Retro computer games for corporeality questions – Bong

July 17, 2010

Following my previous post on freestyle football, check William Linn’s device art work Bong (2009) based on retro computer games and their use in media art, as well as from the corporeality point of view.   The concept is very interesting, especially in the context of comparability with Nintendo Wii Sports and similar iPhone & iPod & iPad applications.

Massage me…

January 17, 2009

You know, I’m not attached a lot to cell phones (I have it because of the people I like, not for myself… most of the time I leave it at the bottom of my bag or a pocket…)… but my computers… my computers are certainly a sort of my friends… sure, they both have names (as many people do it) … Emily and Corto…  Emily is Asus Eee, and Corto is Fujitsu Siemens.

(No. I’m not a Mac user anymore. Sorry! I used to be at the beginning of the century, but I needed for my work PC. Yeah, I know… I’ve betrayed all open minded middle_wanna_be_high_class_population or digital bourgeoisie. Just kiddin’… OK?! )
