Even the way Macs CRASH is artsy

When James Theophane, creative director for the Lost Boys agency, was asked to contribute a piece of art for a recent reception, he decided to go the “mixed medium” route. Taking a horrible old Flea Market painting, James painted over the lower half and added a motorized foam core “beach ball of death” to simulate a Mac freezing up while loading a jpg.

Of course, most people born in the last 20 years or so can’t even remember when a jpg would load progressively, but those of us with 28 kbs modem battle scars will appreciate the thought.
