AM Radio's Interactive Art

Let me start off by saying: I don't get it. But it's fun.

Mr. Hotspur O'Toole alerted me to Mr. AM Radio's latest installation, a series of Burlington Northern freight cars in his signature open prairie. In this one, however, the viewer grabs a can of spray paint, which opens up a browser window that allows one to "spray" on a particular car. When finished, a mouse click uploads one's artwork (or "artwork") to Flickr, and then - magic! - onto one of the cars in-world.

The large blue chap with wings, a fedora, and a martini glass is Blue Linden (with unknown female - not moi) (in case the casual reader might think I would possibly dress like that).

More graffiti. And young lady on the left, nipple rings do not constitute covering your breasts.

My anemic effort.
Okay, so what's it all about, Alfie? I have no clue. I'm certain that says more about me than Mr. Radio. But it was fun.

"But it was fun."

I reckon you nailed it there :)

My typist doesn't get to spraypaint much graffiti, so it was indeed a new experience...and I didn't have to listen for the sound of police sirens!
