Browser Pong

According to Wikipedia... Pong (marketed as PONG) is one of the earliest arcade video games, and is a tennis sports game featuring simple two-dimensional graphics. The aim is to defeat an opponent—either computer-controlled or a second player—by earning a higher score. The game was originally manufactured by Atari Incorporated (Atari), who released it in 1972.

Transparent Seven Inch

Transparent Seven Inch by Matthew Gambler

Transparent Seven Inch by Matthew Gambler from his ANY COLOR YOU LIKE project:

I once taught a color photography class where I had one particular student who would not participate in any class discussions. However, I knew from other classes that he was an excellent student. Later I discovered he was colorblind. Talking about color had no meaning for him.

[ Monolit ]

[ There where time overcomes to escape the space, structures are launched against deep surfaces. Emptiness turns frozen when crossing a abyss weaved of networks. Chance permutes to be born in each particle that survives the collision with the immutability. When exceeding the mass, silence is projected over its own absence. Only abstraction is able to bring us back to basic geometry complexity ]

[ Monolit ] by Sonom an experimental group based in Barcelona who research and explore light and sound as universal communication media and as base for integration of other paradigms.

Pavement Loop

The Art of Alex Varanese - Pavement Loop

"Paved surfaces form the arteries of the modern world, tempering our casual sense of day-to-day freedom with a kind of linear determinism that gently surrounds our innate proclivity for exploration with a fixed template of an explicitly geometric nature.

But as is so often the case, the oppression of these constraints can force the emergence a new creative perspective for those willing to seek it out."

This looks interesting... from Christopher Nolan, director of the Dark Knight:

Described as being "about the world of dreams and the interior of the human mind. It tells the story of Cobb, an agent who has a team of people who have access to a technology that allows them to enter people's minds through their dreams".

"The brainchild of longtime friends Colin Foord and Jared McKay, MORPHOLOGIC concocts installations that combine sound and light to transform the minute creatures that inhabit our coral reefs into strange, abstract works of surreal art. In the process, they bridge the gap that has long divided science and art. But don't let appearances fool you; their work also captures a world that speaks volumes about the social interactions in the concrete spaces we create far above the ocean's surface."

Art from Pushing Buttons and Turning Dials

"When it comes to making art by pushing buttons and turning dials, there ought to be a general rule of thumb that says push every button, turn every dial. If it's there - turn it."
