Most of these images should just have the caption “Was he high?” James Franco’s Instagram account is honestly the most hideous account I’ve ever witnessed. Which is extremely surprising considering how gorgeous the guy is. I mean really, a screen shot of Justin Beiber with Microsoft Paint letters on top? He even leaves all the crop […]
Meet the queen of breakfast. I’ll admit to being a breakfast enthusiast. I never skip the chance to eat it. But Ida Frosk takes the early morning meal to a whole new level. The culinary creative from Norway re-creates famous pieces of art on her toast. Imagine eating Edvard Munch’s The Scream at 7am?
This DIY stained glass Instagram project is not for the faint of heart. And I don’t mean actually making it. I’m talking about showing off your photography to anyone who walks past your window. You have to be pretty confident in your photography skills. Someone told me that having a fantastic Instagram account is easy […]
As a kid, growing up on the K-Line in Stockholm, Sweden, it’s always been a dream to go to New York to put up tags. Even though some consider Philly to be the birthplace of this subculture, New York has always been its epicenter. When me and my friend started TagsAndThrows.com about half a year ago, we had no idea how big this thing would get. Today, we’ve got a couple of thousand visitors on the site every week and more than 10,800 followers on Instagram.
Have you ever wondered what would happen if Instagram had a love child with Google Street View? As ridiculous as that sounds, the guys from Social Media Information Lab, at the School of Communications and Information at Rutgers University, have recently completed a project called The Beat. It’s a website where you can see Instagram photos and what’s around them. It’s actually a pretty clever idea. They use Instagram photos users added to their map, and combine them with the corresponding Google Street View location to help explore topics in a new way.
It hurts my brain to think of the hours it must have taken Brazilian filmmaker Fernando Sanches to make an entire short film using only Instagram photos taken in Amsterdam, Berlin and Lisbon, but it certainly pleasures my eyes to watch the delightful two minute experiment. As its name suggests, Summer Eleven was filmed in […]
Kickstarter project Instacube — a digital canvas that basically runs on Android to display images pushed from, yes, your Instagram feed — hasn’t even ended its run on the crowdfunding site, but it’s already garnered more than double the $250,000 goal it asked for. With its $500,000 stretch goal met by supporters, the device will now display Facebook photos too. Which will only potentially make it easier for the nosey folks at home to snigger at all the compromising Facebook photos you’re tagged in while you’re out misbehaving in real time.
Instagram has finally met its match in a text clone: the Text-Only Instagram. It sounds exactly like its name, so instead of another generic artsy shot of a vintage bicycle or some random cafe, Text-Only Instagram distills the pictorial contents as sharp, wryly-observed tweets. No faster way for Instagram users to realise they’re no different […]
Rich Kids of Instagram is a snap shot into the world generation Teen Cribs. The blog is solely dedicated to collating the most indulgent and ostentatious of photos posted on Instagram by wealthy teenagers. Among what appears to be a whole lot of lounging around the swimming pools of mansions, there are snaps of private jets, obscene bills and arms stacked with Rolex, Cartier and Hermès.
If you spend too many hours on Instagram, like me, then this is the website for you. This is Now is an addictive little visualisation site that shows you a live snapshot of cities from around the world, by grabbing Instagram photos based on geo-location data and streaming them in real time. So if you’ve […]
French social activist, public artist and photographer, JR, has captured North Korea via Instagram. North Korean authorities strongly disapprove of picture taking in public, so this series of snaps is rather impressive, and makes an interesting use of the popular iPhone lens.
It had to happen sooner or later. Italian-based ADR Studio have created a prototype for the world’s first Instagram photo camera, armed with a duffle bag worth of features, including 16 GB mass storage; Wifi and Bluetooth; an Internal printer to make your Instagram photos real; and paper cartridge with Instagram Paper Sheets. Genius! Well, at least, we think so. They’re currently looking for Indiegogo funding to make it all happen on a far bigger scale.
Controversy may still be raging about Pinterest and copyright issues around the images people upload, but the growth of the site contirnues unabated. Italian designer Gennaro Varriale recently created Pingram, a Pinterest, Instagram mash-up in less than seven hours, enabling you to view Instagram photos in the same way you peruse the pins on Pinterest.
