In 2014, I was commissioned to create a projection installation for the TED PRIZE Gala in Vancouver. I directed the design of a 3D animation that whimsically showed a Rube Goldberg machine fabricating Ted Prize trophies through an assembly line of industrial processes. The animation was projection mapped onto the architecture at Montauk Furniture, to appear as a virtual extension of the physical room.
Then in 2015, in conjunction with Invoke, Summit Series and Fortune Sound, I art directed a series of after-conference events featuring a showcase of interactive projection art from myself, and local artists Mark Nazemi and Karl Simmons. We transformed a gutted industrial space in Chinatown into a dynamic video environment using projection mapping techniques, and hosted hundreds of TED conference attendees as well as world class musical acts such as Jon Batiste & Stay Human.
