Brian Nori (b.1983) is a self-taught Canadian artist who started exploring the arts & computers at a very early age. His passions inspired his professional career in multimedia design where he expanded & fine-tuned his skills in a variety of mediums.

Brian was diagnosis with MS in 2012. On a journey toward healing he sought out the unconventional healing medicine of the Shipibo tribe in the Peruvian Amazon. His experience in the jungle completely transformed his life.

Returning from the jungle half a year later, Brian made his defining decision to honor his creative passion to dedicate his life to the arts. His renaissance spirit is eager to combine the old with the new.

His work aims to connect to the emotional body through an exploration of the conscious & subconscious mind. His intention is to inspire new perspectives of self-discovery to forge a path to help heal the mind, body & spirit.

Summerdaze 2021 (2x)

I was hired by Summerdaze Festival (summer 2021)  as a projection mapping artist & VJ. I was granted the creative freedom to design & build the overall projection structures & lighting setup for the main music stage. While working on an extremely tight timeframe with a small creative team  we were able to finish the build while ensuring that the stage was both structurally sound & in alignment with the overall vision. This assignment was all orchestrated in a single day and included a full visual projection mapping of the structure (a series of 3 projectors) which was then used to VJ the DJ’s on the premiere of the festival that night.

Camp Summerdaze held a second event this summer in which I extended my responsibilities to take on the role of lead art director. My responsibilities included resource & talent scouting, management of construction teams to build out the vision of two main stages, 2 interactive art installations, an art car DJ booth, projection mapping, light painting photo booth, VJ & DJ.

Virtual Santa Clause

I was brought on by Downtown Sudbury & the YMCA to bring a live interactive holographic Santa Clause experience to Sudbury in the wake of the Covid19 pandemic. I teamed up with AtmosFX & our local Santa Clause to bring the experience to life through developing a live interactive rear projection experience where children could interact with Santa & his elves at the North Pole.
