Ronai David, Damien Mortini and Aurelien Gantier put together Christmas Experiments, a digital advent calendar that reveals a new web-based treat every day throughout December. Each one is the product of a different developer.

My favourite is Finding Home by Michael Anthony, which features a little ball of light that travels into amazing landscapes that change colours and time, going through mountains and space and then into a galaxy, it is pretty awesome!

Kirsten Lepore

Sorry, I had a mental week and have been extremely busy with an art opening in London where I was exhibiting, as well as handing in my final MA paper. But I’m back.

I discovered this gold girl. She loves stop motion and the videos she makes are wonderful. It’s been a long time since I’ve seen something with such a simple idea but so effective. Her name is Kirsten Lepore and she makes mini stop motion videos which I love.
This girl is Something. With a capital S. Check her out. Below are two of her films, one called Bottle and the other called Sweet Dreams. Isn´t she amazing?

Van Gogh is alive

I think this is a great tool for kids to learn about art.

Petros Vrellis, who is a greek artist and electrical engineer, has created an interesting interactive animation of Vincent van Gogh’s painting “The Starry Night”.
The visualization sends the paint daubs of the Saint-Rémy night sky into swirling patterns of motion. A touch interface allows viewers to alter the image, changing both the flow and the sound. When not touched, the visualization will return to its natural state.

Settings for the velocity and music composition, both designed to resonate with Van Gogh’s original artwork.

It is absolutely beautiful, a new piece of art using technology.
