The external, kinda fun part of an installation project I’m working on. This is just the external/visual aspect and actually not the end aesthetic that I’m going for, but ya, kinda fun.

Ran it at our Handmade Music Toronto event for the monome tour night, on Friday Sept 24. More info here:

One of the things that makes the role of interaction designer so utterly fascinating: the canvas is very quickly becoming our entire world and the palette expanding far beyond the traditional interaction model.  The clothes we wear, the places we walk, devices as small as our watches and as large as our homes.  Our smiles and gestures, biometrics and body language: everything.

Definitely exciting times.  Now to make sure best practices, good taste, and moderation prevail over the inevitable urge to fill our physical world with the equivalent of “shoot the duck to win an iPhone” flash ads.

Since the first days of the web people have been talking about hypertext narrative – the ability to tell stories using nonlinear text, linked together and organized through the power of HTML.

In the mid 90’s there were many experiments in hypertext storytelling. Authors and artists…
