I’m a little late to the table with this, but while planning the High Tide Fashion Show/Fundraiser I’ve been looking up new music by old (subjective term) favourites, like Montreal’s CFCF. Upon hearing the Exercise EP, track 3 kept standing out and I’m sure it’s because I’ve seen the video before. I’m digging The Giver vibe here.

I also came across this fan version below:

I don’t know about it being sped up, but I feel like the cityscape’s lend themselves well to the song. Would love to see a mix between the official video, and aerial/helicopter shots of these huge cities, all in black and white.

Talented Illustration designer Jasper Goodall made this short film about Sanna Annukka and her new autumn/winter collection for Marimekko called Pohjolassa. I’m a huge fan of patterns and have always enjoyed symmetry but lately have been pushing myself in Illustrator. As far as the Adobe suite goes, Illustrator still isn’t my strongest and I’ve learned a lot in 2012 with it.

I’m currently working with a client on her brand refresh and going over bag designs these last couple weeks, been a great experiment in pattern making. I’d love a chance to make wallpaper or textiles like these down the road.

Incredible time lapse videos shot by Dustin Farrell. I’ve lost count of how many time lapse videos I’ve posted, and I’m okay with that. Here are the first two videos of his intended trilogy.

You can read more about the making of these videos here.

“If people say it’s impossible we have to prove them wrong.”

Design students Anna and Terese took on a giant challenge as an exam project. Something no one had done before. If they could swing it, it would for sure be revolutionary. The bicycle is a tool to change the world. If we use bikes AND travel safe: Life will be better for all.

Modified Turntable Reads Tree-Rings as Music

A tree’s year rings are analysed for their strength, thickness and rate of growth. This data serves as basis for a generative process that outputs piano music. It is mapped to a scale which is again defined by the overall appearance of the wood (ranging from dark to light and from strong texture to light texture). The foundation for the music is certainly found in the defined ruleset of programming and hardware setup, but the data acquired from every tree interprets this ruleset very differently.

Aurora Timelapse from Michigan

The Aurora Borealis as seen east of Martin, Michigan on October 24 2011. The timelapse spans 2h 20m from just after dusk to around 10:30 pm EDT.

The YouTube video also come with tech details, which is something I like to nerd out about: ~280 15MP images taken with a Canon T1i. Tokina 11-16mm f2.8 set @11mm f4.0 ISO 400. 25 second exposures every 30 seconds.

Taken from Wikipedia: Auroras result from emissions of photons in the Earth’s upper atmosphere, above 80 km (50 mi), from ionized nitrogen atoms regaining an electron, and oxygen and nitrogen atoms returning from an excited state to ground state. They are ionized or excited by the collision of solar wind and magnetospheric particles being funneled down and accelerated along the Earth’s magnetic field lines; excitation energy is lost by the emission of a photon of light, or by collision with another atom or molecule:

oxygen emissions
Green or brownish-red, depending on the amount of energy absorbed.

nitrogen emissions
Blue or red. Blue if the atom regains an electron after it has been ionized. Red if returning to ground state from an excited state.

The Beardcap

This is the Beardcap. It is what it looks like in that you have a cap, attached to a beard. I read that it refers to the traditional “lambshed-hood” used by Icelandic farmers walking long distances in below freezing temperatures through heavy snow-storms. Designed by Vík Prjónsdóttir in 2005, this cap is made with 100% Icelandic wool and is available in five different colours. For the facial-hair-challenged among you don’t worry, you can get one too.

Photography by Gulli Már.

Outliers, Vol. I: Iceland

Internationally renowned photographers Tim Navis + Kim Høltermand have started a new project with film collective Scenic Studio and composer Deru. They’ll set out on a journey to explore the remote and beautiful countryside of Iceland to document their experiences with the landscape, residents and traditions. The end result, a beautifully packaged box set of the film and companion soundtrack, will be released to backers of the project as a physical artifact of the unique and awe-inspiring experience.

Tim + Kim will film at various locations throughout the island, inspired by moments of discovery and chance occurrence.. Scenic will edit the series into short films, featuring an original score by Deru and a full-length soundtrack (the first single is available now) featuring contributions from select musicians and contemporary composers.
