Eyebeam blog

As a resident of Eyebeam, I'm going to be blogging on their site, - you might want to check it out.
My project involves thinking through avatars and virtuality in relation to
pain, wounding, and death - how these may be manifest in virtual worlds
and how they may affect real, physical worlds.

This is compounded by the state of my father, who, we found out today, is
dying, and who has had a difficult and painful relationship with me from
my beginning. I have never been able to 'shake' death, to 'shake' thinking
about death; there are times I feel that I'm in a permanent state of
collapse as a result. So the coincidence of the start of the residency
with my father's state is both unnerving and painful, everything comes
together, falls apart, in the blog.
