The Author as Pixels: A Studio Visit With Robbie Hunsinger

Robbie Hunsinger's studio is in the Northwest-facing corner of the Chestnut Square building. Two of the walls are practically floor-to-ceiling windows, and the quality of light that results picks up just about every bit of color in the room. It's understandable, then, that I didn't recognize my own face in her computer monitor for the first several minutes that I played with her Wii Remote-controlled hack. That didn't stop me from having fun with it.

Hunsinger will be bringing similar technologies (which are, believe me, much more fascinating than the several pictures I've included below — but you try taking photos with one hand while shaking and rotating and air-guitaring a Wii controller in the other) to this year's SoundCrawl, which takes place Oct. 6-10. She'll be performing at Brick Factory on Wednesday, Oct. 10, from 7-9 p.m., and I highly recommend attending. Imagine a more psychedelic brand of Epcot Center experimentation, or a sophisticated take on Max Headroom.
