Pinned toot

my name is paloma, and i am an a/v artist in brooklyn, ny. i work with video feedback and synthesis and analog video signals, and also software and code. on the sound side, i like to explore audio synthesis and processing techniques, radio signals, and field recordings.

i post little experiments and tests, sometimes events or bigger things im working on, sometimes just what's on my mind or cool things i find. and i love to see what others are up to on here too!

i actually didn't even know you could select words and it would define them, the fly showed me how.

i am going to make an extremely large amount of curry.

it's the four year anniversary of my starting to keep a weekly log.

both shows this past weekend went really well. now i am so tired, and need to hide for several weeks probably. one of the shows was at our new house. we set up our garage & yard as an a/v performance stage and had installations in the basement. it went really well, we had many guests and they were all chill and respectful.

doing visuals for a show soonish here at trans pecos, apparently it's being streamed at as well

made a case for this ebook reader i found at a thrift store, inspired by some of @liaizon 's drawings. currently re-reading TAZ on it.

we went to the beach yesterday at dusk and the sky was a perfectly smooth gradient. it was warm enough to jump into the water but the waves were a bit violent. we lay around on blankets until it was completely dark out.

A beautiful Oleander Hawkmoth (Daphnis nerii) spotted perched on a wall in the Hougang area, Singapore, on 7 July, 2021. I could get close to it to get these shots.

we were jamming yesterday on the subterranean level of mutantplex to prepare for our performance as Nu Delusion this saturday. also, we have been lent a 10 foot free-standing projection screen which will make setting things up for the show much easier (so we don't have to mount anything in the ceiling of our garage)

"Marvelous pursuits are a means to resist alienation from one’s environment because they are a temporary means to make that environment one’s own, by ascribing one’s own, often bizarre, value for things and spaces.

The marvelous pursuit often creates complexity but a complexity which is opposed to that of the technician. The ‘master’ of a marvelous pursuit can never be an engineer because the marvelous is by nature useless to society (and therefore to capital). "
