Feedtank began with cartwheels, summersaults, and dancing on the sidewalk.o
In the summer of 2004, Jonah Warren and Steven Sanborn joined forces to create a body of interactive artwork for Gaga Gallery in the Lower East Side, NYC. One of their installations, Dance Floor Moves, was projected on the sidewalk in front of the gallery. For the duration of the show, Warren and Sanborn captured the incredibly varied and creative responses of those who passed by. Inspired by the success of the exhibition, Feedtank was formed.
Since then, Feedtank has appeared in WIRED Magazine, been seen on the Discovery Channel, and been interviewed for Adobe Magazine. It has worked on projects for IAC, Adidas , Samsung , Kyocera, NCAA, Brookfield Properties, Crunch Fitness and AMD.
Feedtank has also shown its work in art festivals, museums and galleries around the world, including Art Basel in Miami, FILE Festival in Sao Paulo, DesignEdge Expo in Singapore, Enzimi Festival in Rome, Nextfest in Chicago, Scion Gallery in Los Angeles, and the Chelsea Museum in New York.
