Wake me when they start making entire buildings out of this.

I think the video on Mirror was choreographed for the performance. Not sure it will look like that going forward.

Seeing Terry Riley was sublime.

'Video synced to surroundings' claim sounded very cool, so pretty disappointed by what I saw at the performance. Footage looked extremely generic to the region. I hope & pray we'll be able to see some visual patterns emerge in the display that give a sense of parrying or at least acknowledging its setting. And for god's sake, why not also have real-time feeds coming in from remote cameras? (Or even from NW webcams. The WaMu falcons, digitally remixed, would've been cool to see, no?)

Somebody make a building-sized McLeoud House mirror. That thing on SAM sucks.

You know what would be cool? That big video of the Coca Cola ad that was on the blimp in Blade Runner. I want to see that on there. I have got another view of the piece in motion, shot from a vantage point where you can see the north side of the building too:…

Well take a look at my facebook comment and photos. Terry Riley's piece definately made the piece work. The video was flatfooted and obvious, but with the music it was enhanced. Without the music, not much but ornamental wall paper. Aitkin's is a formalist, about process. Riley's work is conceptual, emphasis on thought, but the poetry creeps in. No poetry in Aitkin!
