Landscapes by Jason Anderson Blend Precise Pixelation and Hazy Abstraction

1 Comment

“Platform”

U.K.-based artist Jason Anderson creates abstract urban landscapes using pixelated patches of pastel-toned oil paint. Each work on linen has a single focal point of bright yellow usually representing the rising or setting sun, though in the painting above the illumination comes from an approach train. Anderson balances the natural and manmade by primarily featuring infrastructure—ships, marinas, trains, buildings—that appears small and distant within each pastel haze.

Anderson’s career began with stained glass restoration projects at cathedrals and he shares in a statement that his training in the jigsaw-like aspects of stained glass design and repair continue to inform his style as a painter. See more of his paintings on Instagram and Twitter. (via This Isn’t Happiness)

Scenes From Award-Winning Literature Crafted With Hand-Cut Paper by Zim & Zou

1 Comment

Paper artists and collaborators Zim & Zou (previously) were invited to create miniature worlds inspired by previous Nobel Prize winners in Literature. The tolerance-themed traveling exhibition Sharing Worlds was organized by the Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Knowledge Foundation. The French duo built pieces based on Kristin Lavransdatter written by Sigrid Undset (published in 1920), and One Hundred Years of Solitude written by Gabriel Garcia Marquez (published in 1967). Using their own classic style, the pair created colorful scenes packed with geometric details. Their interpretation of Kristin Lavransdatter was created as an ode to 14th-century Norway with a technicolor city set between a pair of deep burgundy mountains. The other work, One Hundred Years of Solitude, features a verdant home nearly hidden from the world by a lush pink and green garden.

The exhibition closed last month, but you can take a virtual tour of it on the Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Knowledge Foundation website. You can follow more of Zim & Zou’s recent work on their Instagram and Behance.

AMP pages will now show original URL in Chrome's address bar, fundamentally changing how the web works

2 Comments and 3 Shares

Google had its 2019 'AMP Conf' in Tokyo today, and announced a series of changes and new features coming to the company's Accelerated Mobile Pages project. The most important announcement was that AMP pages will now show the original URL in the address bar, which should solve the platform's greatest point of confusion but it's only making things worse.

When you tap on an AMP link from Google Search, you aren't actually taken to the optimized page on the site's own server.

Welcome to nope-town. Google announced that its AMP pages will show the original URL, not the one filtered through Google infra. Hell. No.

I'll repeat myself yet again: Chrome is the new IE. C'mon back to Firefox, y'all. (Plus the Android version supports extensions.)

I’ll second that. This is utterly anathema to the very idea of the web.
