BITMORPH – Production Support
Ontario Science Centre, Toronto
Collaboration with artist, Micah Scott
I worked as a production support to physically construct the pods.
BitMorph is an interactive installation created by Ryerson New Media students in collaboration with The Ontario Science Centre. BitMorph inserts itself into the fabric of the centre by encouraging visitors to explore different areas. This interactive experience encouraged visitors to seek out 5 pods in the building and scan a card to grow a unique character that morphs as they explored new areas of The Ontario Science Centre. Characters could then be printed at revisited online at home. The installation was a huge success with 110,000 scans, 27,000 characters were fully morphed and 30% of visitors went to the website afterwards. The installation ran through July 2016 at the centre.
I worked on this production support for the internals housing of this installation during its exhibition at the TIFF DigiPlaySpace

Much like Nubo, our Marshmallow Clouds let you experience one of those things everyone has always wondered about — walking amongst the clouds. The only difference is that the Marshmallow Clouds hang from the ceiling for people to walk under, rather than being on the floor.
Marshmallow Clouds is a set of inflatable clouds with LED lights inside that can be used to create a magical, immersive landscape for event spaces. The clouds’ lights can be controlled in real time from a DMX console and be part of a show, react to music, or set to a number of different preset animations and colours.
FOREST – Production Manager
TIFF Bell Lightbox DigiPlaySpace, Toronto
I managed the production and fabrication of this piece.
Step into a luminous forest growing from floor to ceiling and navigate your way through twisting organic strands and interactive paths where bubbles of light slosh and flow, in this large-scale interactive light sculpture that encourages play, curiosity, and collaboration. Forest is a creative collaboration between internationally acclaimed visual and new media artist Micah Elizabeth Scott and the New Media program at Ryerson University’s RTA School of Media. This work is commissioned by TIFF for the 2015 digiPlaySpace.
While San Francisco-based Scott provided artistic concept and technical leadership, a group of Ryerson New Media students, led by Steve Daniels and David Bouchard, collaborated with Scott to design and fabricate this sophisticated, interactive digital artwork in Toronto.

Created by Ashley Jane Lewis, The Obama Board is a new twist on a traditional musical keyboard. Instead of a musical note, each key, when pressed emits the sound of a word from Barack Obama’s inauguration speech. Press the keys in the sequence of your choice to create you own speech!
