A nice piece by Lena Groeger on how we make use of visual information in maps, graphics and other visualizations concentrating on the small end of the scale. Pre-attentive visual processing and more. Recommended!
A wonderful little video showing the a collaboration of the arts and tech. No computer animation is used - just drones building on the expertise in distributed autonomous drones from ETH Zurich, choreography from Cirque du Soleil, and Verity Studios.
It's hard not to laugh when looking at photos of Markus Moestue riding along on his self-built dinosaur bike. However, the creative project is actually intended to be quite serious. The Norwegian artist developed the completely bizarre mode of transportation to travel across the bible belt of Norway as a form of protest. Moestue explains, "It is a protest against the dogmatic religious education of children, and the idea originated from the theme-parks of creationists that teach children that humans and dinosaurs used to live together."
