Idiot with a Tripod

Under - Art, Inspiration, Media, Photography

An extraordinary film by Jamie Stuart. Not only is it a wonderful evocation of Dziga Vertov’s 1929 silent film “Man With a Movie Camera”, but consider that it was photographed during the blizzard of 2010 (NYC) and edited at lightning speed.

Ok, I know ‘that guy’ now!

Under - Art, Inspiration, Media

It wasn’t that hard to find after all! ‘That guy’ that I first noticed here and mentioned here is Adam Lisagor of Lonelysandwich, and here is an interesting interview with him at the Business Insider.

He is definitely the guy to watch for all the reasons below. Now, since I know who he is, the only question I would want to ask him is where he got ‘those’ glasses from?

Christopher Baker Explores Alaska for Martha Stewart Living

Under - Inspiration, Media, Nature, Photography

Christopher Baker films in Cordova, Alaska to document life around Copper River, one of the last pure watersheds in North America. As overfishing threatens the delicate balance of the eco-system, the state of Alaska and various agencies are working hard to ensure sustainable fishing for future generations.

The story of Cordova is featured in the first digital edition of Martha Stewart Living for the iPad. The “Boundless Beauty” special edition marks the publication’s twentieth anniversary, utilizing the Digital Magazine Suite available on Adobe Labs. Christopher Baker continues his long relationship with Martha Stewart, having worked with her since the Martha Stewart Weddings book in 1987.

Start from the Beginning

Under - Art, Inspiration, Media, Motion Graphics, Music

Animated short by Berlin based artist Andreas Fischer who is a designer slash artist hybrid machine working with spatial time-based media, generative systems and physical manifestations of digital processes:

The video examines the relationship between the simulated image and its physical manifestation. The landscape appearing in the video references one of Fischer´s relief sculptures.

The sculpture is magnified and distorted by the soundscape created by David. As time progresses the landscape becomes increasingly complex and distorted and finally changes its aggregate state to liquid. The shapes of the polygons appear in contrast to the fluid with which they collide.

The 3d model was textured with photos of the physical sculpture, which was carved from a block of mdf with a cnc-miling machine.

Backyard Booty Segment: Natural Progressions

Under - Inspiration, Media, Nature, Photography

Natural Progressions by Ryan Flett

This impressive video by Ryan Flett basically demonstrates what one can do with a DSLR – provided a creative flare is in place. From video footage to 3D photos and timelapses, everything is shot with Canon 7D and then processed with Photoshop and After Effects.

My segment for KMC’s Backyard Booty in Nelson BC. The segment is about the transition everyone in Kootenays make from Fall into Winter. From the moment the season ends we are waiting for it to return.

Cortex – Google Chrome extension for social media sharing

Under - Design, Media, Resources, Technology, Usability

Cortex

Now we can share all those fancy pictures, videos and articles found online in one click to Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and to Instapaper. Thanks to Cortex for making a lengthy process 2 second’s job.

Cortex is the fastest way to share links, articles, videos, images, music to your friends and family across the web.

Cortex, developed by Joey Primiani, is a free Google Chrome extension. Having it installed, I had to setup social media sharing in the Cortex settings after which it was pretty easy – click and hold for the menu to appear and zoom … the stuff is already published by the time you open or refresh your Facebook,Twitter or Tumblr page (support is limited to four sites only at this stage).

Cortex reminds me what Bonnier R&D did a while ago in the form of Mag+ – especially the unforgettable menu dial (below). Although the precise functionality was not envisaged in the Mag+ demo for those Facebook and twitter buttons but I believe it could have been the same as Cortex!

Julian AssangeCATALYST Strategic Design Review is a quarterly publication that was launched in May 2009 by students, faculty and staff of the Pratt Design Management program. It recently published an interesting short article ‘Wikileaks and the Need for Strategically Designed Transparency’ shedding light on a very delicate balance.
