Participatory Democracy - Photo Album.
Had a lot of fun going to see and experience my friend Ravi Jain's group exhibit today:
Participatory Democracy (May 7 to July 29, 2004) is a ground-breaking exploratory art exhibition that will investigate three forms of interactivity: the first between the artists creating the exhibited works, the second between the artists and the audience, and the third between the audience and the artworks themselves. Featured work ranges from video and photography to performance and installation art.It's not every day where you can participate in a work of art, have fun, and confirm your decision to vote out of office the current president of the United States.
Jeff Warmouth took me behind the scenes to explain how he triggers the Skee Ball voting device to trip an electonic switch that sends a keyboard command to a Macintosh which in turn activates a Flash program function. Very cool.
