Chat puts gaming social awkwardness into physical space


Berlin-based media/game artist Aram Bartholl’s “Chat” project interjects the virtual chat stylings of online gaming into the physical world. Featuring a keyboard that hangs in front of the “chatter” and a giant illuminated speech bubble overhead, the wearer can type any message and have it show up in lights. The next step would be to network the bubbles and hook them up to a WoW session to grab someone else’s “virtual” conversations.
