This show was a pop-up out of body experience clinic that blended into the other storefronts of the Lower East Side in Manhattan. Guests would make an appointment here or walk in. When you showed up you would wait for awhile on the top floor of the gallery, watch The Bob Monroe 24/7 Out of Body Experience News Network (full video below) and enjoy a coffee. Then you were taken downstairs by a docent and given a virtual reality headset that would take you out of your body for around 8 minutes.

A pop-up Out of Body Experience Clinic is opening for the month of April in 2015 at 143b Orchard in New York City. I’m really excited to be doing the art in the waiting room and I made this promotional trailer. It will be walk-ins or by appointment. The experiences will be free and there is free coffee while you wait. That’s all I know so far. Here is more info on their webpage: http://outofbodyexperience.clinic
Here is a link to larger digital images, titles and sizes of the c-prints that are in the show. They were made mostly in Cinema4d. Printed by Ernst at richardprints.biz in Brooklyn. Mounted on dibond in Texas.
4 Proposals for a Pavilion at the Historical Society of Atmos Village, 2014
This is a piece for a 40 foot table for the Brooklyn Artists Ball . There are 16 dioramas inside junction boxes randomly lit up with different colored LEDs. Inside each diorama is a 3d print and a lenticular image in the background. There are also plexi tubes that pulse on and off, video screens as pools, and a lot of landscapes spread across the plinth. All the wiring for the lights goes through EMT conduit and meets up at the end where it is controlled with an Arduino.
