Biomodd Video

Angelo Vermeulen drops a line to tell us that there's a YouTube video of Biomodd, his project in which he attempts to "fuse installation art, ecology and game culture into a symbiotic mod." We posted about it a while back, but a few people have written about it with more eloquence since then. Athens News explains the project thusly: "BIOMODD IS AN interactive art piece, as people must play a video game to keep the plants inside of the case growing. The game is a modified version of Armagetron, an open-source game for Linux that is based on the 1982 movie "Tron." Most of the materials in Biomodd are recycled, coming from university surplus or thrift stores."
