DataBot Mouse


DataBot Mouse is very interesting experiment by Jan Barth and Roman Grasy:

The mouse is able to communicate three different properties of data. It can show you the weight of files and folders, by braking with different force, according to the file-size. Or you can set a custom weight for files, just like the color marking function in MacOSX. So you can find important files more easily.
The third property, the mouse can show you, is the activity of files and folders. By ‘breathing’ with different intervals, it shows how much a file was opened or how busy a folder has been recently.

Ellero Dual Death and Visual Ecosystem

Ellero Dual Death and Visual Ecosystem (Duplice morte Ellero ed ecosistema visivo) is a project by Riccardo Arena:

“Project B – “Ellero Dual Death and Visive Ecosystem “ (DM) has been developed through a narrative scheme built on the reorganization of a series of investigations which, through visual and textual anatomy, reflect on the concepts of identity, individuation and equality at a historical and symbolic level. The logic of the narrative is structured through an “archive paradigm”, within which, studies, journals, notes and views are rearranged in a kaleidoscopic game of substitution and rearrangement of parts.
The project foresees the making of a video 30/40 minutes long associated with a series of art works made with different techniques and a book that will state the stages of the development of the project.”

Content is Queen

Content is queen 2

Content is Queen is a generative video painting by Sergio Albiac:

“At the same time, is a paradoxical dialogue and strange marriage between the banal and utterly majestic: to create the series, the most popular (in a truly democratic sense) internet videos of a given moment are used as the input of a generative process that ‘paints’ with action the image of a contemporary Queen.”
