Specially designed for the “8 variations for Stradivari” exhibition at Cremona, Italy (May 2013), this style is Kobi’s view of the classic instrument. The brown leather mimics the warmness of carved wood and with “strings” up the heel and S-shaped “holes” on the insole and sole, the transformation into a shoe shape is complete.

Harp Footwear Art by Kobi Levi

This design is inspired by the classic harp. Like the instrument itself, it is shaped around an empty space, where the main details are placed to complete and emphasize the overall look.

UM EXCUSE ME THOS E ARE FUCKING PIXELS HOW

Seize the Day was a calendar program made by in 1994 by Buena Vista software. It features graphics that at the time, were revolutionary because of the way they handled color cycling. These images were static bitmaps, but by changing color values, they appear animated. What is also impressive about these images is that they had full day night cycles built in, rendered also through color cycling.
A few years ago, a html5 version was made. A copy was uncovered online and there is a way to use the program through DOSbox. As well, one of the original programmers for the project, Iam Gilman, has thought of the idea of remaking it, open sourced, for modern machines.

thanks for writing a more elaborate explanation. i’ve seen these pictures be spread like wildfire without mention of the technology behind it.

Oh, I remember the html5 version from a while back.

Wow, if this were captioned at the top with a big black box that just says, “Screensavers From 1994”, everybody who actually remembers the first half of the 90s would be even more astonished by these. That is amazing.

See how helpful it is to leave information on stuff?
