Senator Scott Wiener and Joseph Abbati (curator) will host an exhibit in his office at the San Francisco California State Building (455 Golden Gate Ave) to celebrate Pride. The theme of this exhibit is “Queerky”, for all that is queer and quirky within the LGBTQ community. The exhibit will be up the month of June. A reception will be held on Pride day (Sunday, June 24, 2018) overlooking the Civic Center plaza festivities.

This is a work in progress where I am using multi-screens for my “Transformetions” series.
Trans is a video exploring other personas morphed to myself. These “transformetions” were collected originally in Snapchat from posts on Instagram (@jabbati). It’s a study of augmenting my reality with the outside world and creating a new narrative by rendering myself new to the world.
