Original Creators: Visionary Computer Animator John Whitney Sr Way before After Effects, before the annual Siggraph conference, before Pixar even, computer animation was around in its infant form. There were no feature films rendered entirely on a computer, no animated deconstructions of historic artworks. But there was someone who made all this possible and that man was John Whitney Sr. If you jumped in a time machine and kidnapped him from history to help you with a homework assignment and never returned him, the fate of computer animation may well go the way of the McFly clan in that disappearing photo from Back to the Future. Anyway, enough with the time-travel film metaphors. But perhaps his most famous and recognized work was his collaboration with Saul Bass on the title sequence for Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo in 1958. Mechanical Analogue Computers John Whitney Sr. and his brother James Catalog (1961) This was a demo reel which showcased the visual effects Whitney was able to create with his analogue machinery.

vvvv - a multipurpose toolkit | vvvv Using strobe light to make water drops fall in slow motion We can make water droplets appear to fall in slow motion by pumping them out of a tube using a pump that pushes the droplets out at regular intervals. Many pumps operate at 60 Hz because AC power in the United States oscillates at 60 Hz. If we force droplets out of a tube at 60 Hz and illuminate the droplets with a 60 Hz strobe light, the droplets will appear to be essentially motionless. If you want to make one of these devices, here's what you need. A reciprocating pump. I used a Gorman-Rupp 14825-690 oscillating pump I picked up on eBay. (9.8 m/s^2)*(1s/60)^2 = 0.27 cm so each pair of droplets will be separated by an additional 1/4 centimeter compared to the pair above it. It is possible to custom-tune the frequency of a low voltage pump to match the frame rate of either a strobe or a high-speed digital camera.

Records [iPhone, Sound]: Japanese independent record label | only on the iPhone Records is a Japanese independent record label brought to you by Delaware that only exists on iPhone/iPodTouch. Distributed via the AppStore, featuring now 6 apps (compilations), Re<ords apps are a new spin on distributing music. Instead of going via iTunes, Re<ords acknowledge opportunity to add value to music in the form of interactive experience or what I like to refer to as “designer apps” or collectables. Each app is individually designed and includes a spinning vinyl with custom designed label. Coming soon is also the zar+Mo Label, offering classical music, early jazz and other traditional sounds. Delaware is an art collective from Japan. Platform: iPhone Version: / Cost: $1.99 – $3.99 Developer: Delaware

The Evil Eye - Optical audio record by Indianen The Evil Eye project is the result of a residency by Belgium collective Indianen at the Frans Masereel Center, a center for printmaking in Kasterlee. The project investigates how printmaking could produce another kind of information, transforming material into an object with a new meaning. When you put “optical audio record” on the record player it passes the handheld electronic “eye” the team has built: a simple device with an LED and a light sensor. The rotating patterns create modulating light that is translated into an electric signal by the eye. This signal is fed into a guitar amplifier and comes out as the exact sound that is embedded in the prints. The app that generates the patters was made with Cocoa / Objective-C. The track editing view superimposes waves on top of each other and allows for adding tones, moving them around and changing their pitch and waveforms (square wave, sine, sawtooth, etc…).

Bootleg : not another surf movie Des films de surf il y en a beaucoup. Quand un arrive à faire se rencontrer créativité artistique et qualité de glisse on ne peut que le signaler. C’est le cas de Bootleg, film né de la rencontre entre l’icône Joel Tudor et le réalisateur Georges Trimm. Capture d’écran du film “The Bootleg” Not another surf movie Joel Tudor est intemporel. Capture d’écran du film “Bootleg” Le film a été montré en avant première à Laguna Beach, non loin de Los Angeles, en septembre dernier. Bootleg : une esthétique du contre-pied Mais ne nous limitons pas à l’apparition d’une des stars de la surf culture alternative. Un assemblage éparse de séquences parfois mal dégrossies. Le charme de l’ancien Le charme de l’ancien. Antimoderne. Je veux recevoir plus de news !

When we talk about art, aesthetics is not far. When we talk about computer programs, algorithmics cannot be avoided. [Fr] Pour la toute première fois en France, nous avons l’honneur et l’immense plaisir d’inviter Frieder Nake qui donnera une conférence sur l’art algorithmique. Cette conférence inédite et rare sera suivie par deux jours d’ateliers avec Frieder Nake et Mark Webster dans lesquels les participants travailleront sur la retranscription d’œuvres des années 60 et 70 à l’aide de Processing. [En] For the very first time in France we have the honor and immense pleasure of inviting Frieder Nake to give a lecture on algorithmic art. This rare and unique lecture will be followed by two days of workshops in which Frieder Nake and Mark Webster will lead a small group of participants. Frieder Nake working in 1966.
