Top 10 May 20

Hi and welcome Top 10.
Check out these little pearls... Then say happy birthday to Miranda Kendrick on Facebook, cell, postcard or straight to her face.

Take care and see you next week.


1. 'Rome' Project: A Chrome Interactive Video

Daniele Luppi & Danger Mouse's Rome collaboration project arrives next week, and to stir enthusiasm the duo have offered fans the power of flight via the Google Chrome-interactive "Three Dreams of Black" video, featuring Norah Jones. 
The awesome interactive film (check it out here - use Chrome!), which allows the user to infect the city with a blast of nature and beyond before taking flight over an Easter-egg-filled desertscape, brings together much of the team behind the remarkable Google/Arcade Fire HTML5 project from last August to test out the possibilities of WebGL, a new technology for the browser.
According to Ro.Me, “WebGL is a context of the HTML5 canvas element that enables hardware-accelerated 3D graphics in the web browser without a plug-in. In other words, it enables your browser to show some really beautiful visuals.”
The site also features a model viewer that allows users to take part in the demo mode testing of various characters featured in the video. The site explains further: “On this page, you’ll find a WebGL model viewer featuring several of the “3 Dreams of Black” creatures. You’ll also find 8 demos created by our development team, a link to the code base, and some links to resources on the web that will be useful for getting started in WebGL programming.”
Love that apocalyptic cityscape in the beginning. Interesting Mario 1up mushroom and Reddit nod towards the end, as well as recent updates including Megaman and many other gaming notables. There’s plenty of little hidden gems for you to explore and find at the end of the video (even a flying city?):

4. Winston Chmielinski

Winston Chmielinski:

I apply pigment to dust and people still ask why the paint’s falling apart. The intention was never to create something solid, but built upon my own body I guess it misled; one can imagine these, then, as the quilted skins of others, a slick parachuted sheen against a picture perfect sky, set afire simply for yellows and reds and ash-rimmed circles of blue.

8. Maarit Hohteri

Maarit on Maarit:
I photograph to remember my life and people who are important. I take pictures of people close to me, I try to record the feelings and perceptions that my friends have about life. My photographs are observations on what happens around me, and by taking pictures I try to preserve moments that exist at any particular time. For me, taking photographs is one way to create a sense of continuity and meaning in this world. It is an attempt to make a seemingly fractured life in to a whole; a story with a past, present and future.
