Malaventura -> Audiovisual sampler (in action)

Malaventura’s Audiovisual sampler (in action) from malaventura on Vimeo.
This piece was recorded live and made with Quartz Composer for Video & Ableton Live for the audio. I’ve had an interest in monome, tonematrix and tenori-on music tech devices for some time now and was pretty blown away when I saw this video. I think the […]

Corey Arnold -> Photography

This past week a friend of mine turned me on to the work of Portland based photographer and Alaskan commercial fisherman and skateboarder Corey Arnold. With so many of us out there ‘life documenting’ and ‘life tracking’ these days it’s really refreshing to come across someone who not only has a great talent and passion […]

Real Time/Anolog Digital Clock -> Maarten Baas

If you find it difficult to take your eyes away from the clock normally, then you may not want to view this memorizing animation by designer Maarten Baas. Each digital number graphic is updated “manually” by a very small figure who seemingly exists within the clock itself. Very fun, worth a view.

Step Into the Sensory Box -> ENVISION

ENVISION : Step into the sensory box from SUPERBIEN on Vimeo.
The above masterpiece was created by ‘SuperBien’ (Alex Mestrot and Tom Chosson) based in Paris, France. The mapping itself is beautifully accurate and creative, the colors are fresh… but the animation FX are to me, what is most mind-blowing. Great particle animation and sound design […]

'So Far Seattle' -> Photo Book Concept

It’s been almost 6 months since I moved to Seattle, I’ve taken a lot of pictures of this amazing city so far. Two weeks ago I realized that I had almost 100 Seattle photos up on Flickr already, so I decided to test print an 84 page photo book to see how it would come […]

Photography + Site Design -> Jean Malek

I came across this excellent flash based photography portfolio site of Jean Malek’s on theFWA.com yesterday. I must have missed it because it was posted a while ago and I frequent the FWA as a source for interactive design trends. Regardless, I love the motion design and full bleed/full screen experience on this site, not […]

Artist -> Jeremy Geddesart

Jeremy Geddesart effortlessly spans the boundaries of reality with his works. His ability to render figures, light and color, is extraordinarily accurate, an then, he administers his own fantasies into the mix. Odd combination’s of lost astronauts and suicidal businessmen with fates unknown and unexplained tend to appear in many of his surreal images, leaving […]
