And then it happened... about eight years ago I started using the computer as a drawing tool. Now I use it almost exclusively.

Perceiving Interaction_13_thumb.jpg

The experimentation was based on a three-layer projection system with light sources, physical filters and spatial surfaces including balloons, paper waves, and foam core triangular structure, among others. For each layer of the system, I used a manifold projection of image, motion and sound content, as well as various materials, textures and shapes, to test multiple variables and possibilities.  read more »
