Summer

August 22nd, 2013

A few weeks ago, Olia Lialina wrote me an email. She wanted me to host .gif file, of course I said yes without asking any questions. I’m a big fan of her work and you might have seen her a .gif before, she’s the Animated GIF Model. 2 weeks ago I received the .gif file and an .html file and it became clear what she was up to. The .gif file was just one frame of an animated gif and several websites would host one and would link to each other. The result: Summer by Olia Lialina. (I’m honored to be part of this list.)

gifmelter

February 27th, 2013

We’ve reached the ultimate stage of the animated gif hype, but here comes the gifmelter to the rescue. You can now MELT your animated gif to achieve a double animated experience. Gifmelter is a project by Chris Shier. Brilliant stuff.

Chris informed me that he was only able to make the gifmelter thanks to gif.js (a javascript renderer which lets the gifs animate properly) by Tim Baker.

Waterfall

February 27th, 2013

This is very subtle animated gif. It was actually generated by code which you could run in Mathematica. This tumblr called archery is full with this kind of stuff.

Here’s the code:

R[n_] := (SeedRandom[n]; RandomReal[])
G[A_, s_, c_, T_, x_] := A*T*Exp[-(x - c)^2/s]

ListAnimate[
 Show[
   Table[
    Plot[
     100 - n + 
     Sum[G[.05, 6, 100*R[n], 
                 Sum[G[1, .01, k - R[2 n], 1, m/100 + t], 
                 {k, -3, 3, 1}], 
                x],
     {n, 1, 100, 1}], 
   {x, -10, 110}],
    PlotStyle -> Directive[Black], PlotRange -> {{-10, 110}, {0, 100.5}},
    Filling -> Axis, FillingStyle -> White, Axes -> False, AspectRatio -> Full, 
    ImageSize -> {500, 700}],
  {n, 0, 100, 1}]],
{t, 0, .95, .5}, AnimationRunning->False]

Perpetual Energy Wasting Machine

October 19th, 2012

Niklas Roy‘s latest and greatest project: the Perpetual Energy Wasting Machine.

“Perpetual Energy Wasting Machine” is a rope and pulley mechanism, installed in the staircase of the WRO Art Center in Wroclaw, Poland. The mechanism connects the sliding doors of the elevator in one floor with the elevator call button on another floor. Operating in two directions on the first and on the second floor, the contraption automatically moves the elevator cabin in an infinite loop between those two levels.
