Unlogo: Software Eliminates Logos In Video Recordings
Tech artist Jeff Crouse's program acts as a digital content filter, blocking out corporate logos from videos.
Boing Boing points us to a mind-blowing bit of software being developed by tech artist Jeff Crouse. His Unlogo project acts as a kind of digital content filter, obscuring corporate logos from video recordings.
It’s simple: you upload a video, and after your video is processed, you get an email with a link to the unlogofied version (example: http://vimeo.com/14531292). You can choose to have the logos simply blocked out with a solid color or replaced with other images, such as the disembodied head of the CEO of the company. This scheme is a bit ridiculous (which is kind of my style), but I like it because it literalizes the intrusion into the record of your life that these logos represent.
