The Creators Project Staff

You may have noticed our new online Gallery. It’s a place where creative professionals can showcase their portfolio of work, gain exposure, build their network, find collaborators, and become eligible for funding opportunities like The Studio. It’s also a place where fans of cutting edge creative work can discover new artists and inspiring projects. Each week we’ll be selecting a few of our favorites and bringing you the best of what The Creators Project community has to offer. To have your work featured, submit your tech-powered projects to the Gallery.

Sophia Sobers: Connected Bodies

Sophia Sobers is an American artist who uses photography, coding, web cameras, 3D animations, as well as more traditional tools like paint and ink to realize her work. Like the title alludes to, Connected Bodies connects man with technology, creating a dialogue between user and screen. The interactive installation reflects your subtle body movements through projections by using a motion tracking camera and color detection. Can you paint with all the colors of the wind?

Jonathan Gales: BULB

The mildly disturbing protagonist in Jonathan Gales’ BULB seems to be going through some sort of withdrawal, whether it be physical or emotional is up for debate. The person in question ambles down the block in obvious distress, but when he gets home and pulls a light switch, the setting shifts from realistic to virtual in the blink of an eye. We won’t completely give away the ending, but we’ve never seen a lightbulb break so gracefully.

Jonathan Blair: 12 Random Patterns

Don’t let the processed insect-like soundtrack to Jonathan Blair’s video lead you astray. Each of the twelve aberrations was created through a cycle of projection mapping in Maya, with a soundtrack composed from processing the image data through Audacity—explaining the glitchy noises. The way they’re all complied all into one video makes each visual soundscape appear to take on a life of its own… almost if Victor Frankenstein himself was the creator.
