UM EXCUSE ME THOS E ARE FUCKING PIXELS HOW
Seize the Day was a calendar program made by in 1994 by Buena Vista software. It features graphics that at the time, were revolutionary because of the way they handled color cycling. These images were static bitmaps, but by changing color values, they appear animated. What is also impressive about these images is that they had full day night cycles built in, rendered also through color cycling.
A few years ago, a html5 version was made. A copy was uncovered online and there is a way to use the program through DOSbox. As well, one of the original programmers for the project, Iam Gilman, has thought of the idea of remaking it, open sourced, for modern machines.
thanks for writing a more elaborate explanation. i’ve seen these pictures be spread like wildfire without mention of the technology behind it.
Oh, I remember the html5 version from a while back.
Wow, if this were captioned at the top with a big black box that just says, “Screensavers From 1994”, everybody who actually remembers the first half of the 90s would be even more astonished by these. That is amazing.
Nicola Samori: The impressive Baroque paintings and some partially destroyed Nicola Samori.
Known for the smoldering intensity of his figurative work, and a dedication to preserving antiquated styles and themes in his paintings, Samorì deftly wields his artist’s brush to create moody and atmospheric pieces that weigh heavily both physically and metaphorically. The creation of each of his compositions is marked by ceremony before a systematic deconstruction. Samorì is most successful, however, in creating timeless pieces of art in spite of — or perhaps even because of — the heavy Baroque influence that runs throughout his body of work. They are as relevant today as they would have been in Michelangelo's — an obvious influence in Samorì's work — 16th century Italian Renaissance. The classical beauty imbued in each of his pieces is only surpassed by his technical aptitude. Samorì is, at the heart of it, a master storyteller and the work as enigmatic as the man.
Wandering Beasts by John Kenn
Kenn writes and directs television shows for children and when he’s not taking care of his own children, he draws monsters on post-it notes. His own “little window into a different work, made on office supplies.”
