LA has an excessive number of brilliant minds, and when you combine that brilliance with playful creativity, you get events like this one. Velvet Interactive Playground, Thursday night, will present a multimedia extravaganza of weird & wonderful.
Artist and inventor Eric Gradman has two installations for partygoers to play with: one is Shadowsmoke, where you can use your shadow to push and effect a projected fluid’s motion on a wall; and the other is the Cloud Mirror, which uses the magic of technology to create a “mirror” of you–complete with thought bubbles overhead (somehow it knows where your face is) intelligently scraped from your own presence on the internet.
There’ll be DJs, drinks & dancing, of course, and a VJ will be mixing live visuals in real time; but the showstopper should be Zombies Without Borders, the latest iteration of the LA troupe of zombie cheerleaders (and bananas) who’ve regularly dazzled Bootie LA with their choreographed-yet-zombiefied dances to mash-ups.
Hot zombie cheerleaders? A mirror that reads my thoughts? I’m there.
