Personal Theatrical Trajectories (Past, Present, Future)

I like to characterize my experiences and interests in terms of what I focused on in undergrad (University of Washington School of Drama), professional theatre (as a professional Seattle stagehand), and in graduate school (Purdue University Computer Graphics Technology). The following three slides capture the most important projects, gigs, and research I was involved in during these three phases of my life.

Ultimate Stage App (USA).

Papers, demo videos, and a book are being written by TJ detailing the concept, framework, and application for an Ultimate Stage App (USA). The Ultimate Stage concept is a hybrid-reality “mirror world stage” technique that combines real and virtual presentational spaces using mobile mixed reality, attention-aware systems, and location-based services.

Rooby Bloosby (an alter-ego who wears virtual masks) was created to host various public mirror world events as well as perform in Ultimate Stage performances. To view current and past BlogCasts, goto the Bloosby BlogCast Page on Google+.
