Alessandro Merlo – Photography

Alessandro Merlo is an Italian photographer living and working in London. We love his style, which brings together ‘queer’ identities, fashion photography and portraiture in a very unique way.

You can check out more of his work on his site over here.

Painted Earth

We love this project!

Moniker is a digital design studio in the Netherlands and for one of their recent projects they created ‘Painted Earth’. This allows people to paint using the earth as a canvas. By logging into their phone and walking around, their movement becomes brush strokes – walk faster and the paint makes dots, stand in one space and it pools and drips. But it doesn’t end there – up to 200 people can be in one place and ‘paint’ at the same time.

Amazing!

You can visit the project online here.

 

Subin Yang – Illustration

Subin Yang is an illustrator working out of New York who got her Bachelor’s degree in illustration from Pacific Northwest College of Art in Portland, OR.

We love her busy, slightly crazy illustrations that have so much to see and experience inside all of them. Whether she’s illustrating produce, food, or domestic scenes her energy always shines through.

We can’t wait to see how much further her talent takes her in her career!

Elena Heatherwick – Photography

Elena Heatherwick is a British photographer who works out of London. Today, we’re sharing her work where she photographs and documents midwives in Liberia – capturing the hope, excitement, happiness and stress of their jobs.

As a window into a world, you’ll be hard pressed to find a selection of photographs that do a better job of putting you entirely into something you might never have seen.

Yahoo! Japan – The History of the Internet

What an undertaking! This site by Yahoo! Japan tells the entire history of the Internet, using a scrollable 3D modelled tower – with interactive information at each step of the way. We’ve included a few screenshots here for you to understand the navigation of the site and how it works, but it really has to be seen to be believed!

The Diver

One of our Multimedia lecturers, Daniela de Lange, recently collaborated on the following short film, The Diver – for Batch TV.

Official Description:

The Diver: A short story about an insecure young woman who is self-conscious about her passion for diving.

For the diver, what she does and what she loves are two separate things. What she does comes at the cost of what she loves. She loves diving. This love demands an uncomfortable amount of self belief, perseverance and emotional investment. Insecure as she is, she does what she loves in isolation. In this way, the diver represents the things we truly love, but rarely get to, because we are so consumed by what we do.
