*Not really Toby, I love you forever, you know that.
A framed high-definition screen with integrated computer that hangs on your wall and brings art from the Internet into your home.
I’m excited to announce that I’m joining Electric Objects as Co-founder and Director of Product, Software. It’s a collision of a lot of things I’ve been intrigued by lately: creating internet art, building things with my hands, figuring out hardware. I’m excited to build something that’s worthy of a place in people’s homes.
It’s available for pre-order on Kickstarter now, check it out!
Very Antitrust. That’s a good thing.
Aaron Grimes has been working on a pretty sweet project lately.
From the description.
"I had the opportunity to travel to Tokyo in November and I wanted to capture the busy and hectic feel of the city. I’ve been working on an effect in Photoshop that simulates exposure times that are longer than possible while filming and this was the perfect showcase for the effect.
Using Photoshop, I simulated each frame to have essentially 1 second of exposure time, a significant jump from the 1/50th original shutter speed. This would be an impossibility to do “in camera”.”
Amazon Art just went live and blech. I just don’t think people are going to spend this kind of money online. Maybe once for the novelty, but how do you control quality, what about color matching from the site to the print? I understand that not all of the available works are going for the price of a Chuck Close print, but even the lesser priced pieces I would be wary about.
Also, aesthetically speaking, there is no tangible line of thought or program going. It’s actually unattractive to look at, not one thing makes me want to go through and actually look at the offerings. They announced they were going to do this earlier this year, if I remember correctly, and this is what they were able to put together? I know that Amazon isn’t the most glamorous place to shop for, well anything, but if you’re trying to go high end gallery-esque a little thought into the presentation would have made me feel a bit more valued as a consumer of presumably good taste.
