This gorgeous time-lapse by filmmaker Jamie Scott starts off like any other video capturing the change of the seasons with the movement of the sun, but then around :30 something pretty remarkable happens. To create the effect Scott filmed in 15 locations around New York City’s Central Park, two times a week, for six months using the exact same tripod and camera lens settings resulting in the footage you see here.
The designer Timothy Goodman transformed the blank white walls of the Ace Hotel in New York with illustrations with paint markers and black paint. Paying homage to the city, this wonderful “99 Picture Frame Illustrations” is to discover in images in the article.
The Japanese are big fans of the photo booth, producing some of the most original examples of the stand-alone photo devices you can imagine: from machines which add cute frames around your pictures to examples which morph you into a big eyed manga character. Now a company called Omote 3D is taking the concept to the next level and will soon be offering people their likeness in miniature printed 3D form!
The company will be opening a pop-up shop at the Eye of Gyre gallery in Harajuku, where customers can get their figure scanned and printed using 3D printing technology. It’s a pretty fantastic concept. Imagine this: while today we find 2D prints of our long past relatives hidden away in a box – often wondering what they looked like in real-life – future generations may find our likeness in 3D form, giving a far more realistic glimpse of our actual appearance.
Omote and the Tokyo based creative lab PARTY, plan to operate the service daily from November 24th to January 13th, 2013 at a pop up store in the Eye of Gyre gallery, offering 3 sizes: small 10cm, medium 15cm, or large 20cm. The price for your “mini-me” isn’t exactly cheap, and will range between 21,000 to 42,000 yen ($264 to $529)… then again, that’s a small price for miniature immortality.
During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces in the UK and around the world. The aim of which is to raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and testicular cancer.
Once registered at movember.com each Mo Bro must begin the 1st of Movember with a clean shaven face. For the entire month each Mo Bro must grow and groom a moustache. There is to be no joining of the mo to the sideburns (that’s considered a beard), there’s to be no joining of the handlebars to the chin (that’s considered a goatee) and each Mo Bro must conduct himself like a true gentleman.
A Mo Sista is essentially a woman who loves a Mo. An individual that is dedicated to supporting the Mo Bros in her life through their moustache growing journey; whether it be a friend, colleague, family member or partner. These inspirational women are committed to raising awareness of men’s health issues and much needed funds for men’s health along the way.
Mo Bros effectively become walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November and through their actions and words raise awareness by prompting private and public conversation around the often ignored issue of men’s health.
At the end of the month, Mo Bros and Mo Sistas celebrate their Movember journey throwing their own Movember parties or attending one of the Gala” Partés held around the world to stand tall and celebrate the moustache.
