The ultimate mashup

A friend of mine from high school has developed a portfolio of Web sites and online applications that we might consider the ‘ultimate’ example of mashups. But, what I respect the most about his work is that, as an artist, this not just a new cool application; it is what he describes as “online projects that reimagine how we relate to our machines and to each other“.

Of Jonathan’s Web sites, I think my favorite is 10×10 – an always changing ‘snapshot’ of current events and news from around the globe. The site pulls headlines AND images from major news sites and consolidates them into 100 frames of words and pictures that display what is happening at that moment.

Another intriguing site is We Feel Fine. This site pulls the phrases “I feel” or “We feel” to compile an in-the-moment display of excerpts of love, feeling and emotion from our social world.

I encourage you to check out this  inspiring and refreshing interpretation of how Web sites and social networks can be a visual collage of our lives, our emotions and  relationships.
