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.

The Fun Theory

October 15th, 2009

This site is dedicated to the thought that something as simple as fun is the easiest way to change people’s behaviour for the better. Be it for yourself, for the environment, or something entirely different, the only thing that matters is that it’s change for the better.

Piano Staircase
”Take the stairs instead of the escalator or elevator and feel better” is something we often hear or read in the Sunday papers. Few people actually follow that advice. Can we get more people to take the stairs over the escalator by making it fun to do? See the results here.

World’s Deepest Bin
To throw rubbish in the bin instead of onto the floor shouldn’t really be so hard. Many people still fail to do so. Can we get more people to throw rubbish into the bin, rather than onto the ground, by making it fun to do? See the results here.


Hand from Above

October 15th, 2009

Hand from Above from Chris O’Shea on Vimeo.

Hand From Above encourages us to question our normal routine when we often find ourselves rushing from one destination to another. Inspired by Land of the Giants and Goliath, we are reminded of mythical stories by mischievously unleashing a giant hand from the BBC Big Screen. Passers by will be playfully transformed. What if humans weren’t on top of the food chain?

Unsuspecting pedestrians will be tickled, stretched, flicked or removed entirely in real-time by a giant deity.


Candy Chang: I’ve lived

July 23rd, 2009
It’s a question every New Yorker wonders – how much are my neighbors paying for their apartments? I’ve Lived: Post-it Notes for Neighbors is an interactive installation that helps demystify the topic by inviting local residents and other passers-by to share information about their living situation. Inspired by Illegal Art’s “To Do” installation, this participatory project covers a storefront window with Post-it notes stamped with specific fill-in-the-blank forms. Passers-by can fill in a note with their own apartment information and balk at the high and low numbers paid by others. By the end of the week, the window will have transformed into a useful collection of personal notes created by and relevant to the community, as well as serve as a reflection of changing real estate values.

I’ve Lived: Post-it Notes for Neighbors was part of the Windows Brooklyn exhibit that paired artists with storefront windows in Cobble Hill and Carroll Gardens June 14-22, 2008. Candy’s storefront: vintage furniture shop Yesterday’s News at 428 Court Street and 2nd Place (which happens to be right around the corner from where she used to live). They sell classy old-school furniture, maps, and other cool items. Check it out and say hi to owner JP! Installation assistance by Kay Cheng.
