Squirrel Mobile Pollution Monitors

The Squirrel Mobile Pollution Monitor is a device, created by Shannon Spanhake, that measures pollution levels and can interface with various mobile devices. I developed a playful interface for Shannon to showcase the device's capabilities. The interface displays on a cell phone the current pollution levels (ppm) and animates environmental changes based on those levels.

Surround Cinema featuring Recombinant Media Labs

I’ve been meaning to write about this for some time, but finally found the right time.

In June/July, I helped work on a combined project with University of California, San Diego (UCSD) and Recombinant Media Labs (RML).

Together they formed a rectangle 24 feet x 36 feet. 10 projectors, 1 per screen, projected on each screen to create a full 360 surround experience.

Revisiting the Art World

I’ve been going through and trying to collect and organize things on my computer and happened to find some old artwork. I’m hoping to eventually get time to revisit some of the more visual and artistic times I used to have time for.

Here’s a glimpse of some of my past work. I’d love to hear what you think!

These include: pen and ink and pencil drawings, illustrator and photoshop work, logo and magazine design and some other random manipulations.

Check out some of the dates on these; I feel old.
