Welcome! My name is MX Oops, you can call me MX. I am the artistic director of Complex Stability, a new york city-based transmedia production company committed to inciting ecstatic disobedience. Working in a wide range of mediums, each form of media being an extension of the senses, helps me deepen my sense perception and integrate those experiences. The name Complex Stability speaks to this exploration of consciousness as a medium. Most of the work on this site was made collaboratively, so, this site is a living archive and celebration of those collaborations. If you want to have a conversation about the work on this site, collaborate, book or support Complex Stability, we can be reached at [firstname.lastname@example.org].
