University of Wisconsin School of Biomedical Engineering have developed a device that lets you tweet by the power of thought alone!!!. Putting aside the obvious jokes on “thinking before twittering” for the moment, this is exceptionally neat stuff.

DNA 11 turns your unique genetic makeup into highly personalized art pieces. Now your DNA can be forever hung on mom’s wall with love. Sure beats that plaster handprint you made her in the second grade.

How it works:

In a beautifully flawless prank, the Public Ad Campaign refaced over 120 illegal billboards in New York City. The billboards are illegal because the parent company never received permits and there are too many of them for the city to tear them all down. That means they are open game for public art!

Rhett sez, "This is what happens when you point 7 HD projectors on a building for advertising. Make the real world look like a video game."

The old mint in downtown SF painted by 7 perfectly mapped HD projectors.(Thanks, Rhett!)

Anyone who ever asked me what to do in Paris has heard me rave endlessly about the Palais de Tokyo. That place makes other contemporary art museums and galleries look 'ringard', outdated and out of touch. The Palais is open from noon to midnight. An entrance won't entitled you to a 2 euros discount on a hefty glossy catalog. No, Sir, when you buy your ticket you are handed out a magazine with all the info you need to visit the exhibition and go further in the discovery once you're back home.

A quick app I put together this morning as a response to Todd Vanderlin’s AR scratching ( http://vimeo.com/4312616 ). The app uses the accelerometer of the ipod touch to control the speed of a ‘vinyl record’ on the ipod screen. Slowing down the record and speeding it up is just a matter of controlling how fast you spin the device.

Made with openFrameworks.

Next up scratching!

Track is Full Clip by Gang Starr.

On the subway yesterday I saw an ad for The Future Beneath Us, an exhibit at the New York Transit Museum and The New York Public Library. The joint exhibition is billed as "an illuminating look at the vast mega-projects that will bring New York City's underground infrastructure into the 21st Century and beyond." For those unable to visit the two venues -- The Science, Industry and Business Library’s Healy Hall, at 188 Madison Avenue, and the New York Transit Museum Gallery Annex and Store at Grand Central Terminal -- the online coverage is exemplary.

This art display system was created by [Peter Sand]. It is called Plant Fasting and is comprised of a giant robot with interchangeable tools for various gardening tasks. Though the system is mostly automated, it can be controlled via a game pad. It has an Arduino as its brain and it looks like he’s done a completely custom setup for powering the interchangeable pieces.
