interesting uses/example of projects/pieces using Flash?

Posted by Rhizome | Tue Feb 13th 2007 6:04 p.m.

Hi~ I'm teaching a digital multimedia art class at Harvard with Flash as
the tool/weapon of choice. I'm looking around for additional
projects/pieces online using Flash that I can show to students. The pieces
don't have to be code-based necessarily- just good work. Reply on or off
list.

Thanks,

--Roy

    Hi Roy

    You may be interested in the 15x15 project which is a Flash based piece which utilises user submitted mobile camerphone video footage and is based on Warhols '15 minutes of fame' stament advanced into the 21st century and to 15 seconds of fame:

    http://www.15x15.org

    The project has been selected as a finalist in the art category of the SXSW web awards which take place in Austin next month and you could always vote for us in the peoples choice section ;-)

    I'd be interested to see what your students think of it!

    I've added some info below, but feel free to contact me if you require anymore.

    regards from England

    New Media Art Project: 15x15

    In 1968 Andy Warhol stated that; ‘In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes’. Using Warhol’s statement as a premise, 15x15 advances the statement into the 21st century; with new media technology anyone and everyone can be world famous....for 15 seconds.

    Participants can contribute to the piece using a standard mobile camera phone that can capture video, and can send video clips directly from their camera phone using MMS (Multimedia Message Service), via email or upload from your personal computer to the online database http://www.15x15.org or email me@15x15.org

    The clips should be the standard video setting for a cameraphone, 176 x 144 and can be longer than 15 seconds but will be reduced to that length, participants can send as many clips as they wish. The clips can be portraits, experiential, vignettes, experimental, anything within reason, from the banal to the downright bizarre!

    The viewable artwork is an interface consisting of 15 individual rectangular screens, each individual screen displays a random video clip stored within the database for a 15 second duration: 15x15.

    In the 21st century art is being fundamentally realigned for anyone and everyone. 15x15 is a homage to Warhol, a realisation of the artistic utilisation of new media technology and the democratisation of art in the age of digital production.

    Year of production: 2006

    Technical requirements:

    Requires fast internet connection and fast computer (processor) and Flash 8 player. The piece can be viewed on a monitor but is best viewed as a projected piece.

    Produced by:

    Richard Vickers, Oliver Dore, Greg Brant
