"Sensorium" @ IDEA1: A curatorial project (2018)
The following images document a project Eric developed and curated for Vanguard Culture's "Sensorium” at IDEA1. At the time, this was new development located in downtown San Diego’s rapidly growing East Village district. The event included visual, performing, and culinary artists, occupying multiple levels of the property, including the ground floor hub, and the rooftop deck. Fifteen empty lofts were transfigured into experiential exhibition spaces with over eighty visual artists. The exhibition was aired on National Geographic's four-part miniseries on San Diego, in episode 3: City of Creativity.

Lofts #249 & #250 were a few hundred square feet bigger.
The People's Opera House Project "Mutate or Die" by Tony Allard
The People’s Opera House project is a social experiment in crowd-sourced creativity that cinematically and operatically engages the audience in the compelling conversations of our time. At this anthropocentric moment in history we would be wise to engage in the conversations that Darwinism is being replaced by “directed evolution” through genetic engineering and that our future as transgenic or trans-human beings is rapidly approaching.
