Custom Made Objects

Fausto has build a number of custom made machines, tailored to meet specific aesthetic and production needs, driving the director work towards a non-theatrical and unique space.

Multitap Water Controller

For TangiWai Fausto designed a custom built system to control the water effects on stage.

The water effects were controlled  and manipulated live, via lighting desk, allowing the production to achieve a unique and stunning  aesthetic, creating a wide range of water palettes and textures.

For this production Fausto wrote the software and prototyped the hardware necessary to control the water effects via lighting desk.

Richard Manner: technical consultation and final hardware building 


Currently I am modifying and upgrading three 35mm slide projectors

Upgrades will include:

-capability of attaching the projector to dimmer to control the light intensity

-installing LED light source 

-reducing cooling  fan noise

-possibility of controlling the slide cartridge, focus and zoom via DMX, IR or ethernet.

Custom Made Interface for Controlling Lighting Effects

Testing a custom built interface for manipulating lighting via touch pen or mouse.

This interface was created and designed to allow an highly intuitive interaction between lighting operator and clusters of lights or LED strips, in order to achieve specific and unique lighting effects. 

This interface is intended to be used as a tool  to bypass some tedious and unnecessary lighting  programming,  freeing up the board operator to experience  the performance and immediately respond to it,   manipulating the lighting in real time , in a different and unique way for every show.

Portable power station for testing and prototyping outdoor installations 


This portable power station can power up several LEDs lights, as well as a small/medium size sound speakers and video projectors.

This power station is suitable for prototyping and testing ideas on location,  temporary installations or performing art works.

With a simple implementation, it could be connected to a solar panel, to recharge the battery during daylight.
