As part of the Cypress Village Tunnel Art WalkVCR and WOAH teamed up with Antigua Coffee House to present TUNNEL VISION, a one-night audiovisual event set within and inspired by the underground. Set-up along the overground periphery and below within a former pedestrian passageway in Cypress Park, TUNNEL VISION aimed to be a temporary portal inducing expanded states of perception. Pooling tastes for audiovisual elements typically limited to LA’s ‘undergrounds,’ TUNNEL VISION united hyphenated-genre-eluding music, interactive light optics, and the in-between, to deliver a hypnotic experience of sight and sound, space and perception.

vision | NU SPEED

As part of Double Vision, WOAH presents NU SPEED.

Forevermin // NU SPEED

Forevermin // NU SPEED

Delving into various media, Nu Speed‘s projects conjure transcendent sonic spaces and dark reveries.  With an interest in anagrams, puns, fractals, and nominative determinism, Nu Speed employs literary devices and a taste for the uncanny to expose hidden synchronicities in supernatural patterns and wearable novelties.  The delicate, obsessive contours of her prints and videos render a fractured atlas where the alien, natural, and phenomenal collide into one infinite plane.

69 Pins // NU SPEED

’69’ Pins from NU SPEED for sale at SPACE Mall.

While Nu Speed‘s digital studies reveal the holograms of lenticular photographs––leaving traces of transdimensional ghosts in their path––the ingenuity of her handcrafted ’69’ baby pins lies in their perfect artistry of absurdity.  The eerie drone of her soundtracks evoke hypnotic chase scenes, while her literary pieces under Vitus Hearn offer readers clever sexual advisement, lending word-foreplay so well-played puns morph into rhythmic haiku.

A conundrum of creativity and talent extremity, Nu Speed continues to search for the perfect synthesis to unite her extrasolar media projects.  Pick-up Nu Speed‘s nu-est novel items alongside Rossana Diaz at the SPACE Mall booth in the daylight, and keep watch as her latest video manifestations light up the dark this Saturday 7/27 1PM-12AM at Double Vision.

WOAH at Los Angeles Road Concerts – Mulholland Dérive

We Open Art Houses artists, Mookyung Sohn, Nu Speed, and Sharsten Plenge contributed in a project atop Mullholand Drive, overlooking  Los Angeles this past December 9, 2012.

The project was part of Los Angeles Road Concerts, an artist run series conceived by LA based artist, Stephen van Dyck. Annual artistic interventions take place on selected boulevards throughout the city.

On the corner of Mullholand Drive and Pyramid Place,  WOAH presented “Immersion Pyramid” – a shrine, temple, and oasis for the curious passerby.

This was our first manifestation as WOAH and hope that future directions, collaborations, and participation can be possible in the near future!, for now, some documentation!:
