Exciting news! My video reconstruction John Cage – 4’33” [May ’68 Comeback Special RECON] was featured on the front page of Rhizome (one of the most well known digital art networking sites) after being posted on Mediateletipos. It went semi-viral and has since been posted on a number of blogs and was even twittered a few times. Since then the video has received more than 2000 views! Special thanks to Drawing Silence, who was the first person to re-blog this video, and PietMondriaan who also featured it on their art blog.

“Pieces of Me, No. 1 & 2” (Photochop, Thistle Hall, 2011, curated by Markus McIntyre)

Two A1 collages using images of Britney Spears, made for Photochop III (curated by Markus McIntyre, Thistle Hall, 2011); “A collective exhibition of collage images from print using photo chop, scissors and glue… salut[ing] the dawn of photo lithography, the 120 year old tradition of processing images for the mass print medium.” My Britney collages were laminated and displayed on various doors around the gallery, in the way that a poster might appear in a teenage bedroom. The exhibition also featured work by Claire Harris, Will Frew, Robyn Kenealy, Ruby Nekk, Sam Stephens, Don Smith, Curtis Nixon and Di Dixon (among others).

On the opening night I also performed as Supercomposer for the first time (see below) alongside The Unknown Rockstar and The Doll, reproducing a number of my Britney Spears + Noise = HOT remixes in a live setting (and some other bits and pieces, including a HOT Jay-Z vs. Kevin Drumm mashup).
