Theo: A short introduction: KATSU, a long time collaborator with FAT and GRL has joined FAT as an Artist in Residence. KATSU has had long had a unique approach to graffiti and hacking urban environments. This post is a short introduction to some of his existing work. Expect to see a bunch of new hybrid work during this A.I.R that extends in all directions.
How many have left a mark that can be seen from space?

Begin Katsu:
I’m a graffiti writer/vandal/slimer working in New York City. I’ve been involved in graffiti for over 15 years.  I love graffiti and feel that it’s time to really change shit up. Traditional graffiti methods are powerful but the combination of graff and tech can be absolutely LETHAL.

My goals as KATSU are to motivate vandals and accumulate FT’s.

I have turned graffiti into a game for myself where the objective is to gain “FT’s” or “FameTokens tm.” in the most effective ways possible. Any and all FT’s are good for business so placing my name in people’s lives, and in unique ways is the main objective.

Because I’m new to F.A.T. I figured I should show off some of the things I’ve made. I’m very excited to meet the crew and get grinding on some sick ideas.

Powers video – homage to eames powers of 10 film.  shortlisted for guggenheim show

Mochaccino – “world’s largest graffiti exhibition”?  sounds perfect to me.

Picasso – barely made it out of this one.

Obama’s crib – had my friend waiting on a suzuki gsxr to get me the fuck out of there

Fire Safety – kids need new toys

Fire Hazard – my new toy

Kinect Russian Roulette is a speed project by Theo Watson, which allows you to play Russian Roulette with just your hand and a Kinect.

The project was made in 3 hours at the Art Hack Day at 319 Scholes and is made with openFrameworks 007 and ofxKinect.

This project is tongue and cheek and is not endorsed by anyone or any brand. Just a ridiculous idea which needed to be made :)

Code ( very messy ) will be posted to github.

Kyle McDonald and I will be developing a new project at the upcoming Art Hack Day in Brooklyn, which culminates in a public art exhibition at 319 Scholes on Saturday, 1/28 at 7pm.

Internet, you are invited to attend. There will be art, technology, free beer (as in beer) and free source code (as in speech). and $3 beers. The source code remains free.

Over the next few days Kyle and I will be working on the first prototypes of Scratch Markup Language, an open-source system for capturing, describing and digitizing turntablism.

Want to get involved? Sign up for the ScratchML mailing list, follow @scratchML on GitHub or join #fatlab IRC and ping @jamiew

The USB ports on my computer are treated with respect. However sometimes I am in a hurry and do not have the time to properly “eject”. I feel very bad for my computer because I know it’s not voicing how it actually feels every time I insert or “eject”.

Every time you insert or “eject” any USB device your computer makes a sexual moan. The noise could be a woman’s moan, a dog bark who knows, a scream, no matter what it is shit would be ill.

People should have more expressive experiences with their comps (companions-computer).

I aint a programmer.  is this a difficult task?  am i a sicko?
