The Sycamore Depot Project

site-specific, video projection mapping
2016

The Sycamore Depot Light Show (2016) was a one-night event showcasing motion graphics animated by my students and myself to be projection mapped onto the historic Sycamore Train Depot in Sycamore, Illinois. The event was funded by a grant from the Speiser Family Foundation intended to promote the artwork of Northern Illinois University faculty and students. The depot houses the offices of the DeKalb County Community Foundation – an organization dedicated to managing the philanthropic resources for the DeKalb community. In addition to directing/producing the event I created an animation depicting two trains that would have passed this depot during it’s existence as a working depot. The images of the train cars passing by each had logos that represent area businesses which no longer exist.
