Evolution of Games – Making Of

Monday, August 15th, 2011


awesome!
“This making of the “Evolution of Games” is an impressive, coordinated and directed masterpiece, and proof that not everything is done inside of a computer.
It’s fun to see the piece come to life while watching the finished piece in the same window. Hooray for handiwork. ”

Sacha Goldberger: Jogging Series

Tuesday, July 26th, 2011


Awesome Series. What Runners look before and after!

“Last summer, Sacha Goldberger decided he would take on a very interesting project. He assembled a team who helped him create an outdoor studio at Bois de Boulogne, a park located near Paris that’s 2 1/2 times the size of New York’s Central Park. He stopped joggers, asking them for a favor – would they sprint for him and then pose right after for his camera? Many obliged. Out of breath, these joggers showed an overwhelming amount of fatigue on their faces.

Goldberger then asked these same people to come into his professional studio exactly one week later. Using the same light, he asked them to pose the same way they had before.

“I wanted to show the difference between our natural and brute side versus how we represent ourselves to society,” Goldberger tells us. “The difference was very surprising.”

Clone Factory

Tuesday, July 26th, 2011




Wow, this is bizzarre, cool, and ever so slightly creepy! A shop in Akihabara called Clone Factory will scan you face, produce a very realistic 3D-print of your head, then attach it to a 20 inch doll of your choice! The creepy part is how real the head looks compared to how doll like the bodies are. For an in-depth pictorial documentation in the process, look at our ever so loving dancing Storm Trooper Danny Choo’s documentation here!
