This will probably be one of the most hipster moments in my life.
I don’t consider myself skilled in photography, but I do like playing with cameras. I’ve posted photos of adventures on several social networking and photo websites and the most popular up to date has been the collaborative series with Kai. Most, if not all of those pictures are credited to Kai’s skills behind the lens and I realized some people either forget or dismiss that fact - I’m just the model, not the creator.
Earlier this week, Kai sent me an application that imitates photoshop with simplified tools that you might see in iOS applications. I have never been skilled in photoshop, but I got into Instagram last fall and I love playing with all the filters they have to offer. With the help of this program I’ve started making my own “artistic” interpretations of the photographer.
Additional Note: Kai talked about our collaborative series, currently under the name Kailaboration - Prizm. He said we could use the name “PARKS” for a future installation; Paris Matic + Kai Sutton. I can’t think of any other names, so I’ll go ahead and tag these under Parks Projects.

(20100608 - Sampling Speakers) Wow, look at the date on this video.
Looking at footage from our old Polygamy of Musique series puts a smile on my face, because it’s remnant of a fantasy that we created, shared and lived at one point. Everyone who knew about this believed and supported our DJ project, recieving lots of love and respect from friends. Part of me reverts to these memories and in my mind I have this wild desire to play again, but it’s not the same without my partner. So for now I collect vinyls, just like him.

Me and our trainer, Champ. Thanks to Kai for the photo, now I know what I look like when I’m working out … my arms feel weak today. must build upper body strength.
This moment alone consumes my mind.
Please rub your hands against mine,
warm us up if you would be so kind.
