Fishing in the Poi Pond of Digital Art

597px-poi_circles.jpgI am sitting at the extensive marbled bar enjoying a Bong Vodka and tonic watching electric LED balls on the ends of long, thin ropes spiral fluid abstract designs in the smoky air of the club. Club-goers stand aside to watch the mesmerizing, vibrant stunt.  I remember days of glow sticks gone by and wondered what the origin was of such a fantastic idea!  As we head into the new millennia, I notice that almost every form of digital art has evolved from its manual predecessor.  This dizzying performance art was no different.
