9/26 FESTIVAL OPENING @ Galapagos Art Space, 16 Main Street
7:30pm Screening of 'in complete world' by Shelly Silver followed by
8:30pm HACK THE DEBATE IN 3D! + after debate audiovisuals by Lady Firefly

video_dumbo presents Current TV's 'Hack the Debate,' an interactive broadcast of the first presidential debate. For visual enhancement, video_dumbo will transform the Broadcast into 3D! 'Hack the Debate' will, for the very first time, integrate real-time Twitter messages (aka 'tweets') over major portions of a live television broadcast. As Twitter users tweet throughout the course of the live broadcasts, Current and Twitter will collect comments regarding the debate and layer the individual messages over the debate feed. In addition, the debate will appear in three-dimensional space, based on a new polarized filter technique called Chroma-depth®. Ironically, this stereoscopic system is based on the colors RED and BLUE. Each object displayed in those colors will create the illusion of either protrude out of the screen, or retract behind the screen - creating a true stage for this political theater.
