I found this today while visiting typography section jury at La Cambre visual art school (Brussels, Belgium).
Someone told me it is the last year project of a student in graphic communication section. It’s done in the cafetaria.

I don’t know the name of the student, does anyone know? Made by Basile Cuvelier.

Thanks Wendy for the photos, click “Continue reading” for more.

Rainbow in your hand

Hak Nam, City of Darkness, the old Walled City of Kowloon was an unmistakable presence in the midst of urban Hong Kong. It was also one of the city’s greatest anomalies. Built on a site measuring little more than 100 x 200 metres without recourse to legislation and with little regard for basic services.
The Walled City was home to some 35,000 people.

Magnetic Movie

  • 17.06.2008

Magnetic Movie is a Semiconductor film by Ruth Jarman and Joe Gerhardt shot at the NASA Space Sciences Laboratory, UC Berkeley, California, USA.

Natural magnetic fields are revealed as chaotic, ever-changing geometries… Are we observing a series of scientific experiments, the universe in flux, or a documentary of a fictional world?

Big Ideas (Don’t get any) is a submission from James Houston for the online contest Radiohead recently held. This contest challenge people to remix Nude from their album In Rainbows.

Based on the lyric (and alternate title) “Big Ideas: Don’t get any” I grouped together a collection of old redundant hardware, and placed them in a situation where they’re trying their best to do something that they’re not exactly designed to do, and not quite getting there.
It doesn’t sound great, as it’s not supposed to.

Plano Transitorio

Plano transitorio (Transitory Map), 2002 – 2004
© Milena Bonilla

This piece is a bus tour the artist made of a large section of the city (Bogotá), following different routes; in this mode of transportation it is common to find that the back seats have been cut open. In her journey, the artist carefully repaired these “wounds” with fine, delicate stitches.
– Marta Rodriguez, 2004
