The Ultra-Portable fps1000 Can Capture Over 10,000fps and Only Costs $485 | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

High speed cameras that shoot thousands of frames per second are, in general, both big and expensive. But if you’re looking for a much more portable and much more affordable option, and you don’t mind trading in some resolution, the fps1000 might be the perfect ‘poor man’s’ alternative.

Bruno Fontana Urban Wallpapers

Bruno Fontana Urban Wallpapers | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Repetitions, accumulations and wallpaper, in a nod to the fifties and sixties, is a form of nostalgia and decoration.

In these times, when kinetic art, so long forgotten, has been revived and even celebrated in the most prestigious places and popular galleries, Bruno Fontana’s work takes on a special meaning. Because it does not fall under any of what I’ve cited above.

Stunning New Book Documents 100 Years Of Black Cinema In Posters

Stunning New Book Documents 100 Years Of Black Cinema In Posters | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Since 1973, cinephile John Duke Kisch has been documenting the evolution of African American film through a beloved, but sometimes overlooked medium -- movie posters. From "Siren of the Tropics," starring the inimitable Josephine Baker, to "Cotton Comes to Harlem," an Ossie Davis favorite, Kisch meticulously found and saved the stunning visual advertisements for films that adorned city streets and theater halls. Eventually, he amassed over 38,000 posters from 30 different countries, amounting to a massive visual history of Hollywood's relationship to race and representation.

It’s the reverse designs that have got us really excited, not just because they look fab but because of the concept behind them. Titled Beauty of Boundaries, Snøhetta’s notes use images from Norway’s costal landscape and translates them into pixellated, colour-blocked snapshots.

I’m interested in the first two series in the transformation of reality, especially the interiority of the subject, its various facets, its cracks, its emotions and imperfection, but also the body as a “vehicle” and witness to the different emotions and cracks in the soul.

Christopher Makos White Trash

Christopher Makos White Trash | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Arriving in New York in the early 1970s, Christopher Makos fell in with the artists at Andy Warhol’s Factory and the underground music clubs on the Bowery. It was the dawn of punk, the exuberant days of denim and safety pins. Lost in their heady creativity, they gave Makos and his camera unprecedented access. An expanded version White Trash, Makos’ legendary 1977 book, was reissued by Glitterati in June, and this season they’ve published another retrospective of the photographer’s work, Everything: The Black and White Monograph. We spoke with Makos during a stop on his current “European Tour” about his memories of the seventies.

Azimuts 40-41 – Design Research Journals.  A Panorama | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Despite the impression given by its format and density, the central dossier of the bilingualAzimuts 40-41 – Design Research Journals. A Panorama has a quite modest objective: the provision of an initial survey of journals devoted to design research. Rather than approaching design research frontally, the editorial team has investigated one of the modes of expression favoured by research: the periodical, the supposed paragon and yardstick of academic excellence.
