Distractions are links I’ve found interesting this week and which might be interesting/useful to others:
- Dead Drops – let’s do one at Culture Lab? (get in touch with me if you wanna do one)
- Without Thought: objects that are used naturally and spontaneously (related to concept of Affordance in this week’s Doing lecture)
- Directory of Open Source and Free Software – note the acknowledgement that Open Source ≠ Free
- Slitscan Photography – might play with this as part of current Doing project
- More Slitscan on makemagazine.com
- Arduino High Speed Photo Trigger and Internet Meter – 2 nice Arduino based projects, one powering an off-camera flash and another using an Ethernet Shield
- Spy Camera T-Shirt – wearable computing and defo’ an IWOOT!
- Processing Compendium 2004-2010 – a collection of work and record of process by Casey Reas, co-founder of Processing, presented and created entirely in Processing
- Up-cycling a discarded chair – in the spirit of this week’s Doing lecture about the DIY. I’m so making myself one of these!
- Nemore by fishing for compliments – Great example of Interactive Art. I’d love to see this for real.
- The Commuter – a short film made entirely with a Nokia N8
- The Story of Stop Motion Film – told with Stop Motion. Brilliant little bit of film.
- Hardware Hacking, Recycling, Up-cycling, Circuit Bending – some interesting examples. I like L.S.D. (the Light to Sound Device).
- Collaborative Photography – strobing a city!
- Nuit Blanche – a rather beautiful B&W short film and an interesting behind the scenes video of how it was created
- Written Images – a project in contemporary generative print design and art.
- oops – A winner of the 2010 Vimeo Awards using only footage from dropped cameras.
