Abe Lincoln Wants You to Crack Someone! featured in 1440 Minutes: An Evening of Installation and Performance Art at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs on April 11, 2008. Goatsilk created a scenario in which members of the viewing audience engaged in one on one live action battles to make a stranger laugh via video feed from two isolated “booths.” The cameras broadcast live feeds in two places. The transmission was projected onto the outside wall of the booths (for audience viewing) as well as inside each private booth (for the competitors inside).
