It was in Uppsala, Sweden on the Uppsala Short Film Festival that I for the first time saw the films by John Smith. One of them in particular imprinted in my memory: OM

It was a great pleasure/experience to have Michael FOX conduct workshop @ Interactive Research Lab.
Students from Design and Architecture departments participated in the workshop.
Underground Art: Chris Marker’s “PASSENGERS” Exhibit
Cocteau used to say that at night, statues escape from museums and go walking in the streets. During my peregrinations in the Paris Metro, I sometimes made such unusual encounters. Models of famous painters were still among us, and I was lucky enough to have them sitting in front of me. —Chris Marker
Paris metro PASSENGERS
How did I get to miss this event! Luckily they (Unity technologies) have uploaded a bunch of video material and I can enjoy my coffee watching it now.
I have contributed my reactive installation work titled ENGAGE, CHANGE.

As I am looking in to developing Interactive Environments course @ AUS CAAD I have been advised to check the NETlab toolkit website led by Professor Philip van Allen an initiative of the Media Design Program at Art Center College of Design.
I have to say that this toolkit looks very user friendly and suitable for students who are to face designing for interactions for the first time.
I have attended a presentation of the newly developed film/video color grading system today in Dubai Media City. The event was organized by UAE MediaCast distributor of Blackmagic Design products.
Overall, the performance is quite impressive. System completely relies on the GPU processing power and is developed to use CUDA instructions of the Nvidia graphics cards.
