Sitzmuster des Todes

todesmuster-1
Sitzmuster des Todes sammelt die „hässlichsten Sitzmuster der Welt“ und versieht sie mit treffenden wie lustigen Kommentaren. Oben Modell „Dezente Verwesung“:

Hier sehen Sie ein totes Muster im fortgeschrittenen Verwesungsgrad. Schicken Sie den Farbhumus Pantone zum Recyceln.

Bonus aus dem alten Blog: Camouflage im Öffentlichen Verkehr.

Update: Wer die Todesmuster überlebt hat, sollte auch mal einen Blick ins Tumblelog Public Pattern Transport von Urs Bellermann werfen:

This is a collection of seat patterns on public transport. At some point I couldn’t help but notice the extraordinary diversity:Each town has its own design. Sometimes there are several types. No butt ever seems to pay attention. So I started collecting snapshots with my phone.

Re­kur­siver Foto-Loop Ringelpiez mit Smartphones


YouTube: Photo-recursion (via Nerdcore)

Alexander Kolomietz hat auf seiner Geburtagsparty mit seinen Gästen ein bißchen Foto-Loop Ringelpiez gespielt:

The nice thing about a birthday party is that it brings couple dozens people with smartphones to one place. Such smart-phone equipped army is a great resource for all kind of experiments. On my birthday party I asked friends to form a circle and aim their phone cameras to the screen of the next person. In theory this should allow to see your back on your own screen. Practically it is impossible due to limited resolution of the cameras censors and LCD screens. To overcome these limitations I decided to use some image processing on the frames that I collected from all the participants of the experiment. Here is what I got.

Foto-Projekt: Studierende aus aller Welt in ihren Buden

studentenbuden
Um Ähnlichkeiten und Unterschiede in der Ausbildung zu vermitteln, hat Henny Boogert für sein Fotoprojekt ImagesConnect Studierende in Kenia, Russland, Moldawien, Kuba, Indien, Bolivien, den Philippinen und Niederlanden in ihren Buden porträtiert und interviewt. Das auf dem Foto ist der 22-jährige Pankaj Yadav aus Indien, der vor 2030 die Geschäftswelt in seiner Heimat aufgemischt haben möchte.

Students throughout the world fight for the same ideal: to move forward, to make a career. As universal as this aim is, as universal is their housing. A bed, a small seating area, some posters on the wall and clutter on the ground. Another resemblance: parents in many countries put away any extra money to finance at least one of their children. They are often supported by siblings, uncles and aunts. And then that dream to move forward, to have a career, becomes a dream of more persons than just that one student on the photo.

Time Travel von Flora Borsi

time-travel
Die ungarische Fotografin Flora Borsi montiert sich als Zeitreisende in historische Fotos. Leider nur ein paar Bilder, wenn’s nach mir ginge gerne als fortlaufendes Tumblelog:

How would time travel affect life as we know it? Capture the most important events in history, upload to instagram, twitter, facebook? If time travel did indeed become a reality, how would it affect our world as we currently experience it? I imagined how I would to do! My inspiration was a Charlie Chaplin Movie.

Invasive Species – Mobilfunkmasten als Bäume getarnt

mobilfunkbaum

In Südafrika hat Dillon Marsh für sein Projekt „Invasive Species“ Mobilfunkmasten fotografiert, die als Bäume getarnt sind. Im alten Blog hatte ich mal Robert Voit verlinkt, der sich ebenfalls der neuen Baumart gewidmet hat. (via Wired)

In 1996 a palm tree appeared almost overnight in a suburb of Cape Town. This was supposedly the world’s first ever disguised cell phone tower. Since then these trees have spread across the city, South Africa and the rest of the world. Invasive Species explores the relationship between the environment and the disguised towers of Cape Town and its surrounds.

The Night Steve Jobs returned to Apple, Dec 20, 1996

steve-1996

Als Steve Jobs am 20. Dezember 1996 zu Apple zurückkehrte, schnappte sich Tim Holmes eine Apple QuickTake Camera und machte ein paar Fotos. Die Bilder sind so banal wie qualitativ schlecht (die Farben!) – aber gerade das gefällt mir an dem Album:

Working late on a Friday on December 20th at Apple Computer as Mac OS Evangelist, my manager came rushing past my office door saying to come with him to Town Hall, Apple’s theater for announcements, company meetings and the like. It was clearly not a company meeting… I called Mitch, my wife who also worked there at the time, and told her meet me there. We had no idea what was about to happen… I tend to take a camera everywhere, so I had my Apple QuickTake camera, which Steve Jobs killed within the year. The colors are way off due to the poor quality of digital cameras in 1996, Steve’s jacket was black in real life.

Was Ali trägt

ali

Zoe Spawton ist Fotografin und lebt in Berlin. Seit einiger Zeit begegnet ihr regelmäßig ein älterer Herr in schicker Klamotte:

Ali walks past the cafe I work at in Berlin every morning at 9:05am. I’m not sure where he is going, but we always say hello to each other. He always wears such great clothes. I don’t speak much German and he speaks a little bit of English, but I managed to ask if I could take his photo. He gladly accepted.

So entstand das Tumblelog What Ali Wore und wer sich durchklickt, findet dort neben jede Menge Style auch ein paar Infos zu Ali’s Biografie. (via KFMW)

Dreidimensionaler Stadtplan aus Nahrungsmitteln


architekur-food_2 architektur-food
Wer für die nächste Party eine Alternative zu Nudelsalat und Käseigel sucht, sollte mal einen Blick auf den Stadtplan von Artdirektor Petter Johansson werfen, der in Zusammenarbeit mit dem Fotografen Henrik Petersson entstanden ist.

The Atelier Food still life is built on a grid. The still life represents the work of Atelier Food and the connection between food and society. It links the playfulness and creativity within the project with the ambitious goals and long-term challenges. In the spirit of the whole Atelier Food project it is also a creative co-operation between a chef, one Art Director and one Photographer.
