Fractoid 2.1 is the second in a series of projection mapped sculptures. Fractoid 2.1 is synched to futuristic beat-machines and operates based off of audience interaction. When certain combinations of keystrokes are entered on the midi controller, the kinetic sculpture has the ability to rotate into different 3 shapes. Full credits listed on the Vimeo page.

Design and Animation for a dark and moody pitch we won at Psyop NY. Directed by Jon Saunders and Laurent Barthelemy.The final spot was rendered by Jacob Slutzky, comped by Nick Tanner.
The end result of a few weeks spent at The Mill NY researching and developing various graphic styles that can be replicated through procedural trials. All of the particles were created as if in an invisible cube. They will later be projected onto a physical cube as part of the new interactive installation.
Oscar-winning director Alex Gibney’s latest documentary, We Steal Secrets: The Story of WikiLeaks, follows the controversial whistleblowing site and its even more controversial leader, Julian Assange.
It tells the story of the site’s creation up to its execution of the largest security breach in US history.Below is the montage of some of my favorites graphics I produced for the film.Directed by Marc Smith at FramestoreNY.
Fast Paced animation for the electronic rock band from Helsinki K-X-P.
Thru projection mapping, the user would be able to pick up his car model, change the color, and even see it parking in front of his own house.Early concepts Frames I did for Bossa studio in NY.
Also I was part of the composting team over at Hornet creating the assets for the Projection mapping final stage.
Where Guillerme directed an amazing projection mapped sequence with over 7 projectors and all kinds of technical madness.
The first iteration of the Metalloid Trooper makes it now a interactive sculpture that triggers various graphics and audio when certain volume peaks are reached in the ambient sound.
The underlying non linear story about the journey of the extra-dimensional being, trapped in earth, and poisoned by humans.
Special sound effects by Chris Lane. The sound reactive sculpture was presented at the Kernel Festival in Milan, Italy. Click here for more pictures of the festival.
An inter-dimensional journey reveals itself and continuously creates both the physical and the chain of higher metaphysical realms. Passing through the 10 Sephirots and therefore reaching the point of oblivion.Together with Felipe Posada, we created a set of visuals for Madonnas 2012 World Tour.I was in charge of designing, animating and composting all the 3d shots of the set.

Fractoid is a projection mapped sound sculpture that works as a futuristic beat-machine. People interact with it through alight emitting midi controller composed of 36 glowing keys and 10knobs which control
and enable the live mixing of the audiovisual output, a video-camera transmitting real time feedback, a joystick moving a focal 3d light over the sculpture and a set of two directional speakers.
This installation was custom made for the Lightning in a Bottle 2012music/art festival in LA, the concept behind the whole piece was to build an interactive piece that attracts people passing by, to play and compose their one scores during the 3-day musical frenzy.
Three forces collaborated to give life to the piece, Mike Russek built the 6.5´ sculpture and designed and built the retro-looking midi console, Chris Lane created the sound design from a tight and exiting dialogue with me, who designed the
sculpture and the visuals and programmed the whole system in TD.
Awesome team, amazing experience!
Thanks to the Smart Gallery for the best camping crowd and spot in the place :)
Sound reactive projection mapped paper sculpture. Based on the Audio peaks of the ambient, this interactive sculpture will change colors, trigger videos, and also has real time feed-back camera.
New York city is the background for this a nostalgic and fast paced story about a character, a creator, who trough-out the video builds a machine heart that represents love. He fills this heart with super magnetic memory fields containing default memories (it is the problematic of one person, that represents many at the same time), only to have it burned at the end. Better kept than lived. “but I’m in love with you, want to stay in love with you…so I’m going to live alone”
Talking a little about technicalities, we can say that no light bulb was turned on, no machine/gadget was plugged in. Everything was lit and came to life through projection mapping and the animations that where created for all scenes. Everything was shot with a 7D, and a gopro Hero.
The video was done in two months by two great friends, motion designer and animator Gabriel Pulecio aka lustix.com who directed the piece and digital artist Lorena Kraus.

Meticulously hancrafted in El Ricaurte, Bogotá. and after many long but enjoyable drives back and forth from the workshop, Lustix letterpressed bussiness cards are finally here!
With a new 2012 holographic foil logo with UV coating on the front of the card and silver and white foil on the back, we are presented with the aftermath of uniqueness in every piece.

Metalloid Trooper is the first attempt to combine projection mapping and inflatable sculpting. The inflatable sculpture model was designed in 3D to be later translated into fabric and then put together as a inflatable piece that stands on its own and becomes a screen. This 3 dimensional screen is a provoking surface for the development of a series of animations. The animation explores different materials and textures along with some light effects that are carefully synked with an audio track to create an intense and perceptual immersive experience. The result was striking.
This is a quick edit with footage taken with several iPhones at the first appearance of the piece at a 3rd Ward Inflatable Sculpture Show in April, 2011. Brooklyn, NY.

Of course data is continually changing, updating and refreshing. Data doesn’t die or is born, it only transforms.
The implications of these are at once thrilling and worrying. Data can be generated so easily and flow beyond our control too; it will follow you everywhere you go. Framestore, NYC.
