Light Barrier, 2014

Kimchi and Chips create phantoms of light in the air, crossing millions of calibrated beams with their work . The light installation creates floating graphic objects which animate through space as they do through time.


A fascination with natural light drove the technique of the impressionist painters, they explored new qualities of colour and the trail of time. Kimchi and Chips' study of digital light discusses a new visual mechanic, their installation adding to the visual language of space and light. As the artist's inquiry deepens, brush strokes become descriptive like code, detailing reality and allying light with canvas.

Light Barrier was co-commissioned by FutureEverything and the British Council. It premiered at New Media Night Festival, Nikola-Lenivets 4–6 June 2014.

This system creates truly volumetric projections which can define 3 dimensional forms in space, in contrast to 'hologram' screens and fog screens which create planar images.

3D printed model of San Francisco - making of

Behind the scenes 3D printed model of San Francisco:
Autodesk and Steelblue have partnered to create this connex 500 printed 3d model of a portion of San Francisco. The model was created to aid real-estate developer Tishman Speyer in telling the story of urban development in the rapidly changing SOMA neighborhood. It can help with urban planning and building construction decisions that are better understood with the kind of physicality that only a real-world 3D replica offers compared to digital images or digital models.

Santuri Safari - Gabaire Xylophone Uganda

We travelled to Iganga in Uganda to record the Gabaire Xylophone. This instrument takes 7/8 people to play and creates the most wonderful sound. Deep sub tones and higher complex percussive sounds which when played together create this very musical cacophony of unmatched magnificence. The lower tones were sampled to use as building blocks for East African producers to remix into tracks to rearticulate their authentic instruments in their contemporary genres. soundthread.org

Wode: Trails Of Smoke

At this year's amazing Sounds From The Other City Festival, we were lucky enough to film some live sessions with a few of the acts on the bill.

So, with the help of our audio beasts WR Audio, we set up on the top floor of Islington Mill and spent the day filming with three very different bands. Needless to say, it was great.

500 Miles to Nowhere, The Niviuk Edit

Paragliding pilots Nate Scales, Nick Greece, Matt Beechinor and Gavin McClurg attempt a bivvy line from Hurricane Ridge, Utah to Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Filmed by Michael Paul Jones and Jeremy Canon with RED Epic cameras, human flight has never been captured in such a dramatic way. Come along for the ride as the pilots are stymied by frustrating weather but find their love and passion for flight grows even deeper.

Closer by NIN - Covered by Kawehi

DISCLAIMER: If the word FUCK offends you then I suggest you don't watch this video, yo.
I remember the first time I heard this song. I was fresh out of high school, driving with the windows down to my job at Jamba Juice from Waikiki beach. I could feel the sun on my skin from laying out - and I still smelt of salt water. I'm sure I was running late to work (sorry, Malia!). And then this song comes on the radio. I remember pulling over on the side of the street - I've never heard anything like it up to this point. And my initial response was bigger than "I like this song" or "I don't like this song." It was a feeling that took over, a sense of wonder and unfamiliarity.

Paul and I really wanted to change things up - because change is always a good thing. Dare to do something that you'd never think of doing. After receiving Ableton, I thought the best way to learn how the hell to use it was by doing a video. It helped - I love how Ableton gives you endless possibilities to create music. I hope you enjoy this video as much as I enjoyed making it!

Octopod? Copepod?

Ever since I first saw one of these, in the Caribbean, 15 years ago, i have wanted to see one closely.

They look like fish scales and you see them in the water column. They are tiny, about 5mm long. It takes a while to realise that they are not fish scales, but are in fact tiny creatures. I think I remember someone saying they were octopods (?) but cannot find anything about them.

We get them a lot in Lembeh. They are visible one second, as they reflect light, giving them their distinctive metallic blue colour, then they disappear. Just when I get in focus range, they always swim away, with a flick of their tails, Very frustrating.

This week I finally found a dead one! It caught my eye, as it had become attached to a tendril of something on the bottom. Finally i could see and film it's body. even when dead it still has this amazing reflective capability, almost ghost-like.

If you look very closely at the footage, especially when it disappears, you can see it's tiny legs and body.

I hope this will interest others like me, who have always wondered what it is.

So yesterday my power went out the entire day, and it was over 100 degrees so my house turned into a sauna. My camera battery was dead and I couldn't use my computer so I had no photo. On a happier note, I was Vogue Italia's photo of the day!! I was really excited to see my photo big on the front page.

Today, a friend and I were driving to an abandoned house when we saw this plane in a field surrounded by abandoned barns. The weird things we find in rural Illinois... I had a smoke bomb, so I used it in this. We ended up not going to the abandoned house since we were running low on time. This photo is huge, it's like 12,000 x 8,500px, and I had to crop parts off because I looked too small haha. I would definitely suggest that you view it large on black.

I leave for my trip in 2 days!!
