    Europe After the Rain - Max Ernst
Closely associated with Dada and Surrealism, Max Ernst made paintings, sculptures, and prints depicting fantastic, nightmarish images that often made reference to anxieties originating in childhood. Ernst demonstrated a profound interest in Freudian psychoanalysis, which is apparent in his exploration of Automatism and his invention of the Frottage technique. The artist’s psychoanalytic leanings are evident in his iconic 1923 work Pietà, or Revolution by Night, in which Ernst substitutes the image of Mary cradling the body of Christ with a depiction of the artist himself held by his father. Much of the artist’s work defied societal norms, Christian morality, and the aesthetic standards of Western academic art.

    The Persistence of Memory (1931) 
Salvador Dalí was a leading proponent of Surrealism, the 20-century avant-garde movement that sought to release the creative potential of the unconscious through strange, dream-like imagery. “Surrealism is destructive, but it destroys only what it considers to be shackles limiting our vision,” he said. Dalí is specially credited with the innovation of “paranoia-criticism,” a philosophy of art making he defined as “irrational understanding based on the interpretive-critical association of delirious phenomena.” In addition to meticulously painting fantastic compositions, such as The Accommodations of Desire (1929) and the melting clocks in his famed The Persistence of Memory (1931), Dalí was a prolific writer and early filmmaker, and cultivated an eccentric public persona with his flamboyant mustache, pet ocelot, and outlandish behavior and quips. “Each morning when I awake, I experience again a supreme pleasure,” he once said. “That of being Salvador Dalí.”

    GoSquared Analyzes the London 2012 Games
The 2012 Summer Olympic Games, officially the Games of the XXX Olympiad, are all set to begin in London tomorrow. There’s been plenty of excitement surrounding it in the air lately and a lot of iOS apps have come out both for iOS and Android platforms, including these official ones. GoSquared, one of the most popular real-time web analytics apps and based in the UK, decided to celebrate the London 2012 Games by putting together this gorgeous single page website — Analyzing London 2012.
The website, put together by the talented team at GoSquared, lays out interesting numbers and trivia about the event in a beautiful way. The site makes excellent use of Parallax scrolling, to display the content. There’s plenty of examples of CSS3 animations and transitions in the site and the pixels and colors as handled fantastically. I really like little touches like Usain Bolt running across the screen, the background color changing from gold to silver for that trivia and the way the arrows for the stadium height expand as you scroll further.
Since GoSquared is a web analytics product, the bottom of the page has a world map that tells you how many people are currently viewing the web page and from which part of the world. At the very bottom, the page shows you how long it took you to scroll though the page and compares it to Usain Bolt’s speed. Brilliant.
This is my favorite kind of website and we’ve featured similar sites in the past. It’s one of those sites where I can’t help but mention, “Scroll baby, scroll”. Go ahead and check it out, what’re you waiting for?

    App of the Week!

    http://www.protectedapp.com

    Have you ever been in a situation where your friends or family wanted to check out your phone, but you were reluctant to give it to them because you feared that they might view some of the photos you have stored on the device and don’t want others to see? Or may be you’re just not storing the photos on the device because a lot of people handle your phone, even though you wish you could? Yes, there may be various reasons why you’d want to keep some of your photos private. Unfortunately, iOS does not give you the option to password protect your albums.

    Protected will help you. Protected is a simple iPhone app that acts as a safe for your private photos. Designed by Lucie Karásková and developed by Pierre Abi-Aad, Protected lets you create multiple albums and add photos to them, which are then protected with a password that you can set. You can either import photos you already have on your phone or click a new one and have Protected save it directly. It also gives you the option to either add a dump of photos via iTunes, or export the ones already in the app.

    My favorite thing about the app is its icon featured in the masthead above. Though I’m not particularly fond of the flash, it looks great as an icon of a toy camera with photos stuffed in it. When you launch the app, there’s a login sheet that is pulled up from within the icon and this screen has some nice transitions as well. The app too has been well-designed and the bariol font used looks nice.

    However, I do have some quibbles about it. For starters, when viewing the individual photos in an album, the bar at the bottom and the glyphs look like they were done in a hurry and look out of place. There’re also a couple of grammatical errors, but the developer’s already working on an update to fix that. In spite of this, Protected is still a great little app to have at $0.99 on the App Store.

    Vinyl Goes Wireless
Designer Kőrös Benedek noticed that 99% of today’s vinyl players were designed for DJs and were really more suitable for mixing or scratching than playing music. His response was this compact player, designed for serious music junkies. While the Golden Era is minimal, it utilizes advanced technologies like DLNA and Airplay to bridge the gap between the MP3 generation and the golden era of music.

Olafur Eliasson on his light show for the Olympic Games:
“For me, the Games are about being together, about sharing attention and ideals. They are about connectivity – feeling connected to people from all over the world – and physical engagement and energy. Light can be something more than just a means of illumination. Light generates action: it is an energy transmitter and as physical as anything you will see in the Olympics”

    Christopher Bucklow - Tetrarch, 2010 
Photographer Christopher Bucklow pushes the boundaries of his medium to explore nature, process, and the human form. As a part of the “cameraless” photographic movement in the U.K., Bucklow’s ongoing “Guest” series (1993-) uses pinhole camera techniques to create large-scale photograms of human figures. The complex process begins with projecting silhouettes onto aluminum foil and tracing them with thousands of small pinholes. He then places the foil over a sheet of photographic paper and exposes it to sunlight, the various qualities of light on a given day yielding different colors and shades in the projected image.
