Random Selection In Random Image .com

Random Selection In Random Image .com is a new website created by Jan Robert Leegte who continues working focused on GUI and transporting them to the website with great concepts. This time Jan Robert used the selection marquee from Photoshop which has already used for previous physical art works. The website is quite addictive as it creates uncertainty about what will be the next image (refresh to load a new image) and what is going to be selected. The selected part sometimes coincides with our first look or the subject on the picture but sometimes it doesn't and it forces us to look at some random selected point on the picture which we had not paid attention.

Jan Robert Leegte tells us more about this project; "I've been working around the concept of the "selection" marquee from photoshop for many years now. I made sculptures, and architectural installations. The notion of the manifested or materialized cognitive process of selecting intrigues me. I see it in an ongoing passion for what I call hypermateriality. A material that is highly confusing and powerfull. Currently I'm all back on the net as medium, and made an adaptation in JavaScript of the selection marquee. Wanting the web to decide on the image, I chose to randomly select an image through the Flickr API". See more;
