Evan Roth does art & software for the bored-at-work crowd

The Next Web 2010

Evan Roth, the final keynote speaker at The Next Web Conference 2010, wowed the crowd with his open source software and art projects.

Roth lives in Paris and has gained a lot of attention with the Graffiti Analysis 2.0 project: “A digital graffiti blackbook designed for documenting more than just ink.”

Hermione (The Next Web’s co-MC) admitted being in tears after watching his movie about the EyeWriter where Tony Quan, aka TEMPTONE, who was diagnosed with ALS in 2003, a disease which has left him almost completely physically paralyzed… except for his eyes, is hooked up to a futuristic device which allows him to write graffiti, with light, on huge buildings.

Roth has made art out Michael Jackson’s first moon walk on TV, art for a Jay-Z music video and with WordPress’s founder to build “humanize” into the WordPress dashboard, which (if enabled) does things such as show an inspirational full-screen video when you hit ‘publish’.

He closed with a hilarious spoof video of the Google Street Car he and others made in Berlin and then with his EyeWriter project.
