Holy Week 2013

Since we are currently in what is dubbed ‘Holy Week’ (the week before Jesus crucifixion and resurrection) I though I’d share a brillant timeline made by Bible Gateway that tracks through the various people and interactions throughout the week leading up to the events of easter.

Holy Week 1

This timeline was inspired from an xkcd comic where the same thing is done but for movies. Here is the full timeline.

You can see a larger version here, pdf version here or read more about the process behind making it here.

Lunar Lander Art Installation

Hey there, ok so first take a minute to play this game, it’s a  vintage (1979) game called Lunar Lander. Seriously it’s challenging and heaps of fun. Lunar LanderSo now that you’ve played it you may see why I love old school videos games. Since I also love electronics and art I was pretty ecstatic when I found an project combining all three.

Lunar Trails is an art installation that takes the lunar lander game and draws where people have flown on a piece of paper. Once you have done this multiple time you end up with something looking like this:

Telemetry information of each flight is taken from the computer the game is played on then fed into a custom made string plotting machine. You can find out more about the project here, visit their flickr set here, or watch the process at work below.
