Vantage

Telstra Vantage™   I’ve been involved in the delivery of Vantage for the past four years. It is a huge Telstra B2B event that is held at Melbourne convention centre each year in September. There is a massive amount of work that goes into delivering an event to this scale, but my primary focus has been on: The Digital Canopy. The physical build on this has changed from year to year, but essentially it’s a few massive LED screens that hang in the middle of the event about 6 meters above the floor. They display many different types of content, including event schedule information, videos, photo feeds, social media, weather information, news updates. This is all played through a bespoke digital signage application I first began to develop back in 2014. Theater Screens: These are placed outside each theater and display the upcoming sessions and speaker details and is built on the same system as the Canopy. InfoHubs / Wayfinding: Pretty self explanatory really, these are touch screens which allow users to view an indoor map of the event and search for exhibitors. Telstra Ventures: 2017 saw the introduction of this Kinect and iPad interactive which enabled participants to enter their contact details into an iPad application and then answer a series of questions via a Microsoft Kinect and then have relevant information emailed to...

Lendlease
Barangaroo Office

Lendlease – Barangaroo Office In 2016 Lendlease moved into their new HQ in Barangaroo, with this new location they wanted to create a contemporary and dynamic space for their employees and clients. To realize this we created 3 distinct creative concepts across 10 floors and over 50 screens. A stunning lobby installation the showcases Lendlease’s values, visions and placemaking expertise. An interactive timeline that displays Lendlease’s history and achievements. An internal communications platform with real time data for their employees. We then developed a bespoke digital signage platform to manage and update all of the content. Instead of going out to 3rd parties to create bespoke videos and animations every time they want to update their content they can now just log in, update the content inline, have a visual representation of what it’s going to look like, hit publish and all the displays are updated in a matter of seconds. From a technical perspective all the frontend applications where built with the haxe programming language. This allows us to compile to a number of desktop and mobile platforms, in this case Windows and iOS. Additionally it also allows us to compile down to javascript and run the same codebase within a browser, this is how we’re able to have a “what you see is what you get” editing within the CMS, which is incredibly useful and allows the user to preview they content before the publish on all the production...

GE Ecomagination Innovation Center, Masdar Making of the ecomagination Center in Masdar City, Abu Dhabi, UAE. The Feature Table compised of a 3D CNC milled model city which sits atop sixteen 55″ planar screens, and sits between two edge blending projectios and 5 touch screens applications, The touch screen applications sync the various components which work together to tell a sotry around GE products and how they can help companies, cities and even countries be more eco friendly and cost effective. We partnered with Electric Art and K&A Models to help bring our city to life. Electric Art is an internationally acclaimed retouching studio based in Surry Hills, Sydney. They were responsible for the creating the 3D modeling of the city. K&A Models are model makers based in China. Through the use of CNC milling, they were able to create over 1000 physical models.

Energy Footprint

Energy Footprint This was a simple interactive that was part of the GE Ecomagination Center in Masdar City. Engraved on metal plates it told the story of an average person’s energy footprint and was accompanied by a large LED wall that displayed ambient digital art that was generated from an array of Microsoft Kinects. 3D Space Distortion One is the hardest parts of the project was taking the data from all three Kinects and aligning them within the virtual space. To the left is a short video showing a debug view a program I built to help with this issue. Related Projects GE Masdar Centerpiece Peak Water Energy Inefficiency Emerging...
