        A video documenting a project I did for the Rough Cut Nation show at the National Portrait Gallery in Edinburgh, Scotland. I got some UV LED's from Patrick Hickey at Nipht Technologies and together with Kristina Johansen designed and built a glove that lets people draw on the walls with their fingertips. The Rough Cut Nation project is a bunch of Scottish artists who took over the Scottish National Portrait Gallery, which is closing for renovation at the end of the summer. They covered the walls with their work, which looks absolutely brilliant. The UV LED stuff fit really well with the whole show, because it gave people the opportunity to paint the walls themselves in a fun and temporary way. You can see another video documenting the rest of the LED creations at the Rough Cut Nation opening here: http://vimeo.com/6020326 The music is by Handface, my old gameboy dance band with Alberto Almarza and Jonathan Brodsky.

          A video documenting a project I did for the Rough Cut Nation show at the Scottish National Portrait Gallery in Edinburgh, Scotland. I got some UV LED's from Patrick Hickey at Nipht Technologies and turned put them into jars and boxes with little buttons. When brought near the walls they made the phosphorus paint glow in lovely magical way.
