The ChronoScope is an installation for which
I designed and programmed interactive 3D component. The installation
was on view from December 9 through March 26 2005 at AXA Gallery
as part of the exhibition entitled At
The Crossroads of Desire: A Times Square Centennial,
curated by Max Page. Click

received Honorable Mention from I.D. Magazine Annual Design
Review 2005 in interactive category:
" A great example of collaboration between
architecture and design" - Allen Sayegh, I.D. Magazine
video of the project (3.75 MB Windows Media)
The project was lead by Jake Barton, the
principal of Local
Projects, NYC's award winning design studio. I was asked to
design a 3D environment of Times Square in which pictures from various
times would float as a reference point of where they were taken
in reality. I also programmed the interaction which is driven by
a touch screen allowing the viewer to choose the historical
pictures in the virtual Times Square and travel through the 3D environment
to view them. The project was created using mainly Anark
Studio, great software for interactive 3D multimedia applications.
The movie version of the project played on
the Jumbotron during the New Year's Eve celebration in Times Square.
