His installations have opened in London, numerous video art shows in New Mexico and California, architectural venues such as the Skidmore, Owings, and Merrill designed Virginia Beach Convention Center and the Morphosis designed Caltrans building. Robert Drummond Studio regularly collaborates and shows with Currents, an international video installation collective, and has worked as a visiting professor at New Mexico Highlands University, Department of Media Arts as well as Los Angeles Mission College, Institute of Art and Multimedia.

Additional Installations

An experiment in parabolic acoustic reflection, ultrasonic directional audio and automated LED lighting systems, Wave Field (2013) is an immersive interactive sound and light environment. Wave Field forms an intersection of advanced audio visual technology and psychoacoustics wherein the user can alter and shape the installation experience with body movement. Using tuned acoustic reflectors, ribbon speakers and sound sensitive light controllers, the space contained within Wave Field becomes a multidimensional sound and light chamber filled with modified field recordings and shifting ambient light.

In 2010, Robert Drummond Studio completed Almas de la Plaza Santa Fe (Spirits of the Plaza Santa Fe), a site-specific, historically-based video installation in the windows of the 1891 Catron Block building on the Santa Fe Plaza. Other installation exhibitions include: The Cutting Edge at Zane Bennett Gallery, Santa Fe (2009), Almas de la Plaza Las Vegas, NM (2008), Living Systems at the Contemporary Art Center of Virginia (2006), Decoding Highlights at VTO gallery London (2004), Northern Nights, Aurora Borealis works shot in Northern Canada (2004), Memory Prismatic in Marina del Rey, CA (2003), and Emotion Anamorphic at DCA gallery in Venice, California (2003).
