I perform an intertwining trifecta of characters including Pastel Fractal, Conch Shell, and
fDj ȺƉǤ (floppy Disk jockey Ⱥlix Ɖ Ǥraph).

Similarly -but without calling it "performance"- I make interactive sculptural installations and lab/studio research videos by the name Alexander DeGraaf.

Upon these personas, I combine the following seemingly disparate wonders of my universe:
music, obsolete technology, Chicago, seashells (fractals in nature), and bicycling (+ other active lifestyle stuff).

Each persona has their own shtick which may or may not be consistent with the their ever-important mission statement. My characters' mission statements and the mission statements of Chicagoans serve as content or "data" for multimedia experiments and storylines within my practice.

While conducting these experiments and unfolding these storylines, I play with the concepts of authorship and accountability by publishing the works of each character in different ways on different characters' social media pages.

I just recently finished a series of 25 public space performances titled the AnyWhorl Else Around Chicago Tour. I have a log jam of videos of these performances to publish (primarily on Conch Shell's YouTube and Pastel Fractal's Instagram).
