[ISEA2006] Artists Statement: Karrie Karahalios, Judith Donath, Tony Bergstrom, Jeff Goldenson, Francis Lam, Aaron Zinman & Christine Liu – Chit Chat Club

Artists Statement

Venue: C4F3

Chit Chat Club is an installation consisting of three telematically inhabitable chairs. Each chair is placed at a table, and can be accessed by a remote visitor who, through the chair, participates in conversations with visitors seated in the C4F3. One chair is humanoid, and its facial expressions are determined by the remote users voice and actions. Another employs expressive typography, using large scale to give this everyday medium dynamic presence. The third chair uses graphics and voice to enable a rich communicative experience.
