Monster Maker at MoMA

One of the most delightful exhibits we saw at MoMA, part of the Design and the Elastic Mind special exhibit, was an interactive monster maker that would turn your silhouette into a monster by adding fins, scales, eyeballs and other protrusions on the screen in front of you. It also grunted, roared and made other sound effects. I held my arms out like an alligator mouth, and teeth showed up on them. And if you made shadow puppets, eyeballs would often show up — see the guy on the left in the photo.
