Being in Thailand, I sometimes miss the circuit of some pop things (music videos for example), which doesn’t bother me either. But last night while at the gym I caught this Mika video.

A 4 minute short about Paul Rand created for his posthumous induction to the One Club Hall of Fame in 2007. Produced for Imaginary Forces by Cara McKenney and executive produced by Maribeth Phillips. Additional I.F. credits go to designer/animators Joey Salim, Jeremy Cox and Liz Centolella and animators Andrew Chung, Sean Eno and Chase Massingill. It was edited by I.F.’s Corey Weisz, with sound design by Derek Lee.
Genevieve just wrote and she had a link to her new show in the email, so thought I would share it with everyone. I don’t even know if the show is up yet for the public to view. Genevieve’s new show is called “Food Chain” and it is in the Netherlands. Really looks wonderful. It is nice to see how she always takes her work one step further.

D-Fuse: Surface (only in Bangkok) (FREE)
Sat 26 Jan (19.00hrs)
Playground!, Sukhumvit 55 (Thonglor)
A collaborative, ongoing audio-visual work, produced by the London-based creative unit, D-Fuse, together with local creatives in eight cities across East Asia. In Bangkok, D-Fuse and Thai creatives B.O.R.E.D will film and record aspects of the city over three days before performing the results live. Each city is therefore an exclusive event, growing as the tour progresses. At the end of the tour, Surface will have captured the essence of urban expansion on film and in sound across the region in a unique and vital way.
