They found him inside one of seventeen cauldrons in the courtyard, steeping in an indigo dye two shades darker than the summer sky.

Hi everyone, Jeaux here. Wanted to apologize for lack of new Los Animales pages. I’ve been going thru a lot of personal stuff right now (sorting that out), I’ve been sick, dad admitted to the hospital, etc. Anyhow, one of the things helping me get thru these sour times has been Richard Hell’s music. Until I get those new pages in Liz’s hands, here’s a "Richard Hell as a black sheep" design I did recently. Trying to figure out where to place him in the background of some of the new pages, so be on the lookout for him and see if you can spot him when they come out. Thanks for your patience while I try and get back on track.

Introducing the world’s first virtual reality art show!

Reality-Shifting Comments By: Rebecca Smith

A recently published article by Liz Ohanesian caught the attention of Cassy Goulding—a member of the Decimal Lab research team—which in turn inspired this post. The article showcases a new phenomenon which has been dubbed the world’s first virtual reality art show. The idea was born from Gretchen Andrew’s interest in both art and technology, which she decided to merge into one unique experience.

According to the article, entitled “At this gallery show, the art isn’t on the wall- it’s in virtual reality”, Andrew’s claims that she is interested in the way that the physical and the digital are related to one another. This interest inspired her to create a new art gallery experience which allows viewers to appreciate her artwork through a technologically mediated environment.

The idea of virtual reality art galleries is an interesting twist on the traditional gallery experience and it certainly highlights the potential to expand wearable technology across a variety of industries. Andrew’s work is both compelling and promising in the sense that it not only demonstrates the diverse nature of wearable technology usability, but it also indicates that there is still plenty of room to expand the wearables industry. 

What are your thoughts on this?
