First there was Goathelper Vol. 1 at the Show Cave in Los Angeles, CA - summer 2010
Goathelper Vol. 1 was a video screening curated by Ben Bigelow and Michael Mallis, with live performances by Michael Pisano, Jack Meade, Laura Miller, Sal Farina, and myself. As "Helpers," the performers interacted with the audience and Oreo, a live pygmy goat in the gallery space, who was the "source" of the video projections.
And then there was Goat Helper Industries vs Austra at the VIA Music and New Media Festival in Pittsburgh, PA - fall 2011
Goathelper lives again in video projections by the three Michaels, mixed live during Austras set at VIA.
My part in this madness was makeup, costume design, and performance.
Costume made from artificial furs, cardboard, spray-paint, wire structures, aluminum cans
