Thank you all for making ISEA2008 such an amazing conference!

A day before Closing Night, a Thank You dinner was held to thank all the officials, committee members, volunteers, Artist in Residence participants, and the representatives of the various partnering Labs. Here are the pictures from the party.

Tonight, the media ‘workers’ of SPEKTR! also performed the TheatreWorks space 72-13 at Mohamed sultan Road.  They presented a audio and visual piece mapping 88 frequency zones mashed with years of archived analogue and digital signals.  In Singapore, their presentation was focused on the dynamics of world trade, shipping, aviation and control systems along the Straits of Malacca.  Here are photographs of the event.
