I’ve been organizing a lot of video files recently and I found this gem today. Living in southern California I have developed a fascination of the freeway overpasses. I filmed this one when driving in Los Angeles from the north bound 110 onto the north bound 101. I kept the sound file as a news program covering life in Syria happened to be on the radio as I was recording. Every time I hear about Syria the situation seems to get worse instead of getting better. Sending my love to the beautiful people of that beautiful country. I’ve never been there but hope to see it some day.
This week take a peak at what is happening in the digital art scene of Los Angeles.
I recently submitted a video art piece titled “Sisters” to the Downtown Los Angeles Film Festival. One of 15 digital shorts selected, I’m really looking forward to the screening Saturday morning (see details below). Meanwhile, the artist reception will be at LACDA (Los Angeles Center for Digital Arts) this Thursday night as part of LA’s Downtown Artwalk. Hope to see you there!

Often when I walk up or down stairs I find myself thinking about scenes from an Alfred Hithcock film or M.C. Escher’s “House of Stairs”. Tuesday as I walked up this particular set of stairs I decided to film the experience. Click to watch:
I’m still on my version of maternity leave, meaning “on a break from posting videos on my various YouTube channels while I feed baby from my booby.” And as many of you know an internet addict like me can’t quit cold turkey, so of course I have adjusted all my social networking settings so that in one click from my iPhone I can post random home videos to all my various sites. Good times. Click below to watch videos from Mommyland, or as Jesse likes to call it “The Dairy Farm”.
June gloom is here, but hopefully not to stay. Click to watch what we do in Super Cali Land to fight off the gloom:
Every week my good friend Erica Rhodes and I go to Market Mass and then cruise the Farmer’s market on the 3rd Street Promenade in Santa Monica. Click to watch.
My mom came to visit for Easter and we got to attend Cai Guo-Qiang’s Mystery Circle Explosion Project for MOCA and the next day, a local Easter Egg Hunt. The Easter Bunny himself even made an appearance! Check it out:
