    http://www.touchtouchy.com http://www.facebook.com/touchycamera Touchy is a human camera, who is blinded constantly until someone’s touch enables the opening of the automated shutters. While a continuous physical contact is maintained between Touchy and a user, the camera shoots a photo every 10 seconds. Touchyは人間カメラです。 Touchyは誰かが触れることでシャッターを開けるまでは、視界が全くの暗闇に包まれています。 連続してTouchyに触れ続けることで、10秒ごとに写真を撮影します。 Touchy是一個人類照相機,他的視覺一直被一對快門封閉著直至別人觸碰他的皮膚才能解放他的眼睛。每當身體接觸持續10秒 ,Touchy就會為你拍攝一張照片 。 www.touchtouchy.com Video Credits Director: Eric Siu Cast: Hikaru Shimada, Eric Siu Cameraman: William Tang Production Assistant: Tomohiko Hayakawa and Shion Fujiwara Editor: Eric Siu Music: Dr Usui Special Thanks Yanyan Mak, Akira Reynolds, Carson Reynolds and Yoshiko Reynolds Project Credits Artist Eric Siu Hardware and Software Development Tomohiko Hayakawa and Eric Siu Touch Sensor Design Tomohiko Hayakawa and Carson Reynolds Project Adviser Novmichi Tosa @ Maywa Denki Motor Provider Koshin Denki Kogyo Co.

        This archive file was compiled from audio and video documentation of a gathering of medical professionals, inventors & entrepreneurs, held at Singularity University in California, February 2013. The selected material gives a portrait of a time in which the field of health found itself at a crossroads between the mature medical institutions which had slowly evolved over hundreds of years, and a need to develop and integrate new, more flexible and scalable forms of care.

                  The intention was to coordinate our Hair/Wardrobe/Makeup and Production Teams... It was a resounding success, as well as the catalyst for much improvement next 'go-round'. I make no apologies for the rough hack and slash edit job...This piece remains simply a document, a sketchbook of ideas. "Thank you all for making this event a success..."

                    “Silenced Yet Speaking” (1996) is an interplay of poetry, allegory and soliloquy. Although the viewer cannot hear the words, their meaning becomes secondary to the trance-like image playing to an electronic mix, animating into a series of repetitious movements. The concept of "Silenced yet Speaking" reflects upon the Humanist approach to "man" and the influence of male-dominant themes in the arts and the lack of the female voice - the human, cyborg, transhuman and posthuman. Produced by BBC Films UK Directed by Christopher Spencer Cast: Natasha Vita-More Script: Karen Editor: LA Video

Bobvan draws on science and science-fiction metaphors to build Artificial Mythology, a poetic vision of our techno-human identity in these times of technological acceleration, a quest for meaning and beauty as we venture out into the solar system. www.bobvan.net
