Great bits of tech scavenged from around the internet via BERG, Russell Davies, Its Nice That, and I can't remember where I found the projection mapping sand sculpture. (Fucking Wordpress is being weird I'm being stupid but I can't get videos to embed- you'll have to trust me and click the pics to check them out- sorry)
I'm not into this sort of stuff (twitter, facebook and raving on the whole web 8.2 or whatever we're on now), but this talk distills down the way it can be used for good (as opposed to facebook type evil).
First up a lovely music video which my new studio chum Clara showed me, for The Mariners Children. The animation style is simple and genuine and kind of innocent, I really like it and can't put my finger on why- I think maybe it's the music video equivalent of a zine or something. Next up is a video showing the Tom Sachs studio rules. Beautifully done, funny and also some pretty solid rules. A nice insight into the workings of a great studio.
I think maybe the best you could ever hope to be able to say about any kind of design is 'yeah- something there is right'. Project H in this video has got something right. It's what design strives to be I think.
Came across a brilliant set of videos from Offset which is a 3 day creative conference. These videos are from 2009- expect the 2010 one shortly. But the line up is brilliant and it's a great resource- all are good but I am a massive fan of the Oliver Jeffers, David Shrigley, Chip Kidd, Harry Pearce and Anthony Burrill talks. All excellent.
