>> Interactive Digital Art Installations:

LUZIDEN: In dem Träumenden Gehirn

An interactive video triptych that plunges the viewer into the surreal world of lucid dreams and the collective unconscious. Created using concepts and material from actual dreams gathered by the artist, Luziden allows the viewer to produce a unique visual and aural dream-state through interaction with a MIDI keyboard. By turns beautiful, hilarious, and disturbing, this is one piece you won't want to miss.

Too often, many feel alienated from technological art and media because it's inaccessibly expensive or the learning curve is too steep. This piece puts you squarely in the driver's seat, manipulating objects on a backlit table. A live video feed is processed in realtime and projected for all to see. Best of all, it requires no prior knowledge, and lets you grab your work online later!

David London's SCOPOSCOPE

Scoposcope organically generates color, light, shape and design through the use of kaleidoscopic video feedback*, glass & acrylic spheres, and LCD technology.

We are also running two contests for this event: Register for it separately with the given email addresses. There will be great prizes which we will reveal pretty soon.

1. District Dwellers - A Poster Design Contest

What does DC mean to you? Whether it be a restaurant, a park, a street or a small corner, you have made DC your personal space. We want you to promote it. Use this canvas to capture the essence of your DC space. Then turn it into a poster that will hang amongst many recreating all the spaces across the District. Think of it as a contest that celebrates the city and its creative residents.

To contribute, simply submit a poster design that could be promoted right in your 'hood. As dwellers of the district, we all have a space we feel connected to. Express it—whatever that means—in something that can be printed at 11x17. All submissions will be voted on by a jury of DCDB members and artists throughout Washington, DC.

Together, we'll raise awareness and support the creative artists living in our Nation's Capital.

All entries/questions must be submitted to:

2. Design Pong - Live Design Contest

You can design. You meet quick deadlines on a daily basis. You collaborate with peers, art directors, copywriters, and more. Now it is your time to shine. We need you! Join or create a team of three to face off head to head in a live additive design contest. Meet the challenges thrown at you by our DCDB volunteers, gain the approval of the crowd and claim yourself victorious in a game we call Design Pong. Interested? Want more details?

Participates Required:  2-6
Duration: 2 hours (split into 3 30min design rounds, and 3 10min judging sessions)
Materials Needed: One laptop per team, design materials-- all imagery, fonts, etc. to be used during contest.
Materials Provided: Hook up to projector

Participates will be divided into two teams of three.

Contest will consist of three rounds. Each member will take a 30min turn at the mouse.

Each round will have a design challenge to meet, at the end of 30min the judges will award a point to the winning team.

For the final round, round 3, the crowd will also be given judging power. A total of 2 points will be awarded in round three.

Should there be a tie between the teams, a design off will be used as a tie breaker. A shortened version of the contest. Each member will get 5min at the mouse. Whoever best completes the tie breaker challenge wins.
