“3 Dreams of Black” is a new interactive film directed by Chris Milk for the song “Black” by ROME, a music project by Danger Mouse & Daniele Luppi featuring Jack White & Norah Jones. The project is a Chrome Experiment that showcases some of the latest web technologies like WebGL in modern browsers like Google Chrome.
Not only can you interact with video, you can also add your own items to the dream or see what others have build. For those of you who want to know the technical details: this page will keep you busy for a while. The model view and the demos are just as impressive.
Aaron Koblin was the creative director of this project and Mr.doob the technical director and of course a bunch of really talented people. You might also want to check out “The Wilderness Downtown“, a project with many people who were also involved in this one.

Here’s another project by Mark Beasley: Icemelt. An arduino and CRT monitor powered off of a 12v car battery.

As the battery dies the ice cube melts until the battery looses the capacity to power either device. You can watch a video of it here.

One of his latest projects is called Quadratura, a site-specific installation presented at Matadero Madrid, Spain.
