For the month of October, I'll be in Paris in a residency at Entreprise Culturelle. During my stay I'll be exhibiting at the SERENDIP. LAB FESTIVAL in the group show, Crack Dirompenti Fumetti, featuring artists who have exhibited at the legendary comics festival over the past ten years.

The SERENDIP.LAB FESTIVAL spans 4 buildings.

We'll be in the Bloc.

 

crack@serendip Crack n'est pas qu'un festival de Bande Dessinée indépendant c'est aussi une expérience et un engagement, pour repenser un événement comme une ligne politique où artistes et public se retrouvent, créant de nouvelles stratégies de production artistique, et de relations sociales." La salle d'exposition du Bloc sera investie avec les œuvres des artistes internationaux qui participent chaque année et forment ainsi le réseau vivant de cette immense communauté créative.

20/20/20 Southampton Arts Killer Filmmaking Program

One of eighteen filmmakers chosen for the inaugural fully funded 20/20/20 digital filmmaking program directed by Christine Vachon, in a packed 20 days I attended master classes, crewed on and created 18 films while preparing for the big film shoot of the principal storyline of Architecture of an Atom in Lyon, France.

Southampton Arts with generous funding from Dorothy Lichentenstein co-produced the film, Old Man Carmentine (Southampton, Brooklyn, Washington Heights and the Infinite Whistle), which is part of my current transmedia story, Architecture of an Atom.

This film is part of the Infinite Whistle series while also revealing a back-story of one of the main characters from the principal storyline of Architecture of an Atom, played by yours truly.

This summer was intense.

Brooklyn, Washington Heights & the Infinite Whistle

In response to the play, Barbarous Nights' Buster Keaton character, Lichens and Juliacks have devised a 1920's sound score installation that involves the participation of the audience to record a soundscape to Juliacks' 2012 film "Washington Heights and the Infinite Whistle," starring Sam Creely as the Infinite Whistle, shot with 8mm, co-produced by Sam Creely and Tony Groutsis. This film takes place on a rooftop on the very upper west side of Manhattan. The wanderers on this precipice strive to obliterate the thing that drives them.

The masked character-the Infinite Whistle acts as a magnetic queen bee-the center for milk, honey and big apples. More info on the play, and tickets to see Barbarous Nights and this performance are here: barbarousnights.net

Architecture of an Atom: The Infinite Whistle Series
A performative cinematic contemporary art opera
by JULIACKS


Entering a fictional realm, one confronts the limits of control as a viewer and participant in the subjective and inaccurate social experiment that is the Infinite Whistle series. You – an adult child, move into an abandoned pool. You – a stateless person, are given a real, important document and will only be allowed inside for one act out of three. There will be tasks, open mouths, wide eyes. You will have the choice of participating in creating a score for the performance. There will be dissonance and harmony. There might be pleasure.

This performance features a live sound score by Gaerra (Malmö), & Family Underground (Copenhagen) and the audience. Amager Whistle features Malmö-based cartoonist Kolbeinn Karlsson and was filmed by visual the Mikael Lindahl, Malmö. Pre-recorded music by MAG (Gothenburg), Manuel Cascone (Italy), the musicians Roy Boswell, Sanna Lehto, Julian Parker, Emilia Pennanen, and Jone Takamäki (Finland). The performance is a part of the exhibition THE SUPERSURREALISM. The performance is presented at the Loading Dock 20 January at 6, 7 and 8 pm. Limited seating - book your tickets now: info.malmo@modernamuseet.se

April 29, Stockholm, Sweden

The Serieteket at the Kulturhuset, Juliacks and Isabella Rodriguez of Nattlek Productions team up to bring you the premier of Gotland and the Infinite Whistle at the International Stockholm Comics Festival.

Graphics, imaginary worlds and situations collide in this screening with films by comics and contemporary artists Dunja Jankovic, Joakim Ojanen, Peter Burr, Peter Larsson, Jim Duesing and Lilli Carre.

Gotland and the Infinite Whistle is the culmination of the film shot last summer at Almedalen Week in Gotland that was supported by the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom, FilmCentrum Stockholm, FilmProduktions Gotland, and Nattlek Film Productions. The sound score was recorded in a live performance with MAG, the audience and Juliacks at an event produced by GRRRNDZERO in Lyon, France on February 10th.

Starring Josefin Alfredson Agnestig this film shows the de-evolution of the fantasy group mind in and around the totem-The Infinite Whistle.

This is the first film completed in this series of films globally 'shot' that make up the project of Architecture of an Atom.

Sikoryak and Matthew Thurber, presented in a framework suggested by Josef Franz van Goez’s Lenardo und Blandine, an 18th century German melodrama that was visually transcribed to create — the first graphic novel?

June 12: Moving Through Performance at Performance Studies International Conference www.psi16.com as part of Graduate Student Cabaret. In Toronto!

SCHEDULE

"We have assembled a roster of student artists who utilize the Cabaret format in its widest sense: a performance salon placing visual art, dance, poetry, video, audio, puppetry, performance, and theater together in front of an audience, in segments ranging from 30 seconds to ten minutes. We use the cabaret form to test the boundaries between theory and practice, to engage with the conference theme Performing Publics, and to stage performances that interrogate the notions of performance, studies, and the international."

October 31st: Candles n' Conversations

With the permission of the cemetery director, Ari Pipatti, and with the help of my Finnish friend Saara Ratilainen we respected the changing of the seasons and the ones that have passed.

In the midst of the All Saints Day holiday tradition of people bringing candles to the graves of relatives, I provided the means to make hand sculpted candles out of soft wax for free as a way to start a conversation.

I learned about how cemetery visitors felt and what the holiday means to people who go to the cemetery and sometimes who they were remembering.

October 4th: Swell play reading in Lappland.

Fellow Fulbrighters and I traveled to Kilpisjarvi in Finland. There, we found a beautiful barren landscape.

I have just finished the script for the play, "Swell." and we did a reading of it in this amazing smoke hut.

Each person came to the hut by themselves and took a potato out of my hat. On the potato was a picture of the character that they would read. I then told them about their character, and told them to think of a word or a sound that they associated with loss.

The reading of the play was similar to a passover Seder where we would read the script, but also take breaks to talk about the sounds/words of loss that they thought of, and also to make toasts to death, to life, to them, to the fire, and to the unconscious.

This preliminary reading is being developed into a performance for the Night of Live Art at the Theater Academy in Finland December 2nd-4th and in Pori, Finland on December 5th.

October 1st: Musical and live drawing performance at a hospice in Helsinki.

Fellow Fulbrighter-Melanie Lahti and I performed at a Hospice where she played Bach on the clarinet and I drew live with an overhead projector. The main point was to not provoke or disturb the patients and provide a pleasant experience.

This experience taught me that the Finnish/English language barrier should be addressed as the goals of the performance may not be achieved without linguistic understanding.

When you die, how do you want your body to be treated?

Would you ever invent a death ritual?

Do you believe in Ghosts, Spirits, Angels, God?

How do you respond to flesh? Blood? Sickness? Fluids?

Have you ever killed something? A machine? A person? An animal?

How will Finnish people react when encountering death or grief?

Do you believe in the spectrum of the unconscious being analogous to the spectrum of light?

How do you react to someone you know having died or dying?

How do you want to die?

Do you believe in fairytales, myths, the sun, the infinite universe?

What kind of funeral do you want?

Silence, solitude, what senses, what social settings are appropriate when respecting the dead in Finland?

June 16th-July 18th: F.I.N.E. Artist Residency at the Children's Museum in Pittsburgh with Amy Johnson. We created the interactive installation, The Library of Imagined Memories where
participants provoked their imaginations and resurrected their memories through donning creativity jackets and magic spectacles,
painting secret images that only they could see, recording memories with a crystal ball of the past and making a time capsule out of an abandoned book for the library collection. We investigated the creative act of imagining and remembering.
