at second glance

at second glance

Most persistence of vision projects I have seen involve moving a strip of leds fast enough that our eye perceives it to be an image. Make magazine has covered many projects of this type.

Jens Wunderling, a student of the Digital Media Class at UDK Berlin, has created at second glance, an alternative approach to POV. Instead of moving the LEDs, Wunderling has them fixed in position, but plays with saccades (our eyes never look straight, but always make fast tiny movement around an area).

So if you happen to glance past the work, you may notice something unusual. On second glance, if you shake your head, you will be able to clearly see the symbol. Created as a “guerilla messaging device, made to place hidden critical messages within the abundant medial environment in the city”.

Developed using Arduino and Processing, the source code of which is available on his site, and 32 ultrabright LEDs.

John Cage performs Water Walk

cage.jpg John Cage performing Water Walk on TV game show I've got a secret in 1960, while being set up as something of a freakshow the presenter still goes to great lengths to convince the audience that Cage is 'serious'. Cage handles the occasion with a light touch and a good sense of humour, when the presenter warns Cage that while the audience are nice people ... some of them are going to laugh, is that alright he replies with a winning smile of course I consider laughter preferable to tears.

Call for submissions: Gameplay: Video Games in Contemporary Art Practice

The word gameplay refers to the creative, resistant, or artful manipulation of video games by users. It can be said that "gameplay" relates not only to the strategic, but also emotional framework of play, as it is a unique reflection the individual's meaningful bond to the game itself. According to Sid Meier, a world-renowned designer, a game is a "series of interesting choices." If art can also be considered a "series of interesting choices," what happens when the realms of art and video game intersect?
