Rara Avis, 2012
Interactive animation for live musical performance in three movements
Dimensions: variable

Winner of the Ammerman Center for Arts and Technology Commission
The interactive video animations for Rara Avis are composed of a series of illusions mined from records of clinical experiments
ranging as far back as 1861. These illusions are characterized by visually perceived stimuli that differs from objective reality.
Their perception may vary from person to person due to the idiosyncrasies of individual visual pathways but also for other reasons
that are not fully understood.
