Rafael Puyana Artista + DiseƱador + EducaciĆ³n

1970, Jan-


This animation encapsules the spirit that was driving my work and its divertion from design to art in the early 2000s. During this time, I started exploring design as an artistic project while at the same time I was unveiling the possibilities of this new thing called interface design, as well as animation and programming. Although this work was not functional at all, it was created with a dream in mind that some day it could be completely interactive (which of course we know it can be easily done today). It contains in itself a potential for the new digital medium that during those days was driving thousands of designers into the transition of static and analog work into one digital, interactive and in motion.

You are probably visiting this site from your Smartphone, so you won't be able to interact with this work without Adobe Flash Player (Thanks for that Steve Jobs). However, you will be able to preview a screencast of this work in the videos below.

In retrospective, this exploration was an observation into a transitional moment of consumption and production of media. The choice of thinking about TV as a subject presented a reflection of a medium that started to decay in the advent of the Internet. Also, the new digital democratization of media production arrived with the affordability of tools understood as affordability of knowledge: easy-to-use software and programming languages, and affordability of price: cheaper software but especially illegal and free access.
