Slow Motion via Bandwidth Throttling

Create a film meant to be viewed in slow motion. Stream it across a connection that is throttled at exactly the right bandwidth so the video plays in slow motion. Alternatively: add an element of interactivity by creating a force-sensitive sheath for the network cable running to the display computer. When a participant steps on the sheath, the bandwidth is further throttled — "choking" the network connection. Instead of creating a video, consider using YouTube videos. Every time a video loads completely, choose a new one at random.
