Meredith Finkelstein and I have collaborated on interactive, physical sculptures and experiences as part of The Botmatrix, a robotic art collective. Together we conceived of, designed, and built five robots who acted in Heddatron, an off-Broadway musical that ran at HERE Theater in New York City. We have also performed at Ars Nova, Ensemble Studio both in New York City, and on the Jimmy Fallon Show. The Botmatrix organized the annual The Robot Parade, a parade where participants were encouraged to creatively and performatively express themselves through the aesthetics of robotics.
The Oral Wiki is a voice app to verbally document cases in informal justice systems.
High Five Workshop
Distance Lab has run two High Five workshops where we taught participants how to build electronic devices that express a high five over a distance. In July 2008 we ran a workshop at Madeira Technopolo and in November 2007 we ran a co-located workshop between Forres, Scotland and Sibiu, Romania.
