All in all, ITP is always fun, sometimes underwhelming. The best pieces are little jokes or games. One of the nicest was just a tent with a video projection on the surface of a campfire and woods. A bunch of us sat inside and just felt like we were backyard camping. It was a nice refuge.
This was fun…The Face Fight Machine was a fun, collaborative drawing tool… You and a partner draw your faces simultaneously, using two styli that are linked…you move together. I liked that the only button clears the screen and prints your result at the same time.
This one was fun…best use of laser-cutting and masonite in show, I think. More here.
My last stop was the Life Dress. Elizabeth Fuller kept me occupied until the end of show with her seriously-siliconed-out dress, filled with LEDs and wires, ready to flash whatever. She’s planning a 2.0 version with more tiles.
