From January 2014 until January 2019initiated a monthly AV event called Ab Uno Pluribus.
For the first three years, it was held in The Three Jewels when their center was on 4th Avenue in the east village and it was then held at NYU studio of Music and Computing.I co-produced this event with composer Wolfgang Von Stuermer. Wolfgang curated the musicians while I curated the VJs. We named it Ab Uno Pluribus (from one to many) as we choose generally three musicians and the first play independently and they then perform together.

Audio plays when you are close to these drawings, a poem is whispered
Silent barn, three month projection installation, 2015: audio generated braille machine. Braille says a full page narration from kids in Nicaraguan. When approaching the projection, each stair generates another paragraph
Audio- Generated braille light machine: ““I’m not telling you what to do, but you have to do it.”
Participants can listen using earphones to a track I created of narrated verse, music and conversations whose frequency and amplitude are generating the visuals on two walls (walls #1,#2)
When participants talk into one of the provided microphones, the impact of their voice is projected on wall #2 altering the visuals. And their voice is recorded added to the audio track, hence generating new visuals on wall #1
Every sound leaves a mark, which is eventually altered and distorted by new imagery and new voices have added.
Screening of my documentary in progress “Far Away: Poetry in Nicaragua“.

“Far Away” is a multi-platform (film, web, fine art, interactive installations) project on poetry in Nicaragua Background: I am of Nicaraguan descent and I conceived of “far away“ when first visiting relatives there in Nov. 2013 and again in Nov. 2015. I returned in February 2018.
