As part of the Zebbler Studios team, I helped design and produce the live visual stage performance for musical performing artist, Sphongle. My work focused on fabrication of the projection-mapped surfaces, and the design and fabrication of the LED-driven infinite mirrors and contour lines.

A pixel-pusher micro-controller board receives video passed from Resolume Arena via Syphon and Processing, and pushes it out to over 2300 individually-addressable RGB LED's, making them completely in sync with Zebbler's projection-mapped animation content.

The design is completely modular, as it must be packed and shipped across the US on a tour bus, then reconstructed each night by assistants from each city that have never seen it before. Coming up with a solution that was functional and easily understandable proved to be a difficult challenge, but was ultimately an extremely valuable learning experience.
