Presentation

Overview

If you are pitching an interesting idea for an interactive installation, it means you have no idea what you’re doing.  None of us should, if the installation we are proposing has never been done before.  We are constantly in situations where we need to make something seem real long enough for us to actually figure out how to make it.

A good styleframe can get you in trouble, but more often it is a powerful tool to make something visible enough to focus large collaborative teams on how to fund, make, program, and design something for realz.

This session is about how to turn a crazy idea into a styleframe when you have limited time, resources and charm.
