Calgarian Ways

What about a wire statue of organs, a capacitive button that shows images and the organ value when touched (maybe a projector or print out?).

That or a plush toy with conductive thread to create the capacitive sensor?

I’m currently in Calgary for reading week, it’s not a very inspirational place. I also didn’t bring anything out with me to Calgary. I’m doing a 7 days, 7 subjects, 30 photos a day project for my Media Business class to discover “my style”, but I don’t think it quite applies to New Media. I like macros and detail, but that doesn’t help with defining my New Media style or the way my brain thinks.

  

I also finally watched Dirty Pretty Things (2002) a good movie, I rather enjoyed it. It made me think about how much a kidney is worth. Is it worth an identity (passport), freedom, safety, love, or is there a material value? Have to think about how it all relates. The characters give up their kidneys for a more nobel cause, the manager sells it for money, but the people gave up their kidney for freedom. Though, they may die because of infection.
