The University of Chicago Magazine: Features Jason Salavon churns raw data through computer programs to make distinctive art. By Brooke E. O’Neill, AM’04 Photography by Dan Dry Albuquerque: Machine Wilderness Thank you to everyone who made ISEA2012 an amazing success! "'Machine Wilderness'...conveyed a consciousness of consequence, a sense that new technologies can yield earth-changing results, that artistic vision can drive such technologies to such results, and that usefulness, and especially useful transformation, is a form of beauty." - Peter Frank, Huffington Post In September, 2012, the worlds of art, science and technology came together in Albuquerque, New Mexico for a six day, international conference, which kicked off a season-long exhibition and series of public programs around the region. ISEA2012 Albuquerque: Machine Wilderness was the 18th International Symposium on Electronic Art.
Takeshi Murata Made An Animated Sculpture That Melts Into Itself This past weekend, digital-art impresario Takeshi Murata premiered new work at gallery Ratio 3's space at the Frieze art fair. The artist is known for distorting and manipulating videos into chaotic-yet-stunning pieces of colorful geometry, and while his new work, Melter 3-D, is short on color, it is undoubtedly a work of incredible form—especially as it never maintains a consistent one, despite being physical. Melter 3-D is by definition a zoetrope, a device that produce the illusion of motion from a rapid succession of static pictures, but it's tangible. In other words, the installation is a sculptural animation. Zim and Zou Official poster of the SXSW Film Festival 2014 (Austin, Texas). In collaboration with Gravillis. Austin's symbols : - Paramount Theater - Food Trailer Parks - South Congress Bridge bats (- The Texas Capitol) "Our goal was to create a poster that did not feel like it could be easily digitally reproduced.

They focus on specific events, or clarifying the user's interaction by animation.
Is Hip-Hop Making You Stupid? The Hip Hop Word Count Breaks It Down What can rap lyrics teach us about our culture? Tahir Hemphill, a lifelong hip-hop enthusiast, has spent the past four years compiling an “ethnographic database” of hip-hop lyrics to answer that question. Comprising more than 40,000 songs spanning from 1979 to present day, Hemphill’s exhaustive archive makes up the project Hip-Hop Word Count, a searchable rap resource that analyzes lyrics and assigns various metadata to them, such as time, geographic location, word count, syllable count, and readability. By indexing every metaphor, simile, cultural reference, meme and socio-political idea, the Hip-Hop Word Count charts a geography of language and aims to chronicle the migration of ideas throughout rap’s history. It’s a resource that can help answer probing socio-economic questions like, “How does the rise in slang terms for money used in hip-hop lyrics correlate to U.S. poverty levels?” Tell us about the Hip-Hop Word Count.
Scientists reconstruct speech through soundproof glass by watching a bag of potato chips Your bag of potato chips can hear what you're saying. Now, researchers from MIT are trying to figure out a way to make that bag of chips tell them everything that you said — and apparently they have a method that works. By pointing a video camera at the bag while audio is playing or someone is speaking, researchers can detect tiny vibrations in it that are caused by the sound. When later playing back that recording, MIT says that it has figured out a way to read those vibrations and translate them back into music, speech, or seemingly any other sound.
Logo Design Process and Walkthrough for BioThemes This post was originally published in 2011 The tips and techniques explained may be outdated. It must be well over a year since I created the BioThemes logo, but the BioThemes website has finally launched with a bang so I thought I’d pull out my logo design to share my design process with you guys and girls. The BioThemes logo was pretty different to the majority of logos I’ve worked on in the past, which made it a super interesting project.
