Things aren't always as they seem

Who does this cat remind you of?
It is part of a new political campaign in Germany.

I love these kinds of mistakes


I wanted to enter Gmail.com the other day, and thanks to a typo I found this great design blog.



Enjoy!

The sweetness after - Winter semester 2008

The brief for this epilogue to the semester was:

"...Prepare a gift for your designated buddy - the format is free.

The present is a personal gift - something you would like to be remembered for or something that symbolises your buddy to you..."

Here is what you came up with:

Psookim- It's yours to share

Here's an interesting opportunity:

Psookim is a website for today’s young artists to share the creativity the Hebrew Bible has inspired in them, to showcase their work, and to enable the larger community to find inspiration in these works and the ever-living stories of old.

Why not contact them and see what happens?
I know I did : )

NONOBJECT Design Fiction : Behind the Scenes Camera

The NONOBJECT Book is the first of its kind - the first of a genre called Design Fiction.

"...In the same way that sci-fi movies and fictional tales stretch your imagination, our hope is to take you on a journey into the future of design and inspiration. We will share stories and concepts that offer a new point of view, a new way of thinking, a new way forward. Of course, as with all fiction, some of our ideas may seem improbable – even impossible. Don’t worry, we bought the tickets. All you have to do is enjoy the ride..."

Facebook group: Digital Art: "Digital Art is any art created on a computer or otherwise, non-trivially modified by a computing process. Certain instances of digital-art are entirely computer-generated - Fractals are a prime example of this type of digital art."

Exercise 12 – "In His Image"


God created us “in his image” but never explained what this means. It has always been our responsibility to give it an interpretation, worthy of his trust. Like every loving father he left it up to us…
The next few lessons will be dedicated to the final act of creation and our last exercise this semester.
The exercise is an exploration of our self, our image, our persona. The meaning of
בצלמו ובדמותו

____________________________________________________________________________________________

Presentation 1 - Poster –Thursday 3.1.08
Think about yourself - Who are you? What makes you - you? Why? Where are you? How did you get here? Why did you come? Where are you from? Was it your natural environment or just your place of origin? Are you aware? Are you awake?

As always the key to finding the answers to these questions is through a research of your surroundings. Pair up with a friend and reflect upon the questions listed above. You will discover that your taste in music, food, clothes, literature, cinema, art, etc. are a key to who you are.
ספר לי מי הם חבריך ואומר לך מי אתה is a truism as old as man…

Create a poster (100*70cm, free technique) of the conclusions of your research and who you are.

Presentation 2 – 3D body object–Thursday 10.1.08
Based upon your research you are required to create a body object reflecting who you are – an object that is in close contact with your body. The object is to be presented attached to you and you are to view yourself as part of your presentation.

Notes

1. God is in the details - Pay great attention to all the details of your project.

2. Reflect upon how your object and your body connect.
Remember that design is all about the connections between elements.

3. How are you going to present your object?
What will signify that you are an integral part of the presentation?

4. Are you free? Really free? How do you know? Can you show us?
