Reconfiguring Space

  The specific focus of my written research is a comparative study of Filippo Brunelleschi’s perspective device and the virtual reality work of Char Davies. This comparative study focuses on the ingredients of both devices as well as the similarities between the environments in which they were demonstrated. Brunelleschi’s Peephole device, according to his biographer…

2007 Midas

      The project investigates the transition phase between gold and skin is based initially on a collaboration with Symbiotica and then with Nanochemistry Research Institute (NRI). The change in data that can be recorded of the atoms vibration in relationship to the transition phase between skin and gold will be gathered and archived to use for the main…
