San Francisco based collaborative team, Crust and Dirt, infuse ritual, play, and magic in the technological realm with a global Internet-based art project called INSTANT DRAWING MACHINE.

On IDM, Crust and Dirt broadcast live via web cam to communities around the world. Using a laptop, a regional host takes to the streets in search of a wireless connection. Once an online connection is established, pedestrians encounter Crust and Dirt full screen. Those curious enough to engage are asked to share their dream or wish. Crust and Dirt then instantly manifest it right before their eyes as a drawing.

IDM integrates art into daily life, and is designed to break through the boundary that divides the seer from the seen.
