Tiletoy Independence

This might just look like yet another post involving Tiletoys and triangles. But these triangles are different. Instead of being controlled by a computer the tile displaying the number of active connections is now acting as the server. It processes the data received from the tiles and tells them what do display. Which in this case happens to be more triangles. I promise something more interesting than triangles next time. But for now check out the video below for more triangular goodness.

Washington, opening

Opening was a success. Over 200 visitors and people cueing in on saturday when The Washington Post published an article on Sauma. Now back in Finland, jet-lagged, but happy.

Washington, Day n?

After undefined number of long days the exhibition starts to emerge from a heap of packaging garbage. Tiles are still working, some delay in radio, probably due to the massive espionage, counter-espionage and jamming of counter-espionage signals in the embassy neighbourhood. I'm waiting for stealth messages to appear on the tiles like: "Cool tiles dude, yours, CIA".

Washington, Day1

The first day of setting up Sauma exhibition in the gallery space of Finnish Embassy in Washingon DC. All tiles survived the trip to here and the demo set is already bolted on the table top. Looking good. October in DC is like hot summer in Finland which calls for some barbeque action tonight.
