A niave pastiche of the classic Dubonnet by AM Cassandre for the cafe society of today. We take a lot on trust in the technology we use.

Cybersecurity and privacy is framed by our relationship with technology. I wanted to show this by giving the keyboard a voice.

Ben commented on Cafe Society.

Jen. Thanks. I am pleased with it. Trust is not the sexiest part of Cybersecurity but very important. I had another idea using the same style, but it didn’t fit the same brief as this one. I guess it’ll have to wait on the back burner for now.

Ben commented on Phoney War

Being British, counting oneself out is the fun ;-). I like the thinking. In my mind’s eye I see a slight variation on that working well. I want to play with the perspective so perhaps having the solider as a flat translucent graphic rising from the surface of the phone. Or perhaps being cast as persistence of perception led style image being radiated from a point on the phone. Assuming I have the skills to pull either of those two off convincingly.

Ben commented on Crypto Visuals

Toni. I may need a little time to come up with some reasonable suggestions. But there are two thoughts in my mind. One is a mentronomic element (clock tick for example) with a simple melody drawn through. Two was a soundscape of conversations (perhaps made from the words in the visuals) that start of as understandable and become jumbled and disjointed (like hearing snippets of conversations as you walk around) and become understandable again. Tooling wise I’m not really a fan of generative music, but use the usual selection of Logic Pro, midi guitar and software synths. Can timecode to anything, or simply use the audio signal as a part of the visual generator?
