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.

FYI, top to bottom, this is:

Workspace Unlimited: Hybrid Space and the Panoramic Screen

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

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

dumb type: Voyage:
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.

... the Helderberg neighborhood is fabulous for Trick or Treating, maybe too much so. We always see families coming from other parts of Albany by the van load - being dropped off at one end and working their way to the other. Lots of houses in friendly neighborhoods = a packed and good time. It is also rumored that a few adults dress up and roam the streets handing out adult beverages to other adults. Again, just a rumor...
