The SOFT Glass

"The S.O.F.T. (Sonification Of Flowing Temporality) Glass is an hourglass that makes and manipulates sound. In its final form, it will be a sculptural object that can double as a musical instrument, based on the simple and enduring timekeeping device dating back at least to the 16th century BC. Utilizing a variety of sensor types, the final form will be an interactive object that users can treat as a sound-maker or a timepiece. When treated as a timepiece, the passage of time becomes marked by the eventual absence of sound.

During this difficult time, realizing this project as a physical object for the attendees of Expo to play with is no longer feasible. I'll get there. We'll get there. But for now, please enjoy this 3D model developed specifically for Expo."

When Jacob’s estranged sister Ashley asks him to reprise a role from his past, the two must come to terms with their relationship to his younger ‘female’ self in order to save their own. “Pass” is a queer one act musical in development. It had a staged reading on January 26, 2020 in the Coffeehouse […]

Three kinetic sculptures explore relationships between circularity/co-opting/recycling and linearity/polarization/binary-ness, and how personal agency or positionality intersects with these linked mechanics. (They’re NOT “voting machines;” they reflect the operation of many large systems, frameworks and conversations, e.g., the relationship between the DIY ethos and capitalism, between the political far left and far right, and among nested […]
