Jason McDermott

Jason McDermott is a PhD student of Architecture at UTS. His research is in Informal Dialogue, which is about how architectural space communicates with it's surrounding environments and occupants. On December 8 Jason will be unveiling his latest work which is a computer program designed in Max MSP which will project a digital canvas onto the wall of TAP Gallery in Darlinghurst during the exhibition REAL PERSPECTIVE. Viewers will be able to use a virtual paint applicator in the form of a wii controller.

Jason's vision for his work is to allow artists to explore a digital medium beyond the desk-top studio that the digital revolution perpetuates. How this plays into architecture is that anyone can become the artist, occupant, and architect by wielding dominion of the visual environment.
