“Art is a tool of empowerment and social change, and I consider myself
blessed to be able to create and use my work to promote health reform,
bring awareness about ALS and help others.”

– Tony Quan, aka Tempt One

Members of Free Art and Technology (FAT), OpenFrameworks, the
Graffiti Research Lab, and The Ebeling Group communities have teamed-up
with a legendary LA graffiti writer, publisher and activist, named Tony
Quan, aka TEMPTONE. Tony was diagnosed with ALS in 2003, a disease
which has left him almost completely physically paralyzed… except for
his eyes. This international team is working together to create a
low-cost, open source eye-tracking system that will allow ALS patients
to draw using just their eyes. The long-term goal is to create a
professional/social network of software developers, hardware hackers,
urban projection artists and ALS patients from around the world who are
using local materials and open source research to creatively connect
and make eye art.

The team:

The core development teams consists of members of Free Art and Technology (FAT), OpenFrameworks and the Graffiti Resarch Lab: Tony Quan, Evan Roth, Chris Sugrue, Zach Lieberman,Theo Watson and James Powderly.

With support from: The Ebeling Group, the Not Impossible Foundation and Parsons Communication Design & Technology.

Many thanks to: Keith Pasko, LM4K, Eleanor Dunk, Jamie Wilkinson, and Greg Leuch.
