I met Carl Kozlowski during my adventures with the Fireside Troupe in LA. He’s one of the founders of Radio Titans, a podcast radio station featuring a mixture of music, talk, comedy, and story. After a recent Kickstarter campaign the station was able to get a great studio in Downtown.
Before I moved back to Orange County I put up an art installation there called, “LA 2 Ways”. Los Angeles. Lorna Alkana. Excellent. I should prob upload some sort of visual tour of the installation. I have the photos. We’ll see. I need to establish a balance between online and IRL art exhibition. It’s better IRL. [Note: This is the first and second time I’ve used “IRL”. I’m a true social mediator now, right?]
The following image depicts a manipulated view from the station’s recording studio. Pretty sweet. I love windows. and views. and windows with views. I used the Fragment Application to play around with shape. I feel like I’ve either just scratched the surface of the app’s potential, or I’ve already used the techniques I like too much to the extent that my exploration has peaked. Quite the spot.
I made an art GIF that explores the idea of the title of this post. [Side note: I learned how to tween. F-ing finally. I def haven’t mastered it, but I’ve overcome an initial block, for sure.]
Image caption (since I’m working on text integration one way or another):
If I could crumple LA into a ball, I would. I’m mostly interested to see what it would look like once uncrumpled and what it would feel like to hold.
Here are the photos I used for the above GIF. All are manipulated with the Fragment App.
