Hello Singapore and Southeast Asia, My name is Stephen Black and I am hoping to find someone to work with on an art

, creative or commercial project. I am experienced in fine art photography, conceptual art, 3D gamemaking software videomaking, writing and music production. With this open invitation, I hope to connect with galleries and art curators as well as those working in publishing, gamemaking, television production,music,fashion, hotels, theatre, magazines and movies, especially 3D. Although I have worked extensively in New York, Paris, Hong Kong and Tokyo (cities in which I was also involved with companies such as CNN, Cartoon Network,Fox, Fuji TV and France 2), the following projects are Singapore-based:

2002 Creative Director/Developer for Walker-Asiam a Singapore based start-up. We developed original software for a platform similar to both YouTube and Second Life before both existed.The unexpected loss of the CEO brought this to a crashing halt, though I am confident that, like a phoenix, the project will be reborn for the mobile age. The connections made with governmental and educational groups worldwide are still strong.
