My Holidays So Far

Other than sleeping irregularly, catching up with friends, chionging movies that we have missed, i have been to 2 exhibitions so far.

Science Center Digital Art & Technology
Showcases many innovative and interactive technological stuff from all over the whole. Some are in installation form while others are something that you can hands-on.

Butterfly projected on steam and then on the wall.
Draw with ink and paper and you can create random animation.Some animation installation.Rectilinear planes with precise light projections.
Taking Neoprints? I can’t remember what this is. But it is rather interactive. After you take your picture, you can edit them like those Neoprint machines.Game cube that takes on your image if you stand in front of the green screen.Flip the books just with your hands. Motion sensor is fixed below.Multi touch screen that forms ripples.The color waves takes on the color of the objects. Isn’t this cool?Interactive game invented by NUS students.
Utterubbish is part of Singapore Design Festival 2007, located at the Old Parliament House. Recycling is the main theme while it focuses a collection of useless ideas, useless designs, useless products, useless fashion, useless space, useless objects, useless furniture, useless books, useless buildings, useless information, useless shop, useless film, useless food, useless technology.

Jonathan Harris’s We Feel Fine consists of both photographs and an interactive web portal. They come hand in hand displaying human emotions. The web portal is fun, as it searches the blogs in WWW to match the criteria you have narrowed down. It’s like reading random blogs. I particularly like the 2 photos.

There is a lot to say but i guess i will just post images. These are all i have taken before my camera battery went flat!!!

Rubbish collected from celebrities or reputable person’s trash bin.

Brooch made from measuring tape.

Lightings made from recycled plastics and bottle caps.

Recycled bins in Japan.
Punching bags made from recycled materials. And what fills the inside? Whatever paper you throw in your trash bin.
Who say recycling shopping bags must be green?
