Kris Hofmann - A Christmas Card from Austria

Dark Knight Rises




New Batman 3 IMAX version movie trailer released online. Recently a fan dropped this new IMAX version of the 2nd movie trailer (below) for the "Dark Knight Rises" flick. The fan,apparently,recorded it,while in the IMAX theater. It obviously isn't as good as actually being in the IMAX theater itself,but it kind of gives an idea of what it's like to watch it in IMAX. The trailer looks awesome,and features scenes with the naughty Selina Kyle aka Catwoman,along with Bruce Wayne aka Batman, Bane,Alfred,and more. It shows the crazy football scene as the field totally caves in while a guy is running for a touchdown. That definitely must have freaked him out. The movie stars: Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman, Tom Hardy, Anne Hathaway, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard, Juno Temple,Josh Pence, and hits theaters on July 20th 2012.

Touch

This seems like "Heroes" meets "Fringe" underlined by "Pi" with addition of "Lost" number 318. It could be anything. Creator is Tim Cring, the "Heroes" guy. And frankly the first season of "Heroes" was quite amazing. Kiefer Sutherland and Danny Glover are starring with a girl from JJ Abrams "Undercover", Gugu Mbatha-Raw. Let's see. It's coming on Fox in spring 2012.

Myxer Social Radio





Myxer has entered the crowded Internet radio market with Myxer Social Radio, an app aimed at providing a music-listening experience where you’re never alone.
The app offers several interactive components (see gallery below), including the “Song Stories” feature in which you can record 15- to 20-second videos of yourself telling stories about specific songs, or watch other users’ Song Stories. Those videos will appear on each song’s info page.
“Users want to be connected and be social with whatever they do,” says Myxer CEO Myk Willis, who envisions his app competing alongside heavyweight services Pandora, iHeartRadio and Last.fm as far as listening hours.
Once you sign up with your Facebook account, Myxer Social Radio also lets you listen and chat with friends in real time, create and enter public listening rooms ad see what they’re playing. Akin to Turntable.fm, people in Myxer rooms can thumbs-up or thumbs-down songs being played. If a song gets too many negative responses, Myxer skips the track and puts on another. Your friends’ responses will influence the app’s recommendation algorithm, which in turn will learn what type of songs or artists to play.

Burak Kaynak - WC CV Toilet Paper





Guerilla Tool: WC/CV Toilet Paper Roll

Want to find a job, but don't know where to start? Confused? Overwhelmed? Too much information?
The solution is simple: Capture people's attention!  On the average, people go to the bathroom 6 times a day. Public restrooms are used very often. Why not place your CV in front of thousands of people who use restrooms every day! WC/CV is a great chance to show an employer that you have the skills and experience required, and that you’re the right person for the job. WC/CV's special roll looks just like regular toilet paper and the paper is good for writing. Each Cv has 3 sheets with titles; Contact Information, Education, Employment History. Fill in the blanks, and put that roll in the company's toilet that you want to work for! or find better places!

Hot Coffee






Hot Coffee


Seinfeld mocked it. Letterman put it on one of his Top Ten lists. More than 15 years later, the McDonald's coffee case continues to be cited as a prime example of how citizens use "frivolous" lawsuits to take unfair advantage of America's legal system. But is that an accurate portrayal of the facts? First-time filmmaker and former public interest lawyer Susan Saladoff uses the infamous legal battle that began with a spilled cup of coffee to investigate what's behind America's zeal for tort reform - which threatens to restrict the legal rights of everyday citizens and undermine the entire civil justice system. Written by HBO

The Open University - 60-Second Adventures in Thought



The Open University strikes again. In June, they released The History of English, a series of witty animated videos that covered 1600 years of linguistic history in ten minutes. Now, they’re back with 60-Second Adventures in Thought, another animated sequence that highlights six famous thought experiments. It all starts with Zeno’s ancient Paradox of the Tortoise and Achilles. (Watch above.) Then we head straight to the 20th century, to five famous thought experiments in physics, math and computer science.

Philip Roth and Paul Auster - Death of the Novel



Novels — they’re in inevitable decline. They can’t compete with the movie screen, the TV screen and now the computer screen. Give things 25 years, and there will be just a small cult of readers left. That’s the prediction of American author, Philip Roth, who has 27 novels to his credit. And apparently, Roth is personally hastening the process. Earlier this year, he told a reporter for the Financial Times: “I’ve stopped reading fiction. I don’t read it at all. I read other things: history, biography. I don’t have the same interest in fiction that I once did.” When asked why, he quipped: “I don’t know. I wised up … ”



For Paul Auster, another productive novelist, the reports of the novel’s death are greatly exaggerated. Humans hunger for stories. They always will. And, the novel, it knows how to adapt and survive. Will it survive with the help of technology? Auster might not be the best person to ask. He owns neither a computer nor a mobile phone. Lucky man.

Twitter Redesigned Timeline



Patrick Bisch from Pinglio reports on the updated twitter timeline.

It seems Twitter is quietly rolling out a much-needed update to its Timeline feature. The new Timeline allows users to click individual tweets to expand conversations, media, and RTs. Alternatively, when hovering over a tweet, an Open link appears and can be clicked to expanding the tweet. Once opened, aClose link appears to close the expanded tweet. There haven’t  been seen any official word on this from the official Twitter account or theirblog, but a few users are reporting it.

Gotham Font




Gotham is a family of geometric sans-serif digital typefaces designed by American type designer Tobias Frere-Jones in 2000. Gotham's letterforms are inspired by a form of architectural signage that achieved popularity in the mid-twentieth century, and are especially popular throughout New York City.[1]
Since creation, Gotham has been highly visible due to its appearance in many notable places, including a large amount of campaign material created for Barack Obama's 2008 presidential campaign, as well as the cornerstone of the One World Trade Center, the tower to be built on the site of the former World Trade Center in New York.

WTK Photography - The City



Wesley Townsend Kitten - The City timelapse / San Francisco
Music is "Dayvan Cowboy" by Boards of Canada
wtkphotography.com
WTK Photography was started in 2007. Documentary photographer Wesley Townsend Kitten has experience in wedding photography, engagement photography, family portraits, senior portraits, modeling photography, and event photography. Wesley has attended both Brooks Institute of Photography and Academy of Art University for documentary photography. He has worked for a talent agency shooting head shots and modeling shots. For two summers, he served as the documentary photographer for a nonprofit inner city home repair organization in Memphis, TN. He was the staff photographer for Vetted Word, a creative community of poets, writers, and musicians in San Francisco, CA. Wesley currently lives in Waco, TX.
From WTK photography vimeo page:
This timelapse is about a year in the making. I started sometime in June of 2010 and finished it on August 19, 2011. It wasn't constant work of course, just working on it every now and then. I'd estimate I have invested anywhere between 250 and 300 hours on it. Most of this was time I spent walking, biking, or riding the bus to locations I was shooting. There are very few locations I used a car to get to. Total frame count is about 28,000 frames and 85 different shots. All the frames weren't used in the final product as I edited down the clips. You will notice that some of the shots were shaky. San Francisco is a very windy city and even my heavy tripod couldn't remain still. In hindsight I should have bought a different head. All photos were shot in JPEG and then some light editing in Lightroom. Compiled into .mov clips in Quicktime Pro and then all brought together in Final Cut Pro.
I started this project because there are so many people photographing the city that I wanted to capture it in a different way that most were not. Between the time I started and the time I finished, timelapses have become huge. It's amazing to see what fellow artists can make with even the most basic equipment.

Gustav Johansson - EF Live The Language



Gustav started his directing career around 15 years ago in Sweden, making his own edits on his father’s 2-channel VHS- editor. He invented his own groundbreaking style by cutting Disney movies together with Hockey games and turning them into movie trailers. This revolutionary way of handling moving image and visual storytelling attracted interest and all of a sudden Uppsala seemed a bit too small for Gustav. Although only 25 years old, Gustav has already collected awards like: 1st prize at the Cannes Young Directors Awards, Winner of the Cannes Future Lions, named “Young Gun Of the month”, Gold at the One Show and the Clios.

Plot: "Into the already complex relationship between Carl Jung (Michael Fassbender) and his mentor Sigmund Freud (Viggo Mortensen) arrives a young Russian woman diagnosed with hysteria (Keira Knightley)."

Well, Michael Fassbender's new film. The cast is Interesting, already standard for Cronenberg (Mortnesen), but This Carl Jung act interests me much.

Anne Hardy




Anne Hardy (born 1970) is a British artist best known for her large-scale photographic work of unusual interior spaces. She completed an MA in photography at the Royal College of Art in 2000, having graduated from Cheltenham School of Art in 1993 with a degree in painting. Hardy lives and works in London and is represented by Maureen Paley, London.
Hardy's images appear to be photographs of existing places but they are quite the opposite. They are actually carefully constructed sets, created by the artistin her studio, which she then photographs. The subjects of Hardy's artworks are usually objects or junk which she has found in marketsDIY shops, urban skips or jumble sales. The type of objects she chooses have ranged from large antlers, brightly coloured cables, old Christmas trees, light bulbs, Americanbasketballs, orange balloons, scientific test tubes and even butterflies. Hardy puts these everyday objects together and transforms them into unusual, almost dreamlike, environments which can be unnerving with their themes of abandonment and desolation. [1]
Other characteristics in her work are unpainted plasterboard on the walls of the rooms and visible foam sealant. Her work Lumber (2003) for example, where a neglected room houses heaps of old Christmas trees which have been hidden from the world and left to decay. Art writer Charlotte Cotton comments, "The skill of making a photograph such as Lumber is to avoid overloading the image with obvious signs and allegory, but to maintain a sense, albeit a fabricated one, that we are looking at an observed rather than a meticulously constructed scene. The space looks like a storeroom for unwanted Christmas trees, but the indoor environoment, the menacing shape of the mound of greenery and the thought of what might lie beneath it make for a compelling hovering between what this place might actually be and the unsettling atmosphere within it."[2]
Hardy's work has been published in Vitamin PH: New Perspectives in Photography (2006) by Phaidon Press and Charlotte Cotton's book The Photograph as Contemporary Art as well as magazines including Dazed & ConfusedThe GuardianPhotography NowTank (magazine) and Art Review. In January 2007, Hardy gave an interview to The Guardian newspaper on the subject of her image Untitled VI (2005).[3]
In March 2007, the Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A), London exhibited Anne Hardy's 2005 work Untitled IV (balloons). The V&A bought the image for their collection with the help of theCecil Beaton art fund. In June 2007, three of Hardy's works, Booth (2006), Untitled IV (balloons) (2005) and Close Range (2006), were exhibited at the 52nd International Venice Biennaleart festival. The accompanying New Forest Pavilion exhibition catalogue included the image Outpost (2007) and a critical essay by John Slyce.
In April 2008, Hardy had her first USA solo exhibition in New York at Bellwether Gallery. This was followed with Hardy's work being included in a group show at Gagosian Gallery, New York called Untitled (Vicarious): Photographing the Constructed Object which ran from September until December 2008.[4] Hardy's work was shown in the Helsinki Biennale which ran until January 25, 2009.[5]

De Stijl Magazine
Edited by Theo van Doesburg



De Stijl, Dutch for "The Style", also known as neoplasticism, was a Dutch artistic movement founded in 1917. In a narrower sense, the term De Stijl is used to refer to a body of work from 1917 to 1931 founded in the Netherlands. De Stijl is also the name of a journal that was published by the Dutch painter, designer, writer, and critic Theo van Doesburg (1883–1931), propagating the group's theories.
