It seems there is a group here who is interested in this project, so,  
given the short amount of time before proposals are due if we are  
seriously going to attempt this there should maybe be a real-life meet- 
up some time in the next week.  911 Media Arts Center would donate  
space for such a meeting, plus that's where the exhibit will be at, so  
it might be useful just to be there and see what resources are  
available.

a good way to do this is to set up a server in the exhibition space  
that receives inputs from various devices (camera, microphone, text  
messages) and then outputs an xml stream, or OSC possibly, via one of  
it's ports over the network (wireless, got some latency, but no  
wires).  Then a huge variety of computer based pieces could receive  
that data and react to it.

The question then becomes what software would allow this to happen?   
The only programming language I'm familiar enough with that could do  
this is Processing ( http://processing.org ) - I know that it can send  
and receive network data, and can take camera, microphone etc. input.   
If anyone else reading here has another idea of how to go about it  
(maybe Pure Data?) then speak up!



anyhoo, that's my two cents.

Cheers,
-Joe
