"Your Two Cents"
Grand Opening Reception
Thursday, March 22, 5-8 PM
Warehouse Art Complex
1017 7th St. NW,
Washington, DC

Your 2 Cents is an interactive kiosk where interactors can record 30 second video-taped responses to questions posed by an animated interviewer. Responses are saved in Y2C's massive database and are played back for others to view and reinterpret.
We address important topics in Y2C such as cigarette smoking and TV commercials to help us help you understand what people are really thinking and doing. Participants can ham it up or get serious. Either way, we'll help them shape the message we know is lurking deep within them.
Have you had your interaction today? Don't miss out on this responsive spectacle in media and art.
Y2C is a collaborative effort which builds on work the artists exhibited at Artomatic 2004 where they met. Philip Kohn, an imaging research scientist at NIH developed facial tracking software used in the playback that 'keeps an eye' on you and enables the computer to add effects to your image. The computer was built by Thomas Edwards a robotic artist, engineer and founder of DC Dorkbot. Animation is provided by digital artist Brian Judy. Development and content is contributed by conceptual/installation artist Claudia Vess.
