Learn to learn, reflections on Hyper Island

Sun, 19 Sep 2010 18:12:00 +0000

As I sit here upon a flight to Singapore I finally have a moment to reflect. Hyper Island, the international digital media school based out of an old Stockholm Karlskrona prison, kindly gave up an evening to talk to Creative Social in Sydney. So Hyper ...

PIXEL :: the world gets cubed

Mon, 12 Apr 2010 05:58:57 +0000

Beautifully executed pixel takeover of NYC, and then the world. If you like retro arcade games mixed with real-world footage in a fantastical mashup. Then you’ll love this. Ensure a full-screen view, wait for it to load and then hit play. The lovely Rachael sent this. ...

Do you work here?

Mon, 29 Mar 2010 07:34:47 +0000

Blu Dot inspired by the furniture finding scene of NYC (called ‘curb mining’). Dropped 25 Real Good Chairs in NYC to see what would happen. This video is what they discovered. When I first moved to Bondi collecting furniture from the street was the only way ...

Getting nexted on Chatroulette

Sat, 27 Feb 2010 21:52:25 +0000

Chatroullette is a hybrid of speed dating and hot or not (well pervert or not!), via video and IM chat, at least that’s my take on it. Watch Casey Neistat’s video study (above) to get an indepth view. Or, of course, play for yourself. In ...

So I’ve worked in Surry Hills for four years, specifically that bit around Reservoir, Foster and Commonwealth Streets, sometimes called SOGO (South of Goulburn St – terrible acronym I know). Firstly with HOST and most recently The Population. In that time I built quite a ...

This is my new bike it’s a limited edition SR500, built in 1983 it has about 25,000km’s on the dial… they’re becoming increasingly difficult to get hold of – so I’m quite chuffed. The bike was sourced from Japan by Luke and his team at ...

I know I’ve been offline for a while, but how did I miss this? A new friend in NYC just sent me the link to the Chalkbot created by Deeplocal for Nike and the 2009 Tour de France, the idea lives on the website ‘Wear ...

Thu, 08 Oct 2009 01:03:44 +0000

I posted on Keith Loutit’s ’tilt-shift photography’ technique a while back. First finding his work on Vimeo. Good to see NAB / ClemengerBBDO (Melbourne) using him and his technique in their latest ad ‘The Little Wonders’.

Thu, 16 Jul 2009 08:14:03 +0000

This visualisation could be better, I want to zoom in and out, explore countries and cities… but it does get the point across. Facebook is very well connected. Personally I have a love hate relationship with the platform… but that’s inevitable with something that I joined ...
