Architecture, Art, Design, Image, Sound, Fabrication
In the lab new designs are being prepared for machining of architectural door and light fixture hardware parts made from aluminum. A love for detail and precision drives this obsession for expertly crafted bespoke pieces. Fabrication.
We incorporated digital photography and videography to create web and print contect as well as several videos depicting the experience of visiting the property. We used Canon 5D cameras and lenses for the photography work, incorporated Panasonic GH4 cameras and lenses as well as a DJI Inspire 1 with X5 camera for aerial shots along with hand-held gimbal mounts for eye-level work. This client was interested in assets for an online presence and galleries along with a bespoke physical printed book that we are currently designing and creating. Image.
COMPOS/IT/E : was launched as a vehicle through which to explore architecture, art, design, image, sound and fabrication - manifested physical environments, experiences and products with which we interface every day. The Vision is to embody our self, to contribute to our collective, to elevate our intelligence, to expand our world - in this vision we come together to realize our inherent potential and gain new awareness from which we allow ourselves to evolve. It is our goal to advance the State of Being by expanding through our physical world to a destination of Joy. "I am passionate about creation – from my idea for a building design to cosmic dust forming a planet - I am moved by the image of manifesting something from perceived nothingness into physical existence. I am interested in how we can, as humans, bridge our minds and souls to produce a particular intentional or subsequent result elsewhere. My life progression has allowed me to grow more towards this understanding and my passion lies in interpreting this. I believe by doing this fully as a planet, the result is true love and bliss - we are able. And then?" --clayt. COMPOS/IT/E : is a full service creative studio and lab - in a pursuit of excellence and to advance the state of being our intention is to contribute services and products of the highest degree of creativity, innovation and quality to all endeavors. We seek new people, organizations and experiences with which to co-create and deliver impacting and beautiful results in the world.
