Video Art & New Media Consultations & Equipment Sales    


Are you an artist, art gallery, museum, university, or community/public-art program that needs help figuring out the right video or new media equipment for your exhibit?


My goal is to get you the best equipment within your budget!


SALES:

Because I know the the price of video, audio, and new media equipment can be prohibitive for many artists and institutions, I am able to recommend and offer a range of high quality equipment that can work within your budget and exhibition needs.


Depending on the equipment and the venue, discount packages maybe be available for:

  1. Local or state government art programs; temporary or permanent public art projects

  2. School and University Galleries

  3. Museums

  4. Commercial galleries, alternative space and non-profits galleries

  5. Artists (Video Art, New Media Artists, Filmmakers, Performance Artists, Musicians, other visual and time-based arts, etc.)

  6. Art students (valid student ID)

Not sure if you fit one of the categories on the list? Wonder if the equipment you want is eligible for a discount through me?

    Email me and ask!

Please email with a brief summary of your project and what type of information you are looking for. Services from the above list can be provided separately or together. Rates are based on the complexity of the project and the level of my involvement. Additional staff may be sub-contracted and their rates would be discussed ahead of time. Since I'm a professional artist, I may have to turn down some projects based on my own exhibition schedule, but please contact me regardless.

FAQ


Q: Do you have a product list and prices of what you have available?

A: Short answer, no.

If you have specific products in mind, even high end options that might be outside your budget, contact me and I'll provide a quote.

If you don't have a specific product in mind, contact me for a consultation and equipment suggestions.

Not all items can be discounted, but I might be able to get you a higher quality item within your original budget range. Can't hurt to ask, right?


Q: I'll be exhibiting in a school/local government art space, can I qualify for the educational/government discount?

A: No, the school or government agency would need to be the one purchasing the equipment for your exhibit: they would qualify for those specialized discounts. I can provide you with quotes for the equipment with the educational or government discounts, but the organization would need to contact me directly to purchase the items for their institution.


Q: Do you offer warranties and service?

A: At this time, all warranties and service contracts need to be registered through the manufacture or a third party company.


Q: Where are you based? Will you travel for site visits? Where do you ship?

A: I'm currently based in Massachusetts.

I will travel for site visits or projects, but the cost of travel and lodging will be added to the consultation fee.

I am currently only selling & shipping within the U.S. If you are outside the U.S., please contact me and I can look into expanding my operations.


Q: Do you have references? What kinds of organizations have you worked with?

A: I have organized all the installation and equipment needs for my projects and I have also advised other artists and organizations.
