Friday, November 26th, 2010 A few months ago I tag-teamed a sketchnotes illustration project with my friend Mike Rohde for Tribal DDB Worldwide , Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s Pioneer program , and TEDMED 2010. They’d seen our Viznotes booklet for SXSW 2010 , and wanted to create something similar. (If you’re interested in reading more about the project, Mike posted a great writeup .) Here are a few of my illustrations.
History teaches us to thing of ornament as something additive and permanent, a metal encrustation no an otherwise ordinary building facade or a specially carved piece of wooden trim. Ornamentation, however, can be dazzling, impressive and transform the entire feel of a room even when it is temporary – as these spectacular shadow-pattern wall lamps vividly illustrate. These lighting designs by Sha-do come in all kinds of styles, ranging from symmetrical and geometric to curving, twisting, maze-shaped and otherwise highly detailed patterns. Some of his more contemporary creations are particularly visually attractive, casting fractal-like shades on the walls around them or projecting series of simple stepping stones or abstract fractured shards. Of course, these can all be turned on and back off with the simple flip of a switch – perfect for parties or selective mood lighting.
In this, Lang's final silent epic, the legendary filmmaker spins a tale involving a wicked cartel of spies who co-opt an experimental mission to the moon in the hope of plundering the satellite's vast (and highly theoretical) stores of gold. When the crew, helmed by Willy Fritsch and Gerda Maurus (both of whom had previously starred in Lang's Spies ), finally reach their impossible destination, they find themselves stranded in a lunar labyrinth without walls where emotions run amok, and the new goal becomes survival. A modern Daedalus tale which uncannily foretold Germany's wartime push into rocket-science, Woman in The Moon is as much a warning-sign against human hubris as it is a hopeful depiction of mankind's potential.
