Movie Barcodes

Movie Barcode

Can you guess what movie is represented above? The answer is the Wachowski’s colorful “Speed Racer” from 2008. MovieBarCode is an anonymous blog where the webmaster takes an entire film’s reel and compresses and stretches it to create a single frame of streaks of color which represent an entire film’s color tones at one glance. It is very interesting looking at the barcodes of movies you know well and some really stand out from the others. Visit Movie Bar Code to see more.

“Powers of Ten” by Charles and Ray Eames

"Powers of Ten" by Charles and Ray Eames

Created in 1977 by Charles and Ray Eames for IBM, this is an interesting look at scale to the power of ten from the farthest¬† scope of our view, to the smallest.

Andy Warhol paints Debbie Harry on Amiga Computer 1985 (video)

Andy Warhol paints Debbie Harry on an Amiga Computer - 1985

I stumbled upon this old video (below) of eccentric pop artist Andy Warhol ‘painting’ a digital portrait of Debbie Harry in 1985. This video is hilariously bad and fascinating to me, and I figured some of you might appreciate it too. I especially like how the computer guy host seems to be less than thrilled with the color fills Andy is using but Andy is more than fascinated by it and calls his digital manipulation ‘beautiful’ I suppose the concept of this moment is quite beautiful, although the results are laughable by today’s standards. It sure doesn’t hurt to have Debbie Harry circa 1985 as your muse. Witness the first crude steps of a technology that many of us take for granted on a daily basis. (more…)
