This is an incredibly hypnotic piece of performance art meets new media meets digital mapping meet projection.

Evan Roth might be having the most fun of anyone in art. Not only did he create an algorithm that allows for his website to come up first when you Google search "bad ass motherfucker," but he is the man behind innovative and inspiring works for both web and the physical world, including the Graffiti Research Lab and Free Art & Technology Lab (F.A.T. Lab), a web based, open source research and development lab. You know that Google Driverless car rampage? That was Roth and friends, and this is our interview with Roth in October 2010.
