Infinite Cube: Installation by ART+COM
A kinetic installation that molds into a fluid succession of abstract shapes by following a computational narrative. An optical illusion, through the use of mirrors, extends the clear spatial confines into infinity but also reflects the viewers to add an additional layer to the interplay of the space.

If Only for a Second: A Project by the Mimi Foundation
A collaborative project with Leo Burnett France and photographer Vincent Dixon in which 20 cancer patients were invited to participate in a unique makeover experience but were asked to keep their eyes closed as they were being made up. The video shows the moment they opened their eyes and their reaction to the transformation which allowed them to forget their disease, if only for a second.
The project is available in book form which you can order here.

Nelson Mandela: Keyboard Portraits by Guy Whitby, aka WorkByKnight (WBK)
Photo-manipulated images of Nelson Mandela using buttons as pixels to form the final image. The buttons are from a mix of devices such as keyboards, calculators, typewriters and phones. A fitting tribute to a great man.
Having lived through the latter half of the 20th century and now into the 21st-century one of the biggest transitions in my life has been the technological evolution from an analog foundation to a digital platform. My youth was spent without computers or mobile phones yet the transition to them being such a vital part of my life seemed effortless and mandatory. Only now as our world becomes touchscreen dependent do I reminisce upon the buttons I used to push. Perhaps I will miss pushing buttons when they are all gone? Perhaps in the push of a button there was something more tangible than the brushing of a touchscreen. Though buttons to me also suggest the en masse world in which we currently live. They are made in factories in their hundreds of thousands they are not unique, they are not special. And now these buttons are relics of an analog age. Perhaps I draw a parallel between discarded analog devices and my own mortality. For I too one day will become discarded and irrelevant, just as my once treasured Sony Walkman was reverentially discarded.

Wyoming Wildscapes II: Time-lapse by Nicolaus Wegner
Beautiful time-lapse of the landscape of Wyoming but what makes this video stand out is the spectacular weather phenomenon he captured, which starts at around the 4 minute mark.
This project was created for two reasons. My love for Wyoming and all of the beautiful landscapes and wild weather it has to offer. And my interest in sharing that view with those around me. Watching the stars at night high in the mountain wilderness, experiencing a meteor shower in the lower basins, having a supercell spinning directly overhead on the high plains, watching lightning play across the hills and prairies, trying to stand up against 60mph ground blizzard creating winds in the dead of winter, all the while spending much of that time with the love of my life, my amazing and ever patient wife...that is how I quantify this endeavor.
