An inter-departmental Tisch School of the Arts collaboration project, this is my master's thesis for ITP, created with Emily Chang for her master's thesis in the Performance Studies.

"Papermoon" is a short theatrical production using poetry, dance, and video. I co-wrote, directed, and mix the video using real-time image processing software.
Commedia del Arte Performance in Multiuser 3D

This project was presented at SIGGRAPH 2003 conference for sketches & applications, and was one of the feature presentations at Machinima Festival 2003.

In a nutshell, it's a 3D puppet theater. We built two physical controller devices that manipulate 3D characters in real-time. The aim was to built a prototype for a multiuser space, where many people can login, get assigned a 3D character, and control your character however you'd like so that you can, for example, perform a short play using the characters.

This project was in collaboration with Michael Wilson, Todd Holoubek, and others. I did the multiuser and network programming and also performed for the presentations.

Presented by the Guild Complex Chicago and the Chopin Theater, 'Endlessism' was a show consisted of experimental music and videos by 6 musicians and 6 video artists. I curated and mixed the video set.

In collaboration with Actually, Records.
