Hello trees…how are you?

I returned to Texas in February 2018 to document the latest offering from interactive design company Daily tous les jours – a walking serenade inspired by the gorgeous live oak trees at Discovery Green in Houston, Texas.  Accompanied by filmmaker and artist Guillermina Zabala we explored and documented the inaugural installation of Hello Trees, an interactive sculpture that encouraged visitors to send their messages to nature. By speaking into either end of the installation your voice was transformed into both light and eventually a classical piano abstraction – a poetic meeting of nature, technology and music. We hope you enjoy this creative documentation – an ode to Hello Trees.

On The Cities Lips LIVE at BRICK!

As I’m sifting and sorting through photos, video, audio of my time in Texas (I’m working on an adventure blog but there’s a LOT to process…) I thought I’d post a little teaser from the Soiro Bizarro at BRICK during Contemporary Art Month. Thanks to the BRICK team (esp MJ!), CAM, Elizabeth, The Walley’s/dreambored band, Jess & Jeff from hyperbubble, Amy Torok, Keith Seacrest and Dustin Reichert for the collective effort in making this a truly surreal and beautiful night!
