Artist Chris Shen Creates INFRA – A TV Made Out Of 625 Discarded Remote Controls.

Hooray for Jubbling art! Here’s Chris Shen’s description of INFRA:

“625 discarded remote controls, repurposed to broadcast live television using the infrared LEDs inside each device. Creating an infrared display invisible to the naked eye. When viewed through infrared goggles, the light becomes visible and the low resolution TV broadcast can be seen.”

INFRA had me at discardedrepurposed was just the gravy.

The first time I watched the INFRA video above, its low-res image reminded me of the scene in Contact when Jodie Foster receives the grainy video beamed back from space. Anyways, nice to see art that is created from normally discarded items. [Boing Boing]

How Can A New Sports Arena Be ‘Eco-Friendly’ When There’s An Existing Arena Right Down The Street?

Eco Friendly SODO Arena designSeattle sports fans are in a frenzy about professional basketball possibly returning to the Emerald City. Chris Hansen is leading the effort and contingent to bringing an NBA basketball team back is building a new $490 million arena for the franchise in Seattle’s SODO (South Downtown) district. The proposed arena has gone through many changes and the latest design from 360 Architecture is being billed as “eco-friendly.” Here are some of the SODO Arena’s eco-specs (from Seattle Times):

“The architects for investor Chris Hansen on Tuesday also outlined ideas to make the facility environmentally sustainable, from capturing and reusing rainwater to solar heating and generating energy for the surrounding neighborhood.”

All great and definitely better than not having eco-features but it’s still tough for me to buy into this arena because Seattle already has the Key Arena that was renovated in 1995.Key Arena Seattle The 17,000 seat Key Arena has been hosting all levels of basketball, hockey and concerts since the NBA Sonics left in 2008. A little scrub and polish and the Key would be more than adequate to host a NBA team again.

Eco-friendly’ing up the proposed SODO Arena is wonderful. So what would bringing professional basketball back to Seattle and using the existing Key Arena? That would be Jubbling. [Seattle Times]
