I made a few updates, enjoy!
Numbers at Sonar Festival

For the record label Numbers I built a music visualizer app for the stage projection. Collaborating with Thomas Traum and Remote Location, we created a dozen scenes that could be controlled over the course of the show.

The app was built using the Unity3D platform. Since it ran real-time, we were able to switch camera angles, objects, and scenes instantly with the live music.

Economist Thinking Spaces 2011

To follow up on the success of our 2010 Thinking Space site, we at Hi-ReS! wanted to open up the concept into a community. Launching on both desktop and iPhone platforms, one can contribute their own thinking spaces across the globe. With the phone version, one can snap a photo, record audio about the space, provide a text description, and instantly upload it to the community.

My role ranged from design & art direction for the iPhone version, to prototyping and development for the desktop version.

Popclock

An interactive hourglass, designed to be something that you can leave going while your iPhone or iPad is inactive. At midnight (00:00:00) your clock is completely empty. Seconds, represented by small dots, begin to appear. These combine to become minutes, and then minutes become hours. By the end of the day, your screen is completely filled.

SetGrid

A better way to showcase imagery. Viewers can explore using a Google Maps style of navigation. Pan, zoom through the images, use tags for a linear navigation, or reorder based on date. Provide each image with a date and tags, the app does the rest.

The project is open-source and available at https://github.com/miketucker/setgrid

Initially a Hello World of sorts using OpenFrameworks, Filip over at Creative Applications thought it'd be a good release for his new CAN app label, which is where it sits today.

At the time I was a junior designer for Big Spaceship and had not yet completed college. The site features a variety of illustration, photography, video experiments, and my particular favorite-- a web community called NowGoCreate. At its peak, the community had over 1,000 members. It was developed by Rich Mulhern and myself.
