The Secret to a Video-Game Phenomenon

[...] “Such incomparable success is unexpected. Minecraft embodies few of the video-game fashions that were current when it appeared. Coded in Java, a general-­purpose programming language that emphasizes speed and lightness over the grand capabilities of more powerful tools, it features pixelated scenery that has nothing in common with the lifelike, polygon-stuffed characters and objects furnishing the blockbuster video games of the day. There is a certain Lego-like charm and blunt handsomeness to the rectangular clouds that throw shadows on the game’s pea-green hills and the dumpy sheep that roam them. But in an industry traditionally obsessed with chasing realism and authenticity, its kindergarten aesthetic at first appears anachronistic.” From The Secret to a Video-Game Phenomenon by Simon Parkin, Technology Review.

Sensate Journal For Experiments In Critical Media Practice

Sensate Journal For Experiments In Critical Media Practice :: Call For Submissions - Deadline: September 30, 2012.

Sensate is a new online interdisciplinary journal publishing works of critical media practice. It is currently accepting submissions from academics, scientists and artists interested in working on collaborative projects which cross the boundaries between research and making.

“I think of art, at its most significant, as a DEW line, a Distant Early Warning system that can always be relied on to tell the old culture what is beginning to happen to it.” –Marshall McLuhan

Carbon 13 presents newly commissioned work by eight international artists who have focused the lens of their creativity to interrogate the reality of climate change. These new and daring works demonstrate that one salient image can speak louder than volumes of scientific data and capture the public’s imagination with an immediate and resonate voice.

Hz Journal: The Book of Stamps: Travel Guide for a Sonic Landscaping from Cities to Urban Cultures

[Fig. 6. A single page of the Book of Stamps. It acts as a score that sends instruction to computer application that generates a soundscape based on the type and number of symbols that were stamped onto the page.] The Book of Stamps: Travel Guide for a Sonic Landscaping from Cities to Urban Cultures by Art Clay:

Messages for our Future

Messages for our Future - Collaborative Digital Art: Japanese Tsunami:

It’s been year since a tsunami devastated the northeast coast of Japan. And to honor those who are bravely rebuilding their communities, Jason Nelson recently collaborated with a group of students and residents from Tohoku, Japan to create an interactive artwork. Armed with donated cameras, they took hundreds of photos of both the disaster’s aftermath and, more importantly, their hopeful recovery. They then responded to these visions with poetic message. Nelson then compiled these photographs and texts and using an infinitely recombining/ zooming engine, created an interactive mosaic digital artwork.
