In addition to producing live dance performances, JPDG houses Projections by JP, interactive media art created by Julie Petrusak. These virtual creations are presented both as interactive art installations and as supporting visuals for films and live performances.

Photobooth offers the fun and spontaneity of the group photo but removes the curtained privacy of the traditional photo booth. The result is an instantly shared-photo experience to be enjoyed by everyone at the party.
“Such a Pretty Girl…Behave Yourself!”
Such a Pretty Girl..Behave Yourself! (2006) is a sculpture and performance piece by Eve Larouche- Joubert.
By manipulating live capture video of the 2017 revival of the work, I create a live “blueprint” inspired by Larouche-Joubert’s original blueprint for the sculpture. The “Blue Print” was projected within the performance space during and after the show.

Oulu Dance Hack 2017
As a participant in the Oulu Dance Hack 2017 in Oulu Finland, , I worked with infrared motion-tracking technology and Isadora to create a new dance-technology performance. In this work, the technology tracked the dancers’ movements, allowing a dancer to paint a projected landscape on the floor with her movement. Other dancers performed on the digital landscape until a last dancer used movement to erase the scene.
BAD REP Interviews Clayton Patterson
Photographer Clayton Patterson is most known for documenting the Tompkins Square Park Police Riot of 1988. During this interview with Bad Rep Multimedia, Clayton recalled his night at the 1988 police riots and his arrest for refusing to turn his footage over to police, and weighed in on the multi-decade issue of police brutality in our country. For this interview I created video collages of Clayton’s images from the riots and of life during 1980’s New York City. These collages were live projected during relevant questions in the interview creating a interplay between visuals and conversation. The collages were later projected as moving galleries for an event that honored Clayton Patterson and his prolific body of work.
