"...specialization is in fact only a fancy form of slavery wherein the 'expert' is fooled into accepting his slavery by making him feel that in return he is in a socially and culturally preferred, ergo, highly secure, lifelong position. but only the king's son receive kingdom-wide scope of training."

“Footprints” is a camera phone based interactive installation proposed for the Art Center Nabi, in Seoul Korea.

The installation consists of multiple screens displaying images of different pairs of feet embedded in the floor. The images are from the top-down, self point-of-view portrait of one's own feet at a particular location. People are asked to participate by submitting their own photos via mobile phone, email, or website upload.

"Footprints" received the grand prize for the Mobile Asia 2006 competition organized by the Art Center Nabi. On exhibit at the "Connected" show from December 9 - 22, 2006.

"I've Been Waiting for You"

"I've Been Waiting for You" is a gallery show of interactive and relational art works by FABRICA. I co-curated the show with Andy Cameron and Silvia Marini for the Triad New Media Gallery in Seoul, Korea.

The show includes six projects that are born of the same aesthetic, where networked communications have enabled a different sense of sociability amongst people and where compilation of data often result in interesting portrait of time, place and people.

Sponsored by the Italian Cultural Institute of Seoul, the show was on exhibit from November 16 - December 17, 2006 and was a part of Matrix S, a collaborative project organized in conjunction with the 4th Seoul International Media Art Biennale.

CommPose is a camera-phone interactive installation system developed to enable public sharing of digital media. The system accepts camera-phone media (photos and video) via a Bluetooth network and displays them in a slideshow format in the installation space. Over time the collected media reveals a portrait of a community who were once there at the installation site.

Conceived at FABRICA in 2005, Mark Argo and I have installed CommPose using variation of themes in Italy, Canada, Thailand, and South Korea.
