Katy Perry VIP Lounge, Six-Screen Panoramic Video Installation/Animation

Animation and video installation for a six-screen panoramic installation at Katy Perry’s VIP lounge at her album launch concert in Berlin 2010. Taking the album’s cover art as inspiration and based on the event theme: Candy, I created three different ‘Moods’ animations, to follow the schedule of the event and time of day, from late afternoon to after-midnight:

1: Blue Sky Cocktails (Pre-concert)
2: Candy Concert (During and Post-Concert)
3: Sunset Afterparty (After-Party)

‘König’ 2-Channel Video Installation, Zürich

The piece is a narrative study about control, power relations and identity. A character talks through their personal growth from child to adult and in their story we hear the growth of modern societies, ‘king’doms and the spread of the technology empire.

Two channel video installation mapped onto blackboards, with narrative soundtrack. Completed during a guest period at Zürcher Hochschule der Künste (ZHdK School of Arts, Zürich).

IAAF International Athletics Championships;
Dynamic Screen Installation & Scenography

I was commissioned to design and programme a live-updateable ‘Champion Medalists’ screen installation for the 2009 IAAF International Athletics Championships. The installation was displayed on an 8m wide panoramic ‘cube’ and ran autonomously during the closing event and final Awards Ceremony.

I programmed a fully-dynamic live software patch that ran entirely from an xml document; all images, content, animation controls, could be easily edited via a single text file, without interrupting the screen display. This was critical, as the final races were still underway, therefore the last Gold Medalist Champions needed to be added to the installation while it was live.

‘Trinity’, Audioreactive Projection Installation. Artist residency work, Belfast.

Trinity was developed during a 2 month artist residency at Queens St. Studios in Belfast, 2009, after being awarded their International Artist Residency Grant. It is a response to the so called ‘peace walls’ still existing throughout the city; active remnants of the drastic religious and political division of the former war zone. It explores the concept of belonging; to a place, to a cultural group, to a country. The question of who has authority in this environment is presented and the outcome varies depending on the audience.
