I had the opportunity to collaborate with two very talented and dear friends, Lisa Mishima and Yvonne Mouser. We were invited to take part in Root Division’s annual fundraiser event TASTE. Working with the exhibit theme ALCHEMY, we designed an interactive experience that transformed light and liquid into choreographed concoctions. With the help of our friends at Tekamaki, we had a custom built “light table” (an LCD monitor without polarization) and served three drinks in magic glasses that revealed imagery and animation through the bottom of the glass.
Inspired by alchemy and mythical potions, Spirit Phenomena is about chemistry and magic. It combines performance, technology, and spirits to turn the ordinary into the extraordinary, enhancing flavors and experience using motion, illumination, color and time. We called these Elixirs To Heal Your Modern Ailments.
