   The City Hall gallery is hosting some really fun tech art until August
8! Anna Eyler and Nicolas Lapointe have filled the space with weird
machines and quirky videos.

   Nicolas Lapointe has produced a series of machines that predict the
future, read secret messages off of marble, and orbit endlessly like
virtual satellites. Lots of clever ideas and beautiful execution - I am
particularly in love with this furry ... space pod?

   I am also in love with Anna Eyler's hilarious video "How to Explain Love
to a Measuring Tape" - she roamed around through Second Life looking for
beautiful scenery, changed her avatar to geometric shapes and then animated
them with erotic motion capture data. Cubes and cylinders get busy out in
the virtual desert and up in trees and on the beach.
   I know it's supposed to be about exploring gender and sexuality and
thinking beyond our corporal forms, but it made me laugh so hard when I
figured out what was going on. (It was those lurid gyrating tubes that gave
away the process)
   You can get a sneak peek here:
   (Caution - this is NSFW if your co-workers are literal cylinders and
cubes)
