    Zaha Hadid’s “520 West 28th” is her first residential project in New York City, situated in the notable West Chelsea neighborhood.

    The Exquisite Corpse Project 2 is a motion graphics piece directed by Michael Waldron and created by a group of artists from around the world. It debuted at this years Motion Conference in Santa Fe. The idea was to create a piece of art that you share with another artist. That artist has to figure out how to seamlessly transition into their piece and then they hand off their work to another artist. This is my contribution.

    Proposed Treatment/
    Spectra Balance. An experiment based on equilibrium and the gamut of color. Our hero will follow camera directed rolls to maintain level balance, while the world around him loses its hold of its scope of color. Each roll of the camera strips away the range of color till all is lost.
