MARRY the MOON

Nicole (MARRY the MOON) is an award winning artist and director who creates extraordinary ways to view narratives. She was first inspired to crack the interactive story code at Warren Spector’s famed Looking Glass Studios, where she worked as a game designer and 3D modeler. Her vision of stories as multi-axial continuums led to collaborations with NASA to create high-res composite imagery from low-res satellite data. This same passion for technology as a creative tool has led her to create award-winning interactive experiences for brands such as Cirque Du Soleil (a Google Chrome Experiment), Toyota, Dove, Motorola, Volkswagen and Microsoft. Leveraging new and emerging technologies as the creative tools, Nicole’s passionate vision is to seek out innovative ways for viewers to experience narrative as active participants.
