I’ve been lucky to work with Ensæmble. Not only to create this showcase website for them, but also earlier in 2015 I collaborated with them to create a data driven dance piece. I was more than happy to help to realise the website to the specifications of Ensaemble. It is made of five triptychs, and the individual images change at randomly chosen specified intervals. Take a look!
International Teletext Art Festival website needed to be transformed into a responsive WordPress site. Besides being the main site for the festival it presents the works by the artists in a virtual gallery.
A unique custom WordPress theme was created from the ground up.
The artists wanted there to be two paths, which in practice meant two sequences of dozens of images side by side on the screen. The images are animated gifs, and the player advances on the path by pressing keyboard buttons.
The images are accompanied by a sound track, realized by selected sound artists. The sounds loop independently from the images, and the player is able to stop or play a sound. The sound selection also advances sequentially, and maximum of two sounds can be heard at the same time.
The main challenge is to see all of the animations and reach the end. The player is also able to create a combination of images and sounds, and thus become a creator in the process.
This simple jQuery script will enable you to add images for the individual tags of the WordPress tag cloud (wp_tag_cloud). With the script you can style the tag cloud too without touching the core (or WordPress) functions. The image sizes correspond to the font sizes given by the tag cloud function of WordPress.
You might except a grander programme from that title, but this is actually a quite simple and straigthforward project. I needed to have a neat visual effect for a WordPress based website I was renovating and at first used the default options to make a gallery. I had five images in the gallery for testing. Because all of the images didn’t happen fit to the same row three were in the upper row and two in the lower. By accident the images made an inverted staircase pattern of two rows. From that I got and idea of creating a complete staircase of three rows by adding one extra row with one image. The images would be picked randomly from a larger gallery.
