CD Final Project

For my final project I traveled in to the very depths of my phone's memory card. Needless to say I found exactly what I was looking for. In my freshman year at LACHSA I uploaded to youtube a video of our English 9 teacher Mr. Gary Soerensen. He was bitching out our class and yelling at Jamil. Four years later this class of 2010 that "aggravated [Mr. Soerensen] so much that [he's] seeing red" somehow made it through. I think we turned out just fine.

Individual Works

Valentine's day passed. I made the best valentine's card ever, based off of the last scene in the movie Fight Club.

A fun penguin/Dr. Frankenfurter blend.

Narrative Video.

A commentary and review of the movie Teeth accompanied by stills from the movie. A bit too graphic to be posted online.

Performance Art

I did a German-expressionism inspired painting of Riley Smith for the LACHSA Theatre production of The Visit. During the play my painting was smashed over Ethan's body.

The play centers around the visitation of Claire Zachanassian (played by Sherrell Jackson) who returns to her hometown. Her purpose in returning is to seek revenge on her ex boyfriend Alfred III (played by Riley Smith) who impregnated her and denied any relations with her. Claire offers the town "eine Millarde" (one billion marks) if they kill Alfred III.

The significance of this moment is that Alfred's portrait is smashed over Ethan's character.

Digital Work

Censorship MADNESS! This is about the Marquis De Sade and how he had to deal with censorship during the reign of Napoleon in France. This is a translation of an excerpt of his erotic novel "Justine" in ASL Fingerspelling.

" I’ve come to confess my sins, not commit them anew. the old priest turned her over on his knee... and lifted her skirts high above her hips, exposing the pink flesh, the blushing rosebud...begging to be... plucked. this most ungodly man took a communion wafer, and placed it on the girl's twitching orifice."

Audio Work

I composed the music using my cellphone to record
I then took video from the tea cup ride at Disneyland
And took a few shots of the Blue Bayou Restaurant from the Pirates of the Carribbean boat.

Personal Invention

Inspired by the comic book Transmetropolitan, I want to create the Bowel Disruptor. Yes, the bowel disruptor. It's an amazing concept because it's a non-lethal weapon that people can use, especially people who have serious anger issues or sadistic tendencies towards others. The user would point the gun at a potential victim and they would have an immediate need to go to the bathroom, and if that need is unsatisfied they will have to be forced to shit in their own pants. It's a strangely cathartic way to deal with these feelings in a way that does not harm the general population. Instead, it will just embarrass the victim. Personally for me there is a lot of satisfaction in keeping a victim alive as opposed to simply killing them off. So this invention will serve others the way it serves me.

[UPDATE] - The science behind this fiction
Rapid-fire shockwaves (such as those produced by the supersonic propeller blades of the Republic XF-84H "Thunderscreech" airplane in 1956) can cause nausea, spasms, seizures, and loosening of the bowels. If this technology can be honed into a small gun then the creation of a real life Bowel Disruptor is totally possible.
