David Francus is an artist and engineer based in Orlando, FL. His medium is electromagnetism. He uses everything from radio waves to lasers and x-rays in his creative and professional work, but his artistic output usually falls within the visible spectrum. David works at the confluence of art, science, and technology. When confronted with the choice between art and science in his academic career, he chose to pursue both. He believes that they’re two complementary sides of the same coin and delights in working across disciplines.
There’s lots of invisible beauty around us and David seeks to make that beauty known. His work deals with perception, synesthesia, science, technology, and the mysterious energy of live performance. He has worked as a VR and simulation researcher; electronics designer and systems engineer; laser show technician for several high-profile acts; and since 2012 has been part of the research and development arm of Walt Disney Attractions Technology. He has exhibited his work domestically and internationally, is an award-winning laserist, and holds two United States patents.
