Mitch Trale

Mitch Trale:

I have recently discovered the great work by Mitch Trale, which is quite mesmerizing including colored and gradient based loop animations running through .swf like the one above from atrophy.in series, and gif layered compositions like in renders.in (showing one on the bottom of the post). Mitch Trale has also created interesting virtual and interactive websites which make the user feel a perfect fusion between virtual and real environments, my favorite one is Gallant Aparatus, due the structure of the virtual space fits very well with the real structure of Yayoi Kusama's installations.

Three Reinstalls After
Yayoi Kusama —The Internet obliterates itself

by providing a surface upon which

an infinite number of sites may exist as

independent contextual zones. 

Analog Environments, 2009

"This piece explores the perceived divide between our online and offline experience. The Internet is a projection and reflection of what we think the world is like. Our online reality is as inextricable from our offline reality as any object in any mirror, however distorted.
We use technology to attempt a capture of true sight. The application of photography, holography, 3D geometry scanning, and VR, will inevitably flatten the dimensionality of the world. It's this apparent loss that leads us to believe that digital sight exists on a level beneath analog sight.
I believe that these two sights run parallel, and that each possesses a distinct ability to visualize the superstructure of the Internet, as well as the logics which drive our offline lives."
