EDUCATION

MFA (OCADU)

BIOGRAPHY

As an artist, Hector’s focus is on the aesthetic potential of immersive digital sound, visual and interactive experiences that seek to engage the audience into a reflection of existence, place relationship and the phenomenology of place. Among his artistic activities are national and international presentations of multi-channel sound art, interactive installation art, live sound and video performances, virtual reality experiences, virtual cinematography (virtual production), and virtual photography.

As a software and interactive system developer and designer, he has worked on virtual and augmented reality interactive experiences, video game mechanics and simulation systems, hardware sensors and micro-controller interactive systems for art installations, and spatial audio software tools. The organizations he has been involved with include New Adventures in Sound Art (as Technical Director), Impossible Things (as Technology Director) and for multiple independent interactive media artists.

As an academic, Hector has taught courses on theory and production techniques of digital media art at OCADU (Digital Futures), George Brown College (VFX, Interaction Design and Video Design) and Sheridan’s SIRT (Virtual Production).
