Gif art IRL and emergent behaviour

I was asked to create some GIFs for a new gorilla art project called The Hard G Project. The organizers gave me a couple of tablets to display the gifs on and I got to decide when, where, and how the art was hung. The idea was that we’d leave the tablets up, with my art animating, and they stay up until they are stolen or the batteries die.

I hung one of my pieces on Clarion Alley and stuck around to watch a few people interact with it. When I came back 4 or 5 hours later, I was surprised at what I found… the iPad had been switched to camera mode and a bunch of people took selfies from this odd little iPad hanging in an Alley.

That feeling when people like taking selfies more than they like your art. Sigh…

Return of the PopCast Yo-Yo Vlog

After ten long years, PopCast is back! PopCast is my yo-yo vlog (video blog) that I started running in 2007. Looking back at all the old episodes, I felt really proud of how fun and entertaining they were. So I decided it was time to start making them again. Here is the first new episode:

I’d like to keep making these videos and, over time, improve the production quality with better lenses and gear. Running a small yo-yo shop doesn’t quite cover that, so I’ve decided to launch a Patreon page where people can help support the videos and get special deals and offers from DoctorPopular.com
