Thirty strangers, one bus, and 72 hours to conceive, build, and launch
a startup. It’s night one on the NYC #StartupBus, teams are formed,
and the ideas are cranking.
Journalist Erica Swallow (http://ericaswallow.com) successfully pitched her idea for a peer-to-peer delivery marketplace, which her newly formed five-person team is calling Deliverish. We’ll be following team Deliverish on their StartupBus journey to SXSW 2013, in Austin, Texas. Stay tuned to see if they take home the victory or facepalm it to the end.
In this real-time brain installation and science experiment, the audience takes on the role of performer and scientific subject. Volunteers engage in silent mutual gaze while their brain activity is displayed in real time, giving insight into their evolving internal experience as well as moments of neural synchrony. The installation continues Abramović’s exploration of human connectedness through non-verbal communication. Following her durational performance The Artist is Present (MoMA 2010), it investigates the transfer of energy between performer, public, and participant.
