Evan Roth is an artist and researcher based in Paris who explores the intersection of free culture and popular culture, making work simultaneously for the contemporary art world and the “bored at work” network. His notable pieces include L.A.S.E.R. Tag and LED Throwies (Graffiti Research Lab), White Glove Tracking, EyeWriter, Graffiti Analysis and a collaboration with Jay-Z on the first open source rap video. 

His latest series of ‘multi-touch finger paintings’ has turned mundane actions, such as checking one’s Twitter, into a work of art.  These paintings resemble Rorschach tests of the digital age. To create them, he places tracing paper of the screen of his iPhone and then, checks Twitter with an inked finger. The ‘Open Twitter, Check Twitter, Close Twitter’ series has one painting for each day in September, which seems to us to be a very reserved number of times to check Twitter. Other finger paintings in the same vein featured above are Slide to Un-lock and Launch Mail. Read Mail. Close Mail.

Minivegas recently created this interactive mirror in Milan for Heineken that allowed users to create light art on site with their own body gestures. The effort utilized the creative collective’s proprietary graphics framework Atlantis, described on the Minivegas site as “a set of user interface components suitable for the rapid assembly of artist tools, which together with a persistent data and parameter system allows artist and programmer to work together on shaping the project’s look without needing to hard-code everything.”

Beautiful Magnetic Sculpture

Minivegas coupled a Behringer Audio Controller with a magnetic force and then projected image data from an IDN magazine cover to make THE MOST fantastic sculpture I’ve seen. Genius.

Typoe - Confetti Death

Miami-based Typoe created this insane piece earlier in the year titled Confetti Death. Produced from shards of spray paint caps, the confetti of color sees a splash through the mouth of a skull, juxtaposing quite nicely with the white wall it’s placed on. Confetti Death was just a snippet of a larger show highlighting the artist’s graffiti and fine artwork.

#Edding - MINDBLOWING

Volkswagen - Twitter Zoom Campaign

Easily one of the best campaigns of the year, evident by the number of copycats, came from Volkswagen. They hid a number of tickets for the popular music festival, Planeta Terra, in different places around São Paulo. Then, they launched an online platform where visitors could see the Google Maps of the entire city. The mechanic was simple: the more tweets #foxatplanetaterra, the closer the zoom on the map. The first person to find to the ticket, won it. Beautifully simple and hugely effective.
