What I Did Last Summer -> My Daily Photos

summer_vaca

I know, it’s only August 5th. I’m not trying to rush us through the season, I haven’t posted in a long while and I thought it would be nice to celebrate the magnificent weather we’ve been having up here in the PAC NW. After all, it’s what has been keeping me from posting. For now there’s too much to do outside. Many more photos beyond the links below.

“Noise” -> Kijek / Adamski

“Noise” from Kijek / Adamski on Vimeo.

Notes from Vimeo:

“Film inspired by the theoretic work of George Berkeley and basics of synesthetic perception. It’s a game of imagination provoked by sound. Individual sounds penetrating into the apartment of the main character relieved of their visual designates evoke images distant from its origins.”

Pacific Northwest -> Bokeh Pictures

pac_nw

This is a two part post really. One part, to make note of the fantastic photo narrative service that is exposure.so, and the other to highlight Bokeh and their Pacific Northwest collection. The photo narrative is such simple and powerful way to tell stories. The exposure templates offer a range of sizing and layout that allows flexibility and keeps the page flow feeling fresh. A great platform for artists and marketers alike.

Labics -> Architecture

labics

If you are at all interested in modern architecture trends, then I would suggest clicking around Labics Architecture’s site (based in Rome). Not only are their final designs crisp and clean, their conceptual models and renderings are a work of art as well.

Yule Log 2.0 -> Artist Project

yule_log

Notes from site: “Yule Log 2.0 re-imagines the traditional Yule Log through a collection of short films by illustrators, animators, directors, and creative coders. First televised in 1966 by WPIX-TV as a gift to viewers, the Log has since burned itself into our hearts.”

inFORM -> Dynamic Shape Display

inFORM – Interacting With a Dynamic Shape Display from Tangible Media Group on Vimeo.

This amazing new technology coming from MIT’s Tangible Media Group allows users to literally reach through the screen and interact with physical objects.

Notes from Vimeo page:

“inFORM is a Dynamic Shape Display that can render 3D content physically, so users can interact with digital information in a tangible way. inFORM can also interact with the physical world around it, for example moving objects on the table’s surface. Remote participants in a video conference can be displayed physically, allowing for a strong sense of presence and the ability to interact physically at a distance.”

The Paper Kites -> Young

The Paper Kites: Young from Oh Yeah Wow on Vimeo.

They say you can help prevent the oncoming of seasickness by keeping your eyes glued to the horizon. I found myself using a similar method while watching this video by the Paper Kites, and tried to maintain focus on the nose area. It’s a bit dizzying, but beautiful all the same. 7 days to shoot 350+ faces, 10 days to assemble 4000+ photos. Great track as well.

Drone’s eye view of Burning Man 2013 from ekai on Vimeo.

Photographer Nick Frank has a special technique and style that I really admire. His Hong Kong cityscapes are a fascinating blend of urban mass and natural landscape that somehow meld calmly together. Many more amazing images beyond the link.
