Neuroscientists from the University of California, Berkley have successfully discovered a way to reconstruct brain activity into visual format. Researchers at the Gallant Lab had subjects watch movie trailers while placed inside of a Functional Magnetic Resonance Image Machine that scanned their brain function. The collected data was then decoded by computer and matched with visuals from a database of random video clips. What resulted is the following--reconstructed visual approximations of brain activity that clearly match what the subjects were watching. Mind-blowing. Literally!

brand timelines- planners love great visuals
2008-05-25 17:00:00
Noah Brier just gave us a new world of Brand Tags and now Dear Jane Sample has come up with something many of us have always wanted to do, but could never get quite right, the simple art of the Brand Timeline. It's a way to visualize the brands we interact with over the course of the day. It's really Brands in Your Day. Planners love this stuff because it's a nice way to bring thinking to life and it's great to be able to see the time when brands are being used this could even have media implications for example.Perhaps there's another version of this which examines the depth and scale of relationships individuals have with brands something relating to distance. Shown below is the timeline from Doug Jaeger of Happy Corp.Posted by Ed Cotton

Chris Levine the Light Artist
2008-03-22 18:37:00
The "Lightness of Being", a show by Chris Levine, the light artist, has just finished in East London. It was quite a breath of fresh air to go see a local exhibition that was more about making you be aware of the show's environment and not just about analysing the Queen's holograhic prints on a wall."His distinctive visual language and seemingly effortless control over his technological media has differentiated his work from the main stream. His images have resonant power that is both highly original and super modern. As organic and alive as they are focused and precise, the visual results are always compelling and have a sense of distilled purity."Thanks for the photos Toshimi!Quote from Chris Levine's Website.

Nicolas Schoffer Cybernetic Artist
2008-02-21 12:27:00
I was recently commissioned to put together some "retro-futuristic" visuals for a freerock/improv band called Pulsar and have been delving into the world of 60's & 70's futurism. A very very interesting world it is as well! That's how I stumbled upon Nicolas Schoffer (1912-1992)who was a Hungarian-born French artist, architect, sculptor, composer and pioneer of 'Cybernetic Art'. "Schöffer's sculptures and light shows moved and pulsed, guided by an electronic 'brain', mimicking the thought processes of a living organism." What I really like about him was the fact that he was already trying to push the boundaries of our acceptance of different genres of art, especially in a psychedelic, electronic way. I could only show you a few titbits of what he's all about, check this SITE about him for way more inspirational imagery.This video features Brigitte Bardot performing "Contact", installations by Schoffer and music by Serge Gainsbourg.[VIA]

Daim Sprays Virtual Graffiti
2008-01-30 21:10:00
"Walls, trains or house fronts - graffiti need to be sprayed on solid, "real" backgrounds. Doesn't it? An answer to this is provided by the "Tagged in Motion" project, which builds a bridge between real graffiti art and its virtual depiction. The centre of attention is the graffiti artist DAIM, who co-created the nextwall. Equipped with the appropriate technology, DAIM sprays graffiti into empty space. In a large hall, three cameras using Motion Capturing record DAIM's position and the movements he executes with a virtual spray can. The assimilated data is shown to him in real time in a pair of video glasses - as free-floating 3D graffiti in space. In this way he can decide how and where to apply his strokes, and via a Bluetooth controller can also determine the colours, strength of brushstrokes and textures of his work."Although this is just in its infancy, further development of this should see some seriously innovative ways of getting-up virtually.Stolen from Wooster Collective.

The Tale Of How
2008-01-20 17:36:00
This 5 min. animation is absolutely stunning. Created by The Black Heart Gang, it was created over nine months of part time work. The Tale of How is the second part of a trilogy of works called the Dodo Trilogy. In the The Tale of How we meet a giant octopus with a tree growing in his head! His lonely past time is to devour the innocent dodo?s who live on his head. We then see the dodo?s unite and with the help of a little white mouse, we see them escape the clutches of the terrible be-tentacled tyrant and sail off into the sunset on their mother, the tree. The animation was also released with 13 gorgeous prints to accompany it! What I love about this project is how rich and detailed each layer of the animation is and when combined, it really is hard to listen to the story because your brain is going into visual overdrive."The Tale Of How""The Making Of......"

The latest edition to the ESPV gamers room, a fresh 40Gb Playstation 3, has had Dkoda glued to the screen for the last week shooting hoops in EA?s NBA Live 2008.With the newest generation of consoles bringing sophisticated, glamorous visuals and rendering.

Even the background crowd is more detailed.The soundtrack is awesome with some really dirty tunes and the in-game commentary is even more accurate in it?s response to the action, with updated player stats and the odd argument for added realism!

Crazy Science : Blending to the Extreme
2007-12-28 23:56:00
This is one of the best video series I've seen on YouTube!!!! "Will It Blend?" takes the simple concept of blending to the extreme! Ever wondered what would happen to a light bulb in a blender?...or a baseball? Then these should tickle your fancy! Of course, you shouldn't try any of this at home, and that's why I love it..because I get to see the results without having to, and thus reducing the risk of serious harm to myself or others!There are loads more in the series but not all of the items are blendable(if that's a so don't be too disappointed if you pick one that is just a boring still image of what you hope to be an exhilarating show! Also, not all of them are from BlendTec, which ESP considers the Master of the "Will it Blend?" conundrum!Videos found on YouTube by BlendTec

Custom Home Theatres
2007-12-27 19:18:00
So custom toys and PC cases just aren't enough anymore. There are some incredible home theatres now that don't just contain top of the range audio/video equipment but themes of aesthetics too! Behold three examples of home theatre customising to the extreme. This Star Trek theatre is so technically cool that I'm not gonna try and make any lame jokes about how cheesy bla bla it looks....According to Wired, this home "features motion-activated air-lock doors with series sound effects, and a ?Red Alert? button on the Crestron TPMC-10 controller to turn all of the LEDs bright red and flashing. The system also features ?one of the largest Kaleidescape hard-drive based storage systems? ever created, amassing eight servers with 3,816 DVDs." A great theatre for sci-fi lovers. Loads of amazing toys/props/replicas as well as a sweet set-up for the gadgets. This guy has 3 XBOX 360's set up on 3 different screens so the whole family can join in the network fun! WTF?![VIA]

Hellraiser Tribute Teddy Troop Custom

A 3.5" Pinhead Teddy Troop. I've wanted to do one for years but was waiting for the right toy to do it with. The walker was an evil mechanised addition to Pinhead; it's made of an old security camera and has the legs of a Ci-boy Ranger. The turret is fully rotational too! Pinhead and his walker. Pinhead operating his death-dealing machine. I wanted to mix a Hellraiser black with a Steampunk feel. Close-up of Pinhead's walker. From above, you can just make out the dashboard controls and the platform he stands on.

iTunes crazy visuals
2007-11-26 03:38:00
While I don't normally use iTunes built in visualiser, as it generally outputs a lot of similar patterns which tire pretty quickly, after leaving it on full screen while finishing some coursework I found it creating some of the most beautifully jagged yet flowing visuals I've ever seen. What was I listening to to make such tasty eye candy? None other than Manchester's greatest; GNOD.check them out at their myspace ( and if you think they're all that come down to one of their gigs or buy a cd. I now realise this seems like a hackneyed and shameless plug for the band but in all honesty that was never the intention of this post. For those interested the track creating the most eye-popping retina-burning light-sweets are the four parts of Abstehen Der Ohren.In their immortal words I'm going to gnod off.
Digital Vs. Organic Design Part 1
2007-11-19 23:21:00
I have recently come across two very distinct, yet original ideas for battles/competitions that allow for freestyle flow but use two very different mediums for the artists to get their message across. In the red corner, we have the Digital Design Battle known as "Cut & Paste" from USA and in the blue corner, the Organic Design Battle known as "Secret Wars" from UK. I have to admit, when I first heard about graffiti artists/illustrators battling each other to see who could draw a better piece of work in a set time, I really wasn't a fan of the idea. I mean, how can you judge someone elses art as shitter than the other persons? Isn't art supposed to be subjective; beauty is in the eye of the beholder etc.? Even though this would be true in a utopian society, these two comps were borne from the gritty and dark streets of New York and London. Places where people's egos need to be satisfied, especially in the creative/media/design circles. I guess competitions like these were inev...
