CLIENT: Drone Not Drones | DATE: January, 2019
In our third year preforming for Drone Not Drones, we provided unique visual experiences for a number of artists as seen below. Looking to pull from installations like Human Rorschach, Zenith and Emergence, visuals were produced on the fly with the help of live cameras, kinect and more.

In an ongoing series of events held at Honey by rapper, Will Robinson, I showcased Metamorphosis, a live edited feed where people dancing could interact with an alien, glitchy version of themselves.
In the first version we utilized VDMX and a 1080 webcam. In the 2018 version, we utilized the xbox kinect, Touchdesigner and Resolume in order to create a live, light painting installation.
CLIENT: Secret Circus | DATE: September, 2018
With our third year at Secret Circus, we decided to pull out all the stops. We had full reign to build out the stage design we wanted and create the perfect visual aesthetic for this stage and style of music.
Here's the details:
Projection - BenQ Short Throw from the truss to the back wall. Three screens divided and mapped.
Monitors - 8, 17" monitors mirrored and hung on the front of the stage.
Lighting - 4 DMX scanners, 4 LED strips, 2 LED cubes for accent lighting and color schemes
Interactive - Kinect for Windows running into Touchdesigner giving both the DJ a unique look and the opportunity for the audience to interact and make their own visuals. It was a hit.

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.

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.
Music by Eyes For Ears.

The first venture into phone app creation was this experiment known as Kinetic Colors. Using data from your cell phone's accelerometer and gyroscope, the app changes colors to reflect speed and position.
As you move the phone around in space, you are able to draw with light and color with the help of long exposure photography. Check out a few of the cool results and download the app for Android below.

Utilizing video feedback, Strange Attractor explores the bizarre world with colors and shapes not normally known to mankind. With a specially curated audio soundscape from Ryan Bouchie, you'll soon see why this video gets so strange.
This piece was created to be an audio/visual installation of many forms, single screen, projection, or multi-screen installation as seen at BEATS NIGHT - PSYCHEDELIA.
It also has an interactive component where you can view the piece as spherical video and further explore the space to create a unique visual experience each and every time.
CLIENT: Can Can Wonderland | DATE: December, 2017
After a chance meeting with "Stan the 3D man" over a year ago, I reached back out to utilize his 3D shadow technology for an NYE party at Can Can Wonderland. My contact there had 200+ pairs of red/cyan anaglyph 3D glasses but no way to use them.
We procured and facilitated the installation near the back stage so guests could both view and interact with the fun and cool effect of the 3D shadows. Great for all ages. Get in touch if you'd like to have this on stage or at your event.

Have you ever FELT a video? Well, now you can at the Second Sight Visuals Feedback Petting Zoo!
Simply place your hand into this dark box... it won't bite, we promise... and watch as your touch controls and creates a colorful video. By showing the hand, you get a phantom limb-type sensation where you start to feel that you are actually petting the video.

Sculpture will never be the same.
Through a new project from Second Sight Visuals, projection mapping, light art, interactive technologies and physical sculpture combine in a modular piece we call Constellation.
Starting off with Ursa Major's iconic Big Dipper, we tested a proof of concept where light played and danced off of a reflective sculpture that bares the shape of said constellation.
The interactivity comes through all sorts of controllers such as tapping out beats and playing it like a drum, using buttons in chords like an organ, or having a Wii remote work like a flashlight and explore the piece that way.
Additionally testing is in the works for audio reactivity and using this sculpture in a live music setting.
The opportunities for unique interactions with the sculpture are truly limitless and we are excited to dive in further.
