What’s on my mind: a revolution of ideas

What is the difference between creating and contributing to positive growth?
Is it enough to achieve without making the world better?
Through artistic creation we can awaken, awaken humanity towards the realization of love and the only remedy.

It will be individual revelation that will be the revolution. It will be individual inner change that will constitute the collective conscious balance. This is how the world will change, and every ailment with it. Not by doing per say, but by being. Remembering who we are and our connection to one another, this is how light overcomes any darkness.

It starts with small changes in the way we think, the way we act, the way we take care of ourselves, the way we eat, the images we consume; which will culminate in an inner growth that our outer experience will mirror.

What is conceived in the eye of the mind gives birth to reality.


Counter culture: The curse of online status

via Hypebeast

“Social media is life really. What’re you going to do without social media? How’re you going to connect with people?” These are the opening lines to Hamish Stephenson’s short film documentary, Counter Culture: The Curse of Online Status.” The documentary explores the exploitation of today’s social media, a subject that is especially relevant given Nike’s accusation of their ex-designers buying fake followers on Instagram to falsely boost their attractiveness as a part of their ongoing legal feud with adidas.

It’s been about a week since the comics I did inside the LA County jail system were first published in the LA Weekly, and I couldn’t be more pleased with the response.  People from all over the world have written to me expressing their support for what I have done and their contempt for inhumane practices for incarcerated peoples everywhere.  I have been in communication with the LA County Sheriff’s department and they have told me that due to these comics they have issued a new policy that all inmates must be given showers within 24 hours of entering the jail.  We…

Becoming Robot: Nam June Paik

Science and technology are my constant sources of inspiration lately in my current work, both musically and choreographically. Exploring the relationship between technology and culture, science and ethics are themes of current relevance.

Nam June Paik was ahead of his time. Considered the “father of video art,” his groundbreaking use of video technology blurred past distinctions between science, fine art, and popular culture to create a new visual language. Paik’s interest in exploring the human condition through the lens of technology and science has created a far-reaching legacy that may be seen in broad recognition of new media art.

I am grateful for Paik’s approach to humanizing technology as it has broadened my perspective on what performance-based art can be and how to use it in my own work.

Nam June Paik ‘s work Becoming Robert is on exhibit at The Asia Society Museum 725 Park Avenue New York, NY until Jan 4th, 2015

Track 1 – Mr Jailer


Mr Jailer – Chinese Bamboo EP

What is the root of our mental captivity and what is our escape plan from the prison of our socially conditioned thinking? Questions I hope to engage the listener in as they have their own internal dialogue.

Ancient Egyptians believed the body to be a prison for the soul, and I do not disagree.
