I'm Dominique Davis, a creative technician that deals with light and space to create interactive installations and stage designs. I love exploring the questions of how we experience things and allowing others to explore experience through my works. I craft these works mainly for live events to create intimate moments for small and large groups of people to enjoy. My works are often collaborative or exist as commissions where I'm asked to do something original and custom using technology, fabrication and digital media. I enjoy taking my skills and applying it to tell stories.

When given a prompt or theme I can take the needs and turn it into a visual concept for how video or an interactive project will look and feel using sketches, timelines, and digital 2D and 3D renderings for pre-visualization.
Understanding of the technical side to production with 500+ shows of experience. The ability to plan ahead and budget time and costs accordingly. The ability to provide as much pre-production as possible and to manage a team to implement large scale projects on a highly technical level.
Taking data from the web, brain reading devices, cameras, sensors, and wireless emitters and then creating custom user interfaces for easy understanding of the data using visuals, audio, or extra-sensory output methods.
Crafting an experience around the audience that allows them to be part of a story involving a clients philosophy, product and service by using creative technology. This enables them to continue the story by telling it to others through words, pictures and videos.
Consultations from personal experience for concept design and technical complexity of projects that allow a good understanding of the how long, how much and what's needed before starting a project.
Commissioning and consultation for custom fabrications for events and environments for projections and interactivity. From hand held to full stage design. I first establish a design based on the needs and then create an interactive pre-visualization and supply a budget for time and costs the design.
TouchDesigner, Python and GLSL programming for generative applications. Using these tools I can create custom applications for events and installations that allow for full customization and input/output to or from other hardware devices.
Taking concepts and turning them into projects that work within the constraints of the budget. First I establish the narrative of the event or the product with the client. We then follow a structure that allows for creative freedom among a creative team while sticking to the big idea and the needs of the client.
Live Video Performance
VJ, theater, and live cinema performance using large scale projectors or LED walls for event, festivals, installations and live music performance.
Projection mapping on building facades, 360 rooms projections, stage projections, custom fabricated objects, pseudo-holograms or cutting edge mediums to allow for an immersive environment to tell a story. The understanding of power, data and proper set up of multiple projectors ranging from 3,000-30,000 lumens.
