Nike Music Shoe

of freaking course. also, i think the accelerometer needs a round of applause as the decade's biggest little sensor, or perhaps right after the touch screen?

Nike Music Shoe is an awesome ad for the Nike Free Run+ shoe. In the video you can see Hifana doing a live performance by using the shoes as controllers. By bending the flexible sole of the Nike Free Run+, they can control different sounds. I'm actually pretty sure that it is real because I think that I spotted Daito Manabe in the video. And we all know what he's capable of. I guess they've used some flexible sensors and hooked them up to MaxMSP. Great work!

Indeed the shoes used in the video are the real sound controllers. Tomoaki Yanagisawa of 4nchor5 la6 was responsible for the hardware part. He added flexible and accelerometer sensors to the shoes. Daito Manabe of rhizomatiks did the sound programming with Max.
They were both commissioned by Wieden + Kennedy Tokyo for this project.

Objects Falling

Gravité from Renaud Hallée on Vimeo.

“Gravite” (Gravity) is film directed and produced by Renaud Hallee. The video shows objects falling from the air to ground such as sports balls, televisions, scissors, and more. As each item hits the ground, it demonstrates the effects of gravity and also creates rhythmic sounds. It is such a brilliant idea!

Los pixeles invaden Nueva York

sort of a fun idea... with an existential crisis of an ending

pixeles nueva york

Un pequeño ejército de 8 bits comandado por Kig Kong, Pacman, piezas de Teris y Space invaders atacan la ciudad de Nueva York pixeleando y coloreando todo lo que se encuentren al alcance. Esta gran animación fue creada por Patrick Jean, del estudio One More Production.
Supongo que la mayoría de ustedes ya habrán visto el video, pero para aquellos que no lo han hecho aún, se las recomiendo bastante!

life & death

This made me think of the life & death project. and its just pretty much awesome.

Vegetation and microorganisms live symbiotically inside the body of this robot. The robot draws water from a contaminated river, decomposes its elements, helps to create energy to feed its brain circuits and the surplus is then used to create life, enabling plants to fulfill their own life cycle.

Who cares?

I wish I saw this before mr. boadwee came.
It's a good, short, post about what questions you should ask yourself/ be prepared to answer before portfolio reviews/showing someone your work.
they're things we should be thinking about,
and it's short,
read it.

Jesus was a woman

 least he would have been in this Jerusalem.
was linked to Tanya Habjouqa's site for her women of gaza series
which is also great,
but found that she also has a series called "Jerusalem in Heels: Transsexuals of the Holy Land"
Some of the images in it are a little grainy, but I am so glad they exist.

roads to home

"Roads to home" will be on display for the month of April at the Black Drop Coffee House at 300 W Champion St. in downtown Bellingham. No reception, but if you'd like to go down for coffee with me sometime this month and tell me I'm fabulous, that'll be just as good. All color photos, all month long!

what he wants is to talk to Gilles Larrain.

Logorama from Marc Altshuler - Human Music on Vimeo.

The film was directed by the French animation collective H5, François Alaux, Hervé de Crécy + Ludovic Houplain. It was presented at the Cannes Film Festival 2009. It opened the 2010 Sundance Film Festival and won a 2010 academy award under the category of animated short.

captions are cool

some captions are stupid
some captions are great
most of these fall into the later category

"Homeschooling seemed preferable to spending 193 days rolling her eyes at the snot-nosed kids down the block, waiting for summer, but her parents’ idea of “integrated learning” was far more depressing."
