Spectacle, Speculation, Spam. All Things Fall - 3D printed zoetrope by Mat Collishaw. New York’s MoMA Acquires the First Ever (Very Pixelated) Emoji. As of this morning, the Museum of Modern Art in New York has acquired the original 176 emoji for its permanent collection.

New York’s MoMA Acquires the First Ever (Very Pixelated) Emoji

Designed by Shigetaka Kurita for cell phones and pagers in 1999, they aren’t exactly the bouncy expressions that make today’s communication what it is. They’re more typographical, for one thing, and they only have six colors—red, orange, lilac, grass green, royal blue, and black. At just 12 pixels by 12 pixels, the glyphs might seem rudimentary (especially beside beer steins, eggplants, and piles of happy poop), but look closer and you’ll find that they’re remarkably efficient communicators. “They’re so incredibly beautiful and expressive, even though the technology at the time was so limited,” says Paola Antonelli, MoMA’s senior curator in the department of architecture and design.

More than that, early emoji were also a marketing tool.

Generative Computer Art

Winged Insects Made From Old Computer Circuit Boards And Electronics. Our society discards a lot of electronics, as they are rendered obsolete almost every day, but artists like Julie Alice Chappell, based in the UK, are there to pick up the pieces and turn them into beautiful recycled art.

In her case, she turns old computer circuit boards and electronics into beautiful winged insects in a series called “Computer Component Bugs.” “With all their tiny components, complex circuitry and bright metallic colours I cannot help but compare them to the detailed patterns we see when we look at nature up close,” Chappell wrote in an article on permaculture.co.uk.

Realtime 3D is a medium for artistic expression. Games are not the only things you can make with realtime 3D technology.And modification of commercial games is not the only option accessible to artists. Realtime 3D is the most remarkable new creative technology since oil on canvas.It is much too important to remain in the hands of toy makers and propaganda machines.We need to rip the technology out of their greedy claws and put them to shame by producingthe most stunning art to grace this planet so far.
