Golan Levin (Artist Presentation) - Nick Gentle
Golan Levin is a new media artist exploring new modes of what he calls "reactive expression". Levin's academic credentials include a bachelors degree in Art and Design from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) as well as a Masters degree in Media Arts and Sciences from the MIT Media Lab. The bottom line; he's a (very much so) tech savvy artist that enjoys the interactivity aspect of art.
I think Wikipedia explains his line of interest in his artist work the best. He's experimented with a number of different technologies, the most notable being his "Cell Phone Symphony" where he programmed thousands of cell phone ring tones to sound at his command, simulating an orchestral experience in an auditorium setting. This is a very unique take on venturing away from the primary utilitarian purpose of a cellular phone.
Here is a link to his website. A decent portion of his projects have been in collaboration with another artist in the interactive field.
