The AES (Audio Effects System) is a tool to help encourage musical artists to explore and discover the possibilities afforded through their voices & natural sound. It is a device that can be used as freely in a live show or performance as it is as an educating tool.
The Soluis Portal is a unique immersive experience designed and developed over three years, funded by a Scottish government Knowledge Transfer Partnership in a bid to improve industry through application of direct innovative research. Embedding in the company as an immersive technology expert, the Portal was developed from prototype structure into commercial success.
The Immersive Projection Toolkit is a professional tool for the assitance in developing, preparing and performing completely integrated projection shows.
The toolkit integrates projection show control tools, playback system, keystoner, multi-fidelity pixel mapping tools and edge blending.
Working under Sublime Digital I formed the technical lead of the design, development and engineering teams for a unique 360 degree 24 foot, 12 projector experience.
8k @ 60fps, real-time games engine compatible. Offering unique brand engagements and immersive experiences from a user controlled iPad.
To launch three new cities aiming to provide economic stability without oil, the Saudi Arabian government wanted to hold a groundbreaking event. Utilizing three x 24 foot projection domes and a bespoke 42 foot immersive cylinder. Sublime created 4 unique immersive engaging scenesetter experiences.
To announce a new key strategic partnership with SoftBank, Wework wanted to show their amazing offices and facilities to a new international office.
In a unique projected experience users were able to visit a number of office around the globe using the (at the time) highest quality real 360 degree capture using the Nokia OZO camera.
An idea, that became a hobby, that became a company.

Operating in unique large format immersive spaces leads to a number of questions on best control methods for multiple users in 3D spaces.
For positioning company TOPCON, having users interact and control their complex 3D point cloud data in a intuitive way was essential.
To address this need, we developed a one-of-a-kind interactive 3D control system for multiple users.
An immersive 3 channel projection system used to bring to life art and performance surrounding the concepts of trauma on the human psyche.
Developed for Austin artist Yuliya Lanina, the projection system used the unique surfaces within the hosting gallery to allow an audience to step inside an animation, and gain deeper connection to the art, theme and images of the exhibition.
The system culminated in 3 unique live performance mixing live action and animation for a select audience.
Operating as a ‘Professor at Practice’, I use knowledge and experience from professional developments to create unique learning based on real-world experience.
Normally talking points include:

When working with unique immersive and large interactive technologies, there is often a requirement to test both the feasibility of a design and achieve stakeholder sign-off on any radical design elements.
To facilitate this I developed a pre-visualization tool using Touchdesigner that can automatically import 3D models and correctly assign lights, projectors and displays as labeled in the model hierarchy.
To showcase the idea of game theory in practice. The interactive children’s museum the ‘Thinkery’ was looking to create an unique interactive experience that got people active, interactive and talking – even with complete strangers.
The Game-Stallation uses common theories of competition, repetition and difficulty to create an interactive and immersive behavior changing game for the masses.
Electric Forest, is comprised of 16 pylons of light, that falls like rain from the canopy of a forest during a storm.
As users walked through the 8ft pylons light begins to fall faster and slower in response to their movements and proximity to the experience.
Regardless of the extreme deadline and budget, the project and installation were a success. With over 5000 visitors individually engaging with Electric Forest during the weekend.
