Brooklyn-based artists John Klima (b. 1965, Redondo Beach, California) originally worked with photographic still life and furniture design until he owned a 286 mHz ibm clone. He developed an obsession for 3D, marveling at the first flight simulators and CAD programs, and began to build 3D graphics objects and write source code, glasbead is a web-based project with a collaborative musical interface allowing players to manipulate and exchange sound sample files. glasbead will be projected large-scale in the Media Z Lounge, where guest DJs will “play” the piece and invite the audience to take part.
