Flying People in New York City

Gear  |  Projects
To market the soon-to-be-released coming of age superpowers story Chronicle, Fox hired viral marketing agency Thinkmodo to deliver a campaign. Three human shaped RC planes were flown around New York City, Lots of fun.
"Since the three main characters of the movie have the ability to fly, we came up with the idea of staging a few "flying people" sightings around NYC. We achieved that illusion by having 3 custom-made aircraft (which were shaped like human beings) fly above designated areas in NYC and NJ."

Basic House designed by Barcelona based designer Martin Azua. It's basically an lightweight balloon that can be carried in your pocket and used for shelter.

Still Life - Scott Garner

Gear  |  Projects
Wrote Garner on his website: "Still Life is an interactive gallery piece that takes traditional still life painting into the fourth dimension with a motion-sensitive frame on a rotating mount. Years ago I had the idea of a still life painting that wasn't so still, but could never quite wrap my head around how to build it. After various experiments and explorations, I settled on Unity 3D as the ideal tool to make it happen.
On the hardware side is a custom-framed television connected to a rotating mount. Attached to the back of the television is a spatial sensor. On the software side is a simple C application to communicate with the sensor and feed the data to a Unity 3D scene
The scene itself consists of a camera tied to the sensor data with all lights and objects parented to it so they rotate in unison."

“As people were walking out of the school, it was clear that it was the best vibe in the school that had been there all year,” said broadcasting teacher Daniel Whitt. “Everyone was high fiving. People were smiling at each other. People were saying, ‘Hey man loved your sign.’”
