Corridor (Spring 05)
A sonic, site specific, installation, co-conceived and produced with composer Barry Threw. Sound is fed from other sites on location, processed spectrally, and then diffused throughout the space through an array of plastic bottles.

Third Floor : Designed Obsolescence (Spring 05)
An art show set in an alternative space. The third floor of an abandoned Office building in Lubbock Texas was "inhabited" by myself and five other collaborators. The space was the main source of our artistic materials.

I also performed a duet playing hand built electronic circuits and circuit bent battery powered toys with fellow collaborator Szu Han Ho on violin. The opening night was March 4th 2005. 3rd floor was reviewed by Susan Platt and is published in the summer issue of
