Documentary Watch: Project Nim

 

Project Nim is a powerful look at how science can go from studying an animal to exploiting it.  In this doc we follow Nim, an adorable baby chimpanzee who was taken from his mother and placed with a foster human mother as part of a “nature vs. nurture” academic experiment. Nim was to grow up around humans and learn language and communicate like a human being.

Ryan Mosley’s distinctive visual language is rooted in its timeless qualities; archaic skulls, top hats and fig leaves collide with anthropomorphic limbs and futuristic, shamanic figures that create a bewildering backdrop in which anything is possible. Ryan has a show up at Alison Jacques Gallery in London from July 15th-August 13th 2011

Dry the River X Xavier Barrade= Amazing Ad Campaign

Xavier Barrade’s 3D posters for rock band Dry The River is nothing short of amazing! Xavier spent over 35 hours to create each 3d poster, hand cutting all the pieces and glueing them together.  What he ended up with is an ad campaign that LITERALLY sticks out from the sea of advertisting!  Watch a time-lapse sequence of Xavier building one of the horses after the jump!

Design Watch: Loll Designs

When I close my eyes and dream of outdoor furniture, I see visions of Loll’s cheery Vang Chairs, or whiling away the hours in their rocking Racer Chair , or napping in the shade on a 405 Chaise. Loll’s furniture has a strong architectural presence while remaining friendly and homey. See more after the jump.
