Spoon Missing

by Nick Montfort · , 9:30 pm

I got word of a very interesting-sounding, Rashomon-inspired, Queneau-inspired, RFID-enabled piece going up at the Beall Center in Irvine, California on January 18. It’s by Brian House (of Yellow Arrow) and Sue Huang, and is called 5 ’til 12:

The Beall Center becomes the site of a nonlinear narrative with Knifeandfork’s immersive installation, 5 ’til 12. The visitor is invited to watch four characters, on four monitors, as they recount the tragic circumstances of the exhibition’s opening night. The experience is unique for each visitor, as each story has most likely never been heard before… and won’t ever be heard again.
