The Modern Woman gallery for the American Woman exhibit at The Metropolitan Museum of Art (05/10 – 08/10)
As part of the 3-Legged Dog media team, I was responsible for design and management of video and photo content for the immersive 360° video installation for the Costume Institute’s annual gala and exhibition. The Modern Woman gallery was created in collaboration with creative agency Laird + Partners and Curator Andrew Bolton.

The Germ Project + Goldor $ Mythyka (05/11 – 07/11, 01/13-03/13)
Along with projection designer Jared Mezzocchi, I created original video design for a dynamic set which was the home to four plays that created one cohesive experience, produced by New Georges. Each of the directors and writers had never worked with video and projection before, so we supported them in visually shaping their narratives. The video content programmed through Isadora™, also using live-feed camera, After Effects animations, and green screen shoots. I was responsible for content design, interfacing with creative team, and managing assistants. One of the plays developed into a full production, which we designed as well.

The Diary of a Teenage Girl, the play based on a graphic novel (02/10 – 05/10)
As Assistant Video Designer to C. Andrew Bauer (Fela, Fêtes de la Nuit), I created original video content and animations for a 360° set with custom cut out screens for a multimedia play produced by Aaron Louis and New Georges. I was responsible for managing data and show cues, and coordinating with Isadora™ programmer for 15-channel surround video design. I also created video for production benefit event, Beyond Funderdome, featuring the cast and writers of Saturday Night Live. The team received a 2010 Hewes Design Award Nomination for Notable Effects and was featured in Lighting & Sound Magazine. The script adapted into a screenplay by director Marielle Heller opened at Sundance Film Festival 2015.
“The overall effect is of the strong, blunt colors of a manga cartoon, the paradigmatic aesthetic of teenage girls learning to discern shades of gray.” -Jason Fitzgerald, Theater Reviewer, Backstage
Why Aren’t You Naked? – a redhot media art exhibition (07/09 – 10/09)
To generate new audience and clients, the team at 3-Legged Dog created a multimedia exhibition presenting an array of provocative still and moving imagery generated from the art + technology center’s prolific experimental productions. I was an integral part of content creation and management, projection design and programming, and marketing. The collection included HD panoramic video projections, multimedia sculptures, large format prints and high resolution video installations.
