Never mind guitar solo’s | ReacTable

Hendrik-Jan Grievink
January 5th 2007


Ever seen a performance of electronic musicians? No matter the genre, these events don't have the reputation of being very lively, rock 'n roll-like experiences. In the best case, you have a good VJ to make up the lack of a visual element in what the people on stage are doing behind their laptops. But now there's The ReacTable®, a device that combines a graphic user interface (GUI) with a hands-on feeling. Sounds are triggered and sequenced by moving objects around on a flat square. Not quite a Jimmy Page guitarsolo, but a small leap in an interesting direction.

Should men be able to give birth to children?

Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
