"Through drawing and painting I am focusing on themes of the human body, sexual desire, the conscious and the unconscious mind. I am interested in exposing social constructs that penetrate our intimate realm.

"Is that one sky?:
Blissfully lucid blue,
into which ever purer clouds throng,
and under it all white in endless changes,
and over it that huge, thin-spun grey,
pulsing warmly as on red underpaint,
and over everything this silent radiance
of a setting sun."

I want to have a yellow center like a soft boiled egg and hyperlink my thoughts, like a junction or a crossword puzzle, all as an associative nonlinear method to an ongoing process. Any point will be a good start. We live inside ourself, and see upside down, then the brain turns it around for us. absorbing information from the environment, it's not merely a picture of the world as it falls on the retina. but rather an interpretation system, using all prior knowledges acquired to find meanings, digesting it to something new that will feed itself once more and turn into attempts at understanding.Find out more »
His work takes the form of albums, short films, opera, installations and live free improvisation using voice, computer or his self-made electronic instrument The Pineapple. Sound had always been be of interest —less as a musical end and more as an exploration of material, space, and experimentation — so he entered the highly regarded experimental electronic music program at Mills College where he earned an MFA and learned from such luminaries as Pauline Oliveros, Maggi Payne, John Bischoff, Chris Brown, James Fei and even jazz legend Roscoe Mitchell. Now, Sam has set about to combine image and sound, story and experimentation, emotion and texture through the use of cinematic language and expansive sound exploration. This is manifesting itself in several projects including Sound art, Trans-media opera, Feature film writing, Installation art, and Video art.Find out more »
