Internal Alchemy – An interactive video art installation

Internal Alchemy is a video art installation I created that maps chakra points on people’s bodies using a projector. They can then look at themselves in a mirror and interact with the different chakra points as they touch them. As you touch the different chakra points, different effects happen. You can then use your hands to “heal” yourself.  As you do that you can watch the different chakra points radiate energy or watch your chi energy move up and down your body. This is a great way for people to understand how chi energy works along with a fun way to see your spiritual body projected on to yourself. To create Internal Alchemy I used the Unity video game engine along with a Microsoft Kinect. When no user is detected it will display an instruction screen informing user how to interact with it. When a user approaches and is detected from the Kinect, the calibration process will begin. Internal Alchemy will instruct the user to align themselves to the outline of the figure and raise their right hand to initiate the chakra sequence. This will allow the chakras to map onto the body. The chakra points will then project on their body and track with their movement in real time. Participants can then look at themselves in the mirror and touch each chakra point on their body. Different chakra points have different visual effects as they touch each one. Participants can then “heal” themselves as they interact with each chakra point and watch the chi energy flow up and down their body. Magical particles will track the user’s hands as they move. Touching different chakra points will have different explosive fx. Participants can immerse themselves in a fun playful environment as they interact with each one. Participants can watch their chi energy rise and fall along their meridians as they touch each chakra point with their “healing” hands and visually see it moving on their own body. The installation consists of a screen, hardware enclosure, mirror and frame. The hardware enclosure consists of a MS Kinect, a projector and a laptop. The projector projects the light off of the mirror and onto the participant’s body. The Kinect faces the participant so it can detect movement....

4th of July Visuals – Projection Mapping and Stage Design

This is an example of some of my stage design, VJ and projection mapping work. I was booked to perform visuals for an event called Aqua Phonics in San Marcos on July 4th, 2014. I designed the stage previously and it was built with the help of Blue Light Entertainment. Since July 4th is a beloved American holiday I got inspired to do a “MERICA!!!” theme content. You’ll see when you watch the video. I designed the stage structure and created MERICA style content for to project on to it and got to perform with Gladkill and Liquid Stranger along with other artists.  This is a video I made showing some of the content I...

Rock Out with your Rock Out

Rock Out with your Rock Out

I always had this idea for a really cool party idea would be to have an altar in front of the DJ booth and have everyone at the party bring their favorite rock, gem, crystal or stone  and place the stones on the altar. Then after placing them on the altar we can all dance with our rocks and communion with nature to illustrate our symbiotic relationship with it.   I always felt that rocks and stones could send and receive vibrations from nature and there’s a lot of philosophies that are into that so I thought about doing an experiment where people would place the rocks on the altar and you could think about whatever you wanted to but if you were dancing with your rocks at that energy could resonate with them. Then after that you could take your rocks or gems or crystals backed back home or you could gift it to someone else and see what it does.   This idea had been brewing in my mind for sometime and then I finally hooked up with my friend Hector Dominguez who also ran a production company called Blue Light Entertainment. Hector has sound equipment and lighting equipment and we decided to collaborate on this project together. I told him about my idea and that I wanted to call it Rock Out with your Rock Out. We then came up with a production company name called Dirty by Design. We made logos and a website for it and started promoting for it.I then reached out to my friend Scott Stanley In Dallas to see if you wanted to collaborates doing visuals on this party at that time I didn’t have any video content nor the hardware to really run it like I wanted to so I had him do the visuals along with Mike Cocanower.   The original idea that I had in mind was to have two crystals on the end of the DJ booth and then a big crystal that’s in the middle of the front of the DJ booth then have projection mapping visuals mapped onto those crystals. These crystals needed to be pretty light and transportable so we cut out plywood frames for the crystals. Here are the crystals right when we built them.         We then got sheets of lycra and stretched it over the frame to make a very light weight and weatherproof art structure to project the visuals on.               Rigorous testing was required out of all of our infrastructure to make sure that it had the most efficient impact on the harmonic vibrations of the patrons.             At the time of the show everything went off really well and it created an awesome effect check out from there it really inspired me that I wanted to get into doing projection mapping and start doing some of my own work check out this video to see The end...
