powerpoint as art?

As a design firm, we always cringe when we've got to work with PowerPoint. When you're accustomed to working with professional design programs, it's frustrating trying to get a Microsoft program to do things that it's really not capable of.

But for a totally different perspective, check out David Byrne, of Talking Heads fame. He's been an outspoken proponent of PowerPoint for a while, now. And not just as a presentation tool - but as an artist or theatrical tool. Earlier this week, he gave a presentation at Berkeley, where he showcased the good, bad and ugly side of PowerPoint.

"I made a presentation recently that was just colored slides fading in and out, like a rainbow. I put this gospel music to it — it was this wonderful, uplifting celebration," said Byrne.
