Media Design - mobile app / dual screen system

I Agree to the Terms

NYU Skirball Season / Streaming from MITU580 2022 

I Agree To The Terms was developed by The Builders Association in collaboration with a community of microworkers who perform "Human Intelligence Tasks" for micro payments on Amazon's "Mechanical Turk" platform.

We developed a mobile website, modeled on social science research conducted on the platform, where the audience competed with each other with respect to the accuracy and speed of their answers. The show was performed on Zoom with the audience simultaneously using their phones to access the app and compete with each other, so they could feel a bit of the euphoria and dread these workers face everyday in this automated workplace.

Designed for and about the internet, the production needs to be experienced online and is a prime example of remote theatre at its most innovative and engaging. Imbued with humor, I Agree To The Terms confronts the dark horrors of capitalism without any semblance of preaching. It’s digital theatre at its best: profoundly human.

Projection Design


by George Frideric Handel

Pittsburgh Opera 2019 

Textaline backed art-deco screens designed by Cary Xu served to both catch the imagery and allow the conductor, orchestra and performers to be selectively revealed. We used an existing staircase to position Semele for her ascention into heavan, and her eventual immolation by fire as she is granted her wish to see Jove in his true godlike form. 

She sings: Ah me! Too late I now repent.....

Media Design - Augmented Reality Development

ELEMENTS OF OZ - The Builders Association

Workshop @ Montclaire State University Jan 12-17, 2015.
Premiere in September 2015 @ Monclaire State University - Peak Performances
3-Legged Dog Art & Technology Center 2016
Shanghai Interactive Theater Festival 2017
NYU Skirball Center 2019

We developed a smartphone "app" that generated augmented reality imagery and spatialized sound (tornado, flying monkeys, munchkins laughing, etc.), as well as played back synchronized videos, creating both an intimate and immersive experience for the audience. During development we came to see the phones "as Oz" - something we use everyday, but whose operations we can't explain, and which we are even legally prevented from "looking behind the curtain" to understand.
