Ganz fantastische Arbeit von Alan Warburton: Für Transitions I hat er einen Bewegungsunschärfe-Algorithmus auf die Abfolge der Britischen Premierminister angewandt, von 1721 bis heute. Parlamentarische Personalfluktuation und politisch-personalisierter Progress als Algo-Kunst. Ich bin echt ziemlich begeistert. Grandios! (via Algopop)

This project examines motion blur detection, a technique used to interpolate between sequential images, simulating the effect of an object or camera moving quickly. In Transitions I, these algorithms are repurposed and pushed to their limit when applied to a non-contiguous sequence: portraits of British Prime Ministers from 1721 to the present day.

The series shows a search for continuity, where each pixel attempts to find its twin in a completely different image.

Alan Warburton kennt ihr vielleicht für seine experimentellen Motiondesign-Arbeiten, die gingen im letzten Jahr halbwegs rum. Seine Animation Psychometrics hatte ich schonmal hier in den Links irgendwo, das war damals allerdings noch ein Test-Rendering, long Story short – Bonustrack: Psychometrics.

Late capitalist networked culture is obsessed with improving performance. TED speakers are cult idols, sharing their commandments for success and productivity. On social networks our friends become brands, and brands become our friends. Self-help books are interchangeable with business philosophies. In the conference room - and the weekend supplements - we learn how to shape ourselves, how to be consistent, how to operate. Reduce entropy. Maximise consistency. Become an industry of one.

You are an engine. One day you'll fly away.
