Tyler Bushnell and I spent Saturday at a party at the UCLA Hammer Museum in Westwood. We were slated to bring our Laser Maze but the fire marshall thought the particulates in the fog machine would anger the smoke detectors. We fell back to bringing the party table and 3D game. Despite the setback, I must say the attendees had a ball! There were some great other pieces onsite including a not-so-subtle twist on Rodin's Thinker.

Gradman and I setup a series of interactive installations for the weekend Artwalk event at the brewery 4/18-4/19/09. We exhibited Shadowsmoke, Artfall, the Party Table, the uWink 3D “Marshmallow” game, and the Cloud Mirror. We were busy all day and really enjoyed showcasing all these toys to the excited art goers. Look for us at the next one!
