Ahhh February…

This is the second last Friday in it! Then we topple towards Spring. Yay.

And now: some links!

Polygon Shredder

Polygon Shredder

“The polygon shredder that takes many cubes and turns them into confetti”

A crazy web installation that I find mesmerizing. A huge amount of computing power goes into producing this. You can move around it as well. Great work.

Drawings365

“After an inspiring conversation with my wife, I decided to join her photo 365 project with my own drawing 365 project. 1 Drawing per day for 365 days.”

This would be artist Curtis Wiklund’s daily drawings of whatever happened on each day. The sub-gallery of just him and his wife is touching. There is a coffee table book underway. Well done.

Ocean Wave Simulation

[self explanatory]

Really beautiful. I love that this quality of computer simulation is available right in a simple web browser.

Leo’s Red Carpet Rampage

Leo DiCaprio is being blocked from receiving awards, and it’s up to you to help him.

“Collect as many Emmy’s and Golden Globes as you can along the way. but beware of pushy photographers and watch out for Lady Gaga… and icebergs”

(Really that last bit are words to live by no matter who you are.) 😉

Timely and crazy.

Bonus Link!

BeepBox

“BeepBox is an online tool for sketching and sharing chiptune melodies.”

Their Twitter feed features individual tracks that people have composed. Pretty great.

Some little bits and pieces this week:
“This is Strunk & White, rewritten using a predictive text generator by Jamie Brew.”

Hilarious, but also sometimes indistinguishable from the original. Sent along by Emma T.

And hey who knew Silence of the Lambs was already 25 years old? (I feel old again.) A great read from Rolling Stone.

See you in seven days!
