I’m just glad he didn’t try to claim that it was a “hologram.” People passing off Pepper’s ghosts as holograms is pretty common and is one of my pet peeves.


That is pretty cool. But God, do I hate the TikTok affect of the video. This could have been a blog post.

He’s a great artist with an interesting cv that crosses many different mediums. I love his recent exploration of video work–he does a lot on instagram but more recently joined tiktok where his videos really took off. He’s done a lot of instructional videos explaining how he merges newer digital technology with older analog stuff–very useful for makers who want try it out. He also makes lenticular tv enamel pins–they are really cool and available on his site. We used to run in the same social circle in San Francisco many years ago–glad he’s still out there making art and sharing it with the world.
