It’s been a while since I have done a project solely for the sake of it existing. Needless to say, I’m thrilled at how it turned out

Intelligent lighting/art design for architecture, venues, and events
This installation was a collaboration with Greco Decor for Club LIGHT in Las Vegas, a night club owned by Cirque du Soleil. The original installation was completed about a year and a half ago and we just finished a major update to the system. It is now completely controlled via an iPad running a Lemur OSC interface, effects, parameters, and colors can be manipulated on the fly. The interface was designed to allow the club to easily and quickly create a vibe specific to the event/client they are hosting in their space. The is done by allowing for easy color palate creation/manipulation to match corporate/holiday colors as well as on the fly effect creation and manipulation.
We gust got back from what is hands down our favorite festival… Enchanted Forest. It is a small and intimate gathering with a strong emphasis on dance, healing, transformation, and overall just taking good care of yourself and your body. We were brought on to do a major Lighting upgrade for the Enchanted Forest dance floor centerpiece, a Giant glowing Flower of Life Sculpture which is normally hung over the dance floor to illuminate all of the dancers. Due to an unexpected venue change and lack of tree infrastructure for hanging the flower was not able to be suspended in the air this year, so instead, we broke it up into 7 individual seed of life pieces and surrounded the dance floor with them.
The fiberflies create a multi dimensional light show, sensually snaking and dancing across your body while simultaneously enveloping you in a cloud of playful pixie points of bright light. Sold individually.
New Features for FiberFlies version 2.0:
- Smooth swivel: our 2.0 design allows full 360 degree motion! This enables a whole new way to play: creating swirling helixes of pure galactic magic! All the ways you played with our last version flow smoother.
- A brighter product: each point is brighter and there are more of them.
- Better Fibers: more fibers give you a more substantial feel. Higher quality fiber makes them more durable: less tangle, smoother play.
- 1 year warranty
- Runs on 3 AAAs – 3 alkaline batteries included per FiberFly.
NOTE: We generally recommend rechargeable batteries, and you can use rechargeable NiMHs with your FiberFlies. However this version has not been optimized for rechargeables and will run slightly brighter with disposable alkaline batteries, which have a slightly higher voltage.
DO NOT use Li-ion AAA batteries! They have 3x the voltage and will destroy the FiberFlies light unit!
We had the infinite pleasure of getting to do a lighting design collaboration with Visionary Artist Carey Thompson on his Honorarium Project for the Burning Man Center Camp.
Resonate Creative Labs and PhotonicBliss teamed up again, this time to create an amazing installation for Acura’s ILX Hybrid premiere along with their Promotional tour with Indie Rock band Metric. Together with a multinational team of brilliant minds we created stunning fusion of art and technology embedding LEDs and projectors seamlessly into the frame of the ILX to create a 360° digital media surface with live sound reactive lighting.
We’ve been cooking up some big stuff over at the PhotonicBliss labs and we are very proud to announce that we just finished our first overseas production run of our FiberFlies fiber optic dance toy (previously called the Electron Cloud). We are sooo excited about this batch, not only are we upping the production quality of this product we have also added the feature of being able to unscrew the fiber optic light source allowing you to use it as a versatile and color changing flashlight. This screw off top will also allow for the future addition of expansions to your fiberflies including different fiber types, mood lighting fixtures etc.
To top it off we are now partnered with the amazing beings over at flowtoys and they will now be our exclusive online dealer. Get your pair today direct from flowtoys!
This year for South by Southwest, Resonate Studios and PhotonicBliss partnered to create an full on experience of light sound and vibration for BandPage HQ. This was hands down the most epic venue at SxSW. It was an amazing experience that tested the limits of what can be created in just a few weeks time with the right crews… Success!
The in early March PhotonicBliss traveled down to Uvita Costa Rica to share out illumination with Envision Festival 2012. We were a part of this amazing gathering last year as well and were blessed to get to play and create in the jungle again with the amazing and world class Envision Crew. Check out the gallery below for a peek of some of the magic that was created!
