SOUND

I absolutely fell in love with this piece when i came across it today. The whole concept it beautiful and who wouldn't love to have a soundtrack playing as they walk through a serene village. The importance  of sound and how it moves us is greatly shown in Sony's Soundville. The Seydisfjordur village was turned into an extraordinary sound-system for a week.


Another exciting piece of the project is the Bravia HD sound advert. How powerful can the sound of a sugar cube being dropped into a cup of tea be experienced and transformed ?

Culture Exchange

There's many different ways that we can explore and share different cultures.

What’s your dream?


365 days, 365 dreams - one extraordinary journey across half the world

inspiring the world to dream and sharing the stories… 

"What is DREAMPANORAMA?
Dream Panorama is a road trip project to explore peoples’ dreams and how they realize them.
During the journey, we will interview, photograph and film real people around the world who have dreams or have achieved their dreams. We are getting the stories of their dreams out to the world by our website, social media, book, exhibition, and a documentary film. Ten years after the trip, we will come back to the interviewees to see how their dreams have impacted their lives."

Life in a Day

"Oscar-winning film director Kevin Macdonald's Life in a Day was born out of a unique partnership between Ridley Scott's Scott Free UK and YouTube. The film is a user-generated, feature-length documentary shot on a single day—July 24, 2010.
Enlisted to capture a moment of the day on camera, the global community responded by submitting more than 80,000 videos to YouTube. The videos contained over 4,500 hours of deeply personal, powerful moments shot by contributors from Australia to Zambia, and from the heart of bustling major cities to some of the most remote places on Earth.
Life in a Day brings together the most compelling footage from YouTube to create a 90-minute film crafted by Macdonald, executive producer Ridley Scott, producer Liza Marshall, and their teams. The film offers a unique experience that shows—with beauty, humor, and joyful honesty—what it's like to be alive on Earth today."

PLAY?!




by FUNC design
music: Mer du Japon (Teenagers Remix) by AIR


Can we change human behaviour by slowing down. In our busy lives sometimes we need to be taken away from the daily routine so that we can think, feel, and slow down for a minute or even a second. By play Im referring to the subtle lingering feeling that we all should get when playing:
surprise
joy
detachment from worries

Perth, Australia

One of my favourite public installations that I have come across in Perth outside of the City Library and Gallery. Subtle, positive, and functional.






When I fell in love with Kozyndan's Uprising, their interpretation of the Hokusai.
