Sensebellum can design, create, install, perform, and do pretty much anything.
Between monuments, festivals, natural features, private events and more, we've made all sorts of different architecture and objects come to life with custom designed visual content!
Every project presents a new challenge and calls for something different. Getting the job done right often requires us to brainstorm and engineer custom pieces of hardware ranging from circuit boards to weather proof projector enclosures.
We are constantly creating new multi-sensory experiences showcasing a wide range of emerging technologies in the form of art pieces that are not complete until you play with them!
The artistic community is a rapidly evolving and innovating landscape full of creative people. Collaborating and sharing remain at the core of what we do. We help many artists design projects such as community improvements and cutting edge art installations.
INNOVATIVE STAGE DESIGN
Projection mapping, LED features, flood lights, moving lights, lasers, and more with our custom engineered CUBIX modular staging system, we are able to achieve nearly limitless possibilities.
AND MUCH MORE!
We are constantly taking on new challenges and endeavors pushing the limits of what we can do by blending together technology and art. Every day and every project is different. If you're excited about a new idea or project, please feel free to contact us!
Every project starts with an idea. This is where we determine the objective and the constraints by working together with other teams and among ourselves to determine what is going to by most effective.
Next comes tracking down the materials and crafting them into the right specifications using techniques ranging from wood working to soldering to 3D printing and beyond. To finally bring these ideas to life we integrate technology often incorporating custom written code or custom made electronics.
Finally, we go live with the project! If it is an event, we stay present and work with the staff to ensure everything goes perfectly. If it is a permanent installation, we make sure that we leave those in charge of the project with all the tools and understanding they will need to successfully operate and troubleshoot while remaining as a continued resource for them.
We use a wide array of software to develop ideas and plans for our projects. This incorporates both software that is ubiquitous across the industry and custom made software that we've developed to achieve specific and unique tasks. We also use many different techniques for 3D modeling to make sure we have an accurate understanding of each project. This allows us to craft perfectly fitting custom content and helps to confirm costs ahead of time so there are no surprises.
Whether we're in the office or the workshop, we are always hard at work to make sure each project is done to the best of our ability. We often use a wide array of techniques from soldering, carpentry, 3D printing, welding and laser cutting to get the exact result we've envisioned.
There's no app for everything. Pushing the limits of what we can do with technology requires a firm understanding of many coding languages. We use custom written code for a spectrum of applications including complex visual mixing and programming microprocessors to help our hardware and art pieces interact and remain in harmony with their surroundings.
Sensebellum is a company founded by Casey Scalf in 2011 specializing in multi-sensory interactive art & technology experiences that bring people together in the physical space.
The core of Sensebellum is the space where the senses mix, people come together, and real-deal open-ended learning and entertainment take place.
"Starting with a life long fascination in electronics, a love for the wilderness, and a keen eye towards the future I have felt compelled to explore these areas of art and technology and to combine them into unique, yet useful forms. I started this company to participate in the coming age of ubiquitous computing and decentralized abundance.
It is my pleasure to take on these challenges and bring the fruit to bear for the rest of the world to see in beautiful, interesting, and thought-provoking ways.This is Sensebellum."
- Casey Scalf, Founder
The word "Sensebellum" is part "senses" and part "cerebellum"; the nexus where it all comes together. By leveraging technology we can create beautiful new forms of art, models for business, and avenues for communication and collaboration.
Born out of Bellingham, Washington, Sensebellum specializes in projection mapping, interactive art, stage design, creative code, and much more. Sensebellum is a company of 2: Casey Scalf, and Trevor Weidenbacher. However, frequent collaborations and a diverse cast of projects often bring others into the house of Sensebellum. By opting for a flexible staff and lean overhead, projects can be taken on, completed, and grown rapidly without the burden of staffing, campuses, and other institutions.
