1. This large scale video mapping installation took place in an abandoned neo-gothic church in Brooklyn.
    The content questions the rapid parade of simulations making up our post-modern human experience. Like a map with no territory, these simulations hint at the existence of a hyper-reality, while quite possibly the true essence of reality becomes increasingly hermetic, crumbling and decaying from disuse.

    Now that the simulation proceeds the original, is the modern experience of beauty, divinity and love merely alienating us from the true essence of these experiences?

    "Simulacra" was created by Ryan Uzilevsky and produced by Light Harvest Studio and Bobby Redd. The work features sound design by Brandon Wolcott and Sky White Tiger. Animation by Whitney Alexander, and 3D camera by Kevin Bleach. Starring Kate Herrington. Additional design by Christopher Pugliese. Also starring Lauren Charlea, Vickki Smith, Maan and Jesse.

    We set out to create a one of a kind public art experience, a projection mapping installation for multiple surfaces and multiple dimensions. Created by a hand picked team of artists with sponsorship by AT+T, Senovva, Light Harvest, and Leo Kuelbs.

    Unfolding like an animated modern Botticelli painting, flowing above our heads and spreading outwards
    in every direction, “As Above, So Below” immersed viewers in the architecture of the Manhattan Bridge. Audiences physically entered the story and explored the shimmering surface as it ignited with messages and symbols.

    This originally conceived video mapping project was a challenge offered to a group of artists from varying backgrounds. Led by digital arts pioneers Farkas Fulop and Ryan Uzilevsky, with post production support by Sina Taherkhani, the group created a one-of-a-kind experience. Adding to the fun were Artists Simon Anaya, John Parker, Richard Jochum and Johnny Moreno. The final projection utilized over 25,000 square feet of architectural canvas, and ultimately won "Best In Show" at the Dumbo Arts Festival.

    This production tested every technique in image-making conceivable in the short time frame, including stop motion animation, and the suspension of over twenty performance artists from fly wires at sixteen feet off the ground.

    Leo Kuelb is responsible for securing the site and bringing the original team together. He also put together a great international video art showcase between screenings of "As Above, So Below."

  3. Listeners wander through our 9' x 9' space with a pair of headphones. Transient fragments of voices, papers rustling, poetry, and music emerge and evaporate as a result of the listener's movements, creating a dynamically changing composition. The piece is an attempt to distill the vast collections of the New York Public Library into a unique, non-linear sound experience.

    The listener's center of mass is tracked with a Microsoft Kinect sensor, control data based on their proximity to a series of sonic "hot spots" is generated in Processing, and the results are transmitted via Open Sound Control data to Max4Live patches that control the volume of various audio clips.

    Projected light halos visualize the listener's distance from hotspot locations as 101 vintage card catalog cards, one for each year NYPL's Stephen A. Schwarzman Building has served the public, strung into streamers, outline the sculpture's perimeter.
