Know your memes. A Study of internet virals.

November 15, 2009

Picture 3

I came across this site; Know Your Memes. It is really good, and a must see for people wanting to understand the cause and origins of online virals. I had a good time this sunday going through all these mini dokumentaries (about 4 mins a piece), giving me the back story on virals such as; the keyboard cat, starwars kid, rickrolls, lolcats, numa numa etc. They also coverd some virals that I hadn’t caught on before, which was very interesting. But what I found truly interesting was when they explained how the market and the media tried to get in on the virals and make a profit, and how this affected the different virals. For example the Christan Bale Rant. This viral was heavily pushed by the media and thus peaking very quickly but then again fading away equally fast. This shows that in this example, for a viral to be long lasting it has to come from a more underground independent source.

A must see, for all online marketing people.

Check out his introvid on the site.

Body Slam

Andreas and I made some movie-magic last weekend when he visited me in Germany. I think we spent about 1 1/2 hours animating. A short and fun project.

Interesting concept piece (although this piece suggests facial recognition there’s probably an easier way of doing it)

SOUR ‘日々の音色 (Hibi no neiro)’

Nice music video from Japan. It’s lovely how many different results you can achieve using a simple webcam…

Another brilliant Uniqlo project

June 10, 2009

After the clock, map and of course, their beautiful data visualisation work the’ve now got a calendar.

Working on the simple mechanic of showing tilt shift video of Japanese scenerey which, on interaction, is replaced with tiles showing items of clothing match the colour of the space replaced (crap explananation – visual below).

As always, you can always go through to buy. Another exmaple of Uniqlo’s ability of subverting navigation and usability for an eccomerce site that replicates the real world feeling of rummaging through rails of clothes and having an item catch your eye. And it’s on brand. Simple with a twist.

I Love Alaska

May 15, 2009

I Love Alaska is a series of mini-documentaries over at by Lernert Engelberts and Sander Plug based on the 2006 incident when personal search queries of 650,000 AOL users were accidentally leaked on the interwebs and actually made me go a bit weepy while watching it last night (then again, I am a big softie).

Synopsis: “I Love Alaska” tells the story of one of those AOL users. We get to know a religious middle-aged woman from Houston, Texas, who spends her days at home behind her TV and computer. Her unique style of phrasing combined with her putting her ideas, convictions and obsessions into AOL’s search engine, turn her personal story into a disconcerting novel of sorts.

Over a period of three months, a portrait of a woman emerges who is diligently searching for likeminded souls. The list of her search queries read aloud by a voice-over reads like a revealing character study of a somewhat obese middle-aged lady in her menopause, who is looking for a way to rejuvenate her sex life. In the end, when she cheats on her husband with a man she met online, her life seems to crumble around her. She regrets her deceit, admits to her Internet addiction and dreams of a new life in Alaska.
