Listen and Repeat

 

According to Rachel Knoll “in Listen and Repeat, a modified megaphone uses text to speech capabilities to recite tweets composed with the tag ‘nobody listens’ from the social media website Twitter. The megaphone has been installed on a mountain in Washington state and dictates tweets to an audience of trees.”

“As gamers die in a public video game server of a modified version of  Counter-strike, a popular online first person shooter, the electronic  solenoid valves dispense a small amount of fake blood. The trails left  down the wall create a physical manifestation of virtual kills, bridging  the two realities. The title is inspired by the Telefon Tel Aviv song  of the same name.” Riley Harmon

Axiom and Simulation

By Mark Dorf

Slightly off-topic, although, the reason I posted this is due to the fact that at first sight I thought the line-structures in the first photos were really there in front of the camera and weren’t part of a certain incrustation. Nevertheless I was very glad to find these pictures. Via http://ignant.de/

Graphic Arrays, 2013

“Graphic Arrays is about screen resolutions and aspect ratios and how these evolved over the laste decades. The left board is dedicated to more recent mobile vertical resolution ending at iPad retina. The right board represents the long history of desktop screen pixel sizes starting with the classic VGA (640×480) IBM standard from 1987 till todays common 2560×1600 desktop monsters. It’s also fun to look up the top screen resolutions of Internet users for each year screenresolution.org, sometimes even sorted by country (which it was up to date).” By Aram Bartholl
