Last week, we had an amazing show. I had the pleasure of working with two amazing musicians on this performance. Pianist Robert Thies and flutist Damjan Krajacic had created two albums of their musical collaboration, and I joined them to illustrate their music live.
We call the collaboration “Spontaneous Landscapes”, which is both a descriptive title and […]

Spontaneous Fantasia: Virtual Christmas!
Merry Christmas! Enjoy this series of animated videos my friends and I created and are releasing over 12 days, starting on Christmas Day, 2014.
Each video illustrates a verse of the song “The Twelve Days of Christmas”.
J-Walt conceived this project on December 18th, and quickly assembled the team which created designs and animations to match the […]
My night’s exploration of fractal patterns revealed a similarity between 2D Julia-style fractals and carved lapidary stones. A cut stone reveals a 3D volume in much the same way that a Julia set rendering reveals a 2D slice of a 4D configuration.
I created these images on September 2, 2013 with my animation performance system, navigating […]
Zerynthia is a world of wonder and mystery. Floating wavering creatures, mysterious monoliths, and shuddering trees exist under an iridescent sky. I started exploring this world in 2013, and I continue to discover the mysteries and meanings within.
“Zerynthia” is video installation for experiencing a 3D world. One looks into this world as though through a large picture window. The scenes are inviting and captivating. Visitors linger long and discover aspects of this world that often I had not noticed or planned.
Here’s are images from this work-in-progress, including 3D stereoscopic versions (for red-cyan glasses viewing!)
Zerynthia was first exhibited at the Young Projects Gallery. It was part of a show that that ran March 19 through May 3, 2013. Update: As of May 6, 2013, I’ve had three sales of this installation. Four more are available. Contact the Young Projects Gallery to purchase this installation.
I’ve exhibited the installation on three occasions in 2015: June, September, and December.
[ May 15, 2013; 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm. 8:00 pm to 9:00 pm. ] May 15 performances!
The Hong Kong Space Museum is a world-class planetarium. I had a chance to visit this planetarium last December, after my performances in nearby Macau. I’ll be privileged to bend the dome to my will as I create fantastic worlds within. It’s so fun to be able to perform in such theaters. The […]
Controlling Space and Time with the Razer Hydra
I’ve just recently integrated another interface into my performance system: the Razer Hydra. Unlike my ANITAR, this interface is off-the-shelf. The Hydra is a gaming interface along the lines of the Nintendo Wii, but this one is magnetic. Unlike old-school magnetic interfaces I’ve used in the past, the […]
[ November 5, 2011 9:00 pm to November 6, 2011 2:00 am. ] Amsterdam’s Museumnacht is the annual city-wide open house party, when thousands of visitors experience the venerable institutions through the night.
I’m honored to be part of this event, being featured at the Artis Planetarium on the night of November 5. This is a beautiful digital planetarium in the center of the city, a great place to […]
[ May 27, 2011; 5:00 pm to 11:00 pm. ] On May 27, 2011, I will be performing virtual reality in Warsaw, Poland at the new planetarium in the Copernicus Science Centre. The facility looks amazing. It’s a brand-new stereoscopic 3D planetarium designed and installed by Sky-Skan. I will be doing 3 performances as part of the ECSITE conference. I have not performed in Europe […]
