San Francisco experimental art space The LAB is hosting a 3 day art/tech festival this weekend. The festival features art exhibits, lectures, DIY workshops, demos, and a variety of performances. The whole program looks terrific! The Lab's Michael Delong pointed me to several interactive videogame sessions that he's especially jazzed about:
-1pm on Saturday Shawn Wallace will demo Fluxly, a game in which
participants make their own microcontrollers to compete in wizard duels,
while The Lab serves post-brunch mimosas
-5pm on Saturday Retronyms will give a talk and then lead a game of Seek 'n
Spell, an iPhone app game that is essentially a giant interactive version of
Scrabble, while The Lab will run a 2-for-1 Hangar One Vodka drink special
-4pm on Sunday Nick Lally will invite the audience to use their whole bodies
as avatars in an open source game called Silhouettes
