IceBerger is an immersive music installation combining projection mapping, 3D scanning/printing, and remixing sound. Based on the aesthetics of the film Interstellar and the words of John Berger in "Ways of Seeing". The installation was at midnight on May 14, 2015 on an outdoor stage creating an interactive sculpture in the round for viewers to interact with for 25 minutes.
A collaboration with Cody Burchfield, Jesus Chapparro, and Mahon Yoder. May 2015.

Cube Garden is an installation built to challenge the space of musical environments, specifically a Baths concert at my college. We constructed three 2.5 ft x 2.5 ft cubes and one 5 ft x 5 ft cube we wrapped in plastic sheeting and spray painted blue. Our aesthetic was galactic and our execution was what one might call crafty.

Lanterns is a night installation that pairs the hand and the machine. From interactive water-floating lanterns to tree-hanging laser cut lantern boxes, nature, technology, and art merge to create a secret garden.
We connected multiple LittleBits wiring and LED lights in mason jars to a portable and wireless pressure sensor using the cloud bit. When applying more pressure, the LED lights change colors (to red) and when applying less pressure they turn back to green and blue. The laser cut lanterns were designed in illustrator and implemented on cherry wood. More of the process can be seen in my blog.
A collaboration with Audrey Vaughan and Maddy Webster. December 2014.

Interactive Dancefloor makes it possible for anyone to create music. Each tile when stepped on completes a circuit that mysteriously changes various sound loops and their effects as well as visual graphics on a computer screen that are key-controlled within Ableton Live and MaxMSP.
