Albert Cadabra vs. Rubik
Two BIG things I've been up to in one tiny video!
This one minute video is made with footage filmed for a podcast series on local burlesque performers. Featured here, the magical hands of Albert Cadabra.
I was recently invited to help curate 1800 Frames, an exhibition of 1 minute videos for a great gallery called CWOW in NJ. It was so inspiring to see all these artists' work that I decided to make my own 1800 frames video in honor of them.
