I had the good fortune to work on a really fun project for the Maker Faire Rome as part of my freelance stint with Metalworks by Maxus, the creative technology R&D arm of the media buy company. So I would like to share a bit on what went on behind this project. The brief given to […]
This is an amazingly beautiful 3D projection mapping multimedia show about Singapore’s green and water spaces. Showcased at the Singapore Pavilion at Yeosu, Korea in 2012.
It is not easy to work with sound in general, to create pleasing or meaningful kinds of sound in media art. This sound object / installation from the IDEEA Lab (Interaction, Design, Entertainment, Education and Art) in the Graduate School of System Design Tokyo Metropolitan University has succeeded in creating a fun and engaging […]

Some interesting Kinect projects. 1. flow no. 1 | Kinect Projector Dance by prince_MIO (2013) Really cool particle flow motion and interactive graphics. There is a good synthesis between the physical movement of the dancer and the media technology. I want to do something like this someday.

The context and theme being “the dream of flying”, it takes on various shapes such as an aeroplane, moving waves and individual raindrops. I love the aesthetics, design and form of this […]
This kind of interactive 3D display is actually a combination of using holography and creating an interactive user interface on a flat glass surface (called “Airstrike” here). The user finger points and interacts through hand gestures with the displayed object through an interactive glass surface. Here is a 45 second concept video of it in […]
