Daniel Gorman comes from a documentary film and advertising background. Prior to partnering on projects with Ian LeBlanc, and creating the Industrial Design company, Hive 73, he worked with companies like Mini-Cooper, The Gap, and BBDO. In 2008 he traveled to Cambodia to shoot a documentary film on Waste and War.
The name Kitbashive is meant to describe an artistic philosophy and process inspired by sci-fi model designers and embraced by Ian LeBlanc– a quiet young man caught up in a love-hate relationship with his computer. He keeps trying to tell it what to do, but it only listens sometimes. When it does as it’s told, it makes textural mishmashes of bits and pieces that Ian harvests from the bright minds around him, and these days it prefers to do so in real time at 60 frames per second. Ian uses art to claim he is a programmer, and programming to claim he is an artist.
