Mindbogglingly awesome ideas for art projects
- Erotic Fractals - Chunks of photos of female body parts laid out in complex geometric patterns, (quite obviously) condemning the objectification of women while alluding to the great works of surrealism, op art.
- The above rendered as a sculpture.
- The above rendered as a sculpture but with some references to toys, robots and grocery store products added, ala Jeff Koons, via Warhol.
- The above scaled so as to achieve earthworks scale.
- The above wrapped in canvas.
- Naked children climbing added to the above, ala Led Zeppelin.
- Top down pictures taken of above, ala Google Maps, incorporated via hack-art into said website when you search for "God" or other all-encompassing unlimited art-capable word or words.
- Use of open APIs to add touching and/or disturbing labels to bits of above and/or incorporate data from other websites.
- Video installation demonstrating use of above. Should be given a clever name using words like "Composted" or "Recycled" or "Placenta."
- Dance/musical to be performed under projection of above.
- Cocking of audience eyebrows to be directed towards scary homeless guy masturbating to public performance of above
- as he rants.
Photoshop is bad for you
I got a chance to go out with a friend and take some pictures with her rockin' old school Hasselblad a couple of months ago. I'm going to get some of these printed fairly large (the negatives are 2" x 2"! - suggestions for which ones to print are welcome...), but for now I've uploaded some scans to a new flickr set.
iPod mini pocket
I finally got around to making a protective leather case for my iPod mini. After the fiasco of getting it repaired the first time I want to treat this thing like a baby. It's got a belt loop, velcro closure on the bottom and Access Holes™.
I discovered a really fun new way to use Freehand last night: Create a warping image hose that uses a blended object as a source and you can "paint" with vectors. The result I got looks a lot like fingerpainting, except it's completely scalable. Clicking on these will enlarge them in a new window.
Finally got the poster up I created using one of the best web apps in the world: The Rasterbator, which converts most common web image formats into big pdf files full of dots, which can be printed on standard printers and assembled into posters.
Here's my wall:
