      An antiquarian man. A contemporary daughter. For 15 seconds two worlds collide and from the black arts emerges poetry.

        My usual shtick--nude models are extracted from old daguerreotypes and other old media, then colored and otherwise manipulated, then placed in settings I find interesting. All music is from AudioNetwork.com.

                Photography was introduced to the world in 1839 in France by Louis Daguerre and quickly spread throughout Europe, the United States, and the rest of the world. Surviving photographs taken of human subjects outside over the next decade in the United States are some of the most scarce in existence. This video attempts to assemble the largest collection of such photos taken between 1842 and the early 1850's.

                      Study for trans-sensory organisms - - activation of humans senses through defined audiovisual wave frequencies. Bearing in mind a visitor’s “tired eye” saturated with millions of visual information, the installation insist on engaging the whole human body in perceiving the project. “1 0 0 1” employs light flashes and binaural beats to create the illusion, the moment when the observer finally gazes at 1838 photography by Louis Daguerre, titled “Boulevard du Temple”. The work reconstructs the possible “truthful” depiction of this freeze moment. The observer can discern black lines/blur in motion until the moment when it becomes obvious these are people, passers-by. The time has been turned back. duration: 10'01" (loop) year: 2008
