Parametric 3D optical illusion At beginning of this post, you can see some interesting artistic works. The first famous project named the 3D face of Mae West was the new 3D version from Dali’s painting face of Mae West. And the two 3d painted rooms from Felice Varini were created through projection and light. They first project the 2d image on the many surfaces and then paint the guideline through the shadows of the projecting. In these kind of projects the artist creak interesting 3d optical illusions to confuse the border in between 2d and 3d.

Relaying the most contagious acts of resistance Where Do We Migrate To? Curated by Niels Van Tomme, Director of Arts and Media at Provisions Learning Project in Washington, DC and organized with the Center for Art, Design and Visual Culture in Baltimore, Where Do We Migrate To? explores contemporary issues of migration as well as experiences of displacement and exile. Situating the contemporary individual in a world of advanced globalization, the artworks address how a multiplicity of migratory encounters demand an increasingly complex understanding of the human condition. As such, the exhibition allows multiple perspectives about its subject matter to unfold simultaneously, opening up a range of political, psychological, poetic, and pragmatic manifestations of the contemporary migrant experience.

How to choose the right UX metrics for your product When designing for the web, you can analyze usage data for your product and compare different interfaces in A/B tests. This is sometimes called “data-driven design”, but I prefer to think of it as data-informed design — the designer is still driving, not the data. To make this work in practice it’s important to use the right metrics. Basic traffic metrics (like overall page views or number of unique users) are easy to track and give a good baseline on how your site is doing, but they are often not very useful for evaluating the impact of UX changes. This is because they are very general, and usually don’t relate directly to either the quality of the user experience or the goals of your project — it’s hard to make them actionable.
