TOPO-X Mobile Projection Unit

TOPO-X Project history: The TOPO-X Project is a collaborative mobile observation, projection and outreach exploration project and vehicle. It was developed as an interdisciplinary project between visual artist Brandon S. Gellis, assistant professor in the University of Wyoming’s Department of Art and Art History; J.J. Shinker, associate professor in the Department of Geography; and Meg Thompson Stanton, artist and coordinator of the Laramie Public Art Coalition to help better build bridges between the UWYO and Albany County communities, art and science exploration, and a means to bring exciting visual art to the Wyoming and national citizens.
