We Ping Good Things To Life

An Interactive Networked Installation in 5 Acts

February 2012

Supported by Jerome Foundation

We Ping Good Things To Life was an ever evolving and expanding interactive networked installation that brought together elements of Toy Theater, Vaudeville performance, Surrealism, and consumer culture. Users could activate dozens of found and appropriated objects to create a unique performance, alone or with others, via the live streaming video feed.

Act 1: Remember When We Used To Have Fun?

Act 2: Play For Me

Act 3: America’s Favorite

Act 4: Some People Would Give Their Arm For The Privilege

Act 5: The Fifth Greatest Show On Earth
