Clerkenwell Design Week Festival 2014 | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Even though I was adventuring on my own that evening, I really enjoyed the buzzing atmosphere and work on display. It was primarily a festival for product and interior designers so not my usual crowd but since working at gp studio (specialising in brand strategy, retail architecture, interior, graphic and lighting design) my eyes have been opened to a new world of materials and technical terms.

Scotiabank CONTACT Photography FestivalMaterial Self: Performing the Other Within

Scotiabank CONTACT Photography FestivalMaterial Self: Performing the Other Within | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Material Self: Performing the Other Within brings together photo-based works by eight artists from the four corners of the world, all of whom explore the potential of clothing, costume, uniform, and props to communicate character and to draw a bridge across distances. They fuse cultures, traditions, and customs, linking the past to the present through performative gestures that reveal breakdowns in cultural boundaries and the cross-pollination of identities. While many of them reflect upon their heritage, rituals, and the country in which they live, some seek to examine distant mythologies and internal experiences. Each of the artists make use of materials, props, and associated iconographies and signifiers to articulate shifting identities, while challenging stereotypes and fixed expectations. They bring light to the other within, an entity of the self that emerges from their images.

ECAL Library's insight:
David Favrod - Charles Fréger - Hendrik Kerstens - Namsa Leuba - Meryl McMaster - Dominique Rey - Tomoko Sawada - Mary Sibande: all very talented photographers!

How one of the best films at Sundance was shot using an iPhone 5S

How one of the best films at Sundance was shot using an iPhone 5S | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Tangerine, a breakout hit from this year’s Sundance Film Festival, is full of surprises. There’s the subject matter: transgender prostitutes working in a not-so glamorous part of Hollywood. And there are the characters: flinty, funny, nobody’s victim. But the story behind the camera is as surprising as what’s in front of it. Particularly because the camera used to shoot Tangerine was the iPhone 5S.

The 26th edition of the photojournalism festival Visa pour l’Image began this weekend in Perpignan, two weeks after terrorists from the “Islamic State” executed the American photographer James Foley. Once again, the dissemination of images of violence raises questions.

“If Visa pour l’Image 2014 is violent, it’s because the world is violent,” said festival director Jean-François Leroy this week in an interview with the Catalan press.

Tarantino is not competing in this year’s event, but he spoke to journalists and film critics before a 35mm screening of his hit “Pulp Fiction” on the beach on Friday night.

This series were taken at the 2010 Shanghai World Expo. Every single day, hundreds of thousands of visitors swarmed into the Shanghai World Expo. Many tourists hurriedly seize the wooden sheep sculptures to use them as the seats, striking all kinds of postures.

I arranged these candid shots into traditional Chinese calligraphic squares in a kind of contemporary way. I think they are still documentary in the way they reflect reality, like memorial relics of present-day China.
