Say Something

What would you like to do before you die?
Say Something is a new city-project by an anonymous Ghent based person. He or she wants to create an open discussion among the Ghent-population. The open questions are on the posters, the dialogue depends on the different responses of the participants.

How does it work?
When you see a poster of Say Something in the streets of Ghent, you can answer the question by SMS or email. The most remarkable answers are posted on the Facebook page. That’s where I found this picture (and the one of Budapest which I posted a few weeks ago). I’m love love loving these new creative projects in this vibrant city.

I think I’ll put coconut-pineapple bowling on my to-do-list for this summer.
What a wonderful waste of time ^^

Hero // Stippling, Pointillism

This video shows the making of  “Hero” a drawing of Miguel Endara’s dad, which is composed entirely out of 3.2 million ink dots.  I think it’s a great motivator for endurance and hard work. Especially considering that it’s not just the act of making thousands of dots, but it’s also managing to compose all of those dots into a (rather funny) image of his father.

Beyond amazing! (:

PS: I’m wondering how many hand-cramps the guy had though…

Polaroid Love

A story about (Polaroid)love.

During the 50 years of the existence of the Polaroid Camera, already 5 billion polaroidpictures have been made. If all these pictures would be gathered, they would certainly fill a big crater on the Moon.  Nice to know is that about a quarter of the world population is pictured on them. Each one of these pictures displays a small story, just like this movie.

 
 
 


					

Facepark

In these times where social networks are a kind of new religion, Diesel comes with something against it. At the outdoor event Facepark – a wink to Facebook – people exchanged their digital identity for analog one. They walked around in cardboard profiles, tagged each other with stickers and walked through a living Farmville. An action that is cool in all its clumsiness made for the outlaws just like Diesel likes to do it. (Watch the video below to check out the event!)

Or as they say themselves : “A stupid idea That Can Change The World. But it Probably Will not. “

What the hell is Lomography?

It was in the early 1990s when two students in Vienna, Austria, discovered a small enigmatic Russian camera, the Lomo Kompakt Automat, and started a new style of artistic experimental photography of unorthodox snapshots. In the blink of an eye the Lomographic message spread around the planet and people from North to South were screaming for Lomo LC-A’s. So they hopped on a plane, flew to St. Petersburg and negotiated a contract for the worldwide distribution of this fantastic little camera. Then everything happened quickly for Lomography. They set up the 10 golden rules as their guiding principals, held numerous exhibitions, world congresses, parties and events. Mounted groundbreaking collaborations and projects, installed lomography.com as their communication hub, developed new products, films and accessories all while opening up Lomography Gallery Stores in metropolises worldwide.

What started out spontaneously as an artistic approach to photography in the Vienna underground scene developed into Lomography becoming an international socio-cultural movement using photography as a creative approach to communicating, absorb and capturing the world. Today they are a globally active organization dedicated to experimental and creative visual expression, a playful combination of lo-tech and hi-tech and the amalgamation of a cultural institution with a commercial photographic and design company focussing entirely on the unique imagery, style and approach of analogue photography and its further development.

The 10 golden rules of Lomography

  1. Take your camera everywhere you go
  2. Use it any time – day and night
  3. Lomography is not an interference in your life, but part of it
  4. Try the shot from the hip
  5. Approach the objects of your lomographic desire as close as possible
  6. Don’t think
  7. Be fast
  8. You don’t have to know beforehand what you captured on film
  9. Afterwards either
  10. Don’t worry about any rules

My little analogue princess..Diana Mini

The tiny shize shouldn’t fool you, because this little camera shoots big! A single roll of 35mm film will  last ages, so there are no excuses, you can shoot forever. 72 rectangular shots on one film lets you snap and snap and snap again! When you have finished snapping, you will load another film and restart the snapping process ad infinitum!

Let me tell you a little something about Lomography and the Diana Mini!

Lomography is life, light, love, lust, laughter, luck and many other words that don’t necessarily begin with L. More importantly Lomography is constantly keeping the dream of Analogue photography alive and making that dream a reality. In a time where our hard-drives are clogged with terabytes of digital files, film photography is a breath of fresh air and something that you can actually feel with all of your senses. (just don’t lick the negatives) Lomography is now a global community of people with a shared love towards the analogue snap-shot, the grain of film and spontaneous moments.

It was important to establish some rules that Lomographers could look at, be inspired by, follow or totally ignore..

  1. take your camera everywhere you go & whenever you go
  2. use it anytime, day or night
  3. lomography is not an interference in your life, but a part of it
  4. shoot from the hip
  5. approach the objects of your Lomographic desire as close as possible
  6. don’t think
  7. be fast
  8. you don’t have to know beforehand what you’ve captured on film
  9. you don’t have to know afterwards, either
  10. don’t worry about the rules

It’s been scientifically proven by a top of scientist working in a top scientific lab in a very important country on earth that some people can’t dance because their weight is incorrectly shifted by 235 grams in the wrong direction. This means bad coordination and therefore bad rhythm. The Diani Mini is precisely 235 grams (when loaded with film and flash) so if you wear it around your neck on the dance floor you will finally be able to look good when busting your moves. This new equilibrum will work as well in all general situations that require good balance. Another reason to take your Diana Mini everywhere you go!!

I luuuv it
