Use All Five Squiggle Graphic

The Mission to Save Vanishing Internet Art and the Perils of Peak Attention

Take a look at some of the latest ideas, products, and visuals for the week of October 23rd brought to you by our strategists, designers, and developers.

Ideas

The Mission To Save Vanishing Internet Art: As web browsers and computer operating systems stopped supporting the software tools they were built with, many works have fallen victim to digital obsolescence.

The Perils Of Peak Attention: Two new books assess the quality of our digital lives: How do we shake off the village when we carry the world in our pocket?

Behind The Icons: An interview with Susan Kare, the woman who helped create Apple’s graphic interface.

Quora Sessions With Kevin Kelly: Senior Maverick and Co-Founder at Wired, Kevin Kelly, answers a series of questions on the future from users of Quora.

Products

Camera Restricta: A tool that prompts photographers to only capture one-of-a-kind images.

Rovables: The tiny robots crawl vertically on unmodified clothing, meaning there’s no need to wear a special shirt to have them drive on you.

Aran Blocks: A patent pending building blocks system that can create useful weight bearing structures including small furniture pieces and much much more.

Visuals

Mark Leckey, No Longer Art’s Wunderkind, Is Now Its Wizard: “I want people, when they come into the space, to feel both polluted and that they’ve moved into this altered state,” he continued, “a state that’s akin to what music does, where you get lost.”

Breakfast: A quick short film about how different people in LA approach breakfast, from the woman who nibbles to the professional bodybuilder who eats 30 egg whites and a cup of grits on his off day.

Typesetting: The aim of this project is the creation of an archive of publicly sourced images of found typography in the Leeds area.
