Joe Mckay

Joe Mckay, ‘Sunset Solitaire’

In this performance/video/game Mckay wrote a program and built custom hardware that allowed him to mix the sunset live. He then projected with a video projector, from his computer onto a garage in a field behind his studio. As the sun set behind the building he attempted to match the color of the sunset with the projector.

(Also, I want to share this with you: A website, by Mckay, on how to remove targeted ads in Gmail.)
