Going to the SFMOMA is always a fun and amazing experience for me. Being back in San Francisco for the holidays, I felt drawn to drop in even though I had not checked out what was exhibiting. I was most impressed by a work done by Rafael Lozano-Hemmer entitled Frequency and Volume.
It's an engaging installation that tunes into radio frequencies based off the length of your shadow. It's really hard to describe, and it something that is better experienced. Relating to a radio frequency through my shadow was an exercise in abstraction. Moreover the piece was constructed to challenge the rights of pirate radio during a tenuous time in Mexico.
If you are in the Bay area, don't sleep and make your way out to check this out. Maybe Kinect developers can get some inspiration from this piece.
