Thanks for all the video tips, you guys… here’s what I’ve got so far.
I sorta adore this hula hoop – it’s a Phoenix hoop from SpinFX. You can upload .bmp files to it and it translates them to persistence of vision patterns that play on the hoop. You can also write a script to go along with your song and play certain patterns at time markers you specify.
I’ve performed this piece 3 times for audiences so far, and it seems to be very well received by both 10 year old girls and Burners… Let me know what you think!
