This video is comprised of two work samples by artist, Ryan Holsopple and his work with the theater companies 31 Down and Radiohole.
31 Down's Canal Street Station, an interactive pay phone mystery set in the Canal St. subway station presented by free103point9 Transmission Arts. Participants dialed a toll-free 1-800 number to access the game logic, moving throughout the Canal street subway station answering clues described in the game. This sample features a story for NPR by Mike Pesca. This piece used the phone network and a Linux based Asterisk phone system as the back-end. This work was designed, written and programmed by Ryan Holsopple.
The second clip has Radiohole's Eric Dyer as the monster Frankenstein as using an iPhone app called Mobiola that enabled him to use his phone as a networked live camera and his face was projected on the heads of the cast members after dousing their heads with an unctuous substance we nicknamed 'flubber.'
