Untitled Painting

“In his one piece domain Untitled Painting (www.untitledpainting.com), Thomas Traum has embedded searchable satellite imagery from Google as the substrate for abstraction and for painting on top of, you can click away. He says it is in part inspired by the late 1980’s overpainted photographs of Gerhard Richter, which is more or less apparent, yet where Richter’s tourist photo style backdrop’s are fixed, Traums locations are fluid.”

Don’t watch if you dislike

I just stumbled upon wendyvainity’s Youtube channel.
Wendy is an australian woman who describe herself as a “cat lover/ try hard gardener/ port adelaide power supporter/ freeware addict”. She posts some crazy, hypnotizing 3d video experiments in which a virtual avatar of herself dances, sings and acts.
Her freedom of expression, irony and sense of identity are awesome and refreshing. If this is amateur culture, we totally dig it.

I’m Here

I’m Here” is a robot love story celebrating a life enriched by creativity. The movie is set in contemporary L.A., where life moves at a seemingly regular pace with the exception of a certain amount of robot residents who love among the population.

The short film is directed by Spike Jonze and sponsored by Absolut Vodka. Watch it here.

Over Data

Another great video by Marco Cadioli (aka Marco Manray):

“How will be Gloogle Earth without Earth?
Over Data is a machinima shot in Google Earth, but the images of the Earth are extinguished, annulled in a white neutral surface. Data, information and icons are the only ones that design, define and create the new landscape.”
