Paul Abacus had his transformation in Ginza where the implications of all those screens became instantaneously evident. He saw the illuminated future, backlit with teriyaki in his left hand. Paul is the St. Teresa of The Screen Age, perforated by pixels. Since getting booted from Oxford, where he nearly doctored in National Borders and Synesthesia, Paul has spent meaningful time as an organ grinder, aquarium monger, and national park ranger. Nowadays he speaks at global institutions, elementary schools, or wherever he is invited.
Paul has collaborated with Lars Jan and the Early Morning Opera group for the past few years. They have designed and performed presentations at REDCAT and EMPAC, and soon the New Frontier program at Sundance, in January 2012.
