Run your hands over a painting or a sculpture at an art gallery and security will ensure your day spent soaking up culture is immediately over. But artist Robert Cohen has no complaints about people touching his verticalCINEMA sculptures. In fact, that's the only way the flipbook creations can really be enjoyed.
Far more interactive than a painted canvas or a chunk of marble, the verticalCINEMA pieces are the closest one can get to physically interacting with a video. You control the speed and the direction of playback, and you can jump into the clip at any point you want. And, they'll soon be available for order, including custom designs. There's no better way to make your vacation photos actually seem interesting. [artnofood]
