From Sea To Shining Sea is a portrait of the American landscape chronicled via a coast-to-coast time-lapse video and audio collage. It is a journey in and of itself. Watching this feature-length dashcam program, one experiences the shifting, diverse physical landscape of the United States of America, from Chesapeake Bay to San Francisco Bay, united by the common thread of the interstate.
Olympic & Western is a manifesto on the proper usage of type in the built environment. Tightly adapted from a mysterious analog audio tape found on the side of the road, this video mash-up meshes infrastructural convergences and reveals intuitive paradigms by using the city of Los Angeles as a testbed for seizing urbanistic ecologies, curating front-end ecosystems, cultivating emergent methodologies, and revealing the link between street signage graphic design and the JFK assassination.
Three’s a crowd in this imagined romantic mash-up between a Serbian performance artist, her Mon Calamarian ex-partner, and a contemporary Dutch architect – animated with vintage Star Wars action figures.
This is an experimental time-lapse video that compresses the 3-1/2 hour drive from Los Angeles, California to Las Vegas, Nevada into 12 minutes. It was shot and edited on July 28, 2012 using an iPhone 4S running TimeLapse and a MacBook Air running Final Cut Pro X. The audio track consists of a sampling of scanning the AM/FM bands during the journey. A few gaps exist in the end product due to the iPhone overheating and subsequently running out of storage space, restarting the TimeLapse app every so often, and a bolt from a passing truck hitting the windshield (amazingly, no damage). We recommend the Wicked Spoon buffet at the Cosmopolitan for the Korean short ribs, yellow curry mussels over fried rice, beet salad, mashed potatoes, fried chicken, salted caramel ice cream, and vending machine dispensed wine.

DOCOMOMO Louisiana advocated for its restoration via adaptive reuse.
