Let the games begin
The sun sets over the Hollywood Walk of Fame as the design geeks begin lining up outside the Music Box theater in LA for the Cut&Paste Digital Design Tournament, and their own small, but intoxicating, taste of stardom.
Inspired by breakdancing and DJ face-offs and taking advantage of advanced work station and projection technologies, the worldwide competition turns the normally invisible process of digital design into performance art and a spectator sport. At the same time, it gives designers and design junkies an excuse to escape their studios and do a little schmoozing, socializing, and--simply put--partying.
The tournament hits Berlin Saturday night--after a stop in London, and last month's events in New York, San Francisco, and LA--and then moves on to Latin America and Asia. The grand finale happens in New York in February, as the local winners worldwide come together for the ultimate smack-down. (The tournament can also be viewed online.)
