About ten days ago I went to a technology festival in DUMBO held by The Creators Project. I came early and walked around looking at the art and installations all day and all of it was very interesting. Of course I have my favorits and I’ve picked out three experiences that I thought were the best.
1. Super Pong created by SuperÜber is an interactive installation where two teams play against each other. The game is a mashup of the old Atari game Pong and Table Football. It was so much fun playing the game that me and my friends kept coming back to play!
2. Origin created by United Visual Artists (UVA) was an enormous light installation. The grid structure measured 10x10x10 meters and was fitted with LED lights that was hooked up to a computer. UVA composed moving patterns synced with sounds. The audience inhabited the bottom of the structure and enjoyed the show. I was very nice experience and I impressed with the size, but a little disappointed about the lack of interactiveness. That aside is was very good!
3. Performance by Justice! I’m a big fan of Justice and this was only going to be af DJ set, but it turned out that they played some of the stuff from the new cd “Audio, Video, Disco” that came out on the 25th of October. It was an awesome performance that unfortunately got shut down by the NYPD.

Last but not least here is a recap of events made by the creators Project themselves.
All in all I had a great day in DUMBO with a lot of cool installations and great performances! If any of you went let me hear what you thought of it.
