Playing with fire, again

It's been a little quiet on the blog-front because we've been going nuts getting ready for the big festival with illutron - KulturSYDhavn (Culture in the South Harbor). It's the second year we're working in collaboration with the 10-years running Kulturhavn (Culture harbor), an amazing festival with tons of performances.

This year we decided on the theme "Remixing the Physical" and playing with some new 'elements': Sound, Fire, Water, Light, and Robots.

In this photo, we're experimenting with fire under water and throwing in some electricity for fun.

Happy Geeking!

The Touching Booth

The Flirt by geekphysical

As part of LABtoLAB in Nantes, France, we created the Touch Chair installation, part photo booth, part kissing booth, where two people sit across from each other and touch to take a photo.

Each time the photo is taken, half the screen changes so as to allow strange combinations of strangers or friends - or even two instances of the same person occur.

When one person touches the other, the camera takes a photo of one side of the scene - when another touch is 'felt' the other side of the photo is taken.

In this way, two photos make up the scene and people had fun playing with the possibilities, creating some amusing photos and finding some interesting ways to 'connect'.
