Triangles to Stare At

These things keep coming to mind when I think about hierarchical procedures and taxonomies. Scale can visualize additional information, such as priority or quantity. But my good friend Biff has been casting his eye upon my visual mutterings and staring at them for some time. The ones he’s been staring at are equilateral, which I […]

A Portrait of Jonathan Wright

I’ve worked with Jonathan a number of times of the past few years. He has an interesting selection of hats; his art director hat, his prop maker hat, his radio enthusiast hat, his artists hat and probably many more hats that I haven’t seen him wearing yet. He’s a special breed of human that cares […]

Passive Observations

March 1, 2022.  Blackwell House DEAR MISS FRANCO, I’m compiling new code for my ‘thought experiment’ as you call it. A number of large data set queries that scrape comments and responses to emotionally tackling subjects. Specific words and terms related to sadness. Currently the events accessing these new procedures are completely implausible, or at least […]

Interface Concepts

These aren’t traditional designs for a UI, more of an abstract concept based on some research and thoughts. During creating these I did come up with some ideas involving multi-layered cylinders that might be an interesting development.

Imersa – The Future of Immersive Media

I got back from Imersa last week, but now the dust has settled and my feet have thawed, I’m reflecting on an incredible week in Denver. I’m not sure if it was jetlag, the snow or the high altitude, but Imersa felt non-stop. Maybe it was just non-stop. This was the first time I’ve been […]

A Letter to Faith

A Letter to Faith

There’s something special about a hand written letter. A physical connection to words that is lost through email and texting. I don’t think that the digital revolution has left us without soul or emotion, just that there’s an extra level of communication that can be attained through pen on paper. The way the words are […]

Volvox and Tracing Thoughts

An evening spent wandering on the internet. I like wandering on the internet, it’s kind of like daydreaming in a way. But unlike daydreaming, you can trace your thought process back to where you started. People always comment on the amount of tabs I have open in my Chrome browser. I like keeping lots of […]
