Created by Boris Meister at ECAL, Above the Cloud is an atlas about social networks archeology, death and digital marks left in distress on the internet. Boris attempts to present the complex subject and, above all, explain it by creating an object – book, both in its structure, images and layout.
“Words of a Middle Man” is a project by Christoph Steinlehner, Lino Teuteberg and Jeremias Volker at the Univerity of Applied Sciences in Potsdam. The project includes a wireless router which analyses the communication on its own network and reinterprets it on a computer display into a “natural” language.
Provocations within The Critical Engineering Manifesto (2011) state that reliance on specific technologies are “both a challenge and a threat” and that “the exploit is the most desirable form of exposure”. Julian Oliver is one of the authors of this manifesto and on reviewing his body of work, one can see that the mandate is […]
Solyaris by Beat Raess is an “exploration into organic information design to visualise movies, actors, directors and their relationship”. The application for iPad made in Cinder allows you to search the entire Open Movie Database (TMDb) collection for movies, actors or directors. Expand nodes to gather information about their connections. Learn about the cast and filmography.
Whilst we are pretty much all aware of the implications of 3-D printing as a process of making any arbitrary object at the push of a button, it is exactly what living organisms have been up to since the invention of multicellular life. Designers at IDEO have teamed up with scientists at the Lim Lab at the University of California, San […]
Visual programming languages, languages that create programs by the manipulation of graphical elements, as opposed to specifying lines of text, have seen an increased popularity in recent years both in audio and video synthesis. Some of the more well-known environments, ones that are regularly used for projects that are featured on CAN, include VVVV (real-time […]
Grey Walter’s robotic tortoises ELSIE Usman Haque has, on several occasions, made the observation that there is an important difference between interactivity and responsiveness (see for example -pdf). A responsive system is a fundamentally linear set of relations, a kind of reaction where the same thing happens every time a given action is performed. A […]
As you might have already noticed CAN has a new logo and with this the new css. It’s been long since we started thinking about it and it’s an absolute pleasure to see it all finally out there. None of this could have been possible without Just Be Nice, especially Stas Khrustalev who put immense […]
Eva Schindling (Austria) creates hardware and software solutions in the interdisciplinary zone between art, science, technology and design. This project called “Circuit Explorations” is one of her last projects which studies in complex and emerging electronic circuits. “Circuit Explorations” addresses the questions if any system has the potential to show emergent behavior as long as […]
Created by onyro, toneglue is a musical mapping web application to visually display relationships, by similarity of music artists. Navigate endless networks of relating artists by first searching for a single artists and expanding relationships. The data is pulled from Amazon and LastFM so some artists will include additional information such as about and releases. […]
Created byÂ Kunal Anand,Â Looks Delicious is a collection of visualizations for different Delicious users displaying their tagging behaviour. The looks del.icio.us project is my first attempt to combine graphics design with programming. The concept is to see how users develop and sustain their tagging methodologies on del.icio.us. Looks Del.icio.us was created inÂ python with a customÂ layout engine […]
Jasuto is an iPhone music app (and a VST Plugin) that can rightly claim to be the first modular synthesizer on the platform. Jasuto lets you build your own patches or synths similar to how you would in Reaktor or SynthEdit, albiet in a much more simplified environment. Modules are represented on screen as circular […]
