Musical Swings v2, at the FAT Village Projects

An indoor demonstration version of the musical swings will be up for a month at Fort Lauderdale's FAT Village Projects, a gallery and event space in the FAT Village arts district. I previously gave a talk about this project at the same venue as part of their Art + Tech Incubator Lecture and Workshop Series and they were kind enough to host what I'm calling version 2 of the installation as an exhibit.

The complete installation.

Markers at the Beach

Here are some old marker and pen sketches from the summer of 2011, when I was practicing at Deerfield Beach in Florida.

A Good Night at the Art+Tech Incubator Workshop Series

Saturday night's talk at The Projects of FATVillage went well. I was glad to have the opportunity to do a live demonstration of the musical swings technology. Getting it to work again, presenting it, and having stimulating interactions with people suggested many ideas for improvements to this and similar interactive musical exhibits.

Many thanks to a great audience for attending and speaking to us after the show; it's obvious that many guests were simmering with interesting ideas, of which I hope to hear more in the future. Also, my special thanks go to the following people and institutions:

Talking About the Musical Swings at FATVillage

On April 14th at 6 PM I'll be presenting a talk at Fort Lauderdale's FATVillage Projects (in the Flagler Arts and Technology district near downtown) as part of their Art+Tech Incubator Lecture and Workshop Series. My topic will be the musical swings project I helped with last year and about using electronics in interactive art installations. Hope to see you there!

Skyscraper Doodles

In recent months I've been edging closer and closer to taking my love of architecture a little more seriously. What with October's trip to Dubai and consequent gawking at some absurdly fanciful (and yet actually realized!) designs for towers, a few mildly architectural home projects I'm working on, and my fascination with Netflix's new show The World's Most Extraordinary Homes, it's time to indulge in publishing some old architectural fantasies of mine. Here's a page of doodles from last January, mostly playing with the terraced idea that's been so important a part of skyscraper design since the beginning:
