The Pantheon

The Pantheon is a mechatronic art system which evolved out of an adaptation of the servers and hardware used by the music technology department at CalArts to control the mechatronic instruments residing in the Machine Lab. The Pantheon is structured to be modular, flexible, and easy to learn. Server The Pantheon server is written in…

Chroma-Temporal Surveillance Bot

According to the book series The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, written by Douglas Adams, 42 is “the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe, and everything” as calculated, over 7.5 million years, by the mammoth supercomputer Deep Thought. When faced with the answer to the ultimate question, the beings whom constructed Deep…

Yin~Yang

Yin~Yang is an interactive, audio-visual installation that examines balance and friction between two opposing forces. The meta-project Yin~Yang has been shown several times in 2015-16 with each iteration drawing from different source material to create a varying, yet unified, experience. While the underlaying media and exact presentation varies from gallery to gallery, Yin~Yang is always bound together…

Symbiotic SNES

Inside a clear acrylic box resides two SNES controller circuit boards (no plastic buttons or enclosures), an Arduino MEGA and eight LED’s. The Arduino intercepts buttons presses from the two input controllers and performs a logic operation on the control messages before passing the data to a unmodified host SNES console. This SNES/Arduino project seeks to…

Cathode Ray Tubes

Cathode Ray Tubes builds a feedback loop out of four cathode ray tube (CRT) televisions (TVs) and four Retrono synthesizers: modern knock-offs of the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) video game consoles which have been slightly modified.  The Retrono interfaces are sensitive to changes in the electromagnetic field surrounding them resulting in a vulnerability to the…

Visual Programming

I have developed a variety of generative, computational, and interactive visual programs both for the gallery and corporate office. This post provides a brief sampling of some of the artistic visual programs I have developed. If you are interested in seeing more, feel free to take a look at these, and other, programming projects on…

Circuit Bending

My circuit bending research focuses on exploring different approaches to adding external control mechanisms to found circuitry. This post provides information about a sampling of controllers designed to control circuit bent instruments in performance as well as installation settings. A few select circuit bent instruments and toys are also briefly presented. Toys The Toys interface…
