Talk: InfoArt

The second talk given by the Future Applications Lab people was on Informative art .

Basically, they wanted to see if they could make abstract art serve as an informational display. There were several prototypes:
- Andy Warhol-inspired soup can countdown clock: a grid of soup cans change from one type to another indicating a countdown towards a deadline (pdf)
- Bridget Riley-inspired motion painting: vertical bars in different colors represent motion sensor input (pdf)
- Richard Long-inspired earthquake map: rocks were laid on on green grass indicating locations of earthquakes with no real reference point (pdf).
- Piet Mondrian-inspired weather forecast: color blocks are placed spatially according to an invisiable world map, the color of the block indicates the current weather (e.g. blue=rain, yellow=sun) (pdf)
