LOSHADKA



Art group's blog here.
"Loshadka means 'pony' in Russian, the native language of founding member Ilia Ovechkin. It's a twee word, coded in a foreign tongue, and constantly rearranged in gibberish anagrams on the title bar of http://loshadka.org/ -- a compounded transformation that makes a neat metaphor for the group's activity. Members take YouTube home videos, na├»ve digital art, advertisements and other online junk, then tweak and recontextualize them. Loshadka is one of a handful of artists' group blogs, also called "surfing clubs," since the posted objects come from rambling sessions of Web browsing. New media theorist Lev Manovich has compared the net surfer to the flaneur, and Loshadka's giddy, dark sense of humor shares a certain detachment with Baudelaire's perceptive dandy. -  http://www.artinamericamagazine.com/news-opinion/finer-things/2009-03-19/loshadka-surfing-club/

Fingering Instabilities



Laplacian instability occurs when a smooth interface evolving under a Laplacian field develops rapidly growing spikes and branches …The instability has been connected to many disparate phenomena, such as dendrites on snowflakes, forks on lightning, quasi-steady-state fracture, lobes on lichen, coral, riverbeds, vasculature, and urban sprawl patterns. Since the formation of non-smooth features from smooth initial conditions is counter-intuitive, this topic has attracted attention in physics, chemistry, and material science…
Pierre-Simon, marquis de Laplace (23 March 1749 – 5 March 1827)
