New Frontiers @ Sundance 2010

February 1st, 2010

Just came back from Sundance, watched a bunch of great indie films but was so inspired to see the festival including a new direction: the intersection of film + art.

BURBERRY - Art Of The Trench

November 11th, 2009



Denizen is an online magazine dedicated to Third Culture Kids, also known as TCKs.

What is this about?

Third Culture Kids are the citizens of the future. We possess the globalized views and diverse experiences that are necessary in a ever-shrinking world. We will be the leaders of tomorrow, and will help others navigate this globalized society.

Unfortunately, we also struggle with identity, relationships, visas and careers in our unique TCK way. Denizen’s journalists and artists will help us muddle through these challenges by fostering a virtual TCK community.

TCKs are rarely citizens of the places they live. Instead, they are denizens, people who are “admitted rights to residence,” people who become inhabitants after “regularly frequenting a place.” We’re hoping that Denizen will become your online home, one that you’ll regularly frequent to share your unique TCK experience with others who simply “get it.”

Check it out!

Tuesday, July 1: Illegal Billboard Workshop with IllegalSigns.ca and The Anti-Advertising Agency. Presenter: Eyebeam senior fellow Steve Lambert.

Activists estimate that half the billboards in New York City are illegal. Worth millions in profit, outdoor advertising has become a corporate black market that doesn’t stop short of breaking the law to get your attention. On July 1, the Anti-Advertising Agency and Rami Tabello of IllegalSigns.ca will lead a free workshop on how to identify illegal advertising and get it taken down. Canadian activist group IllegalSigns.ca is responsible for the removal of more than over 100 illegal billboards in Toronto. Rami Tabello will reveal how the billboard industry gets away with breaking the law and will offer suggestions on what New Yorkers can do to stop it locally. To sign up, email: workshop AT antiadvertisingagency DOT com

Thursday, July 3: Eyebeam senior fellows Steve Lambert and Jeff Crouse will lead a workshop on A Basic Sentence Markup Language (ABSML)—an artist statement generator—and a new email spam-inspired project to Keep an Army Recruiter Busy.

* Shiftspace: an open source layer above any website. It seeks to expand the creative possibilities currently provided through the web, allowing for the creation of online contexts built in and on top of websites.

Hi all dear bloggers of “_dreams”

No this isn’t a post about some cool design work that i saw. This is a call for collaboration on a project that came to mind. In fact, that was the very reason why this blog was started at all; to act as a platform for collaborative works, a communicative portal of sorts. All that aside, here’s the idea for the project and if you’re interested in doing this together (even though i know you must be crazily busy with preparing for Survey and whatnot), please leave a comment on this post saying you’re in. So here goes:

 A short story will be picked, something familiar to most people, and different sections will be assigned to different people to be intepreted in whatever way they want (whether typographically or graphically or whatever; or in the tradition of Matt Rappo, the intepretation of no intepretation). The different interpretations, or ‘facets’ as i’d like to call it, will be pieced together on a book to form a continuous story. The workload would be roughly like maybe 10 black and white spreads of anything cool that you wanna come up with. This is not a class assignment, so you dont have to justify what you’re doing, as long as it’s cool and we sort of know it relates to the story. The Animatrix is a pretty good example of this idea, although it’s not exactly continuous. If we can get this done before survey, we can make enough copies for everyone and have something extra to show for our survey too, which can be nice. But if not, i’d be interested in doing this even after school ends, for fun and for the love of design/art.

So, anyone interested? It doesnt only have to be people from this blog, it can be other people too. Feel free to leave comments or suggestions or questions.
