Jellyfish 12000 at Poor Yorick’s Open Studio

September 24, 2009 at 1:26 am (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , )

I have been looking forward to a moment like this for quite some time.  A project I worked on is being shown at my favorite art gallery here in Salt Lake.

I have worked on a 2+ year large scale multimedia art project with some friends which is a giant moving piece of steel from the future.  It calls itself the “Jellyfish from the year 12,000”.  This beast is a work of steel which is covered in shimmering materials and thousands of LED lights.  These LEDs are programmed so that they can be controlled by a person on a touchscreen, or from audio or from computer generated animations.

I personally contributed in some of the software which controls this lighting system and it’s a project that I am very proud of.  There were a lot of people with a huge amount of talent and expertise who worked on this and since it’s always hard for me to describe what this project really IS, please click here to watch a video and see for yourself :
