My primary focus in art at this time is working in digital video collage, especially music videos. I use a combination of my own footage, found materials from Creative Commons and the public domain, and digital worlds and computer art to weave new queer realities. My video work has been shown at ASI Art Gallery and Artists’ Television Access in San Francisco and at LUDWIG in Berlin.
Vulpiano Records was launched in November 2009 by synth musician Marilyn Roxie. Initially created as a place to house unsigned and independent artists Roxie had gotten to know from connecting with friends on Last.fm and submissions to their music blog A Future in Noise. These artists got on board with Roxie’s vision of a carefully curated selection of legally free digital music. The music is licensed under Creative Commons to encourage sharing of this fabulous music with friends and through blogs and podcasts. Some artists choose to offer pay-what-you-want or limited physical release copies in addition to the digital release. In June 2011, Solange Gularte of Natural Snow Buildings designed a logo of a fox curled up (one eye shut, one watchful eye open) for the netlabel.
Vulpiano Records is now available in its entirety on Internet Archive and a selection of 256kbps+ releases is available on Free Music Archive. We are proudly participating with special releases for Netlabel Day on July 14th, 2017.
I maintain sex-positive writer and educator Carol Queen’s website (carolqueen.com). I set up affiliate links and banners, and add links to upcoming events as well as previous articles and videos from websites past and present to provide a full view of Queen’s contributions to sex education and activist discourse.
Small Press SF Poets
In this project, from fall 2016 through spring 2017, I photographed the Small Press San Francisco Poets 1969-2004 J. David Frankel Collection for Paula Levine’s forthcoming San Francisco Public Library exhibition. The collection is comprised of poetry books, literary magazines, and university press works. I utilized Google Sites, Google Sheets, Awesome-Table, and Dropbox to upload photos, display the collection in catalog form and make it searchable by the public, and perform data entry to describe works in terms of title, author, date, publisher, location, and other fields.
You can check out the collection (in-progress) here:
