Michael Strauss is a visionary event producer, live visual artist, and technical wizard. He has been crafting multi-dimensional projection art for over 13 years. Michael’s psychedelic animation, live video mixing, and projection mapping have enhanced countless shows and brought life to the stages of nearly every venue on the west coast.
Michael is now expanding his work into 360 projection domes, virtual reality, and augmented art. As a founder of Visual Reality, the premiere community gathering for immersive art and transformational VR in Los Angeles, Michael continues to explore new forms of expression.
In addition to Lucidity, his work has been seen on the main stages of festivals such as Lightning in a Bottle, Sonic Bloom, Symbiosis, Serenity Gathering, Electric Daisy Carnival, Nocturnal Wonderland. Collaborations include next-level stage productions with performance acts like Lucent Dossier Experience, Desert Dwellers: Beyond, and Kalya Scintilla’s Evokation. Official music music videos include projects for David Starfire, Shaman’s Dream, Luvamp Project, Solar Theory, and many others.
Most recently Michael was chosen to remix the visionary art of Alex and Allyson Grey as the official VJ for the Bicycle Day 75th Anniversary tour with Shpongle. In early 2019, Michael and the Greys are joining forces to create a complete transformation of the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors museum with projection mapping and augmented reality enhancements.
Michael’s art is the true embodiment of modern-day magic, using technology and creativity to transform reality.
