FBX:BOMB kicked off with a live projection art installation on Jan 4. The public was invited to come down on Friday, Jan 4 from 5PM – 8PM to participate. We projected a question/prompt onto the wall and audience members contributed their response via text message. A few seconds later answers appeared on the wall.
