AIGA MTG

I was asked by the folks over at AIGA Chicago to work on some video interstitials for their upcoming Annual Members Meeting. It’s turning out to be a really fun project. In our preliminary discussion, we chatted about web-surfing and web-searching. The proposed starting point was simply a search-box with the words “Chicago design” in it.

I love the openness in this approach. A search-field (especially one without an organizational/company logo or affiliation) is a wide-open connector to the neural-networks of the web. One interesting observation that Steven Ryan, AIGA Chicago’s President Elect, noticed while employing the “chicago design” search-field-idea were the scattered red-dot non-sequiturs that appeared on Google Maps. They seem disparate and not connected in any formal way. It is an interesting launching point in light of the fact that AIGA is an organization that strives to connect designers to one another.

My plan is to utilize KML in Google Maps and Google Earth to create the bulk of the footage/data for the pieces. The scattered red-dots also remind me of Chicken Pox, so I plan on using/making Pox Party tracks for the basis of audio.
