“Erotic Objects began as a study of autoerotic machinery, looking at the gadgets, devices, and toys people use to, well, ‘get their engines revving’. The result is a series of surrealist contraptions, eternally chugging along, ‘forever longing to be used, abused and desired’.”— Alex, Electric Objects

I get easily distracted, so... I can’t really watch anything while working, however, music plays an essential role in my creative process. Most of the time I listen to my Soundcloud collection on shuffle or any of the brilliant musicForProgramming(); mixtapes.
Not like it matters or anything.
Excited to say I just killed a half-year long hiatus with this EO collection; been working too hard with keeping myself together in the meantime. There’s also a semi-secret video piece I’ve been working on for almost a year. Can’t say much about the project for now, except that these two sculptures appear in it. Occasionally, I design posters like this one for NYU Game Center or my friends.
Probably a piece called “Better Love” which is a NewHive collage I designed for Beacon’s “Better Love”. It involved a really delicate planning process and it was extremely fun to work on. So, it must be either that or the site commissioned by Hirad Sab and Dalena Tran for SOOZ 1.9. I was reading a lot of Vilem Flusser’s work at that time and ended up making “Isoglyphs”, a piece that explores the influence of the concept of linear writing.
I don’t think any of you would find it particularly interesting, since it’s mostly me smoking and procrastinating by cleaning up my immediate surroundings.
I focus on using as few tools as possible. Working with Linux can be a bit tiresome, but it offers some unique challenges and it certainly changed the way I look at software. Almost every piece I have ever created is made in either Blender, ImageMagick or Sublime Text. When I’m offline, I can’t go anywhere without one of these.
