Radiohead: 'House of Cards' music video created using Geometric Informatics and LIDAR

"Radiohead just released a new video for its song 'House of Cards' from the album 'In Rainbows'.

No cameras or lights were used. Instead two technologies were used to capture 3D images: Geometric Informatics and Velodyne LIDAR. Geometric Informatics scanning systems produce structured light to capture 3D images at close proximity, while a Velodyne Lidar system that uses multiple lasers is used to capture large environments such as landscapes. In this video, 64 lasers rotating and shooting in a 360 degree radius 900 times per minute produced all the exterior scenes."


[In the search for new ways of 'telling the same story' Radiohead have managed to provide the necessary spectacle through their redeployment of surveying technology in their 'House of Cards' music video.]

Urban Wallpaper: Improvised Juxtapositions

Marshall Soules (Malaspina University–College)
Urban Wallpaper charts the "psychogeographical contours" of selected cities by documenting the improvised juxtapositions––and deconstruction––of cultural announcements. Each image is a narrative of passing events requiring patient translation. Each image is a collective improvisation reminding us that the construction of culture derives from a series of contrapuntal actions partly ruled by chance within a matrix of protocols, and partly created by individual self–assertion.

Patterns of Hypertext: complex webs of links

"The complexity and unruliness of the complex webs of links we create has frequently led to calls for "structured" or otherwise disciplined hypertext [33][20][75]. While calls for clearer structure have tried to avoid, consolidate, or minimise links, it is now clear that hypertext cannot easily turn its back on complex link structures. Where it was once feared that the cognitive burdens of large, irregular link networks would overwhelm readers, we find in practice that myriad casual readers flock to the docuverse. The growth of literary and scholarly hypertext, the evolution of the Web, and the economics of link exchange all assure the long–term importance of links."
