Summary of Event
Mikon Hall of Worlds is computer controlled pseudo ecology of inflatable sculpture, light sculpture, water sculpture, kinetic sculpture, real-time 3d projection, and real-time MIDI sounds. Parents, children, and infants welcome. MIKON is listed on the rhizome.org artbase, (http://rhizome.org/artbase/selection\_criteria.rhiz) a juried online archive of new media art of 'potential historical significance.' Come on by and see if it is up to snuff.

This month, Mikon Hall of Worlds will give another go at rolling out the world's first pillbug controlled sound and installation environment. Failing that there will be some new quasisessile machine pods sprouting up and about the space.
