TAO: Downtown

TAO: Downtown is a beautiful restaurant in the Meatpacking District of NYC. The centerpiece of this restaurant is a 16' tall Guanyin statue which has projection-mapped content that cycles throughout the evening.

I worked as a Developer on this project to create a custom video scheduling program which would allow you to define a sequence of videos to play, automate control of VDMX and architectural lighting, and be able to be overridden by a VJ. I also helped fine-tune content to match the statue and set up the system for completely automated running, including boot up and shut down.

  • Create custom software for automating VJ software
  • Configure and install computer and network on-site
  • Create VJ interface for controlling playback remotely
