DRUMBOTIC was a collaboration between artist Amery Kessler and engineer Kipp Bradford.  The project allowed a person or group to tap on a coffee cup and strike objects and architectures as near as a ceiling overhead and far as a mile away. This distance traversed  wirelessly, and turned out of reach objects in your environment into percussive instruments at your fingertips.  

 

 

Virus Simulation was a collaboration between artist Lauren Kalman and engineer Kipp Bradford.  This work comprised a series of wearable interactive electronic jewelry broaches, created by Bradford, that were mimicking the spread of the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV), and an online visualization tool. The installation of the project created the opportunity to simulate the spread of a contagious disease in a real population, making visible the hidden world of a biological virus spread by social contact.  

 

 

As a technical consultant, Kipp Bradford worked with artist Jay Critchley on Beige Brigade, an installation of 50 beige, sand-encrusted planes and helicopters made from discarded, disposable flash cameras which flash on motion sensors.  

 

 

 

As a technical consultant to The Fabric Workshop & Museum, Kipp Bradford worked with artist Doug Aitken on Interiors, a video installation with eleven large translucent screens.  Set at the end of three rooms, the projections draw out the compositional similarities between four urban areas, using city nightscapes, street and traffic lights, and architectural settings to make them seem to be parts of one heterogeneous megalopolis.
