I realize I'm writing to myself, why not? We saw Lady Gaga on TV, wonderful! We're starting working with Foofwa in the Project Space tomorrow. The horrors of the past year are broken down by the artificial barrier of the new! 

Seeing Lady Gaga, I thought, this is not only the real art and technology / new media, but it's also inside the computer - the glow-works of Times Square were unbelievable, indescribable. I could theorize this material to death, but I was really in awe for once.

Now we have to do the same starting tomorrow, welcome Foofwa, along with Mark Skwarek, Azure of course, Chris Diasparra, later Slava, we'll see what we can do!

 

Who wouldn't want to turn their body and skin into a musical instrument, or to generate a personal dance tune? How about sitting in an oscillating chair which allows you to experience physically the power of sound or to create your very own personal surround synthetic cinema?

These were just a few of the quirky activities on offer at Thursday's Biorhythm: Music and the Body event at the World Science Festival, in an exhibition created by Science Gallery, Trinity College Dublin and running until August 6th.

Held at the Eyebeam Art and Technology Center, an unassuming building off 21st street, on first glance the packed exhibition looked like any other ordinary show, yet on closer inspection, visitors were suddenly propelled into an exploding sensory banquet of interactive displays and immersive demonstrations.

10 Cameras is a video documentation of a 10 channel, one hour synchronized video installation. Ten people equipped with dv cameras meet in the woods of Caumsett State Park, Long Island. Each participant, with camera to eye, simultaneously embarks upon the shoot from the center of the forest. The installation shows each view synchronously, as they disband through the forest choosing their own paths for the length of one minidv tape (1 hour). The excursion begins to end as they whistle to find each other at 50:00. Funding assistance was provided by Experimental Television Center's Finishing Funds.
