Feedback is an infinitely complex digital creation. Using this, we projected and controlled this beast by hand to create an eerie, black and white version focusing on the shapes and patterns created.

This is what it's like when worlds collide.
Glitched video files create breathtaking color arrangements and movements that can't be either described or predicted. Song by Ryan Bouchie of all so frightened.

SUPERLUMINAL: communication and travel are the conjectural propagation of information or matter faster than the speed of light.
Utilizing the smooth jams of Ross Auger again, this video creates pattern and thought from a hyper look at light, reflection and color.
CLIENT: Northern Spark | DATE: June, 2018
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.

Feedback, normally a chaotic and uncontrollable force. Yet here, with "valence" we find a calm and directed look into the unknown. Featuring more slick beats by all so frightened, let this tune and visual drift you away.

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.
CLIENT: Art Works Eagan | DATE: May, 2018
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.

Playing on the success of Chaotic // Order, we experimented with doing more hands-on techniques with lumia and light manipulation onto the sculpture. Metallic film, prisms, custom glass plates, and more.

CLIENT: Elemento - P, Light City Baltimore | DATE: April, 2018
Taking another approach to liquids, we set up a macro system to capture intricate movements and interactions. This footage was then set to the song "HALT!" by ELEMENTO-P. This mix of spacey beats and alien-esque womb visuals was selected by Light City in Baltimore (the largest lighting festival in the United States) to run on their "On Demand" screen for the entire run of the event.
Check the video below and some footage of it live in Baltimore.
