Named after Memex, Vannevar Bush’s 1939 proposal for an electromechanical information storage and retrieval devce, MOMEX is a speculative interface for storing, replaying, and sharing momes—moments and memories crafted into 3D augmented reality.

Many of the experiences designed today for augmented and mixed reality rely on spectacle—whether for gaming or entertainment—or perform a didactic function as enhanced wall text for exhibitions or for wayfinding through public spaces. In contrast, this project illustrates holistic mixed-reality interventions that engage us in emotional and psychological ways, whether for healing or for forging deeper connections with digital worlds and the people that inhabit them.

Like natural memories in the brain, momes might be functional: instructional details or steps in a process, such as the recall of a recipe or a workout. They might be mnemonic images that remind us of personal or cultural rituals or they might be diaries of the self. Or momes might be extended emotional narratives that enable the recollection of cherished moments or the processing of difficult or traumatic experiences.

The Occlusion Layer employs augmented reality’s ability to reveal immersive visual and sound experiences to enable the exploration of hidden histories of Los Angeles, which are occluded by plaques throughout the city. Through the Snapchat app or Snap Spectacles, viewers of The Occlusion Layer will discover AR “floats” made of paper that represent key moments of hidden LA history.

By attempting to make digital video feel more tactile, I have developed a new approach to a holographic style of 3D, which I call "lenticular video." While the examples of lenticular video shown in my portfolio are crafted through layering and editing, I am currently prototyping both software and hardware approaches to automating it, whether for conducting digital conversations or for presenting dimensionality of objects in a low-cost way.

I have long been interested in esoteric healing practices, especially those related to physics—such as the way that acupuncture might target electrical channels in the body or how contemporary homeopathy assumes to target the human energy field. While we have long designed chemical and biological medicines, we have had limited success harnessing the energy of the electromagnetic spectrum. Project Health is a speculative exploration of a new healing modality that harnesses light and sound to heal the sicknesses of the digital age.
