The mobile version of the Galileo Drawings App is called simply Touch The Sun after the exhibition that sparked the idea for it. Touchscreen drawing possibilities are what first sparked my interest in creating a drawing-driven interaction for the Solar Dynamics Observatory images.
This desktop application was designed for Chabot Space and Science center. Users are presented with recent images from the Solar Dynamics Observatory and prompted to make guided observations, using their fingers on the touchscreen to draw the features they see.
This is the main user interface for an exhibition at Chabot Space and Science Center. It is driven largely by imagery from the Solar Dynamics Observatory: a NASA mission in orbit broadcasting stunning imagery of the Sun back to Earth.
Building on the idea that musicians are artists and should be presented in a fashion similar to gallery artists, I created a graphic identity for Anaphylactic that would support this vision visually.

Martha Angus called me once again and commissioned me to create a very special Christmas gift: from a wife to a husband to be placed at the very top of the stairs of a home in San Francisco’s Pacific Heights.
Richard alerted us to the stunning imagery developed by Akiyoshi Kitaoka and his associates. These images appear to move, swirl and crawl; and this effect was highlighted by the simple treatment of attaching them to a recognizable door. It was clearly just paper, and still they moved.
