We wanted to explore the core value of light, so in SANCTUS white light was contorted and pushed through a prism creating a ballet of rainbows. We then set this beautiful dance to an improvised set by the Infinite Strangers.

An experiment in immersive light. Down the Rabbit Hole has you staring right into the light at the end of the tunnel. Photons of all colors brush right past your face as you're glued to your seat. An inviting but challenging track from Infinite Strangers challenges your perceptions, time moves slower.
Come and follow us down.

I was asked to contribute video remixes for the 2018 Northern Spark festival by Paige Dansinger of the Better World Museum. The source videos were of people drawing local edible plants in virtual reality. I created a three layered mandala out of these clips and utilized numbers from the Fibonacci sequence to inform the kaleidoscopic effects. This, in turn, created new and novel virtual flowers with similar shapes and growth patterns that can be found in nature.
This was part of a group projection for two nights on the ceiling of the Minneapolis Central Library.

A derivative of our initial creation Constellation, Chaotic // Order is a rearrangement of the mirrored pyramids to create new structures. Here eight pyramids circle one central pyramid that are mapped all together and individually to create a playable structure.
You can see bits of this sculpture in action from our Interactive Salon performance.

Following a successful 2017 presentation, I was primed and ready to come back with even more groundbreaking lumia projects.
This presentation picked up from where I left off and was titled "Technologically Mediated Lumia Continued." Using many of the same techniques and equipment, I focused even further on interactive qualities that bring light art techniques into the modern age.

In a follow up event to Lighting the Way, Ben Hunder, one of the Infinite Strangers, and Second Sight Visuals put on an entirely interactive showcase at Art Works Eagan.
On the visual side we had a hand held lumia station and a kinect "light shadow" for people to play with. There was also a light painting booth with our Kinetic Colors App and I controlled a projection mapped lumia sculpture.
For audio, guests were encouraged to manipulate sound through midi controllers, keyboards and other digital means.
Overall it seemed like a huge success, everyone from the youngest of guests to the oldest got in on the action.

In a continual exploration of light and its properties, I've built out these lightscapes (also available as metal prints). Standing around 15'x10' these static, projected forms look at color and shape to create an immersive experience.

Two layers of projection merge and blend playing host to positive and negative spaces.
The first is a front projected sphere whose contents shift through a feedback-styled dance.
The second is a reflected lumia projection harnessing colors that push through the white noise.
This style was harnessed live during the Art-Tech Experience.

The second in a series of shows at Honey in Minneapolis, I used this platform to break out my latest show, EMERGENCE. EMERGENCE is a generative fractal performance that uses VDMX and video feedback to produce fractal forms that grow and change color. Plus, I did it all by hand (in a sense).
Check out the definition of emergence here.
Enjoy the Facebook live feed below and a few other shots from that night as well.

Which TV show do you think of with a classic title sequence?
For us, these shows also happen to be our favorites. We re-imagined these intros as a kinetic lumia piece. With good negative space, memorable colors and audio, these intros see new light (literally).
