Ryan was commissioned to create a challenging film and active sculpture for Sony using 100 Sony Xperia Z smart phones.
The film showcases british designer Christopher Raeburn’s S/S14 collection. Ryan collaborated with the creative technologists Hirsch & Mann to create this short film that crosses the boundaries of art, fashion and technology by exploring the process of photography and film creation through the inbuild features of the phone. Utilising custom software, bespoke apps as well as a wireless control system, Ryan created the world’s first ever spiralled bullet time sculpture entirely from smart phones.
This film was featured on It’s Nice That, Hypebeast, OnePointFour & Huh magazine
