Built between 2009 and 2010. The helmet is primarily constructed out of plaster, wood, liquid epoxy, and spandex. The helmet utilizes rear projection in which a mini projector can be mounted at the rear of the helmet. Using various VJ software and Jitter (within MAX/MSP), I initially explored using various movies of my head, (which appears absurdly large through the helmet), and various short animations to be manipulated with various effects while I created music and sound. Overall, the helmet was very light and caused little burden on the performer.
Design aided by Rachel Stenman.
