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 added a now page to my site
i read somewhere that a rocket might be crashing back down to earth somewhere random. i only mention that because i ended up thinking about how much of the earth's surface is inhabited by humans versus how much of it is vast oceans and dunes and glaciers. this website has been a fun way for me to virtually explore this planet's surface today.
apartment woes... can't wait to move out
my kitchen sink is dripping a little into the cabinet below. it's nothing catastrophic, but it's incredible how there's almost never a time when nothing is going wrong in this apartment. calling the plumber (the landlord's "guy" who never seems to fix anything "all the way") and periodically emptying the container i placed to catch the drips -- small tasks that add up to an ongoing unnecessary mental load, when there's always something requiring attention.
Let me introduce “Plumes”: A small book/zine with algorithmically generated photo collages and computer-aided (concrete) poetry. https://nervousdata.com/plumes.html
Hand-bound physical copies are now in the making.
apartment search updates: me and my fellow mutants saw a place we liked today. we are putting in an application. hope that it works out :)
apartment search rant
beginning the search for a new apartment (with friends), and working on figuring out ways to contend with the uncertainty that comes along with that. having to share all my personal data with random landlords and agents is sketchy. & even with prices being extra low right now they are still very expensive relative to how nice the apartments themselves are. every time i have to deal with this (and it's been too often) i am reminded of how fucked the housing system here is.
