August 3, 2007
This Saturday, Sunday, and Monday UCSD’s Calit2 and CRCA will host a great selection of performances, installations, and screenings in collaboration with the SIGGRAPH 2007 Art Gallery. You can see “Crossing the Line” (Peter Jackson’s 4k short film), “Takashi’s Season” (live shadow puppets combined with animation), ATLAS in Silico (playful interaction with our new metaphor for life, metagenomics, on a 100 million pixel display), my collaborative literary game project Screen (running on a 12-screen version of UCSD’s new StarCave), and much more.
Members of the public are invited to volunteer, whereas those who are registered for SIGGRAPH (at any level) can sign up at the convention center (there are shuttles to UCSD every 20 minutes). If you’re not yet planning to come to SIGGRAPH, consider signing up for an “Exhibits Plus One Day” pass ($40) to see the sights at the convention center and register for the three days of art at UCSD. If you’re in town for Sandbox, early to SIGGRAPH, or just located near enough to come by, you’re in for a treat.
