New Vimeo Channel – Tech Art

I love Vimeo. Along with Twitter I find it to be one of my most valuable sources for creative inspiration. Also the constructive community is far far away from the usual FAIL/WTF/LOL/First/Fake types you regularly encounter on YouTube.

On my travels I’m constantly adding interesting videos to my favourites (or ‘likes’ as Vimeo calls them). There are so many incredibly inspiring artworks in there that I’ve decided to create a new channel – Tech Art – to showcase the best examples of creative code. It is a collection of pieces that fall into the categories of installation art, projection mapping, music/data/math visualisation, augmented/mixed reality, multi-touch, physical computing and anything else that utilises technology in a creative manner.

If this type of work floats your boat, then have a look here and don’t forget to subscribe if you have a Vimeo account.

    I asked Twitter why Vimeo is so nice, while YouTube is so nasty. One of my social media chums put it down to “intimacy”.

    I think that sums it up fairly well.

    The main difference is that the majority of Vimeo users are creative people who can relate to and sympathise with other creatives. YouTube attracts everyone and his dog, hence the ignorant, vulgar, bullying, racist, childish, illiterate scrawl you often see. Not to say it’s all like that though. There are plenty of intelligent responses but they are often drowned in the nonsense.

    Rant over 🙂

    I totally agree with your comments.
    I much prefer Vimeo over Youtube, its so nice to actually get sensible, constructive comments from a creative artistic community.

    Also i think your Tech Art channel is great!
    I’ve subscribed and am looking forward to checking it out in the future, many thanks again.
