My environmental focused plugins are included in the exhibition End of Oil at Exit Art. The opening is this Saturday, June 13th from 6-8. The exhibition runs from June 13 – July 31, 2009.

A project of SEA (Social-Environmental Aesthetics) , The End of Oil is an exhibition of photography, prints, videos, installations and new media that addresses human dependence on oil and other fossil fuels; the ramifications that this dependency has on the future of the environment and of global geopolitics; and the recent push towards viable alternative energy resources.

Looking for that dream job in the computer game industry but don't have the technical skills to make it happen? Throw that mouse or joystick aside and try the new webcam-enabled training exercises from the School of Perpetual Training. If you like to play Dig Dug, train for a job in mineral mining. Or if Tetris is more your speed, train for a job in global shipping and distribution. The motion tracking programs are simple and easy to use. The online interface lets you train again and again until you're satisfied with your global market value. Don't waste another minute. Get started today!

School of Perpetual Training

School of Perpetual Training, an ironic edutainment website, exposes the underbelly and not so glamorous side of the computer video game industry. An animated personal trainer leads eager job seekers through a series of webcam game training exercises for outsourced jobs in digital game manufacturing and global distribution. Classic arcade games such as Dig Dug and Space Invaders are redesigned to train job seekers for positions in mineral mining and printed circuit board assembly. Pushing joystick and mouse aside, the webcam interface utilizes motion detection requiring full range of body motion to play. Through the relationship of physical labor for virtual gain, the reality of the actual physical, labor critical to running virtual worlds is made visible.

School of Perpetual Training was created through an Eyebeam Residency and is a 2009 commission of New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc., (aka Ether-Ore) for its Turbulence web site.

On Monday, April 6th, at 7:00 Britta and Rebecca had a show at Terence Koh's gallery space (Asia Song Society or ASS) as the first installment in their new programming series, Expel. They created fertilizer from participants' urine over the course of the evening. The event was the latest in a series of workshops that get people intimately involved in their waste cycle.

The DrinkPeeDrinkPeeDrinkPee installation at the Eyebeam Feedback exhibition in March 2008.

Drink.Pee.Drink.Pee.Drink.Pee looks at the very personal environmental issues caused by flushing our pee down the toilet: harmful algae blooms in aquatic ecosystems and pee-derived pharmaceuticals in our drinking water. How do we deal with the fact that our planet’s water cycles through a closed system? How do we take control of fact that what's in our pee ends up in the water we drink?

Greens growing in a suspended hydroponic Window Farm

We are creating several different designs for suspended, hydroponic, modular, low-energy, high-yield light-augmented window farms using low-impact or recycled local materials. These prototype window farms, to be located in high-profile windows throughout the city, are intended to inspire other New Yorkers to design and implement their own window farms. Signs in the windowfarms will challenge New Yorker to create their own and direct them to a website where we can all share photos, plans, designs, and information. Together, we will derive viable methods for growing food under the local conditions of our own homes in a way that is efficient enough for New Yorkers' lives.
