https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IUwZY-nKedk In August, 2005, I performed a new work: “Autocosm: Gardens of Thuban”. I consider this one of my breakthrough artworks. I had been developing and presenting my graphic performances for a couple of years prior to this event, and this was a quantum leap for me, technically and creatively. I premiered this piece for the annual SIGGRAPH convention, which was at
J-Walt’s creates Lucid Dreamscapes in performance, creating fantastic worlds that he controls in real-time! It’s a theatrical experience, a shared virtual reality that brings audiences on a visual musical odyssey. Here’s the latest video which demonstrates these performances.

City of Dreams 360: Lucid Dreamscape of the Week! Real-time creation of a futuristic city! Watch as I create a 3D cityscape and explore the new space. You can see my sparkly cursor moving around draw the futuristic buildings. This is a brief excerpt from a show I perform live. I performed something like this last weekend, though I evolved
Genetic Mainspring: Lucid Dreamscape of the week! “Genetic Mainspring” is a piece that I have performed many times live in my planetarium concerts. It’s an imagining of how long-chain molecules dance and play to the tick-tock of a clock. Is this how organic molecules dance when we’re not looking? Another way of perceiving this piece is how I “dance about
Fractal Networking: Lucid Dreamscape of the week! A branching fractal network. Only an extensive tour of a fractal geometry can give you the idea of its true dimension. This is just a brief glimpse. Notice that in this fractal there is far more empty space than filled space. I use this metaphor to describe how technology has branches, but most
Fantasy in 360: Instant World #937 Lucid Dreamscape of the week! Infinity can fit into small places. There is no limit to how small or deep or detailed we can get. Each choice is another dimension to explore. In this sketch, I’m demonstrating some techniques I’ve invented to create a little world within a arabesque sphere. I’m drawing the matrix,
Happy 4th of July! A transformative sketch for this week’s holiday! Fireworks transform into dandelions! Joy spreads like weeds! A tip of the hat to composers Sousa and Ives, for the inspiration for the “Stars and Stripes Trance” idea that you can hear toward the end. Be safe and sane with your psychedelic and explosive adventures! This is a recording
For this week’s 360 video sketch, I’m demonstrating some hand-crafted artisanal fractals! I sculpted, designed, and performed this world in real-time, set to my original music. I’m drawing the trees in the performance while I fly through the world. The trees grow generatively with the duplication of each gestural stroke.
A graphic world for this week’s 360 video sketch. I sculpted, designed, and performed this world in real-time, set to my original music. The graphic inspiration was Pepperland from “The Yellow Submarine”, which still looks fresh 50 years later. The music is my cover of “The Mexican” by the prog-rock band Babe Ruth. The original 1972 track had that groovy guitar
I’ll be creating and celebrating new worlds in the dome of the Fujitsu Planetarium at De Anza College in Cupertino, California. June 3, July 8, October 7, and November 4. Tickets are available here!
Designed and performed in my real-time system. I flew through space while drawing the spirals, then created the world around them, finishing with another flight down the middle.
Get immersed in live improvised virtual realities! I’m getting ready to perform at the Jena Fulldome Festival in Jena, Germany on May 18. The following week, I’ll be performing in the newly renovated Planetarium Hamburg on May 23. And in June, I return to De Anza College in Cupertino, California for show in their planetarium on June 3.
