»Talking Popcorn« is a sound sculpture that evolved out of Nina Katchadourian’s interest in language, translation, and Morse Code. A microphone in the cabinet of the popcorn machine picks up sound of popping corn, and a computer hidden in the pedestal runs a custom written program that translates the popping sounds according to the patterns and dictates of Morse Code. A computer generated voice provides a simultaneous spoken translation.


New Net DOT Art: Digital Pogs

I have a new Net DOT Art project called Digital Pogs.

Digital Pogs are like real pogs but digital. Check out my Digital Pog Page to see the Digital Pogs I've got in my collection and learn how to make your own. Once you've made 'em, you can for my collection, or start your own Digital Pog collection.
