Christmas ExperimentsSee the full experience
We wanted to create a web exhibition for Christmas which features digital artists. To make it, we thought to an advent calendar where the chocolate is replaced by a web experimentation. This idea was perfect because it allowed us to highlight one artist and his realisation during one day and it was exactly what we wanted. Also one of the biggest challenge was to contact digital artist who can made beautifull experimentations in a limited time. We started to contact and invite participants the 30 November and the 1rst experimentation was here the 1st December.
The Building Blocks
The website is construct to focus on experimentations and give the maximum of freedom to each artist about how he want to make it. So each experiment gets it's own page and is loaded inside a fullscreen iframe. With this architecture, the participant can make his experimentation with the technology and the organization of code he want without thinking how it will be integrated in the final design. Also we chose to make this project opensource, the source of the website and all experimentations are available on github
- 30 gif are used for the konami code
- 26 passionate digital artists
For us, it's the passion and the love of participants for creation, design, web and new technology which made this project a success. They all participated and worked hard on their experiments, for free, to create with other passionated peoples a poetic, fun or impressive experience for the viewers before christmas. This passion and lovely spirit definitively pushed up the project and we are sure the viewers can feel it.
