onedotzero interactive festival identity

September 14th, 2009 by NearInteraction

Karsten Schmidt and the team ran the first full test of the interactive identity that will take over the western wall of the NFT Southbank from Wednesday 9th September as part of the onedotzero_adventures in motion festival.
Using the Nokia N900, punters will be able to control the live conversations behind the identity – twisting, turning and feeding the aggregated words to help build our first living, breathing onedotzero identity.
Software built by Karsten (in Processing) and Gary working with Maemo 5 (for the not so geeky that’s the new Linux-based operating system on the N900).
