With Matter, otherwise run-of-the-mill landscapes and cityscapes become a cross between Tatooine and a Pink Floyd album cover. MATTER

Sunsets. Babies. Avocado toast. With an Earlybird filter slapped on. Instagram’s 200 million users tend to follow a well-trodden path when it comes to sharing scenic moments, and that’s not a crime. After all, sunsets, babies, and avocado toast are beautiful, adorable, and delicious.

But for some, Instagram has become a powerful tool for pushing square-shaped bursts of digital creativity into the world. “There’s not a lot of awareness of this group or scene of people making mobile art on their phones, but it’s opening stuff up for people who don’t have laptops or software or Photoshop. They can do this from the phone in their pocket,” says Ben Guerrette, creative director of Pixite, a digital studio that makes iOS apps with that demographic in mind.


A day at the beach (left), and a day at the beach with Matter (right). WIRED

Pixite’s latest photo-editing app is Matter. With Matter, otherwise run-of-the-mill landscapes and cityscapes become a cross between Tatooine and a Pink Floyd album cover. Users can upload any photo in Matter, and then browse through four “object packs”: Primitive objects, unique structures, Polyonfire collection (created by Syamil Haqimi, a digital artist and Pixite app user), and organic elements. Each pack has an arsenal of 3-D objects that can be added, then modified for reflectiveness and opacity, to an image.

The Pixite team designed Matter to be as responsive as possible, partly because it noticed Instagram artists uploading 3-D objects elsewhere to edit and paste into photographs. That involves several steps, so when Pixite built Matter (from scratch, in OpenGL) they took pains to ensure users could rotate, zoom to scale, and blend each object in one place.


Matter

To make Matter especially enticing to their niche group of Instagrammers, Pixite’s developers also made sure users could tinker with the shadows (created by the hovering objects) to sync with the direction of sunlight. They also built a plane into the editing frame that estimates the distance between the camera, the ground, and the vanishing point. If a user moves an object past that plane, the object will intuitively start to disappear underground, as if it’s half-buried. Plus, Matter-made images can export as GIFs, with futuristic orbs and rocks circling and twirling in mid-air.

Upon close examination, none of these edits have the sophisticated detail of CGI, but that’s not the point: The pictures are Instagram morsels, meant for bite-sized sharing. And on an iPhone screen, with an Earlybird filter thrown on, they’re hyper-real and cinematic in their own right.

Matter is the fifth app in Pixite’s creative suite. Check them all out here.

automated journey building tools can play a key role in helping brands "surprise and delight" consumers by pairing data for personalization—even down to how that consumer likes to receive their information—with the right message at the right time.

The power of content curation for inbound marketing

Inbound marketing is definitely more efficient and appealing to the sophisticated modern customer than traditional interruptive outbound techniques. But for inbound marketing to work, you need to have its lifeblood: content.


Via Guillaume Decugis

Guillaume Decugis's curator insight, November 5, 1:48 PM

These slides are from a talk [url=/u/2007 x-already-notified=1]Marc Rougier[/url] recently gave on how content curation helps to solve inbound marketing #1 pain point: scaling the content you publish to feed your landing pages and conversion loops. 


Content Marketing and inbound marketing are on a conversion path, specifically for B2B marketers who are looking for ROI.


These slides contain explanations on how content curation helps inbound marketers, what ROI they can expect vs created content* as well as case studies from both SMBs and larger enterprises.  


*with data from our latest white paper and study which found out that 1 dollar invested in content curation was 50% more efficient than the same dollar invested in created content - plus a lot of other great findings.

Guillaume Decugis's curator insight, November 5, 2:21 PM

Content curation has played an important role in content marketing for some time now. But we wanted to look specifically at what it brought to inbound marketing specifically and that's what [url=/u/2007 x-already-notified=1]Marc Rougier[/url]'s been doing in that great presentation from a talk he gave recently. 


Content curation doesn't just help marketers do more and better by being more targeted. It also helps build trust as this study demonstrated: customers have become more sophisticated and stopped to fully trust vendor-created content because they know it's been designed with an agenda. Curating and publishing 3rd-party content is not 100% objective either but it brings an independent perspective that helps with regards to building that trust. 

Rachael Johnston's curator insight, November 19, 4:11 PM

Check out this slideshow for a brief overview of inbound marketing and content curation

Outbound Marketing: interruptive, shouting, propoganda, paid VS.

Inbound Marketing: invitation,, converse, value, earned

* Inbound marketing is becoming used more and more frequently. It draws the customers and clients in instead of pushing their product/service/business right at them. 

 

Inbound marketing is all about content. It has to be available through as many devices as possible, it must build a community, it needs to useful content to engage readers, and it must be frequently distributed/shared. 

* It is crucial that the content has value and that the readers are really interested. Content must be created and shared regularly in order to keep the readers coming back for more. As Chris Bailey said during his presentation, if your content doesn't bring value to your reader, they won't read it! You/Your page won't grow. 

This is why it is important to add some of your own insight when curating in order to enrich the content and bring extra "expertise" value to your readers.

The answer is likely to be “neither.” For we are seeing a trend:

Depth Insights » Mythology of Animals by Joseph P. Muszynski, Ph.D

Depth Insights » Mythology of Animals by Joseph P. Muszynski, Ph.D | Hot Links | Scoop.it

The possibility exists that animals may have their own myths. Evolutionary biology tells us that non-human and human animals are biologically related, including similarities in brain function. Both see images. Depth psychology is rich in discussion of how we create myth from images. This opens the possibility that animals can also do so.

 

Many questions arise. Are images all that are needed to “know” myth? If the archetypal images we see are related to instincts, would such images really be a uniquely human phenomenon? If other animals do have these archetypal, instinctual images within them, are they enough to lead to myths? The question of whether non-human animals are aware and conscious would be an a priori condition to believe this to be possible. Or, do we need speech for myth?

 

A myth may only be a myth if it is told, somehow shared with others. We do know other animals communicate, both with each other and with us to the degree that we are receptive, but are they capable of sharing myths? (Click title for more....)

Rethinking the role of the strategist | McKinsey & Company | Hot Links | Scoop.it
Achieving real impact today requires strategists to stretch beyond strategic planning to develop at least one of a few signature strengths. Several important facets of the strategist’s role emerged from our research, including reallocating corporate resources, building strategic capabilities at key places in the organization, identifying business-development opportunities, and generating proprietary insights on the basis of external forces at work and long-term market trends. A number of these roles are more appropriate for some strategists and organizations than for others. But the core notion of stretching and choosing is relevant for all.

Depth Insights » Jung in the Garden of Eden: A Myth of the Transformation of Consciousness by Arthur George, J.D

Depth Insights » Jung in the Garden of Eden: A Myth of the Transformation of Consciousness by Arthur George, J.D | Hot Links | Scoop.it

The biblical story of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden (Genesis Chapters 2-3) is foundational to our Western culture and has influenced the upbringing and psychology of all of us, whether we realize it or not. Mythologists as well as many biblical scholars recognize the story as being in the genre of myth, which makes it appropriate to analyze it from the perspective of depth psychology, among other approaches.


Indeed, as Joseph Campbell concluded, “This story yields its meaning only to a psychological interpretation” (2001, p. 50). Further, Carl Jung (CW 9.2, para. 230) had already written that “cosmogonic myths are, at bottom, symbols for the coming of consciousness.” But the literature about the Eden story taking such a psychological approach is scant, largely due to traditional and problematic gaps and tensions between academic disciplines....
