The Happy Film: Stefan Sagmeister gets Happy

(8 years ago)
Written with additional reporting by Christina BeardStefan Sagmeister held a single flower as he stood in a busy market on a sunny day and complimented women who walked past him. This celebrated graphic designer was on a mission to prompt a smile, start a conversation and get a date. Women generally ignored his flattering words, making for a series of hard-to-watch interactions that show Sagmeister at his most vulnerable. This scene was screened last night at the School of Visual Arts Theatre in New York City, as a teaser for Sagmeister's forthcoming feature length film called The Happy Film. The event was advertised as a fundraiser for The Happy Film. While the $50 entrance fee seemed steep, audience members were promised a presentation by Sagmeister, a screening of an excerpt of the film, along with a Q&A with Sagmeister and Hillman Curtis, the film's Co-Director and a renown web designer of sites like Yahoo!, Adobe, and Metropolitan Opera. Curtis is known for being able to capture the essence of his subjects, including graphic designers Milton Glaser, David Carson, and Paula Scher. This was not the first time these two worked together; Curtis documented Sagmeister's solo exhibition at Deitch Projects in 2008. Sagmeister has researched the topic of happy for many years now and even gave a TED Talk about it last year. "I wanted to make a film about happiness, but it was too vague," he said. "So I wanted to make a film about my own happiness, something that I was very close[..]

Core77 Design Award 2011: Radioball, Notable for DIY/Hack/Mod

For full details on the project, jury commenting and more information about the awards program, go to Core77DesignAwards.comDesigner: TEAGUE - Benoit Collette, Adam Kumpf, Tad ToulisLocation: Seattle, WA, USACategory: DIY/Hack/ModAward: NotableMuseum of PossibilitiesThe Museum of Possibilities was created for the public to take ownership of a new space in Montréal's Quartier des spectacles. People were asked to share what they would like to see, do, or who they would like to meet in this space—and together explore all possibilities.Radioball was originally a hack, a way to create a tangible interface. The idea of creating a device without any buttons, screens or recognizable interface was a great challenge. Looking at the media coverage of this study, people seemed to agree with us that touch screens are not the ultimate way to interact with a product.Exploring other ways to interact with common electronic product today is infinite. The amount of tools, sensors, and material we have at our disposal to create more poetic and more human ways to interact with our everyday surrounding is vast. The beauty of the Radioball is to use those tools, but abstract them away so that the user doesn't have to think about the amount of electronics inside—they just think about how fun it is to interact with it. Based on this observation we are developing[..]

Department of Energy Prize Indicates Philips' LED Bulb is the Real Deal

(8 years ago)
Remember Philips' futuristic-looking EnduraLED lightbulb? Roughly two years after they pulled the wraps off of it, the bulb has now passed the U.S. Department of Energy's 18-month testing period and won the DOE's L-Prize, a competition designed to spur innovative, viable replacements for the venerable 60-watt incandescent. Philips will get $10 million for being the first to clear all of the technical hurdles and field testing.Philips is no longer referring to the bulb as the "EnduraLED" in press releases, so a name change is probably in the works. But whatever they end up calling it, the LED bulb puts out an amount of light consistent with a standard 60-watt, yet sucks up just 9.7 watts of juice. Consumer release dates are vague, with the company reporting the bulb "could arrive in stores as soon as early 2012."(more...)

High end or high risk?

Mila Kunis – “If somebody finds me attractive, God bless them.” (5 photos)

The 'Friends With Benefits' star Mila Kunis covers the September 2011 issue of Glamour UK. I think it's safe to say her career is sky rocketing. At the beginning of this year, she finally broke up with Macaulay Culkin (after an 8 year relationship). Then 'Black Swan' came out - big hit. Now her new movie with Justin Timberlake 'Friends With Benefits' is out. She was recently asked whether her parents are okay with her movie's steamy scenes. Her response:"They’re okay with it. They’ve seen it, I’m still here [alive.] No, my dad saw it. You know, he liked it. He thought it was very funny. He actually thought it was sincerely very funny and that he liked the movie. Yeah no, he liked it.

Bjork's Biophilia: An Ambitious New Album Experience

(8 years ago)
We love it when creatives play with the tenuous lines between physical and virtual experiences. Björk recently dove deep into this sort of exploration with the release of her newest album, Biophilia, as a suite of iPhone/iPad apps—leaving us with a (growing) treasure trove of interactive goodies. She collaborated with artists, designers, instrument makers, software developers (M/M Paris, Scott Snibbe) and others to create the production, based in themes of nature and technology, all with music as the guiding principle.Björk's music itself has grown organically over the years to incorporate greater complexity and symbolism, continually testing the boundaries of art, music, and technology. With Biophilia, Björk pushes herself and the concept of an "album" to the limit, creating a multi-faceted system for iPhone/iPad users. The album itself is an application (the 'mother' app), and each song is its own app with various interactive capabilities. (Only 2 songs are available at the moment - "Cosmogony" is free with the mother app, and "Crystalline" is $1.99.) The Biophilia/"Cosmogony" app serves as the 'home' for the whole system—which, appropriately, is rendered as an interactive astrological system/hub for delving into the different galaxies of songs. The "Cosmogony" song introduces the album suite, complete with an introduction to the concept of the album by David Attenborough, famed nature film host (providing instant nature-geek cred to the[..]
