Welcome, spindling interweb user.
Don't fear, I'm a Computational Media artist.
What does that mean?
I make films, websites, show flyers, do projection mapping, make music, visuals, and also challenging installation art. I am forever interested in aiding humankind by way of artistic design. I have worked on big projects for Fortune 500-funded startups, and for major universities, but I also have a big heart for the little guys. As a freelance web-developer, I have created a niche (and potential trend) for helping non-profits and social entrepreneurs to achieve their dreams and better this great planet. As an artist, I've shifted perspectives to a world of weird, and as a filmmaker, I hope to excavate the ancestry of the soul through the film Axé Orixá.

In this piece, the world is one of dreamspace, of familiar surreality. To do so, I equipped myself with a masterful team of collaborators, from live painters and vocalists to crotcheters, and together we were able to transport participants into this world in a relaxing, full-sensory vehicle.
The concept is to create a waking life version of a lucid dream, where participants are enabled to create and contribute to the transforming audiovisual journey entrancing them.
Participants enter one by one into a space with heavily draped lighting, shrouded in shadows, where a bed invites his/her relaxation. As she lies on the bed, projections begin to fill the room with fleeting shapes and elusive shadows that interact with the already existing shapes on the walls around the bed, as atmospheric music slowly drifts her into spaciousness. The narrative of the projections progresses as the shapes transform into nostalgic visions resonating with her youth, continuing on in a personalized form until her own image is introduced starkingly into the environment.
At this point, she may react, and as she does, the environment also reacts, affected depending upon her movements in the bed. Thus the narrative’s branches have been splintered, and the length and content of the experience depends on her interactions with the room around her, as well as the secret (yet ever-present) performance of the musicians’ interpretation of her experience.
