Cyborg Nation

Cyborg Nation is conceived by Clarinda Mac Low, a performance and installation artist, and Walter Polkosnik, a physicist, hacker and inventor.  Cyborg Nation is built around a self-contained performance environment (SCoPE); miniature technologies built into a wearable, participatory media extravaganza. The SCoPE is a tool for creating performance dialogues anywhere, acting as a nexus for imagination and as an aid to impromptu philosophizing. (video here). The SCoPE allows one-to-one conversation to become a public display.  Intimacy becomes spectacle and strangers find depth in momentary contact. With the SCoPE, performer(s) field and respond to phone calls, images, and email from participants on site and elsewhere; visual information and conversations are amplified and projected. The components of the SCoPE currently include a central controller with wireless, video camera, projector, speakers, cell phone, sensors, microcontrollers, and Pure Data programming altering live feed information.                More about the origins and thought behind Cyborg Nation:  http://culturepush.org/?q=node/150       Video records of Cyborg interactions:  http://culturepush.org/?q=node/658
