This guy made this song using 90% sounds sampled directly from the film Alice in Wonderland. Amazing. Check out his other videos too.

This just had me doubled over and in tears for several minutes. Rarely have I witnessed infantile humour executed with such dedication and finesse.

Its all in the Re-Design

November 18, 2008

 

Interesting post on another site about the top 50 brand designs. Well worth a look. When you see how some logos end up infinitely better then the original you almost wonder what the designers were thinking in the first place!

The lives of elevators

November 7, 2008

 

 

I was reading an article from The New Yorker recently about the lives of elevators of all things. You may think that’s strange but it provided some mind boggling stats of how many elevator trips are made every day (eleven billion elevator trips a year in New York alone).

I still have a slight irrational fear of being trapped in a lift, after such an incident happened in the building where I used to work even though I was only in there for about 30mins, which still felt like a life time, but check out this video of the ordeal of a guy who was stuck in one for almost 40 hours…

Determining our visual field

November 5, 2008

This blog is intended as a place for us to share thoughts, ideas, plans and items of interest.

It is meant as an alternative means of sharing information with each other, without:

– having the information stored by a site which aims to profit from the content you create

– having to spam each other’s mail boxes

– being subjected to hoards of targeted advertising (WordPress does show some adverts, but if the idea catches on we can upgrade to get rid of these)

In other words, it’s simply about having a little more control over a space we can use to point to things of interest: a self-determined visual field  or selbst bestimmte Sichtfeld (thanks to the author of this article for that catchy title).

Please be aware, however, that this is also a public space, anyone can land here through a search or a link, none of the content is private.

The whole idea is that we all contribute. Create your own WordPress login, then send an email to ale8or@gmail.com stating the email address you used to sign up. You will then be made an ‘author’ and be able to create new posts.

If that sounds like too much hastle, use the username “visualfield” and the password “sichtfeld”, but remember to tell us who you are!

Make a post to tell us about:

– your projects

– something you’ve seen/read

– an upcoming or recent event

– anything you like

The following categories have been added already, please add more!

– music

– berlin

– languages (posts in other languages also welcome!)

– politics

– giggles

This post will be stuck to the front page for a while to explain what it’s all about.

Happy blogging x
