One of his most recent work is the projection mapping project “Omote”. Omote is a Japanese word for face, or a mask, which is considered as a mirror of the human soul. Performers of Japan’s classical musical plays often use Omote masks to express a multitude of dramatic emotions, which is explored and realized through the integration of state of the art technology and Japanese art.

An interest project by Katie Lewis. From the creator: “The work is often organized into grid-like charts and diagrams mimicking science and medicine’s representations of the body as a specimen, visualy displayed for the purpose of gaining knowledge. In this way I create distance from the information and objectify the experience, giving a false sense that the body is accessible and easily understood.”
