COMMISSION FOR THE ROCKEFELLER GROUP 

The Master Builder is a bas-relief mural inspired by those found adorning the entrances at Rockefeller plaza and presented as a moving tableau vivant. The slowly-scrolling video collage retells the Rockefeller legacy from the past into the present day and finally, the future - punctuated by iconic moments and monumental architecture ingrained in the historic fabric of Manhattan. The 2 minute film is a continuous “time-lapse” journey where the promise of the American dream is shaped into reality. 

 
 
 

ANTHROPOCENE

Anthropocene is a site-specific video installation exploring the relationship between Central Park and the surrounding metropolis. The dynamics between the natural and man-made are made visual using LiDAR technology to scan a path from the southwest corner to the northeast corner of Central Park. The installation consists of two intersecting video channels using the raw LiDAR data of the wholly man-made park and night-vision black and white views of its immediate surroundings. 

 

LiDAR is a scanning technology used in archaeology and architecture to digitally map objects using reflected laser light an this is the first use of this technology in a video installation context. 

The term Anthropocene describes the extent of influence human activities have had on Earth’s ecosystems. 

Three-channel video installation, 8:03s

Apollo XVIII is a multi-channel video installation which interprets man’s relationship to space exploration and presents an imagined mission to the moon; a mission born in the virtual age. 

During March 2015, Times Square was transformed into a virtual launchpad as Apollo XVIII played across dozens of electronic billboards from 11:57 p.m. to midnight. In collaboration with NASA, footage was filmed at Cape Canaveral, combined with Hubble imagery, rare material from the NASA archives and original computer-generated imagery to fabricate the fictitious mission. 

Combining iconic moments from past and present with the wholly synthetic, Apollo XVIII presented a new collective viewing experience, calling into question the nature of fact and fiction, reality versus perception and context.

CONSTELLATION

Constellation is a kinetic video sculpture based on an original shape derived from Fibonacci numbers and golden sections found in nature. The resulting computer-generated video sculpture appears as a free-standing spherical projection in constant motion at the center of the installation. The sphere is surrounded by a tryptic of projections showing variations of the Fibonacci sculpture now replicated many times in space further expanding on the concept of infinite multiplication of fractals shape and form. 

High def. video projection, sound, 2:30s, loop
