In Nextness Visual Diary, we highlight the top pieces of art, craft, video and design that grabbed us in the past week or so. This week’s visual diary is curated by Athan Didaskalou, digital strategist at Ogilvy Melbourne. Follow him and his finely-curated links on Twitter @ath.
1. People staring at computers.
I love this. Guy installs software on Apple Store macs that recognises you’re face and takes a picture. We all look at the screen with such discontent, when the world is at our fingertips.
2. Batman does beautiful.
Beautiful and striking re-interpretations of pop culture icons from animator Liam Brazer.
3. Crime never sleeps (except at 3am).
Interesting to see visual data that shows what time crime happens in American cities. Common trend? Crooks sleep at 3am.
4. Spacesuit of the week.
Favourite blog The Fox is Black has a weekly spacesuit post that showcases how the iconic dress has made its way into design culture.
5. Skating India.
Something old + something old = something new. Oxelo skaters take on India.
6. Impossible, made possible.
The Impossible Project walks us through the numerous processes involved in creating the iconic Polaroid film.
7. Designy, cool, temporary tattoos?
You’re only one click away…
8. Pencil shaving portraits.
For the contributors page for Wallpaper* Handmade 2011 by Kyle Bean.
9. See something or say something.
Beautifully plotting of where people post geotagged photos to Flickr, and geotagged tweets to Twitter. Highlights areas where people love to share.
What a champ! Relive the joy with these colourful Tour de France posters by Crayonfire.
