Interactive footwear projection mapping installation created for BucketFeet's storefront pop-up shop at Treasure&Bond in NYC, on public display nightly, May 8–30, 2013. [Extended to June 21!]

An evolution of the 'illuminimal' design concept, 'illumifeet' adds an interactive element: when a viewer walks up to the display, BucketFeet's new styles (both lace up and slip on) and the artists behind them, are projection mapped onto a blank shoe 'canvas.' As long as they stay watching, they are shown new styles, and when they walk away, it returns to an idle state.

BucketFeet excitedly approached me about collaborating on this project, supplied me with their new designs, and gave me complete creative freedom on the overall design, storyboarding, animations, and all other aspects. I travelled down, installed it (with the huge help of Jerome from T&B), and it was revealed at their launch party on May 9th, 2013.
