    The Faithful is a two channel video installation originally shot on 16 mm film. On one wall a succession of men are posing alone in front of a mural in a leather bar. There are five men of different ages, body types and races. On the opposite wall, six men are posing in front of a pool table. Once projected in a gallery, the men will appear to be cruising each other from opposite sides of a virtual bar. Since the number of portraits is not the same on each wall, when the videos loop, the men will be flirting with a different partner. Documentation taken during "The Great Refusal: Taking on New Queer Aesthetics" exhibition at the Sullivan Gallery in Chicago.

        The Labors, Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, 2011. Without You I’m Nothing: A four-month companion series of artist and audience activations Curated by Tricia Van Eck January 11–16 Mark Jeffery and Judd Morrissey The Labors Tues–Sun 10:30 am–12:30 pm (interviews) & 2:30–4 pm (performances) The Labors combines text, movement and astronomy in an exploration of both labor and the night sky. Taking on the role of in-residence researchers at the MCA, the artists interview visitors about their occupations, labor histories, and the meaning of the word work, particularly during a time of economic uncertainty. Collaborating with dramaturge and performance artist Fiona Wright, the artists will create a movement sequence for nine male performers, using the interviews as source material. The performer’s positions and motions are determined in part by a computer program that generates a real-time map of celestial objects above the museum according to an online catalogue of star data. Inspired by the Hoover Dam’s sculpture, The Winged Figures of the Republic, and the celestial floor map at the base of the dam, The Labors is also influenced by numerous historical and cultural references, including Busby Berkley’s choreography, the novel The Grapes of Wrath, Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s New Deal, and artist Sol LeWitt’s geometry. The Labors marks the passing of time with everyday gestures, functioning as an ephemeral human monument to the body at work. The Labors is performed by: Justin Deschamps Sam Hertz Zachary Kolodjeski Chris Knowlton Zihan Loo Joshua Rackliffe Blake Russell Louis Turcotte Interview assistants: Hope Esser and Daviel Shy Movement assistant: Karen Faith Camera: Fiona Wright Edit: Daviel Shy

          Live Activations of The Precession: An 80 Foot Long Internet Art Performance Poem On March 4th, 5th, and 6th, a large-scale durational event extended and activated the 10-screen projected artwork, The Precession, via a systematic orchestration of live elements within the main gallery, catwalk space, and outdoor areas of Hyde Park Art Center. Friday, March 4, 7:30 - 9:30 pm Saturday, March 5, 7:30 - 9:30 pm Sunday, March 6, 6:30 - 8:30 pm Performance components included choreographed readings of texts being generated upon the façade, a Busby Berkeley inspired movement sequence mixing gestures of labor with embodied formations based on the stars above the building, and live and screen-based responses to works by Sol LeWitt (the sun) and Rebecca Horn (the horned moon). A chorus sang a song, an incoming stream of Twitter texts, and excerpts from the source code of The Precession. The performance was synchronized with the facade projection using an open-ended structure that repeated approximately every hour (and therefore twice per evening). Visitors may entered or left at any point. Combining writing, text-mining and processing, the real-time positions of celestial objects and depictions of the laboring body, The Precession constructs a performance of visual-poetic movements across the 10 screens of Hyde Park Art Center's digital façade.
