You know what they say about YouTube comments. Always read them. One went, ‘Never watch at this after 00.00 It was fuckin´horrible’. We clearly didn’t heed that and merrily skipped ahead to watch a Japanese bloke covered in goop stare at us as he ate ice cream off the top of his head. Another said, […]
Ogilvy Thailand recently created a television commercial for Thai Health Promotion Foundation featuring cig-waving kids who try to get a light from street smokers, and then ask a really obvious question when they are rebuked. While you’ll get the obvious moral of the story, the not-so-obvious one here is: kids can get away with anything.
My brother just got back from Tignes having done his second ski season. This isn’t a bad effort at transmitting just how much fun he and his friends have had for the last six months. The tricks that these amateur boarders pull are out of this world. Enjoy the soundtrack and watch fullscreen.
I spent a year hitchhiking around the USA, and despite my Nana thinking I was going to get murdered and diced into tiny pieces, I actually had an amazing time. This 162 second video is a photo documentation of the last three months of my trip, when I hitchhiked from the Pacific to the Atlantic […]
Rebecca Brown has taken 1461 consecutive photos of herself in a remarkable video that shows the subtle ageing of a 14-18 year old girl. But there is more to the story. ‘Beckie0′ battles depression, and as the images unfold, we see her fight against Dermotillomania and Trichotillomania, two mental disorders which take a very visual […]
Bored of the too-easy point/click way we find new music, I decided to make my own songs harder and more interesting to get hold of. I spent a year hiding CDs with my music on in cities around the world (with a little help from friends). I filmed the whole thing, including the responses I […]
The Last Myself is a project about the tautology of watching one’s own reflection in the mirror while saying one’s own name. It’s an exploration how your identity reveals itself through the echo of repetition. You are invited to repeat your name in front of the mirror while recording yourself with the camera, staying open to the revelations that will follow.
Tête à Tête is a combination of film, photography and stop motion in the guise of three short storylines and a series of portraits around a contemporary topic. It’s all the work of SOETr (aka Axel de Wilde), a freelance designer from the Netherlands.
Cinnamon Chasers is a techno music project started by Russ David in 2008. This London-born musician recently released his new album called Science, and it is definitely something that could work as my life soundtrack.
Holiday for Strings is a 5 piece band featuring John from Peter, Bjorn and John, and Pony from Thieves Like Us. The fabulously named Swedish-group is back with an awesome new single and video.
John Cho Moore grew tired of the limitations of the industrial design process and is now trying to capture the essence of design with his beautifully handmade bamboo and canvas bags.
Dråpe (which is Norwegian for ‘water droplet’) are one of my favorite bands. Their sound is creative, chilled, and laidback. I’m sure that they’re going to hit it big it Norway this year.
