Enter the Macy Rodman Multiverse through browser-based virtual reality. Part immersive music video, part commentary on our consumption of social media personalities, “Endless Kindness” is a collaboration with the Brooklyn-based artist that explores the relationship between fan and idol. The player’s gaze controls the trajectory of their experience through three distinct virtual planes.

Release
by National Sawdust in January 2018

An operatic short film by directed for New York and Shanghai-based composer Du Yun’s 2017 Pulitzer-winning opera Angel’s Bone, with libretto by Royce Vavrek.

The short film approaches the themes of the original opera with a psychological, inward lens, separate and in parallel with the original opera, described by the Pulitzer jury as a bold work “that integrates vocal and instrumental elements and a wide range of styles into a harrowing allegory for human trafficking in the modern world.”

The film premiered on I Care if You Listen in January 2018, and stills of the film were shown at the Shenzhen Architecture Biennale.
