The 2010 SIGGRAPH Art Gallery has done away with the old phrase “look but don’t touch.”
The 14 juried pieces exhibited this year absolutely require human interaction with a focus on haptics (touch).

Leonardo is a journal that has a philosophy of combining science, technology and art. Leonardo can be explored at www.leonardo.info.

Hey, I get the manipulation of audience anticipation, but Reborn! simply lacks focus and cogent story telling at the volume level. I learned nothing about these characters, except that they engage in long drawn-out melees.

Author, animator, and 80's cartoon voice reenactor, The Definitive Tim Finn, stops by to discuss coffee-table books, animation based on colors, and 3D Chess.

All is then put classier when the beautiful, the insightful, and the ever effervescent Lorelei Pepi reveals her unorthodox recipe for Italian Wedding Soup, her thoughts on animation and art, and why FFAF's other newest radio game, "Brain Cloning", is a good excuse to beat up on Joel's face.
