NinerPaint was a totally amazing app for Palm OS. It was one of the best Palm OS apps around. Now it’s coming to iOS, and, it’s coming back to Palm OS as well. This is brilliant news. As soon as it’s available I’ll let you know.
I finally finished listening to this. I’m not entirely sure how to describe it. It isn’t really a book or audiobook, it’s more of a poem or piece of art or something different entirely. What I can say is that it is a thing of somewhat rare beauty and I can recommend it to anyone who likes John Foxx’s work or is at all interested in different and beautiful art which is both mesmerising and entirely thought provoking.
I hadn’t seen these in a long time and when I did I thought I’d put them here so you could see the kinds of things I used to do with NinerPaint which was a great art app for Palm OS. So far I haven’t found anything similar in the iOS world. Or perhaps I just haven’t looked hard enough?
That could be it of course, and I should perhaps have another look at some point.
So I went to the National Gallery to see the Soundscapes exhibition. I’d heard a lot about this exhibition and I thought that the concept was great, but was interested to find out for myself.
So the way it was set up was that each room had a single painting together with the artist’s sound work for that painting. There were 6 actual pieces and a film about the overall concept where the artists talked about there work and how it had come about.
I think that the idea, the concept, and the process was great, but sadly more successful than the overall result. A couple of the pieces worked well but on the whole I didn’t think it was all it could have been, which was a shame really.
I’m glad that they try these things out though. That’s what’s important really.
