Alicia Eggert creates kinetic, electronic, and interactive sculpture and installation work. With a background in interior and architectural design, Eggert builds her work with a temporal conception reflected in the stillness and movement of her pieces. Implementing a variety of objects in her designs, such as clocks, flashing LED text, a perpetually spinning bicycle wheel, and re-usable ceramic coffee cups that shatter down a perceived assembly line, Eggert uses simple ideas to convey a world of depth. Some of her work is created in collaboration with other artists, as she values sharing the creative experience with another person. She currently lives in Portland, Maine, and teaches sculpture and architecture at Bowdoin College.

Ibon Mainar uses visual multimedia to create whimsical and colorful work. Whether he is creating gifs, torn cardboard designs, Instagram videos, video projections onto foil and tinsel, or sculpting gum and popcorn, Mainar’s aesthetic is contemporary and playful. His interjections into Edward Hopper’s paintings create a curious juxtaposition of modern and contemporary aesthetics. With simplicity and humor, Mainar develops a visual language across various media that feels novel and universal. Mainar lives in San Sebastian, Spain.

Ben Dehaan Alters The Printing And Drying Of Photographs By Removing Light

Ben DeHaan‘s “Uncured” series captures the decay of a printed photograph as a result of the removal of the UV light used to instantly dry the ink on the page and cure the image. These portraits appear as if they are melting and evoke a surreal aesthetic, creating a completely unique visual experience that questions the idea of simple replication. In this series, Dehaan also seeks to address the role of machinery and the physical environment in the response to forces that construct the image. (via)

Gifs of Creepy Clones by Erdal Inci

me_slidingkamondo_strains

In a way, endlessness is a fundamental characteristic of gifs.  However, the work of Turkish artist Erdal Inci, highlights this aspect of a medium in a style that is especially hypnotic and creepy.  Inci has worked in video for nearly ten years.  He’s since translated work into gifs using his same clone and light effects.  In them, he seems to produce an endless hoodied army of himself marching, sliding down handrails, hopping up and down stairs.  Though the action is brief, its repetitive nature makes it difficult to pull away your eyes.  All of the Erdal Inci clones in lockstep trudge on together until we manage to close the window.  [via]

Video Watch: Dumb Ways to Die

There are many many dumb ways to die and the latest campaign from the Melbourne Metro illustrates a handful of them set to an original song for a video appropriately titled “Dumb Ways to Die.” Featuring a downloadable song by Tangerine Kitty, the video is one piece of a campaign that includes a website hub and tumblr full of gifs.

In a style that marries the palette of Friends With You and the sensibility of Don Hertzfeldt, “Dumb Ways to Die” is an adorably morbid reminder to not be an idiot.

Bop your head along to the full video after the jump.

Mark Portillo


Mark Portillo does gif portraits of his friends and celebrities (ie Obama with a rainbow gradient going across his face). He says he placed every pixel one by one and to please make his carpal tunnel worth it by clicking on the full images when you go to his website. I really like this guy doing speedy pushups. I can only do like, 10.

Did any B/D readers have a bad day today? Look at the above image. Stare at it for a minute. I defy you to not become happy. You can thank a French designer by the name of MDCCLXIV, who has a ton of really cool pixel art (a lot of which are GIFs) up on his flickr page. Be sure to check out his groundbreaking Microsoft Excel art, most of which I wasn’t able to post here.

ONLINE DATING

AKA, the summation of my love affair with the internet. I saw this site on Rhizome.org 6 months ago, truly loved it for a day, forgot about it for a little bit, then wasn’t able to find it again and instantly regretted it (I remembered it as “MATHLAB” instead of “MATHWRATH”). Fortunately I was able to reunite with it yesterday when I saw it on VVork. I feel as if a part of my life has come full circle…
