Project 1 of 3
Delta Photon Shower
The Photon Shower was created to help Delta Air Lines show their commitment to sleep as a priority for weary travelers. Working with Oxford Professor Russell Foster, we invented a first-of-its-kind jet lag treatment device. Taking the form of a tall, walk-in chamber, the Photon Shower provides doses of blue light that actually help your body clock adjust more quickly to a new time zone. Users input their travel info via touchscreen and are given a personalized treatment plan, guided by calming ambient music and custom narration. We premiered a working prototype of the Photon Shower at TED 2013 in Long Beach, California and the reaction was immediate: earned media coverage included Fast Company, The Daily Mail, Huffington Post and CNN.

Project 3 of 3
Psychobuildings frontman Peter LaBier's stage presence is defined by his unique dancing style. For the music video for his song "Wonderchamber," we wanted to emphasize and explore the movement of his dancing body. Using a kaleidoscopic compositing technique, we turned raw footage shot in his art studio into swirling biological choreography. The video premiered on Vice.com, who paid us the following compliment: "...our primary reason for wanting to premiere their new video for "Wonderchamber" is because we were really happy about all the body rolls and other various dance movements that happen in it. Dancing. You know? Just move your body around. Go nuts."
