Another nights exploration produced these images (August 26, 2013). The objects are each members of a class of branching fractals generated from a single stroke of my pen and recursively drawn. The exploration takes place in my real-time system where I draw the initial stroke, tweak the parameters, and take a snapshot of the result.
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 […]
[ 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 […]
The Anitar is an upgrade to my classic performance console, allowing me more mobility on stage. It has all the functionality of my podium console, but in a cool form factor.
The style is fun and whimsical, but it’s completely functional. The components are nearly the same as I’ve used for my performances over the years, […]
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 […]
I made these one evening in my studio in 2007. They are studies on the expressiveness of branching fractals. Each “twig” is a duplicate of the larger branch that it spouts from. I created each image by drawing a freehand shape, then selecting a branching pattern and adjusting parameters, the number of nodes, and 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 […]
Images of Spinobifidae
Spinobifidae are a class of spindly, spiny, microscopic improvised semi-imaginary multi-celled creatures.
The images were created using my performance system. I draw and sculpt these in real-time using the gestures of both hands. Each gesture I draw is replicated with axial symmetry and fractal recursion.
Here are some color images, and following that are some […]
