After talks, @udonpapi will be on the decks for EMBODIED KNOWLEDGE DANCE PARTY. —
The event is simple: Show up, grab a bev, listen to some 5 minute talks, mingle, dance party. Bring your boo, bring your favorite relative, your emotional-support dog– bring anyone you wish for a night of shared learning to FAMILY ROOM. Just be ready for some hot and heavy ~*knowledge*~!
There will be 10-12 speakers nominated by members of THE FAMILY to give 5 minute talks on anything they desire, just as long as they can throw down some expert knowledge on it. It might be like a TED talk on how we can use technology mindfully, it might be a how-to guide to identify poisonous plants. Who’s to say?
Event is FREE.
Feel free to bring your own bevs and snacks.
There will be (seltzer, beer, wine) beverages for purchase/ suggested donation! Money goes directly to paying our speakers + DJs + organizers.
Accessibility: The studio is located on the right side of the loading dock, suite 101. Regretfully, the studio is only accessible up half a flight of stairs due to some backwards renovations. If you have any access requests, feel free to contact Yo-Yo at firstname.lastname@example.org.
See you tonight!
What's in the water you ask? Well, that depends. If you find yourself in the the Matsu archipelago off the coast of China in the beginning of summer on a dark cloudy night with the tide coming in, chances are you will catch a glimpse of Noctiluca scintillans, a bioluminescent dinoflagellate that lives in our oceans. Our work-in-progress installation about this, dubbed the same name as the Matsu natives call the phenomenon- Blue Tears– is an immersive film installation that blurs the lines between the ecological and the magical. We're currently seeking funding to finish the project and are looking for spaces to host it. Tell your friends who like sparkly things that we should talk. - YYL. #earthday#thefamily ...
Coachella!! This week in FAMILY history: “The year was 2016. The artist was Joey Bada$$. The stage was... the main one.
A few days before the show we arrived in LA to rehearse. Not knowing if Joey was going to stick to the setlist (this is Brooklyn hip-hop you better believe it’s all live) we had to prepare visuals for anything. Even the iconic moment when he yells “got dragon balls like my name was Vegeta” and we surprised him by throwing up a Vegeta on one of the biggest festival stages in America (seen in picture 3). Or how on the night of Prince's passing we put together a quick clip in his honor, then weekend 2 Joey surprised us all by playing Prince's 1999 (last picture). I even remember Joey playing us an unreleased song called “Devastated” that he was considering performing. It was stuck in our head for weeks and later went on to become a Platinum selling single. #OMWtogreatness
It was my first VJ gig and definitely wasn’t my last as we travelled the world performing live stage visuals with him for the next 2 years.” -SD. ...
The birthday trifecta! Happy Birthday to DP extraordinaire and VR guru @sperlingsilver who captures the world’s beauty like no one else. We’ve had the privilege of seeing this wizard capture massive photogrammetry models of buildings, all the way down to super tiny microscopic footage of glowing dinoflagellates (pictured here in Taiwan). Send some birthday love to the best in the game and if you don’t follow his account you’re a darn fool. GANBEI!!!! -SD ...
Happiest of birthdays to the one and only $teve aka lil stove dobol aka daMuffindog. I’m not gonna get too cheesy on this Instagram (btw I can’t believe you got @family as our handle still) but I knew I could call you BROTHA (Frank Moody voice) the moment we became one VJ consciousness playing for Joey Bada$$ on main stage Coachella. I gotta say, from every front-of-house imaginable, to the house of Carroll st, to our office in Clinton Hill, you have ALWAYS made space for me and countless of other artists just wanting to make something bigger than themselves. So. Thank you. For all that you do and are. Alright, alright, alright, now someone get this birthday boy to KogiTown this year! —YYL ...
It’s @itsyosquared birthday today! Let’s all wish this amazing artist a very happy birthday 🎂 🎉 🎈 🎁 Her work often evaluates human perception and connection as a vehicle for self-knowledge. You can check it out at www.yoyolin.com and at www.thefamily.tv ...
Have you seen the new Childism video? Peep @kian.brownfield 's profile for the link and get the song stuck in your head ...
Not many people have seen them, but we have a few projects that unofficially started THE FAMILY.
So let’s go into the vault because one of which was released 5 years ago today in collaboration with the artist formerly known as Tree. And to quote @noisey , “Tree starts off looking like Luke Skywalker before disrobing a la Channing Tatum in Magic Mike.” This is the music video for Stuck Down the Wrong Rabbit Hole by Tree ft. Beat Culture & Lena Kuhn.

Using photogrammetry you can 3D scan the physical world to create a perfect digital archive. We did this for our @manifest.live installation, but it should be something that every artist considers. -SD ...
That's a wrap on 2018 so let's take a peak into whats to come in this new year?
This is THE 757. A documentary series on the area code that forged some of the most influential champions of all time.
