Theodore Watson is a new media artist and designer from London, currently residing in New York City. He has shown work in New York, Paris and Austria. He is currently developing software based animation tools for children that allow them to animate in fun and intuitive ways.
At Eyebeam Theodore worked on Maya2GoogleEarth - a plugin for Maya that allows you to export your 3D models to Google Earth's placemark format. It could allow an architect to publish building models in a simple, freely accessible way that would allow people to view the building in its actual geographic location.
