Raphael Diluzio is a serial creative artist, entrepreneur and professor. He is currently developing two start-ups, creating a new research facility, the CI2 Lab, at University of Southern Maine, (USM) in Design Science and Creative Intelligence, while still maintaining his studio practice. His art is centered in visual image making, primarily in the relation between traditional studio art and digital time-based media. His interest lies in reconnecting a historical praxis in painting with technology. The result is live digital performances, time-based projected paintings, installation, and visualization. Raphael actively writes and publishes his theories on, Creative Intelligence, Design Science, working in a time-based medium as well as critically examining how these emerging media affect our culture. His newest work will be on display at the exhibition, “Voices of Design, 25 Years of Architalx,” opening at the Portland Museum of Art (PMA), February 2nd to May 19th 2012, Portland Maine.  He currently resides in Maine.

Virtual and Augmented Reality

The Ci2 has been using virtual reality and augmented reality since 2013

We have been proudly using virtual reality and augmented reality since 2013 in the Ci2.  We were among the first in the country to get the development kits for Google Glass, Oculus Rift, Meta and Microsoft Hololens.  We also have systems dedicated for development for the HTC Vive and other consumer versions of AR and VR.  The Ci2 is at the forefront of AR/VR development.
