OFFF 5 - Stamen

10 may 2007 at 18:00 — Roots room, CCCB - BCN


Despite of their long trajectory (the machine to paint in Flash Splatter is already a classic), the work of the Californian study Stamen has received greater attention recently thanks to their innovating projects for Web 2.0 in which they use all class of data flows, from the GPS coordinates of taxis in San Francisco to the 911 calls in Midwest USA. Lead by Eric Rodenbeck and with talents such as Tom Carden and Ben Cerveny, their most ambitious project so far is perhaps Digg Labs, the experimental zone of the popular news social service, where the frenetic activity of the members of its community can be followed in real time.
There's very few input from this lecture because I was broadcasting the whole session to Nathalik.
