Video and Lighting for Sarah Jaffe at Granada Dallas 2014

Working with Sarah Jaffe for a second time was great , this time we added a fresh perspective to a long time venue The Granada in Dallas . Read the review from the show HERE.

"What set this night apart from her many sold-out shows around town were the correlating videos. Almost every song had its own digital montage splashed across the screens, making the evening feel more like an art installation than the usual concert. While some were simplistic scenes from nature or shapes, others were a sort of remix from the original music videos. Most notable was the chopped-up version of “Glorified High,” featuring 11-year-old Emily Hoffman break-dancing and moon-walking to the fuzzy, electronic track.

Private Studio Tour and Magic Show

It has been a pleasure inviting guests over to my personal studio and performing close up parlor magic . Check out a review of my first studio tour HERE .

"Ruiz builds his own props and sets. An artist and tinkerer from an early age, he has a limitless capacity for innovation. He's done lighting for Erika Badu, had extensive success in video, sculpture and two-dimensional art, and now he's included himself in the execution of those merged media through a performative routine of classic sleight-of-hand. And while that may seem an unconventional path, it's extremely artful and unified, making the show a stylish extension of his talents." Dallas Observer Blogs . Special thanks to Jamie Laughlin for visiting the studio and the review.

Stage Lighting and Video Work from 2013

2013 was a great year for my video and Lighting work . I was fortunate enough to work with Sarah Jaffe at Dallas City Performance Hall as her lighting and video designer. I also designed for the band Ishi and had many great shows including shows at the Perot Museum and The Granada in Dallas. Lighting up the Art Con stage this year gave me a great chance to experiment and cut loose. This year I also worked with fashion designer Yasmina Johnson for her fashion show at Kirk Hopper Fine Art. And once a month I am the set and lighting designer for The Ruby Revue Burlesque Show. Hope you enjoy the photos most of them are marked with the appropriate photographer appologies to those that didn't . Special thanks to photographers Dylan Hollingsworth , Karlos X. Ramos, Hal Samples and Jarrod Fresquez for being there to capture the action.
