The Tidal Flow of Yes & No

1. TITLE – The Tidal Flow of Yes & No

2. MEDIUM – Terry Cloth, Vinyl, Chain-link Fence, Polyester / Spandex Blend.

3. PRICE – $600

4. Flags Context – Imagine each life experience as a pool. Jump in, swim around a bit & get out! The pool, serving as a metaphor to illustrate and elaborate on the challenges and complexities of growing up, allows Zegel to speak candidly and intimately about life. Informed by regular visits to public pools, an interest in mid-century architecture & a passion for skateboarding, the idea of a swimming pool allows the artist to compartmentalize life; one pool at a time.

Frames from Summertime

Captured on film, developed with chemicals, stored on hard drives, archived on the blog…these are frames from Summertime 2016. A trip to San Diego, on tour with BOYTOY, an Arizona weekend filled with skateboarding and football, and a couple snaps from Long Beach.


BOYTOY – Wild One

A few months back I joined my friends BOYTOY on tour for stops in Joshua Tree and Las Vegas. Along the way we conceived and shot the following music video for their song Wild One. Special thanks to BOYTOY (Saara & Glenn) for being into making the most of the days and Dylan, Allie, & Zach for the cameos!
