The Eagleman Stag

Under - Art, Inspiration, Media

The Eagleman Stag is 2011 BAFTA award winning short film by director/writer Mikey Please. It’s mostly made out of some strange white stuff, found in the back of a stress cushion. Mikey worked with his brother Bendict Please who composed the soundtrack and score, as well as the vocal talents of cult actor David Cann who lends his voice.

If you repeat the word ‘fly’ for long enough it sounds like you’re saying ‘life’. This is of no help to Peter. His answers lie in the brain of a beetle.

My inbox is my timeline …

Under - My Musings, Technology

While sifting through some old emails I realized that my inbox reflects most of my life – it is indeed my true timeline not what I made-up on Facebook!

I’ve been using Yahoo email since 1998 and Hotmail since 1996 if remember correctly (though I don’t get to use it much now) – both have documented my life ever since. I can see myself growing – my first job interview email, my appointments, meetings, plans, disappointments, happy moments … my conversations with my wife, and family, and friends. What I purchased/sold/owned or talked about over time. What I liked and shared and how I expressed my frustrations on numerous occasions. I can see my life recorded there, it is a real snapshot of my life albeit not that visual.

To Hotmail and Yahoo, you certainly missed something you always had with you!

Interesting compilation by Trey Ratcliff.

I spend a lot of time thinking about the way memory and sight work together. I don’t think we remember in “pictures” or long videos… but something in between. Perhaps we also sense, at times, more than 30 fps, and unexpected parts of the brain fire when we are presented with certain objects and forms.

Clay art by Meredith Dittmar

Clay art by Meredith Dittmar

Based in Portland OR, Meredith Dittmar grew up in a world of pet pigs, horses, hay-forts and spy games.

Dittmar’s human-animal-plant-energy amalgams contain threads of common elements and colors to express deep levels of union across themes of biology, technology, and consciousness . Her characters are frequently involved in quiet expressive moments, or lounge facing their audience so they can share their inner space. Dittmar believes it is this space we recognize in ourselves, and through convening in that space, the interconnectedness of all things is revealed. She sees the act of spontaneous artistic creation as part of a larger practice of being present, and a way to better understand herself and reality.

Papierkrieg (paper war) by Makaio

Under - Inspiration, Media, Motion Graphics

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.

Papierkrieg:

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).

Translation:
Boy: My airplane is the best one in the whole world. It even has a jet engine!
Girl: Mine has super cannon, which shoots fireballs!
Boy: Mine deflects them with a tennis racket!
Girl: Mine grills you with a flamethrower!
Boy: Doesn’t matter, it has undestructive-paint!
Girl: You’ll stop laughing after my army of killer bees attacks you!
Boy: But i got a flower bouquet…
Girl: ?
Boy: …of carnivorous plants!
Girl: Acidic rain!
Boy: Protective umbrella!
Girl: Gigantic shredder!
Boy: Soup spoon!
Girl: Shotgun!
Boy: Spider web!
Girl: Hammer!
Boy: Teleporter!
Girl: A-booomb!
