November and Beyond

Bobby and Stewart are currently revising new data visualization animations of the global wine market for inclusion in SFMOMA’s exhibition How Wine Became Modern opening next month in San Francisco. The two are building out the graphics using Bronson—their custom animation framework originally created for the Exit piece in 2008 and now two years evolved. Also next month, Stewart is giving a talk about Stewdio at the Creativity and Technology conference in London on the 10th. Further down the road? More collaboration with ZKM in Karlsruhe, Germany. A workshop for Sara De Bondt’s students at the Royal College of Art by Jürg and Stewart. And perhaps a holiday present for the Internet to follow up last year’s Browser Pong. There’s always more around the bend.

O Hai. I upgraded yr Stewdios

Hello World. Again. We’ve rebooted a bit. Update your bookmarks to the new http://stewd.io. Double website all the way. So intense. This is our first major overhaul of the internals since 2008—when we replaced the Google Showcase (Beta) hoax. Some features and content are temporarily offline while we clean up and rebuild (where did those old blog posts go?), but these will certainly return in time. Felt it’s best to launch the scaffold early than to wait indefinitely. You can still catch Stewart on Twitter and watch Stewdio videos on Vimeo. Cheers from our new studio in London (just a door down from the old one) with special shout outs to our space mates Jürg Lehni and Nazareno Crea.
