iPad Book producer Appucan (http://www.Appucan.com) has released two new books in its ongoing Art Series. The two iPad books, Deconstructed Faerie and Missing in Silverlake, are now available through the Apple iPad app store.
Deconstructed Faerie contains 98 haunting images mashed together through sampling over 13,000 web images. An algorithm containing specific key terms was deployed to search the web for images. Among the terms used were fairy ring, dwarf, crystal, cave, roots, branches, dirt, stones, clouds, eyes, and others.
A second automated procedure ran a randomized algorithm combining and then re-combining images until 300 new, original works remained. Of these, the artist selected 98 for the Deconstructed Faerie iPad book and composed original music to accompany each of these haunting images.
In June 2011, Deconstructed Faerie was previewed at the Secret International Outdoor Arts and Film Festival and received the Best New Media presentation award.
Appucan is using 100% of the net profits of Deconstructed Faerie to help construct a prototype Eyewriter computer system to enable paralyzed people to operate their computer through eye movements.
Deconstructed Faerie is by N_7000 & The Cohort of Disembodied Artists, Blackburst Lodge and is available via http://www.DeconstructedFaerie.com and the iPad app store for $ 9.99.
Missing in Silverlake is a set of 115 lost (and found) pet posters collected over a 15-year period by Los Angeles-based Film and Television Editor Lindsay Mofford.
The posters, shown exactly as found taped and stapled to walls, street lamps, telephone poles, and elsewhere show sometimes desperate, sometimes indifferent, sometimes humorous, and often heartbreaking efforts to locate lost pets.
I was drawn to the hand-made personal folk-art approach so many of these posters contained, says Ms. Mofford.
The majority of the posters were collected in the Los Angeles area, specifically around Silver Lake.
Missing in Silverlake is available via http://MissingInSilverlake.com and the iPad app store for $ 2.99.
Appucan is a platform for creating iPad apps out of sets of images. The Appucan Art Series works with artists and photographers, museums, and galleries to help create iPad apps featuring their work. Appucan iPad apps can be sold or given away through the worldwide reach of the iPad app store. For more information about Appucan, please visit http://www.Appucan.com.
