Big Sister is an internet sex club - a unique concept that conbines prostitution with elements of social media. Clients have sex for free after they sign a contract agreeing to be filmed. All rooms in the Big Sister house, located in the center of Prague, are equipped with web cams and the ‘action’ streams live via the Internet.
The cameras are operated from a separate studio and the content is transmitted to the Big Sister web site in real time. Tens of thousands of people worldwide enjoy the live virtual reality show for a for a fee paid by credit card on the Big Sister Internet portal. The internet viewers pay for the real visitors’ free pleasure. Is it simply voyeurism or do the viewers become prostitutes of the visitors themselves? The idea shatters the fine line between virtual and actual realities.’

Artist Jonathan Keep has put together a 3D printer to produce digital objects out of clay, and has put together a document to build one:
Based on the delta type of 3D printer my aim has been to use parts that can either be made with basic DIY tools and skills, or ordered off the internet. The design is specifically for printing in clay but could be adapted to work with other materials. Many other self build 3D printers use parts printed in plastic but with this project I did not want to be reliant on already having access to a 3D printer.
Looking at Jonathan’s website (in particular the ‘Digital Pots' section), you will see various series based on various ideas. There is the Random Growth of generative forms, Sound Surface based on musical audio data, and other computational methods.
