Notes[edit]

  • Sherwin mentioned this grant to me. He has been thinking about a project he would like to complete for the roof of the Load of Fun building that involved some kind of low res display, that would show things like poetry or perhaps low rez animations. He thought the grant might be a good fit for us. A display on the roof could be seen from Howard st and North Ave and if it is big enough I-83. He mentioned a couple of people doing similar projects we might collaborate with. For $10,000 we could do a pretty cool display. The project period is a year I believe. Perhaps we could find a way for users to add their own poetry, animations to the sign perhaps school children or members of the local community. - Kellyegan 17:00, 23 July 2009 (UTC)
    • I'd be very interested in doing something like this. I have noticed other "hackerspaces" have put themselves out as potential collaborators for art projects by basically offering technical expertise.
    • I would love to do this project too. Here is an old projection project LoF had in 2007. Link Mehuman 20:02, 23 July 2009 (UTC)
