Catching up with our old buddy Cassidy today, he tells me he was helping work on this: “Over the past four decades, artist Isaiah Zagar has covered more than 50,000 square feet of Philadelphia with stunning mosaic murals. In A Dream is a documentary feature film that chronicles his work and his tumultuous relationship with his wife, Julia. It follows the Zagars as their marriage implodes and a harrowing new chapter in their life unfolds.”
Go check the trailer over at In a Dream.
Above are two excerpts from the beginning of the film:
What an amazing set of illustrations and drawings at the ‘In The Year 2000‘ photoset on Flickr. Not to be missed, browse this nice collection and check some of the credits and history behind some of these illustrations. Very Inspiring and these will always leave you with what a let down of what didn’t happen, hah.
The New York Times has a short little interview with the couple behind this new house thats been getting a bit of press lately. For sure this is an interesting concept. But I love when they ask them about what about the comfort for say elderly people. They say, oh after a few months, its good, the old people are so much more healthy. Ok, nice answer but what about some jacked up broken hips that will come from trying to “crawl around on the floor like a snake.” I like the idea, but damn they really are 100% making it discomforting, MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!
Old time buddy and former co-worker, Mr Eric is giving away a free font on his site called Greyscale Basic. For a freebie, its pretty nice so grab it while the offer stands. If you like like, end up using on that hot, daddy-fat-pockets new client of yours, drop the guy a few bucks so he can enjoy a nice lunch or something. Lets don’t all be take take take, lets give back this year, make 2008 the year of the give back, yeah? No? Don’t like fonts? Ok, I don’t like you either.
Still haven’t picked up this hot book? Ok ok, we understand, you still aren’t sure and want to know more. Well never fear, awhile back the motion graphic news site Motionographer posted a quality review here, saying “Every page is a treasure trove of inspiration and history…”. We hope this review helps you finally decide how to spend that hard earned cash, enjoy!
Holy Micro-Structure Batman! Complex Matters works with, among many disciplines, designers (see Sean Hanna and Assa Ashuach) producing intricate and flexible material lattices. It will be interesting to see the how the relationship evolves between aesthetics and performance with such hyper-specificity.
