Critical Making

http://www.conceptlab.com/criticalmaking/

Big thanks to Garnet Hertz for including a piece of mine in his new Critical Making zine. I’m honored to be included with so many great artists in this publication.

A handmade book project by Garnet Hertz in the field of critical technical practice and critically-engaged maker culture. Critical making is defined by Ratto as exploring how hands-on productive work – making – can supplement and extend critical reflection on the relations between digital technologies and society. It also can be thought of as an appeal to makers to be critically engaged with culture, history and society.

Village Voice: MeatWater is Brilliant

There have been some recent reports going around the blogosphere about MeatWater, a new beverage that resembles VitaminWater but is flavored to mirror one’s favorite porcine and bovine dishes (i.e., Dirty Hot Dog Water, Wiener Schnitzel Water, Tandoori Chicken Water). What a zeitgeisty product, no? After all, bacon soda recently came to market and all things meat-related grab headlines. But seriously, food writers! Have you not been to MeatWater’s website and realized that it wasn’t an actual beverage product but a piece of performance art? AOL, how dense are you to believe that it is a real beverage company? Still, we had to learn more, so we got in touch with founder Till Krautkrämer. Guess what? MeatWater is even more awesome than we’d originally thought!

Big thanks to The Independent

Thursday, 14 January 2010

Have you ever seen two videos of a completely different nature and thought about how crazy and fun it would be to watch them side by side at the same time?

YouTube Doubler (currently in its Gamma phase – a later phase – of development) will let you do just that and has made it very easy to create your own weird and wonderful video mashups.

The only tools you will need to make your own YouTube Doubler is a great sense of humor and a keen and creative eye (and ear).

For inspiration, have a look at the current top ten YouTube Doubler mashups as recorded on January 13:

1. Requiem for Alex Jones
2. Luckiest Man On Earth (Almost Deadly Accident) vs Human Tetris
3. Goat vs Alex Jones
4. Final Fantasy VII vs 2girls1cup best reaction
5. Joe vs Toby
6. YouTube Dramatics
7. Ninja Cat vs Psycho
8. More Alex Jones vs Goat
9. Hurtful Words vs Geico Caveman
10. ARMY OF THE PHARAOHS – BATTLE CRY vs Fatties at the grocery store rant
