Clay Animation: Strata-Cut
"Strata cut animation involves making 3-D rectangular pieces of clay in layers. It was invented by David Daniels. David lays out the clay in a four dimensional space to create the large block of clay. Then the clay is normally slid on popsicle sticks towards the camera as the front part is sliced off to reveal a new section of clay. Characters faces or images are animated in the 4-D space before the camera captures the movement. It's possibly the strangest way to animate, and has the look of oil on water during a breezy day."

The myth of “programming is the only creativity”
"The geeks – the people who have, so far, been the dominant part of culture in technology and the Internet – are like priests of a religion that finds themselves no longer the centre of their culture’s world. They are displaying all the standard behaviours of a dying religion: Flocking to new prophets, who aggresively promote their message; lashing out bitterly at the heretics who are “betraying” them; and even trying desperately to preserve their way of life by saying “look how easy it is to become a priest!”"

Prologue: Iron Man 2 | Motionographer | Motion graphics, design, animation, filmmaking and visual effects
"Not since the Minority Report have interfaces played such a major role in a Hollywood blockbuster. For Iron Man 2, Prologue lifted screen design elements off of flat surfaces and into the three dimensional world surrounding Tony Stark. As he struts through his secret lab, a virtual world of swirling data and wireframe plans pops forth from the genius playboy’s fingertips, creating a seamless dance between man and machine that elegantly echoes the symbiosis between Stark and his exoskeleton."

iPhone RFID: object-based media [via: http://vimeo.com/4147129]
"This is a prototype of an iPhone media player that uses physical objects to control media playback. It is based on Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) that triggers various iPhone interactions when in the range of a wireless tag embedded inside a physical object. ... RFID is becoming more common in mobile phones (under the term Near Field Communication or NFC) from manufacturers such as Nokia. By looking at Apple’s patents we know that the technology is being considered for the iPhone. With the iPhone SDK 3.0 external hardware accessories can be accessed by iPhone software, so third party RFID or NFC readers are also possible. ... Compared to other mobile handsets the iPhone is a particularly media-friendly device, with a large, bright screen and high quality audiovisual playback. What if this screen could act as a ‘lens’ to content that resides in the world?"

"And so we come to the end of our little journey together, not really a destination, but more of a visual stopping point. This is another example of man’s expression on a wall and very much part of our everyday visual experience...."
