Chavs, suburbian girls, electrotrash ... different names for the confromist consumerist culture of the youth market. I love that Bigas Luna is taking a look to this whole generation, specially making sex (Bigas Fav.) is a crucial element of it. SOURCE
The interactive design work of french studio Incandescence is really beautiful. My favorite piece is this showcase for Issey Miyaki men's collection. They are in charge of creating a whole new experience for the fashion house each collection.
Flawless linear interactive design. It is worth mentioning that they have also included music design in the experience. click on the images to experience.
Psst! Pass it on... is a series of short animated films created in collaboration by a select group of motion graphics artists from New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and Berlin. Inspired by the Surrealist game of Exquisite Corpse and the children's game of Telephone, the minute-long films consist of three sections by three different design teams. The artists worked sequentially, linking up their animations to create a single piece over the course of about 9 weeks. The films feature a variety of styles and methods of production including live-action, stop-motion, 3d & 2d animation.
Eatock was an intern at the Walker Museum in Minneapolis,now he attends the design lecture series as lecturer. This video is a conference he gave this month at the Walker. The long intro is even funny in its absurd length...but is worthwhile.

The fate of "cuddly Knut" has gripped the German capital since his birth in December. Rejected by his mother Tosca, the cub was adopted by a zookeeper who moved into the animal's enclosure to care for him round the clock.
Some animal rights campaigners think this will humanize the bear too much and want the zoo to stop saving young animals.
"Hand-rearing a polar bear is not appropriate and is a serious violation of animal rights," Bild newspaper quoted animal rights campaigner Frank Albrecht as saying.
"In fact, the cub should have been killed," he added."
I don't understand animal rights' activists that actually think death is solution for the safekeeping the rights of an animal...Like life is below law. That is called orthodoxy. Too narrow and to stupid logic. In my opinion orthodoxy is just for the weak of thought.
The whole decadent junkie is sooooo old...why do people still buy into that? And VOGUE doing this seems total lack on sophisticated direction...punk: I don't think so. Against what? Kate Moss was exposed in her drug abuse and it seemed that nothing AT ALL happened to her. Maybe if you look good nothing really maters. Fiction at its most.
So why are still drugs illegal?
Jan Jaap Ruijssenaars took inspiration for the bed — a sleek black platform, which took six years to develop and can double as a dining table or a plinth — from the mysterious monolith in Stanley Kubrick’s 1968 cult film “2001: A Space Odyssey.”
“No matter where you live all architecture is dictated by gravity. I wondered whether you could make an object, a building or a piece of furniture where this is not the case — where another power actually dictates the image,” Ruijssenaars said.
Magnets built into the floor and into the bed itself repel each other, pushing the bed up into the air. Thin steel cables tether the bed in place.
“It is not comfortable at the moment,” admits Ruijssenaars, adding it needs cushions and bedclothes before use.
Although people with piercings should have no problem sleeping on the bed, Ruijssenaars advises them against entering the magnetic field between the bed and the floor.
