    Doodles are the fun, surprising, and sometimes spontaneous changes that are made to the Google logo to celebrate holidays, anniversaries, and the lives of famous artists, pioneers, and scientists. The Archive pages, arranged chronologically, preserve the Doodles of past years celebrating, for example, the 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta, St Valentine’s Day, the Mexican 2015 elections and Saul Bass’ 93rd birthday. Clicking on the Doodle, some of which are animated and/or interactive, gives interesting information on the illustrator, the creative process and details of the event/celebration behind the logo.

    This self-styled ‘Robin Hood of the avant-garde’ was established 15 years ago as an archive and distributor of art films and is now partially based in Mexico. The disclaimer tells us: ‘All materials are for non-commercial and / or educational use only.' There is some fascinating and rare work here as well as some genuine obscurities. Along with Tweets and podcasts, the site hosts dozens of films, shorts and features, ranging from early works by the likes of Brian de Palma and Joseph Cornell to more widely-known experimental filmmakers by such renowned practitioners as Andy Warhol, Jean Cocteau and Norman McLaren. Part of the site is now devoted to electronic music and sound. The website is large and cleanly laid out though the lack of any guided search tools is unfortunate - the legal aspects behind the hosting of much of the content is at best questionable, but its intentions are seemingly honourable.
