Electric Sheep for Android wins ZKM App Art Award

I am pleased to report the Electric Sheep for Android has won a ZKM App Art Award for "Cloud Art". I was just in Germany for the award ceremony (see 1:11:30 in the video). ZKM is an amazing and huge institution and I was truly honored to be there. Thank you to the judges and sponsors.

We have gotten some good press in Germany I did 3 for radio and 2 for tv. Here's an article in Spiegel Online and on the air by DW.

Interactive Video for Skrillex etc

I made the interactive video website for the Full Flex Express, a group of bands on a train-tour across Canada. Skrillex, Pretty Lights, Diplo, Grimes, Koan Sound, and Tokimonsta are all in the mix. The software is based on the Video Riot that I made some time ago and released as open source. It implements video feedback in WebGL using the shading language.

Interview in Art in Odd Places Blog

Art in Odd Places blog just published a nice interview of me. These aren't the usual canned questions but some really probing conversation. Plus they sprinkled it with a bunch of sheep images of their own choosing (and they chose well).
