ASCII Silhouettify

quote [ converts images into ASCII silhouettes, a style of ASCII art distinguished by uniformly filled geometric shapes rather than lines or textures. For input, the app expects flat graphics?visuals with minimalistic, high-contrast forms lacking dimensional depth, such as logos, banners, and pixel art. ]

Looks interesting and goes into some depths of translating dimensions into classic ASCII chars.

A Black photographer added himself to places where history didn?t want him

quote [ No matter that this man is handsome and of spotless character ? he?s Sidney Poitier, for crying out loud ? his presence, in all its Blackness, marks an intrusion, upending this hitherto White space. ]

This is absolutely fascinating. I can't help but to imagine the lives and beliefs of the people in these photographs, and to wonder what they'd think of Omar.

A Janitor's Mysterious Masterpiece

quote [ James Hampton?s magnum opus was discovered posthumously in a rented garage he had converted into his studio. The installation features over 180 individual found objects, mostly collected from dumpsters on his way home in the early hours after midnight, when he would clock out from his janitor duties at the GSA in Washington DC. ]

What a killer Winnie the Pooh can tell us about remix culture

quote [ ?The biggest limiting factor right now is that almost everything that anyone wants is has to be from existing IP,? says Johnston, whose newest project is an animated adaptation of Roald Dahl?s ?The Twits? for Netflix. ?And that that the notion of an original idea is somehow scary, certainly to a marketing entity, because they just have to work harder to get it into the public?s consciousness. That?s the bummer.? ]

Notes on copyrights, reusing and remixing, featuring some remarks from Dntel in the end. Thumb via some 10 year old mix from the latter.

Great interview on a movie prop builder with nice photos.
