EMPAC in motion

Updated with another video Monday night

Sebastien has posted a few video clips from the performances at EMPAC this past weekend. After watching them, it's maybe a little easier to get a sense of how the performances spaces are being/could be used. Here's a clip from the studio space with the 360 degree screen:

Sebastien also has a photo set posted on Flickr.

More video clips -- including a really weird one -- embedded after the jump.

That did not do it for me, but hey, parking was free, right? :)

If you have 3D glasses (the cheap red/blue one), this should show up in 3D.

The best show for me this weekend. Too long, but quite fascinating and oppressing at times.

I have a video of Verdensteatret: Louder coming up in a few days, but I blew up my quota for uploading too many kittens videos. That show was too abstract, too loud, and wayyy too long anyway.

Woah! Thanks for the videos, Sebastien! That first one was incredible. Especially interesting to someone who works with 3D visualizations (me) :) I really hope I can get into that presentation this Friday.

My grandmother has Alzheimers and sometimes comes to stay with us in Troy. Last week the absolutely highlight of her day was seeing the hundreds of crows that came streaming by the window at our apartment. I watched her go from completely unresponsive to engaged... stringing questions together and returning to her old joyful self for the half hour she watched those birds was enough to endear crows to me forever.

If you see someone running around throwing bird seed in Riverfront Park yelling "COME ON DOWN, BIRD FRIENDS!", it's me.

The crows -- and crow trucks -- are returning to Albany
