Meet the Favicons

With the concept of Favify being addressed in the previous post, I wanted to formally introduce the nine favicon renderings used to kick off the project. Keep in mind, the images that invade your screen are not official logos from Texas art organizations. Rather, they’re abstract virtual sculptures based on the website favicons of the organizations. Using Google SketchUp, I extend the pixels of the favicon into columns whose height is governed by that pixel’s color luminance. In some renderings, the tallest columns are the darkest pixels, and in others that scale is reversed. (The choice is an aesthetic one.)

More favicons will be added into the project throughout the summer, so if you’d like to see your institution/art site/blog crack into the queue, make sure it qualifies and shoot me an email or a tweet. Or, if you’d like to incorporate Favify on your own website, please see the Favify Your Website section.

The first nine favicons (in no particular order) are identified after the jump.
