Concentric Selections of Gradient

January 20th, 2014

I’ve been a fan of Jan Robert Leegte for years, his latest website: “Concentric Selections of Gradient“. It has a grey gradient and marching ants, what’s there not to like?

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.)

Hyper Current Living

April 29th, 2013

Hyper Current Living is a performance by Ryder Ripps in which he “lives” and “works” at Red Bull Music Academy between April 28th and May 5th 2013 – he’ll be drinking Red Bull and creating digital stuff at hyper speed. In the stream, our output is valued by its proliferation and its likes and favs – what incentive is there to spend 4 years writing a novel if it will just be a link in a stream lasting a few hours? The piece brings this trait into light by designating a time and space to the creation of such fragmented, short interactions native to social media.”

To be honest, I like it a lot. You can find all his ideas in his twitter stream.

The latest by Evan Roth:

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.

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.

E.m-bed.de/d

March 30th, 2012

Yung Jake released a new music video 2 weeks ago: “E.m-bed.de/d“. It’s not just your average video. You’ll have to experience it yourself, with you browser, preferably Chrome or Firefox. It so far ahead of any other music video …
Today and tomorrow also has a short cameo in it! Great work Jake!
