Tulum, Mexico 2016

Back in NY, just returned from an fantastic short break in Mexico with Steph. We stayed at the gorgeous Casa Malca in Tulum for 4-days. So beautiful and peaceful. Wish we could’ve stayed longer.

One made beats and played them with Ableton Live and a MIDI keyboard. The other jammed live with a chromatic harmonica & pedal FX. It was like deep space Vangelis. Perfect for the setting. Perfect for the vibe.

Needed the break after putting a shift in at work (see last few posts) but feeling recharged and inspired. Don’t spend your money on stuff. Spend it on experiences and memories.

A Study of Time

‘A Study Of Time’ by rAndom International 2011 from rAndom International on Vimeo.

A gorgeous installation that uses light, it’s presence and it’s absence, as a medium for the representation of time.

A vividly illuminated autonomous algorithm magically reveals the time of the day, re-imagining the principle of telling time from falling shadows as a contemporary light installation.

You’ve probably already seen this. But just in case.

Google teamed up with 17 art museums to create a unique collection of a thousand artworks online in extraordinary detail, using a combination of Streetview technology and a special gigapixel camera. Watch the Behind The Scenes video for more detail.

Great work by Karsten Schmidt and the community.

toxiclibs is an independent, open source library collection for computational design tasks with Java & Processing (and soon other languages). After over 3.5 years of continuous development & refactoring, the collection consists of >25k lines of code, 270+ classes bundled into 8 libraries. The classes are purposefully kept fairly generic in order to maximize re-use in different contexts ranging from generative visuals, data visualization to architecture digital fabrication, use as teaching tool in these fields and more…

Digital installations situated in Google Earth

These digital sculptures by artist Peter Root were all created in Google Sketchup. Some of the stills look a bit more striking than the videos themselves. But it’s a really interesting idea, and something that could easily became a permanent layer in Google Earth – easily allowing artists to create and show work in a digital space.
