The Creators Project

The Creators Project, 03.18.2012 Origin by United Visual Arts, The Creators Project, Fort MasonSunday morning I stopped by Fort Mason to check out the Intel-sponsored Creators Project. I was told that 6,000 showed up the previous night for the technology-inspired art installations, talks, films & live music. The event has already blogged about itself here. On Sunday morning the installations were still up & being visited mostly by families wandering over from the farmers' market.

The Creators Project, 03.18.2012 The Treachery of Sanctuary by Chris Milk, The Creators Project, Fort MasonI really liked Chris Milk's The Treachery of Sanctuary, in which viewers see their projected silhouettes unnervingly transformed into birds. I was also punished by Barney Clay's Life on Mars Revisited, in which viewers are trapped in a room & blasted with a David Bowie music video played loud enough to break up kidney stones . After it was over, one of the viewers asked, "Do people actually like this?"
