I will be showing a new VR piece – How the Human Heart Works, that I developed with Travis Vermilye. Travis created the animated heart and I programmed the interactions. The piece will be exhibited at the Next Stage Collaborative gallery located at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts.
My VR piece – A Dwelling for the New Man, will be exhibited at the Next Stage Collaborative gallery located at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts. The viewer is encouraged to explore a living plant that is connected to the virtual world seen within the VR headset. Others may manipulate the world using a MIDI controller that is hooked up to the virtual world.
I will be showing Murmur at the International Day of Peace conference in Denver.
I will be showing Murmer at the annual Colorado Health Foundation at the Keystone Event Center in Keystone Colorado.
I will be installing an installation at Walker Fine Art on Friday, January 15th. The piece is about utopian futures and will include a stereoscopic mural, lenticular prints and Google Cardboard VR headsets.

An installation created with artists Katie Caron and Justin Beard at Redline gallery in Denver.
Influence Fields was commissioned for Redline Denver’s Epic Gala fundraising event. Attendees could move the 3D printed organisms on the table, creating waves of influence on the particle stream that is projected onto the table. The orbs represented and created force fields, that attracted or repulsed the millions of particles projected.
Traversal is a collaborative work that explores the digital and physical space. Bryan Leister has written code in response to the sculptural forms created by Becky Heavner. The projection interacts with the form, avoiding it or moving onto it through the programmed behavior of agents in the projected image. Each dot represents an individual agent, that can think about where they want to go and react to changes in it’s individual situation. The lines are a palimpsest of these emergent decisions and collectively represent the movement of an entire colony of agents. Visitors can disrupt the entities by gesturing with the lights, creating new behaviors and resulting in new patterns of behavior.
