ok, blee blah. This lady finds herself brilliant.

Text Rain was ok. But what I think would be really cool is instead of allowing a poem to fall, let random letters fall making serendipitous words. Also I was wondering (but I bet that I already know the answer) if the letters stay on your arms and stuff until you tilted them downward, or if the only thing keeping them up was some video projection of your arm on the screen. Because if the letters moved with you until you dropped them off, you could truely interact with the art to form your own poems and words.

I like the idea of Legible City. I think that instead of doing so many cities on such a large scale, you could have picked one street or one building and constructed an entire interactive space that could be walked into and climbed up and everything with descriptive words glazing entire surfaces.

I'm gonna have to second Flook's comment about it being exciting to see what new sophisticated artists are gonna do with more recent technology. Hopefully blow this lady out of the water.

I think that idea sounds pretty cool. I like the sound of the "game" being more interactive.

It's funny you say more recent artists. Artists contemporray with Utterback may also have been blowing her out of the water, it is hard to tell. Especially since we can not experience the pieces. But, there is one piece which could have been done decades ago with little or no change: Vicissitudes. It could have been mangaed easily with analog technology.

Recently some media researchers insist about analog + digital technologies for the ideal new media. I believe we can't free from a conventional living thins made up with analog. Sometimes this insight is needed for like your idea.
