Life Dress f2 Related Blog Entries The Life Dress is a wearable piece, depicting the symbiotic relationship of living organisms through an array of LEDs embedded in a dragon skin dress running Conway’s Game of Life.

Parabox - a rubber ducky is contained in a box of mirrored plexiglas and only visible when there is no one closely observing it.

Parabox Interactivity Interactivity is not reactivity. It is frequently confused as such, but distinct. Reactivity is a direct causal reaction to input. You flip a switch, the light turns on.

You can see them as a constant theme throughout Momentary. They derive from an earlier little experiment on perlin noise that I did back […]
