Network Time

February 23rd, 2012

Network Time by Spiros Hadjidjanos.

The installation Network Time consists of several Wi-Fi routers arranged in the gallery space providing free Internet access to visitors. The LED that reflects the data-traffic of each router is extended along a fiber optic cable magnifying its flicker. Although the devices look only physically modified, the artist has altered the operating system of each router, to manipulate the fluctuation of the fiber optics. The installation is a network architecture installed in a physical setting, framing information as situated, temporal and contextual, constructing a permeable interactive and extended space.

Once Upon

December 8th, 2011

Once Upon” are three important contemporary web sites, recreated with technology and spirit of late 1997, according to the memories of Olia Lialina & Dragan Espenschied. They created a 1997 version of Google+, YouTube and facebook, all optimized for Netscape Navigator 4.03, running under Windows 95. Of course you can view them with a browser that still supports HTML Frames. I really love this little detail: the transfer speed of the server is limited to 8 kB/s («dial-up» speed).

Little Printer

November 29th, 2011

BERG, a London-based design studio, has just announced 2 new products: Little Printer and BERG Cloud. Little Printer is a thermal printer with a wireless connection to the Web. Each time you press the button, a neat little personalised package will be printed immediately. You can configure the messages with your smartphone, this is the part where the BERG Cloud will shine. Just watch the video and see how beautiful the graphic design is.
Unfortunately it will only be launched as a “beta” product in 2012. Can’t wait to get one.

One sentence contained within every HTML tag in random order

August 16th, 2011

Jason Kottke suggested today that some should make a random version of Evan Roth‘s classic “One sentence contained within every HTML tag in alphabetical order“. And that’s exactly what Marc Cohen did: One sentence contained within every HTML tag in random order. Reload the page a few times!

</frameset> is an exhibition, a monument and an archive dedicated to the HTML tag <frameset>, setup by some students from the Interface Design department at the Merz Akademie in Stuttgart, Germany.

The HTML tag was introduced in 1996 with version 2.0 of Netscape browser. This tag made it possible to divide a browser window into parts and show several HTML documents at once.

A lot has been written about this most controversial tag in the history of markup languages. Already in the year it was created, usability experts announced that it breaks fundamental rules of hypertext and navigation. It was hated in the end of the 1990’s and neglected in the new millennium.
In March 2011 W3C finally removed frames from the HTML5 standard.

</frameset> is a collection of 5205 framesets from Geocities, 100 “No Frames!” buttons and some experiments by the students like the ones below. Check them out!
