Art (,the thread about)


You are right.
Everything you described is art.
This thread is as good as any to discuss it.


Yeah absolutely, would definitely love to see more stuff.


It’s not defined. People are just putting up stuff.


Great! One of my favorite pieces in recent memory is Plantas Autofotosintéticas by Gilberto Esparza. Basically, a hybrid organism powered by sewage.

I also really like CellF by Guy Ben-Ary. I think people here may get a kick out if this one. It’s a modular synth controlled by cultured neurons grown from the artist’s own undifferentiated stem cells.


I curate an exhibition called digiPlaySpace here in Toronto as part of the year round programming at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF).

It’s an exhibition of new media art (interactive installations, computer art, sound art, etc) aimed at a core audience of kids 3 - 13 years old. It’s meant to educate, but also to inspire kids to think about technology as a creative tool rather than just a consumption device.

We’re just in the midst of programming our seventh year of the show. If anyone has seen any amazing installations that might be appropriate I’d love to hear about them!

I think I mentioned this in the thread way back in February, but now that I’m back to work on the 2018 show, and new media came up in the discussion, it seemed like maybe a good time to bring it up again :slight_smile:

One of my favourite pieces from last year was Mimic by Design I/O. It’s an industrial robot arm that is trained to respond to the movement of visitors in much the way that an animal at a zoo would respond. It really feels like it is alive.


Webs and branches.


I made a comic book!
Here’s the schpleel from this page (where one could order one too…if one were so inclined)

"My new comic is ready to be held by your delicate reader hands. I didn’t give it a title, but we can misleadingly call it The Rodrigo Constanzo Story (we have to refer to it by something). He wrote the initial script 11 years ago and I’ve been picking at it since. But don’t worry–you won’t be able to tell it’s production spanned over a decade. It’s just as stupid as if I had banged it out in two weeks…but that delightful kind of stupid, ya know?

Q: Ok, so what’s it about?
A: It’s not about anything. It takes place in an office and there are three characters.

It’s A5 sized, laser printed on thick, really nice quality paper, and 32 black and white pages. The back cover is Rod’s spectacular jalapeño mac n’ cheese recipe, and it is in color."

I watched this video last night. It does an amazing and very articulate job tracing the trajectory of computer graphics, looking at how we arrived where we are, declaring the uncanny valley conquered and contemplating what lies beyond it (and for me, most interestingly, adjacent – “the wilderness”).


Somewhat related to “the wilderness” in the video above:



I did the design/artwork for a friends debut release on a cool Swedish label.

Hi, i am publishing a small art zine called 99 percent invisible. (i recently change the name to Soul Traits)

If you would like to be part of the next issue or the ones to follow, please send me your work (photography, collage, illustration, creative writing and comic) at

Soul Traits offers an opportunity to be published in print, as well as online on the website and social media with future continuous support.


Artwork/illustrations by me, designed and done in close collaboration with Florian and Stefano. My first vinyl cover!

If you can call it a cover, as it’s practically a sleeve… but anyway, very excited and happy with the result. Pantone-printed pattern on half-transparent matte paper, very nice tactile surface. Sealed in japan packing.




Out now on Don’t DJ’s disk label. Here’s a snippet as well:

Edit: Added better photos. It popped up on hardwax - here’s a link:


I now have a whole new appreciation for the potential uses of mac and cheese. Thanks @Angela and @Rodrigo!


ha! make sure to use the hashtag #bradpittsdick when you post pictures :wink:

^^ WOW that’s beautiful (ordered!)



Wanted to share an artist that I’ve been following on Twitter for a while named Everest Pipkin.

They’re really prolific and have a diverse portfolio of stuff…to (probably badly) try to condense that, my understanding is that they are interested in combining technology (especially tech behaving incorrectly) with a lot of ornamental detail to create visual (and sometimes other forms of digital) work.

Some cool things:
