Debate Remix

Pursuing our seemly unquenchable thirst for ever more mediated experiences, a few of us went to a live audio/video remix of the presidential debate earlier tonight at Art Interactive. Some quick shots:

While the remix was interesting eye candy at first, it ultimately detracted. They made some attempts at helping us to process the debate — using the closed captioning to count the repetition of certain words, for instance.

It’s still great that they did it, though. What better argument against the broadcast flag?
