End of week fluff – June 2nd 2006

How to spot a liar.

Liars avoid making eye contact and will look to the left when asked a question

I’d disagree with that one as when someone asks me something and I think about the answer it’s like I read from a book or webpage and see the information structured like that, so I’m staring in mid air and moving my eyes from left to right.

Some interesting bits of art:

The Zipper Orchestra.

The screen is filled with 9 video clips from different people zipping and unzipping their clothes. By moving 9 physical sub zippers and 1 main zipper attached in a canvas, users can control the individual zipper motion in the screen as a conductor

Project giant speech bubbles on walls and allow people to text messages into the bubbles.
Well cool.

    Apparently the logic behind the eye thing is that when we’re lying we access the creative side of our brain (the left) rather than the factual/storage side (the right) when we lie, so we look up and to the left. Blinking is another signifier. The mot says it’s pop psychology, not a given.

  2. […] While we continue to experience technical difficulties, I just thought I’d point you towards some Irish stuff to keep you going. The Stunned weblog as ever, delivers kick ass content with every post. The Dublin Community Blog and the Limerick Blogger do their respective areas proud. Damien Mulley has a few good links up at the moment. Given the weather thats in it, Geared Up Blog may be just the place to get primed for the weekend. For more Irish blogging action, some of which is good, but a lot of which is very bad, head on over to the aggregators irishblogs.ie and planet journals. […]
