       The free and first ever “Wired: Next Fest” exhibit in Millenium park will be open through Sunday. The exhibit features new technologies and concepts for sustainable products. The event, hoping viewers will “experience the future,” according to it’s website, is sponsored by CitiBank, Toyota and Xerox, and began Sept. 28.

    As well as sustainable design, the exhibit features information and examples of next generation healthcare as well as interactive art and design.

    Pictured above is “Cell Phone Disco” a light show which is composed of sensors of the surrounding electromagnetic field of active phones. In this a viewer is also a creator, as they participate in where the work goes.

    Another form of interactive art on display is Eric Natzke’s Art of Play, a series of 9-foot wide prints created with the Flash computer software. Natzke has created a way to take viewers through the creation process with a video that shows his designs being made.
