dorkbot NYC – May 2005

May 4, 2005The nine million and second dorkbot-nyc meeting took place on Wednesday, May 4th, 2005.It featuring the lovely and talented:

Evan Raskob: SurroundScapesSurroundScapes are an innovative approach to entertainment. Falling somewhere between video games and television, in terms of interactivity, they represent a new medium with its own set of rules for design, interaction, and content. Forms of entertainment like SurroundScapes could quite possibly become the largest form of entertainment media in the coming decade, outpacing movies, entertainment, and even television. Evan will talk about the possibilities of a new form of entertainment/interactivity, lay out some possible ground rules, and show some work that his team has done creating applications along these at whatif-labs com
Jeremy Bailey: Total Symbiotic Art SystemJeremy will present documentation of the development of a TSAS (Total Symbiotic Art System), namely VideoPaint, a software program he’s written that allows you to paint anywhere anytime. He will show examples from VideoPaint 1.0 and screen a series of performative journals documenting the development of VideoPaint 2.0
Brian House: Yellow ArrowBrian House and friends discuss Yellow Arrow and how combining stickers with text-messaging can turn into a global public art project, urban game, and tool for collaborative experimental travel.
