Art + Invention | P. G. Johnson

As the phrase "lightspace modulator" and the associated historical reference suggest, a primary component of this process is the use of light, shadow and objects ("light props"), arranged, animated, and automated in a realtime three-dimensional environment (a virtual "electric stage" powered by custom software).

Traditional photographic, animation and post-production techniques are represented, as well.

Exhibitions and performance venues have included the Museum of Modern Art, New York; Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, California; Ombra Festival, Barcelona; Boston Cyberarts Festival + Independent Film Festival, and clubs and theaters in the US and Europe.
