Exploring the Hyperreal - An Interactive Art Installation where the unreal and real blur
These are stills from an interactive world that I exhibited at the University of California, Santa Barbara. I built the interactive spaces with MAX/MSP/Jitter, Maya and Photoshop.
Big thanks to Marcos Novak and Lisa Jevbratt for showing me a new world of creative possibilities and Joe Reihsen for painting many of the amazing textures for the project.
One of my favorite moments as an artist was watching a room full of strangers go from composed spectators to playful participants.

I walked into a house that was beautiful in a timeless way but had not seen love in a good 50 years. I saw solid bones, a great location and my own HGTV experience.
We beat back a great deal of English Ivy, Bamboo and Laurel to expose a beautiful - yet still wild- acer of property. In the winter a peaceful brook runs from the back edge and through our woods. Giant ferns and mossy trees along the water create a delightful fairytale feel.
