ok.. DM exhibition finish at last. it was a worthy exhibition and also it was great to see comments from professionals and not to forget other lecturers. pretty shocked because muidlatif was there also since he’s the representative from mdec. the comment from him is i have to really2 take care about the content cause at first it seems like a journey of butterfly and after that it is an interactive storytelling of the relationship of butterfly and statement someone’s coming. the graphic was ok he qouted : ( somewhat like this ) “it’s a very good achivement if you can make people remember/recognize of your work and i think this is memorable enough” . not to forget mr tajalli pointed out some critical flaw on our installation – ” your steps has no direction and can mislead the user.. which pad should i step first? it just said please step further. “
another one thing is i am a grateful grapefruit [ ok i’m stealing bjork line >:) ]. mr chris funkhouser also coming and he evaluate both of my work which is interactive installation [ the butterfly vision : psst…. someone’s coming ] and the multimedia based entertainment ( shortname : GAME ) which is Azimat Awang Miskin. for interactive installation, he said the graphics was really nice and it was a very complex scripting. [ YES !!!! the scripting was sooo hard and thanks sabau! ] and a new style of random stroy telling and interactivity. for game, he said it was a good effort to promote idioms( kata pepatah ) yet promoting local stories and content. ok the idiom voice in malay [ thanks zufar for the voiceover ] so i need to translate each idiom into english. i think mr chris was almost laugh out louuuuud by listening to the voiceover while i’m translating it.

diam² ubi berisi, diam² besi berkarat : even the tapioca stays still.. it is growing.. but steels .. it’s going to rust [ WTH i’m translating.. bwahahahhaha ]
