El Tortuga Resort Spa at Stranded!











I helped build Jeanne Angel's spa installation at Winkle & Baltic's Stranded! party on September 5th. This piece included a video projection gateway, a garden with fountain for rinsing drink cups, a bike-powered spin art activity, tea service, yoga instruction, massage tent, chilled towel service and wading pool with sound therapy. I worked mainly on the pool, which seated up to 12 people, and was full of luminescence river stones collected in Maryland and upstate NY, using Luminova pigment. Jeremy Slater and Tamara Yadao created the audio installation which married perfectly with the installation. This was one of the most well-received art projects I've been involved in!

Thee Majesty at Centre Pompidou

Jeanne Angel and I are working on video for the Genesis P-Orridge performance at Centre Pompidou on April 4

A little bit about this project:
90% "JUNK DNA" when analysed many ways proves to be a LANGUAGE! a FALLEN ANGELIC SCRIPT hidden in our DNA driving us to homogeneity and the creation of a global brain that will allow these faLLEN ANGEls TO CO-OPT TOTAL CONTROL OF HUMANS AS SLAVES, ORBIODRIVES OF THEIR SUPERCOMPOUTER. tHE 1 AND 0 BINARY CODE ARE A MEANS OF separation =DEATH )DAATH) AND OF COURSE THE NEED FOR THE one TO enter THE zero (YONI) TO replicate BUT ALWAYS A SPLIT BEING. tHE angelic RESISTANCE ARE THE pandrogynes..tHE pandrogyne IS THE oCROSSED BY THE 1. oR ANOTHER WAY TWO ZERO'S MERGE TO CREATE A LARGER SINGLE CELL ETC. a VERY DIFFERENT FORM OF ANGELIC BIOCOMPUTER...
