"using 1,300 punching bags, 6.5 miles of stainless steel cable, and 2,500 pounds of aluminum pipe to construct a 22-foot-high installation that took three years to complete" By artist Michael Kalish.
"The idea for the project came to Kalish as he was falling asleep one night in 2008: an array of custom-made, teardrop-shaped speed bags suspended in midair that, from just one vantage point, align themselves like pixels into an image of Ali's face."

Porcelain art by Kate Macdowell. Impressive and pretty!
"I’ve lived and worked in many different environments and cultures that have influenced the way I perceive the world, and therefore my pieces. These experiences have ranged from teaching in urban high schools and producing websites in the high-tech corporate environment, to volunteering at a meditation retreat center in rural India a few hours outside of the fever pitch of Bombay. I’ve also collected visual imagery and ideas from my travels through Renaissance Italy, Classical and Minoan Greece, Nepal and Thailand."

Kiss Controller

Gear  |  Projects
Kiss Controller is a game input device that controls the direction and speed of a bowling ball while users are kissing.
"The Kiss Controller interface has two components: a customized headset that functions as a sensor receiver and a magnet that provides sensor input. The user affixes a magnet to his/ her tongue with Fixodent. Magnetic field sensors are attached to the end of the headset and positioned in front of the mouth. As the user moves her tongue, this creates varying magnetic fields that are used to control games. "

Moss Invaders

Gear  |  Projects
"Moss Invaders" is a project, when someone touches one of the Moss Invaders on the wall, then playing 8-bit sounds. The project by Marko Manriquez and Kimi Spencer.
User Scenario
The visitor chooses reflect upon the moss mural and then on closer inspection touches the moss. The moss responds by playing a sound. This prompts the visitor to touch different parts of the moss. Different visitors standing around listen or start playing different parts of the mural in concert.
Implementation
Moss invaders comprises a living graffiti mural and a capacitive sound installation into one piece. The moss mural is made using laser cut stencils to mold a moss milkshake concoction of our own devising. The moss paste is “painted” onto the stencils to grow directly onto the brick wall surface. The sound installation aspect takes the moss invaders into the intergalactic realm. Each moss pad is a capacitive sensor which plays 8-bit musical sounds when touched.
