ASCII I – IV

I’m experimenting with turning video into ASCII streams. Here are the final video pieces: This is an intercut single channel version: This is a quad split of the intended four streams to be used in the installation space: Some stills – click to see them larger in their full glory.      

Windows is Loading…

The story of my life. I rather like the fact that this gets faster as it downloads.

Flags of the Agents

Rather than be annoyed by the endless proliferation of estate agents signage I’ve decided to turn them into abstract art.

All you have to do is paste in the URL of a website (such as a blog) with some text in it and hit randomise – et viola! Instant gratification. I particularly like the fact that you can export at very high resolutions – ideal for importing into After Effects to fly a camera around or for printing out and sticking on the wall. […]
