Rag and Bone SS 17
NYC, with in collaboration with T.E.M, 2016

Set design for the SS17 Rag and Bone fashion show, and further exploration into the possibilities of kinectic video. 3 x 2.5m tall towers with rotating 10,000 lumens projectors paint a moving scene around the catwalk as they scan the room. All content is generated in real-time using the positions of the projectors to render the 3d graphics.

As part of UVA's series of pendulum works, I have continued my involvement in refining the bespoke motion control and electronics systems that make up the kinetic pendulums.

Sinne (Helsinki), with Johanna Lundberg and Jenna Sutela, 2015

In this volume presented during eVOCAL, the original text by Tess Edmonson is analyzed and reproduced in 5 different ways representing alternative facets of language and its structures.

Clear, Loud, Bright, Forward
Palais Garnier, Paris, with United Visual Artists, 2015

As part of United Visual Artists, I worked on the scenographic installation which consists of 3 kinectic pendulums with integrated lighting elements set within a fully retroprojected box. Choreographed by Benjamin Millepied with music by Nico Mulhy, costumes by Iris van Herpen and additional lighting by Lucy Carter.

Palais Garnier, Paris, with United Visual Artists, 2015

The pendulums are choreographed to respond to the music and the movements of the dancers. The lights cast by the pendulums are a combination of the actual lighting attachements and of 'virtual' lights generated in real time and projected back into the space

Blueprint
Philadelphia Science Center, USA, with United Visual Artists, 2014

Blueprint is a series of two large scale dynamic lighting canvases. Arranged as a grid reminiscent of genome sequencing, each cell can shift state based on a set of evolutionary rules.

As part of UVA, I worked on developing the bespoke lighting panels that make up the artwork and its technical infrastructure from the earliest prototypes on through final production.

Principles of Motion II
Hyundai Motor Studio, Seoul, with United Visual Artists, 2014

Principles of Motion is a series of 5 kinetic artworks, surrounded by a large scale video work that explore motion itself as a medium. Patterned disks are spun and illuminated at specific frequencies bringing forward other movements and patterns that exist somewhere between the physical and the illusion.

For this UVA comission, I contributed to the elaboration of the technique used for the disks, and to the specification and implementation of kinetic, lighting and interaction elements.

Formation
Old Sorting Office, London, with United Visual Artists, 2014

Formation explores the possibilities of emergence in a room filled with objects that oscillate between chaos and order. 36 pendulums, each with their own light source, are swung from a bespoke 2 axis robotic gantry. From their initial state of unisson, each pendulum starts forming its own trajectory, finding its own pace and direction until the robot brings the whole back together.

Principles of Motion I

First iteration of Principles of Motion. The patterns have less built-in information; the images perceived are constructed from the interferences between motion, stimulus and fuzzy processes of perception.

Momentum
Curve Gallery, Barbican, with United Visual Artists, 2014

Commissioned by the Curve Gallery at the Barbican, UVA created an array of twelve synthetic pendulums, each one of their own light and sound source. The pendulums swing in coordinated patterns and transform from natural states to synthetic states.

As part of UVA, I contributed from start to finish in creating the pendulums, with a focus on how they can be controlled to achieve both natural motions and un-natural but convincing movements. During production my focus was on realizing the motion control, bespoke lighting fixtures and electronics.

LPD
Eastern Bloc (Montreal), with Tobias Ziegler, Morgan Sutherland, 2012

As an exploration of light as a physical medium and an homage to both Josef Albers and James Turrell, we explored and merged their techniques to create a space whose physical presence is modulated by the relationships between colors and intensities.
