Commoncraft has done it again (i embed several of their explanation videos in the past). Their style of explanation is phenomenally simple and yet effective. As simple and effective as generating clones like this TV ad.
Update from the project website that this is a fictional project. I don’t feel cheated because i still think this is brilliant idea and hopefully somebody can make the project happen. Congrats to Erik Nordenankar that has successfully create the buzz.
Produced by Sidetrack Films, Beautiful Losers is an intimate and moving assessment of underappreciated yet wildly influential outcasts such as Shepard Fairey, Margaret Kilgallen, Mike Mills, Barry McGee, Jo Jackson, Chris Johanson, Harmony Korine, Stephen Powers, Geoff McFetridge, Thomas Campbell and Ed Templeton. Informed by their individual experiences and the generation’s “Do It Yourself” culture, these artists left an indelible mark on the worlds of fashion, music, literature, film and ironically, sports. The story of Beautiful Losers is a retrospective celebration of their contribution to artistic independence.
I was simply surprised to see George Orwell’s 1984 released and translated into Indonesian but i had no doubt to buy and read it. I guess it was released in mid 2003 or so here in Indo. The cover is bad compare to original English version and even worse compare to the redesign done by artist Shepard Fairey a.k.a. Obey.
I am not more than another Obey Giant’s a.k.a. Shepard Fairey t’shirt collector (by far i have 7 of them) among other cool brands, but to evangelist his work is always fun. This time, Obey come up with this fine print art products which is so very cool. The print art available in 3 colors and my favorite is this one below. Why? Because i found the color scheme is so Obey if you know what i’m saying. The freaking cool version of the print is the Red one, because it includes 3D glasses.
Met some mathematicians back at university but none of them have tattoos. Most people i know have tattoos, but somehow, noone has cooler ink than this (sorry my friends… :-D).
My ISP has yet to block YouTube which must be the stupidest act that an ISP can do. So i would like to take this opportunity to post another cool video uploaded at YouTube.
The video explain what is art from animal perspective. Art?
This video below is 3D animation of a project in Dubai in which every single one of the 68 stories skyscraper is designed to rotate once per 90 minutes.
Shepard Fairey, the artist behind Obey project, did an excellent interview down at Creativity Online as regards of his endorsement to Barrack Obama. It’s not that i am turning to political savvy, eventhough somehow someway someday i should, but it’s just cool to see influential and brilliant artist like Shepard Fairey care about the future of his country.
