    “To create this strata-cut animation, I planed down a block of wood one layer at a time, photographing it at each pass. The painstaking process revealed a hidden life and motion in the seemingly static grain of the wood, even as the wood itself was reduced to a mound of sawdust.”

  • Announcing “#PRISOM”, A Synthetic Reality Surveillance Game [#geekgirl]

    #PRISOM,  A Synthetic Reality Surveillance Game

    #PRISOM, A Synthetic Reality Surveillance Game

    So we (meaning Mez Breeze Design) can finally let the (Schrödinger’s?) cat out of the very tightly zipped bag: we’re *extremely* excited to officially announce our latest co-production with Dreaming Methods: “#PRISOM“. #PRISOM is a Synthetic Reality Game where a player is set loose in a Glass City under infinite surveillance. Will you be brave enough to enter?

    The project is making its début at (and is funded by) the “MARart4 Transreal Topologies Exhibition” as part of #ISMAR2013, the International Symposium on Mixed and Augmented Reality in conjunction with SA Uni’s Wearable Computer Lab. So if you’re keen to don a HMD (Head-Mounted Display) and throw yourself into #PRISOM, head to the Adelaide City East Campus of the University of South Australia on October 1-4th.

  • The Hubble Ultra Deep Field in 3D [#geekgirl]

    “…an animation that was rendered using the measured redshift of all 10,000 galaxies in the Hubble Ultra Deep Field image.”

  • Oscillate by Daniel Sierra [#geekgirl]

    If you just happened to cross an assortment of credit visuals from the British TV Sci-fi series Dr Who with Joy Division’s “Unknown Pleasures” album cover (see above), you’d probably get something a trifle-like-this:

  • #Tetris Stop Motion Chalk Art [#geekgirl]

  • #Company Releases #Feature #Film Using #Vine [#geekgirl]

    Press Still for IAD

    Yep, you read that correctly: the film distribution company Oscilloscope is using Vine [the 6-second-per-snippet Video platform] to broadcast a feature film entitled “It’s A Disaster”. The film won’t be “vined” in its entirety, but will [apparently] convey the film’s essence reasonable well. Clips from the rampant marketing stunt innovative event will also be made accessible through the company’s Twitter account.


    Update: The film’s title apparently proved prophetic in more ways than one – @OscopeLabs had to pull the plug on live-tweeting each Vine episode link due to unfortunate follower unrest…
