FAT Lab

  1. As we become more and more engaged with the internet in every aspect of our lives, powerful questions have arisen regarding the ownership of digital media and information, the relationship between corporations, governments, and individuals online, the power of pop culture influence, and the dissolving border between the digital and physical worlds. Taking these issues head-on is The Free Art & Technology (F.A.T.) Lab. An international group of 21 artists, hackers, thinkers, designers, developers, and entrepreneurs, F.A.T. Lab employs art, activism, pop culture, and a wealth of knowledge about how the internet works to create projects that challenge people and institutions to think a little deeper about this new world we all live in.

  3. Screen capture video from "Eyeshine" (2011, Golan Levin and Kyle McDonald), an interactive installation which captures, records and replays the retroreflections (red-eye effect, or 'tapetum lucidum') from the eyes of its observers.

  5. Working on an idea with Arturo Castro vimeo.com/29279198 I feel like "good" blending looks almost too natural to be surprising. It doesn't leave any interpolation up to your imagination. It's possible to push this style further, so it's less of a blend and more of a replacement, but then you get unnatural colors and shadows.
