First Music Video

This is probably the first music video ever. Before youtube. Before MTV. Before color, too: Len Lye’s 1958 ‘Free Radicals’


Few things are as hard to describe as happiness, an emotion defined more by the objects and events that elicit it. Perdiz magazie tasks itself with collecting these highly rarified  moments with hopes of distilling and imparting happiness to its readers. Different components of the emotion–love, hopes, creativity, pleasure–form the content, and the candy-colored graphic design [...]


Contemporary painting, predominantly quiet landscapes that seem more like mindscapes. Suet Yi Chan has exhibited internationally and is continuously showing at galleries in Berlin where she currently resides. At the time, Suet or Snowy as she also calls herself, is working on new artworks for the upcoming year. Until then, rest your eyes on these.


In his Metamorphosis series, Frederic Fontenoy seemingly pushes the visual logic of McGinley’s naked romps to the extreme.

Director Lisa Paclet’s résumé includes Chanel, Dior, Kenzo, Y.S.L., so it’s not surprising that the film is all high style. Each shot is immaculately designed, from the crisp sporty outfits [...]

Turing Text

Show me your handwriting, and I tell you who you are. Seems like robots are picking up individual handwriting now. Could this be the next Turing Test? Austin based startup Maillift is taking marketing spam to a whole new level. Seamless Salesforce integration, of course.
Some hints on how to tell humans and machines apart.


Just  something that I‘ve missed from the year 2011 and crossed my way shortly ago when I was scanning the internet for envelopes as a part of exhibition concepts or artwork: Works of paper by Kouzaki Hiromu, a japanese carpenter who at the age of 80 began to make envelopes from all sorts of paper [...]
