FashionWare 2016 at Consumer Electronics Show (CES) (Las Vegas, Nevada)

FashionWare: A high tech runway show like none other. We introduced the concept of high tech fashion way back in 2010 when a few pioneer designers were messing with interactive clothing. Today it’s a $20 billion dollar industry laden with high tech bling. Join Project Runway’s Nick Verreros at CES’s Tech West for our 2016 fashion preview. From jewelry that notifies you about with messages, to outfits that are environmentally aware, from glasses that give you bionic vision to shoes that you print on a 3D printer. The future of fashion belongs to the high tech.

Where: The Venetian, Level 2 , Ballroom G
When: Jan 7th at 10:30 AM, 12:30 PM and 2:30 PM

Burning Man 2015 (Black Rock Desert, Nevada)

Once a year, tens of thousands of people gather in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert to create Black Rock City, a temporary metropolis dedicated to community, art, self-expression, and self-reliance. In this crucible of creativity, all are welcome.

Burning Man isn’t your usual festival. It’s a city wherein almost everything that happens is created entirely by its citizens, who are active participants in the experience.

2015 Art Theme: Carnival of Mirrors

This year’s theme is about mirrors and masks, mazes and merger. It will be a kind of magic show that takes the form of an old-fashioned carnival. This Carnival of Mirrors asks three essential questions: within our media-saturated world, where products and people, consumption and communion morph into an endlessly diverting spectacle, who is the trickster, who is being tricked, and how might we discover who we really are?

Classic carnivals, as theaters of illusion, upheld a very strict dividing line that separated carnies, cast as showmen, from members of a naïve public who were labeled chumps and suckers, marks and rubes. Our carnival, however, will perform an even more subversive trick — its motto is Include the Rube. The wall dividing the observer from observed will disappear, as by an act of magic; through the alchemy of interaction, everyone at once can be the carny and the fool.

3D Floating Head above Center Bar in SLS Las Vegas (Las Vegas, Nevada)

The incredible display is in fact not an actual golden god, nor is it a projection-mapped, moving physical creation. Instead, the exhibit is a very clever optical illusion, using 2.1 million multicolor LEDs placed in a box structure to create a three-dimensional appearance when viewed from just the right angle.
