Film Synopsis

In this video, Panzarino performs Barbra Streisand’s version of “Memory”, the signature show tune from the musical “Cats.” Panzarino’s voice is processed by “The Nipulator 2.0”, a custom-built, wireless electronic bra created by the artist that uses hardware potentiometers (or knobs), a hacked DJ Hero microcontroller, and a Max/MSP software patch.  The left "nipple" of the bra manipulates the frequency of her voice in real-time, while the right "nipple" adds reverb. In the background, we see VHS footage shot by Panzarino from the World Trade Center observation deck in October 2000.

Film Synopsis

Hunks is an animated reaction to bullish male stereotypes in rock culture. When asked to create a short for a rock group, the filmmakers thought about the grueling institution of male posturing in the rock world and how difficult and demeaning it can be to insist that men live up to the macho, scumbag ideal of rock music culture. The animation is hand drawn, scanned and printed as puppets, then captured and animated under the camera, then finished and edited digitally.
