2006 Rockefeller New Media Foundation Proposal
Sarff, Michael and Tim Whidden
Choose Your Own Conversation (CYOC) Two touch screens hang side by side in a wall-mounted case. On the screens the artist collaborative MTAA (M.River & T.Whid) talk about culture, politics, New York City, art, technology, and the meaning of life. Although MTAA is speaking, Choose Your Own Conversation asks the viewer to direct the dialogue. Is T.Whid talking smack? Should M.River give him a verbal beat-down? Or is it "all good" with the world today? In this artwork, you decide.
