Watch an Art Project in Progress

Postby Killbuck » Sun Jan 09, 2005 4:42 pm

Hellow fellow burners. I invite you to view an art project for 2005 in progress, and viewable though the internet. The "Miniman Walkee Talkee Land Puppet." Go to:
http://www.mutantvehicle.com/miniman.htm

My associate Mr. Jellyfish and I have yet to actually meet in person, but have begun this project over email, sending designs, ideas, plans, dimensions, and sharing our progress in designing and assembling components. Miniman is now actuall being built. This has been a fasciating experiment in artistic collaboration using up to now, only electrons and photons!!

Mr. Jellyfish is regularly updating the site with progress, photos and our plans, so visit every so often.

Look for Miniman to be born at BRC 2005.. he'll walk, he'll talk, he'll dance--and glow with brilliant elwire illumination at night

Man, I can think of two people you should tell about this project. It might play well with something Swamp Dog is planning to do ... and Martini Man might give you some guidance on mechanical design particularly with articulation of various parts if you run into a snag.

Frikken awesome project!

Geekster-

Tell em to check it out. This has been one of the most hoopie things I've done so far.

Martini Man will appreciate the fact we have worked a cup holder into the design!!

Dance Cards for MiniMan

Postby Mister Jellyfish Mister » Mon Jan 10, 2005 8:22 pm

Thanks, Killbuck. You're a champ for starting this thread, and I am learning a lot working with you.

I promise not to cross-post what is already on the dedicated website. We sure would appreciate any advice or comments offered by anybody here.

Should we consider gifting dance cards for MiniMan?

The E-Art Challenge!!!

Postby Killbuck » Mon Jan 10, 2005 9:00 pm

Hey-- it's ok, it's ART man, it's ART!!

I've long thought that creating an art project collaboratively via email would be cool, I just neer realized HOW cool.

E Art Challenge:

Ok, others... would it not be a fascinating experiment, if a number of artists would work together via email or this board, each one contributing a part, a component, a section... only coordinating between one another with these fiddly bits of sub atomic particles-- back and forth-- then bring their parts, sections and components together as an installation.

Fookin Amazin!

Electrons-- Back atcha!!

Yes, if the project collaborators make that a construction language they all could use remotely.

Check out the Eplaya Camp thread from a few months back - they were discussing having a communal totem pole, where each member made and brought to burningman 1 "totem" (to previously agreed dimensions) that are stacked as people arrive. Maybe even re-arrangine the totems" daily.

Definately a cool idea....

Out upon it then...

It's a cock. Well, actually an anatomically correct microphone facing outward and upward for the ultimate interaction. It is running through some vocoder/robotic-voice-changer circuitry and up through a hacked megaphone in MiniMan's chest.

Talk like THE MAN, baby!
