A long distance music/visual collaboration, utilizing the delay in live streaming as a feedback mechanism. Patrick performed music live, projecting Jordan's live streamed visuals on top of himself.

CUDDLE CHUNK LIVE STREAM - 2020-2021 (ONLINE)
Forged during the pandemic, Cuddle Chunk Collective has served as a streaming venue for experimental queer body and sex positive expression, mainly focusing on video art, but with a future post-pandemic plan of public events and happenings. Along with managing the stream and sourcing the video submissions, we designed all the graphics, including display frames and animated transitions seen above. In addition, Cuddle Chunk (again, our art) supplied the transitions for Folsom Street Fair which was held online that year to a world audience.
