Dan Sandin

 

I participated in my first interactive computer environment in 1969, an exhibit developed with Dan Sandin (who later invented the video-image processor and, in 1976, the data input glove), sculptor Jerry Erdman, and computer science professor, Richard Venezsky. This exhibit, called "Glowflow" was controlled by traditional artistic sensibilities. Basically, it was a sculpture, a computer-controlled, light-and-sound environment. On the walls of a room there were tubes filled with colored phosphorescent pigments suspended in water. The room was otherwise dark, so the glowing tubes defined the space. For instance, the bottom tube represented the floor. As people walked into the room, they saw the tube slanting slightly downward, so they would lean backwards-they thought they were going downhill. It showed the incredibly powerful role that our visual sense plays in defining reality.

Glowflow also incorporated six loud-speakers and spatial sound imaging. Sounds rotated around the room or "bounced" from wall to wall. Controlled by a Digital Equipment Corporation PDP-12 minicomputer, the system ran lights, loudspeakers, and a Moog sound synthesizer.
