newness

back in the day — like, a year ago — i remember waking up every morning to 50+ notifications in my inbox. i wasn't expecting this today. i'm barely around these digital spaces much anymore. there's a promise kind of swirling in the background, that i'm away with a purpose and coming back. i keep thinking hey, maybe today's the day. nope. a couple weeks later. is this it? still no.

and then today i'm sitting here looking at this number and wondering why it's here, but i see there are a lot of new people around. hello all. glad you're here. i hope you will enjoy what i contribute to your streams. 

generally it's going to look rather like this...

barcodes...

this podcast is the reason i'm thinking about multidimensional data storage solutions at the moment. i especially enjoy when +Jerry Whiting from azalea.com says:

when future archaeologists come across remnants of our backward-ass civilization and they stumble across a barcode they're gonna assign it religious significance if they don't understand the supply chain.
When George Laurer goes to the grocery store, he doesn't tell the check-out people that he invented the barcode, but his wife used to point it out. "My husband here's the one who invented that barc...

PM code

three dimensional QR code, using colorspace as a third dimension on the usual 2D format. capable of encoding vastly larger amounts of data than just a URL plus a few characters. the creators call it paper memory and i desperately want to play around with it, but will probably need to hack my own version...

mad scientist art guy
Introduction
hello friend. i'm max, nice to meet you.

living in art, forever a student of design. i love all things digital. 3D, photography, graphics, web and print, plus any media i can get my hands on. currently obsessed with user experience and glitch fairytales. as a mad scientist i construct universes, populating them with my creations.

my personal site is over at m.oxru.in, formerly somethingformed.com

graphic & web designer since 1995. playing in ultra minimalistic HTML/CSS  sandboxes, former tech guy fixing gadgets, presently UX wizard. something formed is my publishing brand, google plus is my artist's notebook where i collect sketches and ideas, research, ponderings. some keywords: texture, language, music, infographics, sci-fi, things that end in -punk, game theory, glitch, noir, zen. history nerd and tabletop gamer.

previously on google+ i assembled weekly Friday Art Critique digests powered by the Art Nucleus community, cohosted the Art+Talk series of discussions, and served as keeper of the grounds in ARTlandea.
