well thanks to paul from txtual healing, i was finally able to fulfill my wish of seeing my artwork, The Found Sounds Project, projected on the walls at the Wired NextFest. check out the pic below. "Scooping out the Flesh" projection-bombed onto the walls. love it! so much fun. Paul is doing amazing stuff with SMS enabled interactive visuals, as are the guys over at Nanikawa. they had a bee-uuu-tiful swimming-messages display. One day i hope to work with somebody like this with my text-based imagery.

anyway, the NextFest show was great. here we are playing Brain Ball. (Notice the brain-wave-reading headband).
The object of the game is to relax more than your opponet. by doing so, you trigger your brain's alpha (beta? theta?) waves to drop, and you send this little magnetic ball into your opponets court. Kinda like fuse-ball for the zenned-out. I got clobbered, which is surprising considering my propensity for meditation... Hmm... i'm claiming sleep-deprivation that day.
Satine, playing in Sound Lights exhibit. The colored faucets each made a sound when the water from the faucet hit the pool, or when you ran your hand underneath. Even when you splashed your hand in the water, it was like playing notes on a piano. veerry cooool.
