Virtual Insanity

Thousands of designers around the globe render objects daily on computers hoping to one day see them materialize into actual, tangible objects. We store digital photos as memories and only really print a select or special few to hold and share with others. We are constantly looking for new ways and things to bring our digital world to life. Designer Ingo Schmid takes this passion for digital one giant, unnecessary step further with his “Web is Nut Enough” performance art piece. Billed as “the first analog website in the world”, the stage features four menu items relating to the shows content. Ingo himself plays the cursor and when prompted, his friends join him on stage and perform live music mimicking the MySpace experience. Now if he added the other, more famous MySpace element, millions or barely dressed teenage girls, he might have a real hit on his hands.
