Dream House is a generative 3D simulation of a “female” biomorphic architectural structure that dynamically builds up with consumer products over 7 hours. The accumulation of waste occurs in real time and is left up to chance, producingunique randomized animations. Two cameras capture the real time simulation from multiple angles, providing numerous experiences of the same scene. Thepiece is a monument to desire and waste caused by a system that manipulates desire for monetary means.

This installation coincides with Gimme More: Is Augmented Reality the Next Medium?
From February 19 to March 2, Eyebeam alumnus Benton-C will make painterly video portraiture of incoming Eyebeam Bookstore visitors using old-school video gear. Sitters will be altered using hacked wedding video mixers and TiVos that have been wired together, lit by video projection. Past results of Benton-C's project have been compared to the Andy Warhol film portraits in Chelsea Girls. The analog portraits are recorded straight to VHS T-5 tapes. As each T-5 is filled, it's added to a stack of tapes that anyone can pop into a VCR to play for the duration of the exhibition.
