“Gravity Free & Reality-Independent” unveils creative & academic projects, artwork, photography, animation, drawing, creative concept, exhibit designs, Imagination Workshops enthused by Gravity Free & Reality Independent ideation.

As an artist/designer/director I created imaginative concepts, designs, art, innovative solutions, proposals and short animated films for: MTV, SCI-FI, Smithsonian, Nickelodeon, ABC, NBC, Ajinomoto, VIASA, PBS, HBO, AT&T, NGS, FX/M, UNICEF, BIC, Noggin, Showtime, Sesame and others. Many won international awards. SIGGRAPH Electronic Theatre presented 3 of my films. I won a Guggenheim Fellow and Jerome Foundation grant. My photography was exhibited at MvVO Arts ‘20 @ the Oculus, Westfield World, NYC. Recently I presented “Imagine” @ EIS ’21 Emerging Innovation Summit, Australia: In April I was invited to exhibit @ VIDAK ‘22 International Invitation Poster Exhibition, Seoul, Korea. In May I joined Villa-R International Artist Residency, Sicily. From June 11 – Oct 11 my artwork is being exhibited at the Human Rights AIAPI – UNESCO exhibition, Italy. In Sept. I will exhibit my art, photography, drawing, as well as conduct a Master Class @ MAPS – Qatar International Art Festival ‘22. Associated article is being published in the ARTVENTUROUS Magazine AM, fall issue #31, Art & Design.

In the academic career I designed, directed, consulted to and established new creative programs at: Pratt; Columbia U; RMCAD, where I founded “International Animation” and ASIFA-CO; and CCS where I was granted full professor. Invited by NTU, I spearheaded curriculum and building design for the new School of Art, Design & Media. Then also oversaw launch of the School of Technology for the Arts, both in Singapore. As Visiting Professor I was invited to Kadir Has, Istanbul; Kyoto University, Japan and, as endowed KoGuan Chair, to Beijing University. In both creative and academic projects, I forever focus on inspiring imagination, self-discovery, experimentation, ideation sparking empowerment and hunger for creative self-expression.

I see imagination as the Origin of inspiration, individuality, ideation, innovation and invention. Imagination Workshops I conduct explore Creator’s sways in probing ideas, metamorphic stories, worlds of un-realities and ways of visualizing them. These I’ve conducted in: Germany, Malaysia, Poland, Singapore, Korea, UAE, Costa Rica, Venezuela, Hong Kong, Japan, Israel, Netherlands, Turkey, Sweden, China, Cuba, USA.

Travel has exposed me to cultures, lifestyles and enriching realities inspiring my passion for photography as well as art and concept design. My photography from Ireland, Peru, Thailand, Taiwan, Oman, Cambodia, Japan, China, Morocco, Lebanon, Jordan, France, Spain and Sicily are seeking exhibiting and publishing.

Seamlessly fusing reality & virtuality into a dimension inspiring imagination, I design concepts probing new horizons and ways to entertain, learn, design exhibits, perform, play or fuse interactivity, VR or AR into the “magic wand” enabling us to envision fantastic “un-realities” as far reaching as our imagination allows us. Within them, by controling chemical & physical properties of one’s worlds, we become the ultimate Creator.

I seek technical and practical support for project ideas probing “gravity free & reality independent prospects. As a Fulbright Specialist, I welcome worldwide cultural, science museums, academic or artistic institutions interested in my ideas, creative or academic projects, designs, photography or the Imagination Workshops.
