Thanks to Christian B for sharing these amazing collages which have been made up of fragments of architectural photography. Extracts of Local Distance by studio Feld is a stunning project, where they have dissected and analysed the vanishing points of various architectural photographs, and then reconstructed them to create a whole new perspective. There is a vertigo-inducing, science fiction-like quality to these, as if the viewer is being introduced to a new dimension. Check out the making of video here and click on the images to view a larger size.
Grace A found this cool initiative – ‘Drawsome Intern’ by ad agency Muse Amsterdam. Instead of recruiting interns the usual way, they’re using the popular mobile game ‘Draw Something‘ to receive applications. Hopefully we’ll be able to see some of the drawings submitted — there have been some Draw Something pictures floating around on the Internet that have been nothing short of amazing.
Zonna found the stunning work of Swedish artist Janne Parviainen via Yahoo Singapore, titled ‘Lighting Topography’. Using light sources and a camera on a long exposure setting, Parviainen traces vivid patterns and shapes, creating electrifying images filled with bright light streaks. His photos take 20 to 37 minutes to create and are based on common household settings. He maintains the authenticity of his photos – “all the photos are straight from the camera, and there is no post processing of any kind has been done to them,” he explains. See more of his work here.
Thanks to Holly for making us aware of Muscle Music – the latest, and rather brilliant campaign from Wieden & Kennedy for Old Spice. This one features NFL Terry Crews, who appears to operate a complex one man band using the sheer strength and reflex of his muscles. The video alone has the usual bonkers Old Spice sense of humour, but the best bit is that the viewer gets to join in at the end! W&K worked with Vimeo to create an interactive experience where the viewer can play the instruments through their keyboard, record their work and post it back up online. Genius. Found via It’s Nice That.
If you’re in Singapore this weekend you should definitely drop by the Bras Basah area to check out the Night Festival 2012. There are various performances lined up, free admission to all museum exhibitions and light projections on the museums’ facades that add lots of colour to the area.
Audrey T visited the National Museum last weekend when the festival opened, and loved the ‘ Great Singapore Souvenirs’ exhibit. “This quirky collection reinterprets the things about Singapore that we’ve grown up with (like Singlish, hawker centers, the once-ubiquitous Good Morning brand towels and old-school Chinese calendars) into contemporary merchandise like totes and lunch boxes. They can be purchased at the museum store, aptly sharing the same acronym as the ‘Great Singapore Sales’. What a great way to showcase Singapore’s unique heritage, culture, identity and lifestyle.”
The Night Festival will be on 31 August and 1 September from 7pm to 2am. More information and programme details at the Night Festival website.
