Full screen walls

What if the whole room was a video-game screen? Thanks to a few projectors, kinects and the Microsoft IllumiRoom 2.0: RoomAlive project, it seems possible.

A therapy of the familiar #1: mentally turn noises into shapes

A therapy of the familiar #1: mentally turn noises into shapes

The name of this clip is Noise and it was created in tandem by Katarzyna Kijek & Przemysław Adamski (go say it three times as fast as you can!). I run into it after rediscovering the great work they made for a Shugo Tokumaru song.

Having to hear noises from neighbouring houses can make anyone go bananas. We were lucky, until we had a couple moving in with a cockatoo and a pair of dogs with awful hairstyles. From now on, I’ll make a mental effort to transform the icky cries from the feathered one and the hideous barking from the doggies into beautiful imaginary coloured shapes.

An illustrious illustrated diary

An illustrious illustrated diary

I have just gotten a present from Toni. It is a funny and graceful journal named El ilustre diario de Lucreativo, diseñador freelance & padre full time (Lucreativo’s illustrious diary. A full-time parent and freelance designer). It is sarcastic and genuine. I have loved it, even more after learning that we have helped this person to publish the book on his own. You can see us among the contributor!! Yippieeeeee! Congratulations Xarly!
So, here we go with the links to his on-line illustrious diary, his portfolio and his shop.
