I worked with Invisible Light Network to create the Arctic Chase video for the Barney's 2015 holiday windows. Arctic Chase mixes classic anime, CG, and glitch into an insane race through an arctic world. Daredevil penguins, Low G racers with anger management issues, monster race announcers, robot submarine captains, cyborg Yeti – and more – crowd into a wild race that threads through futuristic cities, ice caverns, and under the frozen sea.

Arctic Chase is one component to a larger display, featuring a slot-car track designed by Gary Gerding and 3-D-printed cars by Lexus covered in Swarovski crystals, all set to a custom score by composer Amnon Freidlin.

I worked with Invisible Light Network to create VS for American Express’ Rally On The River event for US Open Week. Incorporating archival footage, abstract design, high-speed water footage, and CG effects, VS told the story of two-time Grand Slam champion Maria Sharapova. Using four 20K Barco projectors, the film was displayed on a 40′ x 60′ screen of falling water suspended over the Hudson River at Manhattan’s Pier 97 to open the event.

Behind the scenes with Invisible Light Network for their Voice of Data project at Oracle’s OpenWorld event. The Voice of Data makes it possible to create something beautiful and unique using non-traditional tools – democratizing design and exploring the implications for the creative process in an era where mass production and mass customization are meeting.
