I wonder if you played the same music would achieve the same form. by playing different levels of frequencies can you control this?! which means the role of the builder is now a musician! you have to design the sound to achieve the construction…! i might have to try this one day!
“Details of an immersive video games display system that projects images of the title’s environment around a player’s room have been revealed in a US patent belonging to Microsoft.”
“Even when focused on the display, the user may perceive architectural and decorative feature of the room the display is in… such features are typically out of context with respect to the displayed image, muting the entertainment potential.”
The firm says the solution is to beam images all over the room so that the gamer’s peripheral vision does not conflict with what they seen on the main screen.
“Tape Melbourne, took eight days to complete, with three artists and fifteen volunteers working nine hours every day. The exhibit used thirty kilometers of tape to build, with more tape to repair and fix the structure on a nightly basis.”

“Lyttle—who once quipped that “tunneling is something that should be talked about without panicking”—became internationally known for the expansive network of tunnels he dug under his East London house. The tunnels eventually became so numerous that the sidewalk in front of his house collapsed, neighbors began to joke that Lyttle might soon “come tunnelling up through the kitchen floor,” and, as a surveyor ominously relayed to an English court, “there is movement in the ground.””
and here is a nice poster showing tunnel digging as a hobby! We should start digging – by the end of next year I will be able to walk home… to London!
just a few images of these MASSIVE light projections on the landscape as a continuation of today’s meeting on land-art and non-site…
These are long exposures of the projection – so the full scheme can only be seen in photographs and they can only be captured during the night…
“These images were produced by direct, large format, light projection. The projector, powered by a mobile generator, was moved from site to site. All of the pieces were photographed at night using long exposures. On moonless nights, the landscape was lit with searchlights. The landforms themselves are quite large, requiring the projector and camera to be, on average, 1/2 mile away from the subject landscape.”
