Museum of Pitchman Artistry

What is magical about the circus or carnival isn’t really always what’s behind the curtain, but rather what’s in front of it. The museum is dedicated to the lost art of the pitchmen – the ones who so skillfully tricked you into paying just one dollar for the greatest show on earth. I have created a series of animations to function as installations in the museum, all about what kind of stages their pitch went through, what language they used and how they got your attention.

Wizards of the Silver Ball

Inspired by the rich history of pinball (it was seen as gambling and subsequently banned for 30 years) and the fact that most pinball machines are in private homes, I created an identity and handbook for a tongue-in-cheek ‘secret pinball society’ focused on the preservation and celebration of the pinball machine, and the quirky community surrounding it.
