Cross-Modal Perception Series

Screen Shot 2019-06-05 at 6.42.17 PM
Recently I found out that the way I experience time is a form of synesthesia. Previously I always assumed this cross-modal perception only happened to the rare few who could see music or hear colors. Now I am happy to be collaborating with two synesthetes: Geri Hahn who sees music and other sounds very vividly, and Dr. Svetlana Rudenko, a neuroscientist, also a synesthete, and composer. I have created this animation “Synaesthesia edit01” to describe the motions and colors that Geri sees when she listens to Dr. Rudenko’s Dancing Textures composition. Read more

Amulets for Introverts

Amulets For Introverts are single egg-shaped objects each made by machine, hand, and nature – all designed to give shy people social super powers. Some of them even include smaller objects trapped inside: freshwater pearls, seeds and even the artist’s own baby teeth.
Given a set P := {p1, …, pn} of sites, a Voronoi Tessellation is a subdivision of the space into n cells, one for each site in P, with the property that a point q lies in the cell corresponding to a site pi iff d(pi, q) < d(pj, q) for i distinct from j. The segments in a Voronoi Tessellation correspond to all points in the plane equidistant to the two nearest sites.

Shark Tank Approved

 

Ann GMA Board

Producer Taylor Dunn invited me to ABC studios  to give a short one-minute pitch about my technology consulting business to Barbara Corcoran and Robert Herjavec from Shark Tank. This was part of a Good Morning America segment about communicating the value of what you do– ostensibly to get a raise.  I was delighted to get an enthusiastic two thumbs up from the sharks and (a third thumb up) from tech correspondent Rebecca Jarvis (of the No Limits podcast).

Better yet, during the time on set between multiple takes I learned from Barbara that she has a 3D printer in her office and has no idea what to do with it.  “I’ve got you- Tell me one important problem about high-end real estate and I’ll show you how to use your printer to help solve it.  This is what I do. It’ll be fun!”

How to Talk Yourself Onto The Roof

I asked New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center security officials to let me walk the roof of the convention center with some gear. It wasn’t easy. And there are some stories here. But I wanted to use a GIGAPAN to create the largest panoramic composite photograph I could imagine.

3D Print Management for Success

You just got a 3D printer!

(Now what!?)

3D printers (rapid prototyping systems) are an amazing tool for your maker-space, school, non-profit or atelier.  But after you get a single machine, or a suite, who is going to manage it?  How will you make sure that it gets used in a meaningful way? How can you be certain you’re really getting your money’s worth?

I’m here to help you.  When I’m not working at Ramapo College as a professor of 3D Design and Animation, or in the studio with my own research, I do consulting for institutions that want to understand how to best apply 3D printing to their existing workflow while minimizing waste and frustration.

Reconstructed History

At a panel discussion for the Taplin Gallery exhibition Reconstructed History  a unique conversation occurred focusing on decommissioned spaces and objects, the transferred gaze, layers, landscape interiors as mental spaces and site-specific social history.  Basically, all of my favorite things.
