What the Hell is This? Well, Something Called ‘Cachemonet’


By Kiran Aditham


We originally had no idea what’s doing with this GIF-tastic site, but tipsters tell us it comes BBH Labs’ Tim Nolan and Jen Lu, which has been around for a couple of months but seemingly keeps adding to the hysteria. According to an original Vimeo description, Cachemonet “is an exploration into paired randomness. The site uses two separate random arrays that generate animated compositions using two planes, a fixed foreground element, and a repeated background element. A new random composition is generated by page refresh every four seconds.” We emailed Nolan for further background, but have yet to hear back. For now, we think you get the idea. We’ll update if and when.
