6Octave Matrix Environmentally Interactive Sculpture

(in progress)

Olympic Sculpture Park

Seattle, WA.

Description: Environmental PUI + Max MSP OpenGl, midi, G5, 6 panel LCD screen proposal & prototypes.

I was asked by Lisa Corrin the curator of Olympic Sculpture Park to design a sculpture that would move at “35 miles an hour”. Upon Lisa Corrin request I followed our meeting visiting the Weiss/Manfredi architects office to view the Olympia Sculpture Park Models (3) year prior to museum construction. 

My interpretation of the models was to design a piece that responded to the environment, the movement of the grounds and researching precipitation in Seattle I thought a good place to start in reinterpreting precipitation auditor ally and visually.

A collaborative Interactive performance Romantic Complcato is an almost comedic look at love - collaborative performance project started between Liz Burch and I. After many conversations my listening to Liz talk about her romantic conquests we came up with a concept.

I then developed all of the components, MaxMSP patch, audio and video making it even more elaborate and whimsical, then Liz added more ideas making it more narrative and more fantastical.

"The Mall"
Washington, DC

 

Description: Interactive Video Performance

Earthday concept and built by Greg Hull and I was exhibited 3 hrs while walking the Mall of Washington DC during the 20th anniversary of earthday.  For the performance a crew of eight people dressed in white carried the interactive video structure (2 monitors, 2 video decks, 1 video camera, 1 interactive video switcher and a generator) thought a crowd of thousands.

The interactive video switcher integrated with the video camera mounted on the front of the structure was programmed to send a live video signal of the audience to the 2 monitors mounted in the structure (covered in grass).  The monitors altered between pre-recorded imagery and live footage of the earth day crowd.
