Jeff Crowse, Kenseth Armstead, and myself presented our work at the open video conference. There was a great Q&A afterwards that lead to some interesting copyright questions and dialog.

 

A nice article about the urban prospector on boing boing.

“Last week our pals at Gizmodo stumbled on an Instructables project for hacking a metal detector with a hydrocarbon sensor. The goal: use it to find oil you can extract and sell for $$$ OR locate underground toxins, so you can try to sue whoever put them there (win win, if you ask me).”

 

A group of us are going to give a series of presentations and workshops in Illinois from March 30th - April 4th. Come check it out if yr in chicago.

In mid May, I’ll be installing and giving workshops on my Oil Prospecting kit at Futuresonic in Manchester, UK. It will be an interactive installation with live over-hyped twitter feeds of people striking it rich using the oil finder, and google map mash-up of potential money spots. More info on the project here.

 

I’m starting a residency in mid-february at Eyebeam Atelier in NYC. There, I’m going to be working on a project called OMG, I’m on TV. ( spell out O. M. G. when you say it. It rolls off yr tongue better;)

I’m teaching two classes at colorado college this winter. The first one is an intro to new media class. Yes, very vague, but it will be a fun crash course on the history of new media art of the last 15 years, along with studio practice of the technique used such as ascii, a little programing, page scraping ect..
