We are the Sacre

Schallwelle als Nähmaschinennaht

A tangible way to make audio visible. Equalizers and simple sub-titles on TV already visualise sound, yet this has also a physical texture. Using an old sewing machine and a car radio as a basis, they conceptualised a prototype, which would take sound input and convert it into a sound wave of thread on textile. A fitting analogy between music production and sweatshop manufacturing.

heimlich fotografierte Textbotschaften

Fotograf Jeff Marmelstein hat jahrelang heimlich Leute beim Texten in der Öffentlichkeit fotografiert- also ihre Inhalte. Spannendes, auch medienethisch provozierendes Projekt.
(Könnte aber auch inszeniert sein.)

You can tell a lot about people from their text messages. Just ask Jeff Mermelstein, a master of modern-day street photography who, for the past three years, has been surreptitiously snapping pictures of New Yorkers’ phone screens on his own iPhone.

Rembrandt’s Nachtwache in 44.8 Gigapixel

Geradezu obszön-

One of Rembrandt van Rijn’s most iconic paintings The Night Watch is currently undergoing restoration at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. As part of the effort, the team took hundreds of photographs of the Dutch master’s painting and stitched them together into a massive 44.8 gigapixel image, which they have released online in a zoomable interface. The level of detail available here is incredible. Here’s the max zoom level on the right eye of the gentleman in the middle, the captain of the company that paid Rembrandt to do the painting.
