Apartment

"Marek Walczak is an artist and architect who is interested in how people participate in physical and virtual spaces. Martin Wattenberg's work centers on the theme of making the invisible visible. Jonathan Feinberg is a musician and computer programmer. Jonathan 'JD' Feinberg, 'The Doctor of Sound,' was They Might Be Giants' first touring drummer. In Apartment you are confronted with a blinking cursor. As you type the room responds, engaging you in conversation, building a home around you. This dwelling is built of spatial image/text fragments, forming an equivalence between the space you inhabit and the mental space of your conversation. Over time the dwelling acquires a history, being a palimpsest of conversations with those that engaged with it. The scratches in the space are made up of images and texts derived from the dwellers' inputs, web searches and translations, organized into clusters of spaces/ideas." -- From Turbulence
