Steampunk Tree House

Built in 2007, in collaboration with lead artist Sean Orlando, and the crew that has subsequently became known as Five Ton Crane. The Steampunk Tree House is a large-scale inmmersive environment, built in a style reminiscent of the Victorian-age writings of H.G. Wells and Jules Verne. As a core crew member, my personal contribution to the project spanned general fabrication, lighting design, solar & electrical systems, and general logistical management. Following several public installations, the Tree House was sold to the Dogfish Head Brewing Co., of Milton Delaware, where it now adorns the front of their new brewery headquarters.

The Neuron Chamber

Built in 2008, under the direction of Lead Artist Alan Rorie, The Neuron Chamber is a high-voltage, kinetic exploration of the intersection of art and science. Comprised of forged steel and glass, and making use of three, 15,000 volt transformers, viewers can see a physical manifestation of human biochemistry. My contributions included general fabrication, electrical systems and general logistics. The Neuron Chamber has been widely shown, including Maker Faire, The Sonoma County Museum, and Lightwave 2009 at the Science Gallery, Trinity College, Dublin Ireland ;

The Raygun Gothic Rocketship

Acting as Co-Lead Artist, and with the support of the Five Ton Crane crew, I built the Rocketship in 2009. In the style of 1930′s & 40′s sci fi, the Rocketship is a retro-futurist future-rustic vernacular between yesterday’s tomorrow and the future that never was. Standing 40 feet tall, with 3 fully interactive decks, the Rocketship has made several landings, at Yuri’s Night at NASA Ames, and at Maker Faire. The ship, and it’s newest addition, the Rocket Stop, is currently providing local & inter-system transport systems, from Pier 14, on the San Francisco Embarcadero;
