Artist Paul Destieu created a common Windows error that using 500 copies of his “My Favourite Landscape” print.
"My Favourite Landscape is made of 500 70 x 50 cm offset prints. It is a reappropriation of the well known Windows XP desktop : Green Hill. Taking advantage of the weakness of the computer, it sets the common bug out of its context, on a wall, expending it to a much bigger scale. The famous picture finds a new landscape shape out of its usual frame. "

Realistic 3D Paper Portraits by Bert Simons.
"The first step in his process of making a paper portrait is digitizing a model. Bert starts his work by putting a lot of points on his model’s face to have some reference when modeling. He then takes all the data into his computer where he reconstructs the face with Blender, the open source 3D program. After 3D modeling Bert goes back to 2D by flattening the texture and then printing everything out. Finally, he glues this incredibly complex 3D puzzle and turns it into hyper-realistic portraits. "

Tableau: physical email

Gear  |  Projects
Tableau by John Kestner, a piece currently on display at the Saint Étienne International Design Biennale:
"As our social circle spreads across a wider geographic area, we look for ways to share experiences. Technology has reconnected us to some extent, but the interfaces are not as simple as handling physical media. My great aunt Olga loves writing letters and shuffling through photos. I, on the other hand, write emails and share photos on Flickr, and as a result, we don’t communicate nearly as much as we’d like.

Tableau is an refinished heirloom nightstand that stores and retrieves memories using a Twitter account. It acts as a bridge between users of physical and digital media, taking the best parts of both. The nightstand quietly drops photos it sees on its Twitter feed into its drawer, for the owner to discover. Images of things placed in the drawer are posted to its account as well.

Tableau is an anti-computer experience. The nightstand drawer becomes a natural interface to a complex computing task, which now fits into the flow of life. "

Giant Portrait arts by Artist Jorge Rodriguez Gerada
"Rodriguez-Gerada creates portraits in charcoal of people-until now anonymous-which scale the walls of buildings in our cities in a format that we can begin to describe as gigantic. They are gigantically defying, proud and dignified, more social than political. But let us not be mistaken, the art piece is not the charcoal drawing. The artistic process begins with the search for the city, the building, and most importantly the person to be depicted. This person must have a sense of belonging to the city that hosts the artwork, and must accept being converted into a monumental hero (like those of modernity described and defended by Baudelaire.) Rodriguez-Gerada’s protagonists become Goliaths confronting the powerful King Davids of politics and advertising. They reclaim the public spaces that have been snatched from our hands by advertisers anxious to sell us perfect men and women, and politicians, who against all the evidence, want to convince us that they are perfect. "  F. Javier Briongos Ibanez writes, from NYArts.
