PixelPyros is all about bringing fireworks closer to the audience, rather than lighting the touch paper and standing well back. This large scale projection with motion detection allowed you to create rockets simply by waving your hands around.

Lunar Trails

Lunar Trails is an interactive installation, first commissioned by the Dublin Science Gallery for their GAME exhibition, running to January 18th 2013.

It features a full size arcade cabinet running the vintage 1979 game Lunar Lander. As you play the game, the path that you take is rendered on the wall with a large hanging drawing robot.

The trails build up to produce artworks that are solely created by the game players, and is a reflection of all their individual journeys to the surface of the moon.

Recreating the old fashioned side show with an 80s arcade laser style and modern Nerf guns. Inspired by my Margate Games residency for the GEEK Festival.

I’ll be continuing to work on this throughout 2012 and there’ll be a couple of very large scale tests. More info on the PixelPhones project page.
