Description

Games! Of a couple different types, but right now mostly things involving a frankly ludicrous display of buttons. Previous work featured a ludicrous amount of flagging tape and LED wire. There's perhaps a trend there.

History

#1000ButtonProject

Currently I am working on a project tentatively named the #1000ButtonProject. It is a series of prototypes of increasing size featuring arcade controllers with a obscene amount of buttons. Early prototypes have included 16 and then 100 buttons, but are growing in size based on the amount of buttons I purchase and recieve.

Previously "dream a bit bigger darling"

Prior to this project, I have worked on a large meditative piece known as 'dream a bit bigger darling.' dbbd was a relaxing bed installation, the size of a twin sized bedstead, that featured over 1000 meters of flagging tape hanging in a wave formation and lit with LED wire. The final project used a ultrasonic range finder to show movement on the strands, changing the color of the exhibition based on the rapid action of the users lying down.
