A Picture Game

Normally, apps are used to take and share pictures. But, to play games! There is one app out there, called piictu, that could inspire what we make for SIGGRAPH. Pictures could be shared, based on themes or rules:

Charlie Jade:
The show uses the idea of parallel universes, or a multiverse. There are several universes that coexist — each somewhat different than the others. --The Alphaverse, a dystopian view of what our future could be like. It is the home universe of the main character Charlie Jade. The Alphaverse's inhabitants are segregated into "classes" of different levels. It is dominated by gigantic multinational firms. Prime among these is a corporation called Vexcor. Despite the Alphaverse's dystopian society, it does contain some futuristic technology that is within the level of our capability. --The Betaverse, which corresponds to our present day actual reality. --The Gammaverse, a rather idyllic version of our world, what it would be like if the planet's inhabitants made careful use of its resources.

Why the built environment should be enhanced

Nice tale of what was once seen as "extravagant, 'galactic' architecture", and later became accepted as "brightness heralding everything new".

A future vision of downtown LA that might not come true, but has been very 'designed' (and proposes to take over part of the Los Angeles Convention Center):

Interesting interactive experiences

These two seem pretty simple to implement. Maybe something to consider for the Project's Web site, or the physical projection indoors.

This app makes kaleidoscopes; what's interesting is that the geometry is rigid, but the art is hand-drawn:

Website of forgotten 'bookmarks' that a dealer has found in books over the years. This could become 'interesting things' that people might find in a mobile app, as they walk around downtown LA:
