Very innovative use of iPad by Dentsu and BERG in this iPad light painting video ‘Making Future Magic’:
This film explores playful uses for the increasingly ubiquitous ‘glowing rectangles’ that inhabit the world.
We use photographic and animation techniques that were developed to draw moving 3-dimensional typography and objects with an iPad. In dark environments, we play movies on the surface of the iPad that extrude 3-d light forms as they move through the exposure. Multiple exposures with slightly different movies make up the stop-frame animation.
All that I see, hear, touch, experience and dream moves into me and finds it’s way into my artwork. I love faces, bodies, gardens, wide open stretches of land with small forests and fields, old things that have had a life of their own, stories and all the realms in between.
I watched this interesting video on Vimeo few days back and liked it very much. Thanks to Makaio (aka Matthias) for translating his wonderful short film from German to English especially for LivingDesign. I hope to see more of his work coming online soon.
The two-minute short film ‘Papierkrieg’ tells a story about two kids, arguing about whose paper plane is the best. Everything in the children’s imagination seems to become real and functioning. Rapidly they get mad at each other and start a race of arms until it comes to the final clash with weapons of mass destruction where nobody could end up as a winner.
The film deals with the fact, that kids have the possibility to break the borders of the real world through their infinite creativity. On one hand the story shows children’s playful fantasy and on the other it refers to situations in the real world (e.g. political debates).

This brilliant piece of work, Syn Emergence, was conceived by Rich Bevan as part of Masters at the Bartlett School of Architecture – examining his associative relationship between sound, form and space.
The project is constructed according to a range of specific sonic and spatial scale rule sets (micro, component, meso and macro) which I designed as part of a cross-disciplinary notation/cartographic system.
