Designed to shift our perception of the conventional image by making simple interactivity accessible, Collide is a code-free creative tool and social platform for gif-artists, animators, illustrators and designers. Like a digital age spin on Walt Disney's 1937 Multiplane camera, Collide utilizes gyroscope data to add pseudo-real parallax to layers of both still and moving images.

Concept: A vast collection of portraits submitted by people globally through an app, lets the user see a semi abstract visualization of the people in their neighborhood, city, country or continent. As more contributors submit portraits and location data, the overall 'definition' of the visualization expands.
Yes, simulations of facial feature similarities have been done before, but never as a social celebration of diversity and interconnectivity.

An experimental software created with a gallery environment in mind, this ongoing project developed in Max/MSP Jitter has a simple two button interface allowing the user to interact with a curated list of youtube clips. A grid of overlapping displays with incremental playback delay accentuates the movement and timing of each scene.
JumpEditor 2 (in progress) will introduce a record function capturing the user interaction, overwriting the original content. This will eventually lead to increasingly fragmented user created and visuals.
