For the last couple of years Andrew Benson has been producing work that borders GIF animation and glitch aesthetic. Below is a short compilation of recent experiments he’s made to work out animation ideas or generative effects rototypes in Maya.
Untitled No. 1 is a video collage using only images collected from the previous 24 hour news cycle. The entire video was computationally generated using corpus based artistic stylization developed by Parag K. Mital as part of his ongoing research.
Toronto’s Egyptrixx (David Psutka) returns with his second album “A/B til Infinity” in the form of a multi-media collaboration with Berlin-based visual artist A N F – Andreas Nicolas Fischer.
Remote Install is an installation by Julian Oliver that remotely installs itself over the network and presents its own installation process as an artefact in itself.
Created by Moritz Greiner-Petter, TICK (TIC) tries to embed the notion of uselessness, extravagance and non-intentionality in programmed environments. Tick is an AppleScript that runs in the background to augment the movement of your mouse cursor with neurotic loops from time to time. Once started it runs invisibly in the background, without a dock icon. The parasite application […]
Evan Bech uses screen capture to create three-dimensional moving sculptures on the desktop. As he repositions windows on the desktop, the feedback of the image keeps regenerating and creating a sense of depth in the y axis direction. The trick is the same as when mirror to mirror can create an endless repetition of images. […]
Created by Ben Cowell-Thomas, Lightplot is a robotic 3D light painting system. Animation is exported from 3DS Max, and imported into the Lightplot software which then drives a robotic arm to draw the models in the air. The software also controls a DSLR camera to take long exposure photographs of each frame of animation.
Couple of months ago Büro Destruct got a call from ‘edding’ – famous for their permanent markers – and they wanted BD to design a font for them based on the edding 850, their boldest marker. For those that have used the marker know the limitations and also the freedom and scale that comes with using […]

Earlier today, I got an email from Rob about the latest video he made, that was […]

Inspired by the recent post on Skytopia, Tom Beddard created a 3D Mandelbulb Ray Tracer as a Quarz Composer and Pixel Bender plugin that will allow you to generate very similar 3D Mandelbrot fractals. Unlike many other 3D fractals the Mandelbulb continues to reveal finer details the closer you look. This implementation was written as a Pixel Bender […]
Inspired by Helvetireader (user script to change to look of google reader), Ad Taylor has created a similar script to change the look of Google Calendar. Instead of dated, quite unattractive existing look you can replace it with Helvetica font inspired slick, clean and bold aesthetic. To run this script you will need Firefox with […]
