the long version:
project title: spring planting
project summary:
(please see pdf above)
spring planting, a new media installation, grows like a garden. anyone can interact with the piece online and in the exhibition space.

prior to the exhibition, participants take daily pictures of a seed becoming a plant. photos are submitted and edited into time-lapse video clips. printed out, those photographs documenting growth become collage elements.

during the exhibition, visitors add the photos of the developing plants to a growing collage on the wall. simultaneously, online visitors arrange video clips, which are projected onto the same wall. the result is a continually growing new media "garden," which is nurtured by viewer-creators in both virtual and real space.

ricky and vineel each have several years of expertise creating a wide variety of interactive web-based platforms. they are willing to make sure i can learn how to do some things i donít have much experience with (e.g., projecting live user-manipulated imagery from a website) when i run into difficulties on my own. my new media work has been made possible with guidance iíve received from vineel and other technology experts.
