Lovingly handpainted illustration goods. por peachpatrol en Etsy Cómo un jefe indígena usa la tecnología para defender el Amazonas Esta historia no es nueva. Tampoco es del todo vieja: sigue ocurriendo en el corazón del Amazonas brasileño. Pero ahora que el jefe Almir Narayamoga, de la tribu de los Surui, fue elegido como una de las 100 personas más creativas de 2011 por la revista Fast Company, parece un buen momento para compartir esta historia que quizás no muchos conocen. Lejos de sentirse amenazado por la modernidad que ha invadido las vidas de su gente, el jefe Almir se aprovechó de ella y consiguió a un aliado improbable para salvar al medioambiente: a Google. La tribu Surui tuvo su primer contacto con el mundo externo hace 42 años. Imagínense cómo debe haber sido de chocante encontrarse con el mundo moderno, que trajo consigo a gente extraña, enfermedades, violencia y a los madereros, que destruían los territorios de los Surui talando árboles. Al principio los surui trataron de adaptarse y ser brasileños, y Almir fue el primero de la tribu en ir a la Universidad. Ver en YouTube

Miniature worlds by Takanori Aiba Incredible miniatures by illustrator/architect Takanori Aiba. tokyogoodidea.com via: emmeline + colossal Proyecto Squatters Dom Pérignon by David Lynch Spending an afternoon with David Lynch in the penthouse of the Chateau Marmont isn't necessarily an everyday occurrence—the filmmaker, known for his surrealistic visions, actually admits that he rarely leaves the house if he doesn't have to. As the son of a forester, Lynch grew up spending time with his father in their woodshop, and now enjoys time at home creating his own art, photography and sound studios. Lynch did venture out recently to the home of his friend, special effects designer Gary D’Amico, to collaborate on a bottle and package design project for Dom Pérignon. The two experimented with welding torches, shot beams of light into crystals, sprinkled sparkles and powered up smoke machines and other lighting effects to capture images for the resulting wraps. Shrouded in dreamy, glowing light streaks is Lynch's scrawled label, "Dom Pérignon by David Lynch" sliced horizontally across the dark Champagne bottle. For you is Champagne an every day or a special occasion beverage?

Artist Publishes His Life Online Via A Custom iPhone App (And 3 Other Projects That Tackle Living In Public) In our digital information age where social media and pocket devices are king, our private lives are no longer so private. By now this is public knowledge, much like your tweets, and it’s become such a universal truth it’s practically a cliche to say it. Whether it’s a model tweeting about a married actor hitting on her or you tweeting about that band/sandwich/art show you went to see/eat/experience, the private/public divide that was once so tangible has now become less so. At a time when governments are snooping on citizens, when our devices track our every move via satellite, when Google monitors your web activity, and on one side of the spectrum we witness the evasion of privacy laws in the name of protection and national security, while on the other we willingly “check-in” on Foursquare or post images to Instagram to notify the world of our activities and locations, the whole privacy/public debate becomes ever more pertinent.

Stanley Kubrick’s Photos of New York Life in the 40s Self portrait with showgirl Rosemary Williams 1948 – Photograph via VandM.com Stanley Kubrick—who wrote and directed Lolita, Dr. Strangelove, 2001: A Space Odyssey, A Clockwork Orange and The Shining—was one of America’s most influential filmmakers. Directors ranging from the Coen Brothers to Tim Burton paid visual homage to his works in their own films, and no less than Steven Spielberg said: “Nobody could shoot a picture better in history.” In fact Kubrick’s special skill behind the camera and his ability to create visual intrigue were evident long before he was a Hollywood icon. Even at the age of 17, Kubrick was an immense talent. It was during this period that Kubrick’s respected—and often-imitated—style first became apparent. Now, for the first time, fine art prints of Kubrick’s work as a photojournalist are available for sale. Images in this collection show the drama—both human and artistic—that infuse Kubrick’s work. All images are available as prints through VandM.com 2. 3. 4.
