Canon Pixma Sound Sculptures from Dentsu London on Vimeo.
Canon Pixma Sound Sculptures from Dentsu London on Vimeo.
Dentsu London has just launched a beautiful project promoting the new line of Canon Pixma printers.
Done in collaboration with the biochemical / photographer Linden Gledhill, the project called "Sound Sculptures" can be considered surreal, capturing paints simply dancing through the waves of sound. All captured with maximum detail and color. The agency came to Linden through its project called "Water Figures", which became known worldwide, and would fit perfectly to the concept "bringing color to life," used by the Canon PIXMA printers.
The photographs and filming took place using a Canon 5D Mark II, Canon EF 100mm Macro USM.

Robert Seidel's "Chiral" cinematic etudes expand the two-dimensional image into space, refining ideas from Chinese calligraphy and abstract art into an evolving moving painting. They are projected on a sculpture and a screen made from handmade Taiwanese paper and there develop very different lives on configurations of the same material... They were exibited at Museum of Contemporary Art (Taipei, Taiwan) earlier this year.

Drawing on insights culled from the Mozilla community through the project’s blog, a focus quickly developed around frustrating physical interactions.

This is interesting video animation recording Asteroid Discovery From 1980 - 2010, over the last 30 years. Not only does it show the orbits of the asteroids in relation to the inner planets, it highlights them over time as they were identified and colors them according to how close to Earth their orbited.
The only visual inaccuracy is the size of the asteroids as it wasn't possible to make some asteroids smaller than one pixel.

Computers are becoming an ever increasing part of modern life and gaming is a large part of this, being used to relax, socialise and more recently, exercise. Gaming platforms such as the Nintendo Wii have made it possible for people to get their own personal sports work out from the comfort of their living room, using hand held controllers and a balance board to participate. So why can’t a pair of NIKEs work in the same way?

Arcade Fire continues to be the band pushing the music video form forward, this time with a personalised video that pulls map and Google Street View data on the viewer's home town and works it into a beautiful multi-stage visual and narrative journey.
Director Chris Milk and Google Creative Labs artist Aaron Koblin led the project, collaborating with a large team from @radical.media, B-Reel, Google and friends like designer / developer mr. doob.
You'll remember Milk and Koblin collaborated last on another music video, for the Johnny Cash Estate. This time, though, they've pushed boundaries on how technology and creative ideas can work together and provided yet another wonderful showcase of the feature set of the Chrome browser.
After a viewer inputs the address of the home he or she grew up in and the video renders and loads, a multi-window journey through various satellite views of the viewer's neighborhood ensues, with a hooded figure running home as the various Maps and Street View images follow.
New layers pop all over your screen, as the browser senses how large your display is and uses the full area available.The satellite and Street View images are rendered to keep them uniform and ensure color grading is consistent.
At the song's climax, as the goal is reached, a drawing program appears and the video asks you to write a message to the earlier version of yourself that lived in that house. Keystrokes and cursor lines grow tendrils unto themselves.
The experience was constructed in HTML5 using its Canvas tools, according to the Chrome Experiments site.
The film goes a long way toward improving the perception of Google's toolbox, like many of the efforts in the Chrome Experiments series before it. But wrapping in Maps and Street View data goes even further. The bridge between plain but useful Google services and pieces of creative online content is wide. Building Brand Google into something other than a technology monolith depends on collaborations like this to show how delightful those elements can integrate with creative vision.
Arcade Fire, meanwhile, continue to excel in providing its fans with experiences worthy of the music. Remember, when the Neon Bible album arrived, the band debuted this great interactive video site. Now, with its Suburbs album debuting at the top of the Billboard charts the band has an equally worthy accompaniment..
Aiming at to sensetize the people in the cold that walk the streets in the winter, the ONG Brazil People accomplished an action, in which projected images on the walls and in that way interacted with the public and got them to donate their warm clothes.
The architecture of the contemporary city is no longer simply about the physical space of buildings and landscape, more and more it is about the synthetic spaces created by the digital information that we collect, consume and organise; an immersive interface may become as much part of the world we inhabit as the buildings around us.
Augmented Reality (AR) is an emerging technology defined by its ability to overlay physical space with information. It is part of a paradigm shift that succeeds Virtual Reality; instead of disembodied occupation of virtual worlds, the physical and virtual are seen together as a contiguous, layered and dynamic whole. It may lead to a world where media is indistinguishable from 'reality'. The spatial organisation of data has important implications for architecture, as we re-evaluate the city as an immersive human-computer interface.
