I am an artist who infuses interactive games and social networking tools into virtual, robotic, and/or 3d projection installations. A recent multi-faith sanctuary was in the form of a virtual sanctuary with our team's Interactive games. “Criss~Crossing The Divine” was exhibited at Guild Hall Art Museum summer 2014. Robotic Devotees-in-motion invited people to play the technology team’s interactive games. Using interactive wands, they curate and prioritize their individual topic selections to search and personally receive corresponding texts from our database's 46,000 scriptures culled from five diverse Faiths. Other installations and 3D projections are excavations designed to stretch commonly accepted definitions by blurring edges between solid and fictive places questioning the real-to-reel. Some video projections depict environmental upheavals caused by the aftermath of unpredictable global warming weather conditions. One version, displayed at the Museum Quarter in Vienna, used the museum space as a site-specific display to create "Global Warming Bursting Seams". Collaborations with global teams include an interactive film game “The Third Woman”, “Crossings”, at the Thessaloniki Biennale, Greece ’09, and Truth Or Consequences” at ISEA2012--the latter using QR code projections to activate a series of audience responses to ethical questions about global warming and the associated environmental dilemmas we face today.
