Jordan Reece Halsey
I am a Los Angeles based video artist. I have a deep interest in technology, form, simulation, patterns, and image. I have been luck to have designed and created works for Madonna, Michael Jackson, Walt Disney, and many others. I have always strived to be at the forefront of emerging technologies and an early advocate of projection-mapping and virtual reality. I was involved in the seminal Amon Tobin “Isam 2.0” Tour, a groundbreaking example of the merger of art and technology. Recently I have been concentrating on the world of Virtual and Augmented Reality. I am deeply interested in real-time development, multi-camera filmmaking, generative design, interactive installation, and how artificial intelligence can alter an affect our work. I was the first person to use Lytro’s light-field camera in full production that included the integration of CGI and Light-field. As a technical Director I have worked on research and development with Google, Qualcomm, Intel and others on the merger of technology, installation and art. I am fascinated with building pipelines with Houdini and Touchdesigner. I am currently an Adjunct Professor at the USC School of Cinematic Arts where I teach generative animation and projection mapping.
