Peripheral semantics

This research demonstrates a foundational approach to peripheral semantic information delivery capable of conveying highly complex symbols well beyond the established mean, using motion-modulated stimuli within a series of small, static apertures in far periphery ( > 50°).

Stimulus preparation

Adapting stimuli to dynamic environments One of the greatest challenges of adapting motion-modulated semantics to real-world environments is maintaining requisite conditions for effects to occur.

Light Field Retinal Imaging

This system introduces ophthalmic light field capture, on a micro camera platform, allowing for a robust approach to the acquisition of multi-view imaging and ensuring nearly all light emitting from the pupil is gathered for processing.

Synthetic shape motion

Our visual realities are flooded with complex and robust natural scenes.  New findings in curvature estimation illustrate where our expectations of reality can break down

Invisible Ink

The eye is a highly sensitive and programmable array of sensors.  By presenting stimuli to discrete regions of the retina we encode neural pathways with

Active power assist for heavy lifting

Power lift prototype: compressor force-resistive foot feedback with on-board mulit-channel solenoid valve configuration [lift capacity = 600 lbs] October, 2015     http://everettlawson.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/02/20151004_191036.mp4http://everettlawson.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/02/20151004_191117.mp4 Early development

Sculpting Plasma

I engineered and built a 12 cubic foot vacuum particle accelerator with a power grid running at 300,000 V made from discarded television components, and a 10,000-watt stepped-up magnetron series. It is a photographic platform with which I have the freedom and flexibility to address a variety of natural mediums at the molecular level.

Secondary Refuse

There is an inextricable link between the perspective of human engagement and the reaction of unseen forces.  Secondary Refuse is a project that began at

Art of Tone

The Art of Tone is a visual approach to the granular synthesis of sight and the very nature of particles specific to our perspective in space and time

Maunder Minimum

I created a number of artificial retinas on which images can be focused to address iconic decay as an unperceived aspect of sight. These carefully arranged elements have been developed into a device which can only “see” afterimages, presenting an aesthetic world of imagery beyond our conscious view.

The Third Book

These pieces are single exposures made possible by the first digital camera I designed and built, which is nearly three feet across, makes an absolutely horrible noise, and has enough copper in it to make about 2000 pennies.

Mountain math

Miner’s pick mattock, a differential joint from a piece of old farm equipment, a mining rail, and two tractor seat springs.     https://everettlawson.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/12/Vid-20190620-124829-1.m4v Three
