The cool people at the CFC Media Lab sent me an invitation to a Toronto early December event with an intriguing logo, featuring the face of Rennaisance star Leonardo da Vinci .
Bringing Leo’s flare into today’s world was the event’s mantra.
Tom Barker (twits @TomBarkerDesign), the event’s mastermind and Toronto based OCAD University’s Digital Futures Initiative Program Chair , was on hand to explain.
And so was Ana Serrano of the CFC Media Lab, as co-organizer.
On the invitation the event promised, among other cool tech-crossover stuff, “sound installations” by alumni of the Digital Futures program. So I attended. And I am happy I did.
The first encounter was with Anne Stevens’ retro-innovative installations.
The next installation by Anne – stereoPHONEic – must be the best mp3 player I’ve ever seen.
Next, I was knocked by a surprising sound installation . And I knocked it back.
Finally, I went to see the DJ – he was moving his hand strangely on top of his kit and I didn’t know why.
