Things keep rolling along with The Love Song of R. Buckminster Fuller. We did some of our best screenings yet recently at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis and the Detroit Institute of Art. We’ll be at the Barbican in London on December 8th, and more shows to come in 2014. Check out the website for more info: www.buckminsterfullerfilm.com

I did a residency recently at the Experimental Media and Performance Art Center (EMPAC) in Troy, NY, and here’s an interview that I did with Ash Bulayev, the Performance curator there.

I premiered a new “live documentary” about fog at the Exploratorium Museum in San Francisco on October 2nd. Cinematographer Andy Black and I have been shooting fog together for many years, so it was exciting to finally see the images up on the big screen. The whole event felt pretty magical—the theater at the new Exploratorium is fantastic, and Brooklyn-based band the Quavers (plus musicians Brendan Canty and Matt Bauder) played a great live soundtrack. A few photos from the premiere are below.

I was a guest on KQED’s talk show, Forum, in conjunction with the screening. Here’s a link to the program.

I’m excited to announce that I’ll be performing two new, short pieces as part of the River to River Festival later this month. The show is June 20th at 9pm on the East River Esplanade, Pier 15.

I’ll be screening two new “live documentary” pieces: Love Letter to the Fog, a meditation on fog, grief, and the sublime in San Francisco, with Brooklyn-based musicians The Quavers; as well as The Biggest-Smallest, a poem about fate and the outer contours of human experience, with NYC band yMusic. The performance is part of a series curated by the wonderful Laurie Anderson.

You can read more about the project on the River to River website. Come check it out if you’re in NYC!

I performed a new, short live piece at the most recent Pop-Up Magazine, which took place on May 20th at the SF Symphony Hall. For people who don’t know about Pop-Up, it’s a wonderful and phenomenally popular live event where a bunch of writers and filmmakers and others do live presentations—the organizers describe it as like a magazine, but live. For this “issue” they teamed up w/ Beck to do an evening about music that featured Beck and others performing songs from his new album (which is really just a book of sheet music). I think this was the only time that Beck’s going to perform any of it.

I just got back from a tour of my program of short films, What We Need is the Impossible!, as part of the Mid-Atlantic Arts Foundation On Screen / In Person event series. We spent ten days traveling around the region from New York to Virginia for screenings, and had a great time.

I wrote a blog post for the foundation about commemorating little-know historical details while in Monmouth, NJ, which is actually where President James Garfield died. You can check out that post here.
