This week on the blog we introduced two new videos from our San Francisco event, one featuring Shabazz Palaces and the other Zola Jesus, along with a new profile vid from AraabMUZIK. Also on the blog we looked at father of Op-Art Victor Vasarely, learned why Ryder Ripps’ digital agency thinks your web design sucks, saw how you can DJ with a BMX, spoke with Radium Audio about how to soundtrack warring microbes, looked at the state of fashion in the dawn of the New Aesthetic, checked out some expressive robotic jewellery, and chatted with Kid Koala about his interactive live show, cookies, and turntablism.
Meanwhile the rest of the web gave us this:
· Just add cats: We’ve heard a lot of talk about the New Aesthetic, but there’s a more pressing topic at hand: The Mew Aesthetic. Discuss.
· Mmmm. Delicious additive manufacturing: The Choc Creator is a 3D printer that prints chocolate.
· Infographic showing the gruesome body count from the Friday the 13th movies—there’s even some virtual reality teens and an alien in there.
· Smart ASCII Twitter animation used to advertise smart car. J to go forward, K to reverse.
· Meta-layering: The two designers, Francesco Rugi and Silvia Quintanilla, who created the RGB wallpaper we wrote about a few weeks ago have now used the same technique to create silk scarves, so you can have layers on your layers.
