post production support by Sina Taherkhani, the group created a one-of-a-kind experience. Adding to the fun were Artists Simon Anaya, John Parker, Richard Jochum and Johnny Moreno. The final projection utilized over 25,000 square feet of architectural canvas, and ultimately won "Best In Show" at the Dumbo Arts Festival.
This production tested every technique in image-making conceivable in the short time frame, including stop motion animation, and the suspension of over twenty performance artists from fly wires at sixteen feet off the ground.
Leo Kuelb is responsible for securing the site and bringing the original team together. He also put together a great international video art showcase between screenings of "As Above, So Below."

"Voice Array," 2011
intercom, 576 white LED lights, holosonic speaker, custom-made hardware and software
display dimensions variable
"Voice Array" is a construction for vocal improvisation that uses blinking LEDs and a customized intercom system of audio playback and recording. Capturing hundreds of voices and translating each one into a series of light flashes, the piece stores a unique pattern as a loop in the first light of the array, until the next participant speaks into the intercom. Each new recording is pushed along its long horizontal band of LEDs, as sounds of the voices gradually accumulate. When the first voice reaches the other side of the piece, the participant’s phrase is once again released as sound, punctuated by the staggering pulsation of all the lights in tandem. The ever-changing voices stored by the piece play back through a directional speaker, during moments of less activity.
