Graphic Arrays

Graphic Arrays by Aram Bartholl.

“Graphic Arrays” is about screen resolutions and aspect ratios and how these evolved over the last decades. The left board is dedicated to more recent mobile vertical resolution ending at iPad retina. The right board represents the long history of desktop screen pixel sizes starting with the classic VGA (640×480) IBM standard from 1987 till today’s common 2560×1600 desktop monsters.

artist statement:
240×320, 240×400, 320×480, 480×640, 480×800, 540×960, 600×960, 600×1024, 640×960, 768×1024, 720×1280, 1366×768, 800×1280, 1080×1920, 1536×2048 640×480, 768×576, 800×600, 1024×600, 1024×768, 1152×720, 1280×720, 1280×768, 1280×800, 1152×864, 1280×960, 1280×1024, 1360×768, 1366×768, 1440×900, 1600×900, 1400×1050, 1680×1050, 1600×1200, 1920×1080, 2048×1152, 1920×1200, 1920×1440, 2560×1440, 2560×1600

Trail Blazers Web Surfing Contest #5

February 3rd, 2013

Today I participated in a contest, a web surfing contest. To be precise: the Trail Blazers Web Surfing Contest #5 at Transmediale 2013 BWPWAP. What’s so special about this web surfing contest?

In seven rounds, eight surfers are sent to specific trails they must complete only by clicking real hyperlinks. During each round a surfer drops out. If after 15 minutes, more than one surfer is still working to reach the goal, a rush to cat/gif/earth-images speeds things up. No keyboard, no Google, no copy/paste … just real hyperlinks!

These were the 7 rounds:

Round 1:
Start here: http://www.amazon.com/
Surf to: http://www.thepiratebay.se/

Round 2:
Start here: http://play.google.com/
Surf to: http://www.itunes.com/

Round 3:
Start here: http://www.instagram.com/
Surf to: http://www.flickr.com/

Round 4:
Start here: http://www.kim.com/
Surf to: http://www.wikileaks.org/

Round 5:
Start here: http://www.lol.com/
Surf to: http://www.nooooooooooooooo.com/

Round 6:
Start here: http://www.so.cl/
Surf to: http://www.pinterest.com/

Round 7:
Start here: http://www.juanna.ch/
Surf to: http://www.gettyimages.com/

So try it yourself, just use your left mouse button.

I made it to the final but I lost. I didn’t find a link to gettyimages.com, only to istockphoto.com
It was a lot of fun. Thanks to Olia Lialina, Dragan Espenschied and The Beautiful Zeros and Ugly Ones.
BTW, the soundtrack was awesome. Here’s the YouTube playlist.

Voltage

January 23rd, 2013

Voltage is the title of Iris van Herpen‘s latest couture collection. 2 outfits are actually 3D printed flexible outfits. The first one is a cape and skirt, which is a collaboration with Neri Oxman from MIT’s Media Lab. The second one is a black dress, a collaboration with the architect Julia Koerner. Both use a different 3D printing technique to achieve these result. The rest of the collection is also worth a look, it’s not like anything else out there.

Lenticular Compositions

January 16th, 2013

Last week I came across this video with 2 lenticular prints made by Rafaël Rozendaal and I immediately wanted to have one. (Any news on selling them Rafaël?) Today I found these paintings by Christopher Derek Bruno on BOOOOOOOM! It’s the same principle but a very different outcome.

Lenticular composition #1: E. Pluribus Unum
