Illuminate

Co-Creator/Creative Director

Photos illustrating some of the place settings in the expereince.

In early 2015 I was part of the creative team behind Illuminate, a interactive museum like experience that allowed you to explore the lives of 10 artists, inventors, and innovators that dealt with great hardship and difficulties during their lives. As guests entered the space they could choose which individual they wanted to listen to. They would then pull the light chord and the person would present their advice as their place settings would come to life. The total runtime of the experience was 37 minutes and was made on a $0 budget.

What does it take to become one of history’s greatest figures? What obstacles need to be overcome to go from rejected to celebrated?

Take a journey through the mind of some of the world’s most celebrated outcasts in this one of a kind experience.
