Identity re-design project for Warp Records, a London-based independent music label who represents experimental, alternative and electronic musicians throughout the U.S. and Europe. The brand is transformative, adaptable across a variety of media platforms, while also providing a subtle nod to the alternative nature of the Warp sound.
The final goal of the project was to produce an Identity Guideline Manual to maintain the focus of the brand throughout future Company projects.

ATMOSPHERE, WEATHER VISUALIZER
The Atmosphere, Weather Visualizer is a mobile application that uses an rss feed to produce a dynamic visualization of current weather conditions. Because weather is something we see and feel, the purpose of the app is to interpret data into an abstract visual experience, intended to elicit an emotional response based on the flow and color of the generated particles.
The app was created for the Institute For Figuring, whose focus is on the aesthetics within science and mathematics, and the figures that emerge when data is given form.
Technology is an art. With the evolution of digital platforms and creative-based programming, a plethora of interactive arts and experimentation has emerged into the cultural landscape as a stunning and ever-changing symphony of creative and intellectual achievement. It can be argued that the synergy between the arts and sciences has never been more compelling than it is today.

Omniterra is country without borders. It was developed in response to rapid climate change and a crisis of natural resources. It's citizens are nomadic and move about the world seeking highly particular climate conditions that allow for specific forms of agriculture and the generation of renewable resources (i.e. solar power, wind, hydro-power, etc).
Omniterrans are highly adaptable, not only to climate change but to other forms of culture since constant movement requires constant assimilation. As Omniterrans adapt to their changing surroundings, they learn the land, study the environment and cultural patterns in an attempt to have as little impact as necessary. The Omniterran culture has therefore emerged as an eclectic group, a patchwork of world culture, multilingual, highly intelligent and technologically advanced.

Collaboration with Bianca Fuchs.
Nothing is a paradox. Nothing exists because existence exists. It gives existence meaning, since if existence were truly absent, nothing could not exist. This project is an examination of "nothing" as a tangible thing; a thing that affects our environment and secures our existence.
We chose to work with the electromagnetic field for several reasons. Its properties, for instance, allow it to be contained, generated and, therefore, manipulated for our purposes. Through the use of ferrofluid, we've created a responsive environment that examines the differences between our predictable "known universe" and the unknown, unpredictable space that fills the in-between--the "nothingness", so to speak. The field is triggered when there is movement through the space, the ferrofluid rises and falls given the amount of activity and serves as observable evidence for the underlying change taking place.
