Can we expect a future where digital art hangs on the walls of everyone’s homes? Electric Objects, the startup that’s creating a home-computer display system for Internet-based art, called EO1 has been wildly successful. So far they raised a whopping $787,612 on Kickstarter for these digital art screens—their original goal was $25,000. And now, adding to the start up’s momentum, they’re launching a “Net Artist in Residence” program with the New York Public Library (NYPL).
My best guess at what’s going on in this gif? Either a cyborg doing yoga or a future descendent of the Roomba. Either way, I can’t stop looking at this bizarre creation from Francoise Gamma. For more perversely beautiful gifs, head to Gamma’s website.
