This video is one of the craziest and weirdest I’ve seen in a while. There are so many different scenes where the viewer is left with questions. Though, after I’ve watched it a couple of times, some things do make sense. The tune is superbe, no-nonsense and catchy. Figure the meaning of this video out for yourself, really can’t help you with this one. If you’re allergic to titties, don’t watch.
The Salt Institute and Grey San Francisco + Gentleman Scholar demonstrate how salt makes everything better in this beautifully crafted spot. Everything from roads to roasts can use a dab of it.
Shot high above the street of New York City, Up There reveals the dying craft of large-scale hand painted advertising and the untold story of the painters struggling to keep it alive.
Capturing a trade that is equal parts artistic precision and grueling labor, the film presents a painting tradition pre-dating modern advertising. A craft that today finds itself dangling precariously on the brink of extinction.
Humanae is a chromatic inventory, a project that reflects on the colors beyond the borders of our codes by referencing the PANTONE® color scheme. PANTONE® Guides are one of the main classification systems of colors, which are represented by an alphanumeric code, allowing to accurately recreate any of them in any media. It is a technical industrial standard often called Real Color.
The project development is based on a series of portraits whose background is dyed with the exact Pantone® tone extracted from a sample of 11x11 pixels of the portrayed’s face. The project’s objective is to record and catalog all possible human skin tones. On the Tumblr page it states: "Work in progress". I guess it will take a while to finish this project.
TV is Evolving. Yes, the screens are getting thinner, but the real evolution is the content. Beautifully thin flat screens with streaming internet are making television increasingly personal. The challenge of having all this content to choose from is how to harness it. You need a remote for the TV, a keyboard and mouse for the internet, and a controller for gaming. Toggle delivers a touch experience without a touch screen. Points on the remote’s surface are mapped to specific keys and functions. But here’s the twist.
There is a quietness to the Eternal Moments photo series that is made slightly eerie do to the use of animation. Another example of the growing popularity of animated photography, this series is beautifully contemplative. It really captures the idea of an ‘eternal moment.’
Urban exploration is a project from Jared Lim form Singapore. He looks for patterns in architecture while travelling. Lim has a fantastic eye for architecture and beyond. The photos tend to look fake because of the extraordinary perfection. But if you look close enough, there are wrinkles in every pattern. Have a look at more of his work on his website.
Russ Chimes releases his newest song 'Turn Me Out' along with a visual jewel. The bright colours, random images and clever editing give it a smart edge. Director's duo Mathy and Fran delivered just the right video for this song.
Vincent Fournier’s Space Project constructs a new reality in the fantasy of space exploration. Over the past decade and a half, Fournier has captured a wide array of space organizations from around the world. Through the seamless compilation of photographed space, he has created an identity of the space traveler that is simply human. His artist statement reads, “The project came from the experience that we all have whilst looking at the stars during our childhood, when we suddenly realise the infinity of the universe and that we are but a tiny part of it.”
Director Mischa Rozema returns with another trademark visually unique mixed media film, combining live action with 2d/3d animation, motion graphics, stock footage and visual effects. BSUR approached PostPanic to help them create an extra special product launch film to match the distinctive new MINI Rocketman concept. Most staggering is that the whole production took just 4 weeks from start to finish, including two studio shoots in Amsterdam and Munich.
