I imagine Nature, which includes hearts of loved ones, as my religi♾️n. “And Also With You” is a 2017 family portrait of house plants I live(d) with, and is the poster representing the feminine first chapter of a movie I made called “Talkie Pharmakon.” An 11x17 version is available now at PUSH PROJECTS. There’s a varnish, light play layer - real trickster to photograph.

“The only thing more important than being thankful for the people in your life is being proactive about the material possessions you want.” So, without further delay, BEHOLD! Highly covetable objects whose only swing at function is joy!…


For our premiere at The Hole Gallery in June, Debbie and I asked three plushie specialists to bring 20 VIP music video characters to analog life. Coming first for Mattel - Followed by USA Cartoon Express - and if we have time before death, The Whitney.


On Saturdays in the early 80’s, my dad would to wake me up before sunrise. I’d catch the end of the farm report, and then The Wuzzles, followed by Rainbow Brite.

Hello it’s me, Fun,


Send a Message.

 

Need a bio about loved ones, making things, creation—fabricating a tropical slot machine playhouse music video focusing on themes of joy, adventure, and collaborative practice in lieu of making a human baby:


Grant Worth, an aging, up-and-coming music video director was approached by his dearest original pal, a new, former DIY-Electroclash-PopStar-Turned-Healer artist, Dancorcism by Debbie Attias, who wanted a music video that would stand out from the usual tropes in the industry. In lieu of the narrative-driven video, completed for and with money in a few short weeks, the artist wanted to create something centered around “LOL-ing in the sun.” It would take a year to build, in Grant’s free time. 


Pros:

  0. Flexibility: Unlike having a baby, creating a music video allows for flexibility in terms of time and resources.

  0. Cost-effective: Creating a music video is generally less expensive than having a baby, which can be a significant consideration for artists with limited financial resources.


Cons:

  0. Short-lived success: The success of a music video is often short-lived, and the video may not have the same long-term impact as producing a human child.

  0. No legacy: Unlike having a baby, creating a music video will most likely sit in a lonely, lost YouTube stream for eternity and does not provide a continuation of one's family line.

  0. Limited personal growth: While creating a music video can be a creative outlet, it may not provide the same level of personal growth and development as raising a child.

  0. Risk of failure: There is always a risk that a grown baby may not be successful, which can be discouraging for parents and restrict their potential for life from getting very fancy

 

They shot on location on a remote island in Panama after celebrating questionably-post-pandemic New Year's Eve. The bright colors and natural beauty would serve as the perfect backdrop for the video's playful tone. The final product was a music-ish video unlike anything else in the industry, featuring vibrant colors, energetic dance routines, and catchy music that left viewers wanting more or less.


Access/orized Imagination, Appropriative Ingenuity, Ambient Insights, Artistic Immiseration, Alchemic Incipiency. Addicted to the unconscious slot machine collective. Mad-lib nostalgia dependency and word salad diet fads. Regardless of form, there’s little doubt Helium Miracle Attias Worth would tap dance across the cruel face of humanity.


The video quickly went viral, earning millions of views and attracting widespread attention from music fans, art critics, and digital insiders alike.


Welcome to the party,


Grant Worth Most

Often ambient, occasionally active sonic story time! Sounds like a bargain doesn’t it? “Sail Away - Return Full Price” is the new composition by GTL - Grant, Tim, and Laura Worth. Last Summer, on a nearly sinking sailboat off the coast of Maine, we simultaneously harvested sounds and celebrated our parents’ 25th wedding anniversary. Together back on dry land, Tim knobbed the synth, Laura cooed her pipes, and Grant drove the laptop. Mixed and Mastered by Jeremiah Glazer. Come. Sail Away - It’s Free?! It must be GOOD! #GigaTunaLobsters

UPDATE! You guessed it. I’m in a band now.


Tim clocked 40 rounds the sun during deep COVID, so the following year we celebrated 40/41 on the edge of Yellowstone in Montana. Tim and Laura roadtripped with a modular synth snuggled in the back seat. We immediately rearranged all the furniture and made the living room our recording studio. We captured the park’s Earth sounds and incredible megafauna living their lives. We chose samples and fed them into the synth. From Tim’s hour long performance, we created more samples, manipulated and sequenced them into this track. Thermal Events Are Neither Trash Cans Nor Wishing Wells. NJOY.

How many days were you NOT ready, willing, and able to work?


If I listen to the loud voice, it strikes me as privileged and miserably self centered to work under the assumption that exploring personal relationships is somehow universally relatable. Sophomore year of college, I had a traumatic experience during the class, "Existential Imagination" when I had to give a book review in front of everyone. My inability to articulate my inability to relate to a philosophical perspective uninspired by nature's details and mystery - discontent with the pauses between unexpected, unplanned human joy - uninterested in inspecting the cobwebs of life and the other beings we encounter along the way - rendered me speechless and statue frozen. All eyes on me. 


Recently, I have no trouble relating to that Imagination. I know I'm not alone in hoping that when I wake up tomorrow, heart throbs I once had will have been magically reignited, or rather... worth the clicks on the clock. 


In February, I spent two weeks with my brother creating sound for Chapter Five of a long term video project I'm somewhere near the middle of - "Approaching Centroid" was the title of the show I had scheduled for June. If left unfinished, the time Tim and I spent together would have been enough. 


"HomoMuseical" takes a more personal turn, admiring the cat's cradle of one specific human relationship. Johan Huizinga's study of play in culture and the etymology of the word frame this chapter.


How many days were you NOT ready, willing, and able to work?


Play is Freedom!


Presented here is "Chapter 5 - HomoMuseical" on its own, as well as Chapters One though Five together at last. Please enjoy!
