Over the years, as an architect, interior designer, visualisation consultant and digital artist,  I have been really fortunate to have the opportunity to work on a wide range of projects, with some really great people and companies.  

I have just started to create this section of the website, so please forgive its pretty sparse condition...

Below the line are links to various projects :

Feet CT Scan Volume Render Visualised with Present3D on Vimeo

This is a test volume render in Present3D using a Colour Look Up Table to hide and colour selected parts of the CT data. The movie was captured using Present3D's save to image sequence feature. There were three sequences imported and combined using Apple Motion. The original sequences were captured in side by side stereo, this is the right eye.

Created by Phil Lavery, Digital Learning Foundation, as part of the JMVP (Joint Medical Visualisation Project ) with The University of Aberdeen Medical School and the Digital Learning Foundation.

ROSA : Jesus Orellana

ROSA from Jesús Orellana on Vimeo.

ROSA is an epic sci-fi short film that takes place in a post-apocalyptic world where all natural life has disappeared. From the destruction awakes Rosa, a cyborg deployed from the Kernel project, mankind’s last attempt to restore the earth’s ecosystem. Rosa will soon learn that she is not the only entity that has awakened and must fight for her survival.
The short-film was created entirely by young comic-artist Jesús Orellana with no budget during a single year. Since it's world premiere at the Seattle International Film Festival, ROSA has been an official selection at film festivals around the world such as Screamfest, Toronto After Dark, Anima Mundi or Los Angeles Shorts Film Festival. In October ROSA was screened at the opening night of the Sitges International Film Festival, considered the world's best festival specialized in genre films. Following the succesful festival run, the short film has attracted the attention of the major talent-agencies and Hollywood producers. Currently ROSA is in development to be a live-action motion picture.

drawing (on) riverside : the process

There are some projects that start out as one thing and then seem to morph into something else all together.

This was one of those.

Trish (Patricia Cain) first approached me, by email, around the end of August 2010. She had used a 3D drawing tool developed by John Stell of Leeds University, that allowed gestural drawings to be created using a tracked 3D mouse, a project that unfortunately, had since been discontinued, and she had thoughts of doing something similar for her Kelvingrove exhibition that would open in April 2011. 

A couple of weeks later, we met here, at my studio, where I gave her a demo of my 3D stereo system and Present3D, the software that we (myself and Robert Osfield) have developed to produce 3D shows. But this wasn't really what she wanted, and from her description " to be presented, not on a screen, but onto a plinth" I suggested that perhaps a variation on a Pepper's Ghost might be worth exploring... she agreed and so things began...

The rest of the process is sort of summarised in my written piece for the catalogue :

Nothing is Fixed, Nothing is Final...

by phil lavery

As I write this, nothing is fixed, nothing is final, there is only the process. A process that started with an email, a meeting and an idea.

Hydroponics Experiment 1 : Making the Wick System

Computer Centre : LHC CERN visit Photo 6

The LHC is running, protons racing round the 27km ring 11,245 times a second, that is 99.9% the speed of light and around 600 million collisions take place every second...

CERN Control : #lhc #cern visit : #photo 5

This unassuming building is the CERN control centre for the LHC. I have to say, that going inside the control room was, well, a little bit of an anticlimax... perhaps it was after the amazing scale of ATLAS, CMS and the Tunnel...

LHCb : LHC CERN visit Photo 4 : Now where are those Penguins?

LHC Beauty Experiment
LHCb doesn't seem to get the same amount of press coverage as ATLAS or CMS, which is strange, because it is looking for Penguins...
