We were approached by Hush Studios (heyhush.com), an animation and design firm based in DUMBO, to work with them on a room in the 2011 Esquire House apartment. The annual Esquire House Project is an attempt to create ‘the ultimate bachelor pad,’ alternating between stunning homes in New York and Los Angeles each year. Hush’s concept for the Acura-sponsored home office of the future involved an interactive touch screen table that also served as a touch activated synthesizer. We utilized videomapping techniques to activate the table’s surface and produce the visual and aural touch-reactivity in real time (the sonic component wasn’t plugged in to any speakers when we shot this).
Working with several creative partners, including architecture firm Third Eye Studios (thirdeyestudiosnyc.com) and recent University of Georgia alum Brian McGaw, the dynamic team spearheaded by Hush created a singular experience destined to be the talk of this year’s Esquire House Project events.
Thanks also to Digital Projection International (digitalprojection.com) for providing us with a dVision series projector, it was the perfect tool for the job! And to our friends at Cornerstone Conservation (cornerstoneconservation.com) for their innovative and thorough installation job.
