“Meditation for the Everyman” is a video art project (and meditation) aimed at creating an internal shift in thought and feeling within the participant. With an air of appreciation and positive subconscious messaging, the video gently guides one to feeling good… because feeling good is what it’s all about.
by Warholian’s own Michael Cuffe

WHAT YOU NEED:
Headphones. Laptop. A room to yourself.
HOW TO WATCH:
The viewer is invited to participate in this meditation by finding a quite place to watch this video alone.
For full effect, turn the volume up (don’t worry, nothing will jump out) and enter FULLSCREEN in the video player (the four expanding arrows in the lower right corner of the player screen).
For the “HD EXPERIENCE” turn the lights off making the room entirely dark. With the laptop glowing it’s spectacular luminescence, put your headphones ON.
Relax, enjoy, and “breathe” when the video prompts you to. :)
Meditation for the Everyman was written by Michael Cuffe, paired to the song “Don’t Stop” by Phantogram.

"Digital Watch" installation by Jim Campbell, shot by photographer Michael Cuffe as displayed currently on the second floor of SFMOMA (San Francisco Museum of Modern Art)
American (Chicago, Illinois, 1956)
video installation | monitor, two video cameras, and custom electronics
Digital Watch uses video, electronics, and a watch to explore how communications media influence our perception of time.
Two video cameras are positioned within a gallery: one is trained on an analog pocket watch on display, while the other records visitors’ behavior in the space. The two continuous feeds are fused electronically into a single, beguiling video presented on a large monitor. The round face of the watch occupies most of the rectangular field, while moving images of the visitors fill the marginal spaces around it.
Meanwhile, the use of a digital frame delay in tandem with the real-time video creates a series of still images of the visitors, which pass through a five-second delay before they momentarily appear in the circular field of the watch’s dial. The pacing of the flickering still images is synchronized with the ticking of the watch’s second hand. The juxtaposition underscores the cognitive dissonance between the retrievable, non-linear nature of digital time and the relentless forward motion of its analog counterpart.
