sugar: public enemy number 1 — June 21, 2016

sugar: public enemy number 1

this revealing doco demystifies the not so sweet truth about sugar. On top of its obvious effects like tooth decay, obesity and diabetes, there are plenty of other side effects and manufacturers seem to be oblivious of any social responsibility. Take a look. An hour’s investment of your time could be mind (and mouth) altering!

virtually out of this world

Figment makes the unimaginable real. The coolest mobile accessory is here now. Well, soon, if we kickstart it. Take Figment everywhere you go. It’s pocket-sized so you can bring it anywhere, and because it’s in a phone case, you will actually bring it everywhere.

night time city safari — November 29, 2015

night time city safari

SAFARI URBAIN is the name of this series of photographs representing animal portrait makeovers projected on facades and buildings of the French capital. The artist, Julien Nonnon, invites you to wander at night in the city. In September, passersby of picturesque buildings in Paris encountered this ‘urban safari’. Images of smartly-dressed wildlife temporarily illuminated the city’s structures and surfaces at night. The series of short-lived souvenirs included ‘hip’ animals donning unusual outfits, like a cheetah clothed in a bomber jacket or a very dapper eagle sporting a suit and tie. Each of the figures was named after the streets they inhabited, which included the flannel-wearing ‘Lemur of Montmartre’ and smoking ‘Shepherd of Clignancourt.’ I particularly loved ‘the Koala of Lowendal’ with the Eiffel in the distance. The images also recently featured in Orlando…

I think this kind of imagery would fit in beautifully around Brisbane’s cityscape. The alleys of Fortitude Valley, Southbank, the cliffs of Kangaroo Point. Got any ideas? #BigBrightBrisbane
Actually, the whole concept is remarkably similar to the campaign that is current for Queenslad Tourism; animal portraits.

Similat to Chevalier’s creation of ‘digital arabesques 2015′, this generative and interactive installation is also influenced by moroccan culture. See you on the dance floor!

jungle book, brisbane story?

Visual artist Julien NONNON curates some suave installations. They are graffiti-esque in that they cover beautiful architectural buildings, yet their presence is fleeting. They are only visible for the night of the projection or when seen in the captured photographic prints. The process allows him to combine street art, kinetic installations, digital creations and video-mapping. Showing the desire to see his works in the street, he developed his own tools allowing him therefore to project his creations in any location that inspires him. I’ve included below here one of his urban safari series videos which were projected around the Parisian cityscape at night. I reckon the story Bridge might be just the sort of bridge you might like to meet one of those cool cats or maybe just an oversized frilly lizard.

socia-tability – projecting in technicolour

Another of Miguel Chevalier’s mesmerising artworks. Previously I have been amazed by his light installations which respond to movement under the viewer’s step. In these new touchy feely table-tops, the same concept is adapted to morph and react to imagery at a height where hands can get lost exploring slippery, undulating pixels. It’s kinda like op art-meets surrealism-meets renaissance-but very now. Just wonder where I get a swimming pool like this? Or am I dreaming in technicolour?

bright brisbane bridges — November 26, 2015

bright brisbane bridges

The Story Bridge is the landmark bridge of Brisbane but the Kurilpa is by far my favourite. One day, I’d love for Brisbane to have even more iconic bridges . Our city is already considered by some as the river city and I think their presence helps shape brisbanites as outdoorsy individuals who enjoy exploring their big, bright, open spaces. The CityCats and river edge walkways really help create these experiences. Contrasting angles, lines and perspectives create kinetic energy to the bridges. Although they are mostly fairly symmetrical, some of the newer bridge designs (like the Kurilpa, the Eleanor Schonelle, the Goodwill and the Go Between bridges) break away from these traditional designs and experiment with some fun and progressive visual thinking. The reflections on the water below create a sort of magical energy. It could be cool (or a little bit refreshing) to project some iceskaters onto the river surface. Maybe on a hot January evening to bring on a little emotional air conditioning.Iceskaters_Photography_byJayson Vucovic

adobe edge: top of the charts — November 25, 2015

adobe edge: top of the charts

We had a class on creating animated charts using excel and (ta da) adobe edge. Although i’m really keen to get the hang of these two programs, it’ll take me a bit of practice yet. Sorry Liam. I also think Tableau Public has lots to offer. Anyway, so often the representation of boring figures can come across as being just that. The reality is, they have the potential to be a little bit more engaging. I found this clever little eg…
