Friday has arrived.Right on time…

Let’s hit the links!
(Wait, is that a golf joke?)

» Local Eyes Project

“We get on an airplane, with our travel guides and notes of friends. It starts with the discovery of a new land. We hope to meet locals, who would show us something new and unexpected. We are looking for something new, unknown, surprising. A few weeks before our departure, we will send selected locals a disposable camera. Our route will let us pick it up once the film over. It is once returned to France that they will get developed . So finally, our travel photos, it’s the locals who will decide.”
This is a pretty in-depth project. I like it.

» big blue boo

Some great abstract animated gifs from artist Charlie Deck.

» veryman

This is a 3D model in your browser that you can customize (weirdly) and then export as a gif.
Because of course you can.
If you don’t want to bother customizing your own, you can click the “new friend” button and a completely random character will be generated.
This is easily the weirdest thing I have seen this year. (And it’s only April.)

» Kill The Plumber

i.e.: Reverse Mario Brothers. You play as all the enemies of Mario.
Pretty fun!

Bonus Link!

» The Average Faces of Rock

A shaving company used computers to “average” the faces of all the members of several rock groups. The effect is kind of interesting. You can tell which band it is even without being told. I also like this quote:
“We wanted to include KISS with makeup, however the result was just a white and black mess. As for ZZ Top, that image was simpl(y) a mashup of sunglasses and facial hair.”
Doesn’t mean we still wouldn’t want to see it. 🙂
Well done.

Happy Friday everybody.
