“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.

NICEBOTS project is a one-month long open studio exhibit, showcasing the construction and design of interactive robots. During the exhibition, the artists transform the gallery space into a working studio where the audience is able to observe and learn how the bots are built and interact with them in their space.

The project took place in Nice, France at the Galerie Contemporain of the Musée d’Art Moderne et d’Art Contemporain (Museum of Modern Art and Contemporary Art) from September 18, 2004 to October 15, 2004.
KU: iyashikei-net

KU: iyashikei-net is an interactive networked installation that allows people to communicate through the interface of tears, a physical output of human emotional expression that has been overlooked, and never made exchangeable with current communication devices.

Created in collaboration with Urico Fujii. This project was selected to present at the 5th Annual Spiral Independent Creator Festival in Tokyo, Japan.
Live Sketch

Live Sketch is a video installation that simulates sketch drawing of live motion. A camera captures a live video stream and the result is largely projected onto a wall.

Sketchers and drawers translate what they see onto a piece of paper and capture that static moment in time. Using computer and video information, Live Sketch mimics the same scenario where the computer is the sketcher trying to capture what its eyes, the video camera, is able to see, at the speed that it is able to render.
