PICNIC Interior Design
I know many blog posts about the PICNIC conference from this weekend have been floating around the web the past few days. Most of them discussing the topics covered by the speakers and the future of new media. I was however so blown away by the innovative interior design at PICNIC and felt it deserved some attention.
A scrolling, flashing light that said “Not Your Ordinary”. The main dome had several different areas set up like a digital utopian park.
A Twitter tree. You can go up to a pillow, have a seat and connect your laptop/iphone and tweet about PICNIC. The tweets were displayed on a screen above the tree.
Guys playing video games instead of attending a conference session.
Psuedo living rooms were scattered about the conference.
A very entertaining performance art piece that occurred throughout the conference in different locations.
