A Spacecraft for All”: The Journey of the ISEE-3. | Digital MediaArts Numériques | Scoop.it
Dennis Wingo and Keith Cowing formed the ISEE-3 Reboot Project, a crowdfunded effort to attempt to get in contact and gain control of the decommissioned spacecraft for the benefit of citizen science. The team raised almost $160,000 in funding, and assembled top space experts for the cause. In May 2014, they began successfully communicating with the spacecraft in advance of its August 10th lunar flyby.

The evolution of the web - Interactive infographic about the evolution of browsers and the web

The evolution of the web - Interactive infographic about the evolution of browsers and the web | Digital MediaArts Numériques | Scoop.it

Interactive infographic about the evolution of browsers and the web. This infographic features major web browsers since 1993 such as Mosaic, Netscape, Opera, Internet Explorer, Safari, Firefox and Chrome as well as key developments in web technologies such as HTML, CSS and JavaScript.


The web today is a growing universe of interlinked web pages and web apps, teeming with videos, photos and interactive content. What the average user doesn't see is the interplay of web technologies and browsers that makes all this possible.


Over time, web technologies have evolved to give web developers the ability to create new generations of useful and immersive web experiences. Today's web is a result of the ongoing efforts of an open web community that helps define these web technologies, like HTML5, CSS3 and WebGL, and ensure that they're supported in all web browsers.

The colour bands in this visualisation represent the interaction between web technologies and browsers, which brings to life the many powerful web apps that we use daily.

Map of the Internet App by PEER 1 Hosting

Map of the Internet App by PEER 1 Hosting | Digital MediaArts Numériques | Scoop.it

While curiosity around the Internet has loomed since its inception, no one has been able to explain what the Internet physically looks like. Today, I’m excited to share that we have officially launched our Map of the Internet app, which provides a stunning 3D visualization of the Internet and all of its autonomous systems worldwide, as well as how they are connected.


In 2011, we took the first step in developing this visualization with the debut of our Map of the Internet infographic poster. Driven by our continued passion for all things having to do with networking, we designed this app to further bring to life what the Internet looks like – and how the various autonomous components interact to connect the world. While it’s certainly cool and a fun app, we think of the Map of the Internet app as an educational tool that represents the Internet’s evolution from 1994 to present day, highlighting key moments, like the launch of Internet heavyweights Facebook and Google, for example...

HistoryShots: Prints and Posters that Tell a Story - by Larry Gormley & Bill Younker | Digital MediaArts Numériques | Scoop.it

We create visual stories about subjects and topics by combining deep amounts of data with thoughtful designs. Our goal is to make this intersection of information and art compelling enough so that you'll want to display our prints and posters in your house, apartment, office or dorm room.

We started in 2004 and our graphics have won numerous design awards and have been featured in dozens of visual information design publications. However, we're still relentlessly trying to merge subject, data and design into the perfect graphic.


Whether you are a film, golf, or music enthusiast; a political junkie or history buff; or a fervent follower of any other subject covered by our catalog of prints, we hope you'll buy one and put it on your wall.

COMPLEXITY GRAPHICS - the amazing datavisualization of Tatiana Plakhova - data, network, biology, map

COMPLEXITY GRAPHICS - the amazing datavisualization of Tatiana Plakhova - data, network, biology, map | Digital MediaArts Numériques | Scoop.it

The main idea is to show a new way of “infographic” drawings. Because everything we see is biological, mathematical or geological information. It can also be cultural patterns or any other thing. Complexity Graphics works are based on mathematical simplicity and harmony. I would describe them as infographic abstracts. This mathematical style helps me to illustrate everything from biological cell to the space and meditative worlds. That’s why I admire by math, because it’s everywhere and nowhere.

Plongée au cœur du Web par David Larousserie

Plongée au cœur du Web par David Larousserie | Digital MediaArts Numériques | Scoop.it

Et si les secrets de la réussite des géants du Web, les Google, Facebook, Twitter ou autres Amazon trouvaient leur origine au XVIIIe siècle à Königsberg, en Allemagne ? A cette époque un mathématicien, Leonhard Euler, donna en effet naissance à une discipline devenue pilier de ces sites Internet : la théorie des graphes. Le problème d'Euler était de parcourir les quatre quartiers de sa ville sans emprunter deux fois l'un des sept ponts les reliant. Soit, sur un dessin, le fameux graphe, quatre sommets (ou noeuds) reliés par sept arêtes (ou liens).

 

Les problèmes des vedettes du Web sont conceptuellement semblables, mais à une tout autre échelle : des milliards de "quartiers" (les pages Web, les profils, les clients...) et des milliards de "ponts" (les liens html, les "amis", les achats... reliant tout ce beau monde). La question est d'inventer les outils permettant de trouver la bonne information dans cette nuée, d'identifier des noeuds capitaux pour la bonne tenue de l'ensemble, de regrouper les gens par affinité, ou de recommander de nouveaux produits aux acheteurs. En outre, contrairement à Königsberg, cette "ville" possède des quartiers et des ponts qui bougent, naissent ou meurent...

Trying to find beauty in complexity. The Internet-Data of Dries Depoorter - By Silvia Bertolotti

Trying to find beauty in complexity. The Internet-Data of Dries Depoorter - By Silvia Bertolotti | Digital MediaArts Numériques | Scoop.it

Dries Depoorter is a young Belgian media artist who focuses his work on programming languages and digital media. As declared, he “tries to find the beauty in complexity” when performing his artistic research. He is just graduted his media-art study program at KASK, School of Arts Ghent (http://www.kask.be/).

 

One of his last works, Subtwitter 

(2013, http://www.driesdepoorter.be/subtwitter/) featured in theDigital Now: Drones/Birds: principles of ubiquity exhibition held in Brussels the last April, catched the attention of the audience for its innovative approach and its questioning of social media tools (I reported about the exhibition for Digicult, as you can read here: http://www.digicult.it/news/dronesbirds-princes-of-ubiquity-the-bird-metaphor-as-a-contemporary-cultural-form/)


Subtwitter is in fact a small application that scans subtitle-files (.srt) and replaces them with similar tweets. For its input the application uses an original subtitle-file of a movie or series (provided by the audience). The application then looks into each separate sentence of the subtitle and crawls the twittyverse for a similar tweets (i.e. on Twitter). The output of the program is a completely new subtitle-file in which all subtitles consist of computationally associated tweets. Though Subtwitter it is possible to “sub tweet” any kind of movies, series or video material. This project shows the recent interest of the artist for social media as main source for data information introduced by human beings. ...

Astroverb - A language based horoscope for Facebook by sosolimited

Astroverb - A language based horoscope for Facebook by sosolimited | Digital MediaArts Numériques | Scoop.it

The Creators Project commissioned three artists to transform your Facebook profile into a 3D printed object. We created a language-based horoscope system called Astroverb, built upon a fictitious Mystical-Scientific framework called Morpholumenology.

The application extracts your Facebook Wall Text. It then uses linguistic algorithms to analyze how much you talk about yourself, what time of day you do it, and how much you use certain categories of language, in addition to what your friends say to you. The algorithm plots all of this data on a circular chart called the Semantic Plane.

The application generates a predictive nugget of wisdom for you and traces out a customized shape called a Morphogram. Using the Shapeways 3D printing platform, you can print out your Morphogram as a real amulet.

Ars Electronica: The Big Picture - Curated by Visualizing | Digital MediaArts Numériques | Scoop.it

As our world becomes increasingly complex and inter-connected, we need a new lens to help us make sense of it all.

Science helps us model and understand complexity; design helps us interface with and manage it. Combined, science and design constitute a singularly powerful lens to navigate the future.

Data visualization applies this lens to the growing volume of data in the world. Through this craft, we are starting to gain a new "Big Picture" perspective on the patterns, flows, and forces that underpin modern life, prompting new ideas, insights, and emotions.

Visualizing the Big Picture is a collection of contemporary works produced by designers and scientists that reveal this new perspective.

Building Inspector by NYPL Labs - huge collection of historic maps

Building Inspector by NYPL Labs - huge collection of historic maps | Digital MediaArts Numériques | Scoop.it

Old maps are great, but there's no point hoarding them away where no one ever sees them or uses them. The New York Public Library is doing some creative things to make its huge collection of historic maps more accessible and relevant in the digital age, and their Building Inspector game, launched in October, is the latest example. It harnesses the idle time of New Yorkers (or anyone else) to inspect and correct building footprints in the digitized versions of fire insurance maps from the 1800s. In just a few weeks, volunteers plowed through 61,000 buildings in an 1857 atlas of Manhattan. Now the library has set them loose on an 1855 atlas of Brooklyn.
