The 1619 Project

The 1619 Project

“The 1619 Project is a major initiative from The New York Times observing the 400th anniversary of the beginning of American slavery. It aims to reframe the country’s history, understanding 1619 as our true founding, and placing the consequences of slavery and the contributions of black Americans at the very center of the story we tell ourselves about who we are.”

This is an important series of essays which discuss the historical “long tail” of racism in American society, politics, policy, etc.. Really well presented also.

Touch This Art: The Nautilus

“The Nautilus is a constellation of 95 interactive poles that are activated by touch. Passersby are invited to engage with the immersive space or observe others’ interactions from its central enclosure.”

Located in NYC’s Seaport District

MORPH: Robotic Sculpture

MORPH: Robotic Sculpture

“MORPH is a modular and kinetic interactive installation that reaches beyond two-dimensional pixels and embodies three-dimensional information.”

An intereting little piece of interactive art. A ton of tech went into this. Really impressive.

One of many such interesting creations from Mindbuffer.

Yael Kirav: Conductive Origami

Yael Kirav: Conductive Origami

“A series of lighting fixtures that are produced using 3D printing directly onto textiles. Stiff printing on canvas allows creating complex fixtures. When the printed material conducts electricity, the tangent points created by the wisdom of origami folding, produce a new opportunity – lighting the fixture by shrinking and stretching the structure.”

Yael Akirav is an Industrial Designer based in Jerusalem.

Hex Blaster

Hex Blaster

It’s breakout, but with bouncing and sequences and points and… I really find it addictive.

Not a mobile game, but probably should be. Super fun!

This is the work of a Kobe-based art student named “Harukiru“.

It’s really quite something. He completely transforms these packages into intricate, beautiful, often whimsical sculptures.

Somewhat making the rounds. Excellent work.

An odd little retro-90s experience in your browser.

It presents a mid-90s computer desktop interface and streams audio and videos from that era with a tv scan-line filter on it.
