Description:

I directed the production and development of Predictive Engineering 3's modern infrastructure, and oversaw the operation while the exhibit was open to the public from July to November 2016. Working closely with the artist, curator, and exhibitions teams at SFMOMA, I ensured a successful launch for the high visibility reopening of the museum.
I worked closely with artist Julia Scher over a year to bring her vision into an updated form by incorporating current, relevant technologies.

The completed work consisted of:

  • Custom observation network in and around the museum consisting of 12 cameras operated by the work

  • A tiny, hidden automated A/V control booth to control the many sources of media streams used in the work

  • 12 custom sensors to detect visitor's presence within the gallery

  • Custom audio and video effects to process the many sources of media streams in real time

  • Text message delivery service which allowed visitors to receive daily messages extending the experience beyond the museum
