Skyline Wave Sounds by Grey Digital
As part of an ad campaign 3M’s Noise Cancelling Headphones, design group Grey created borrowed several iconic skylines and mirrored them to form a wave sound that conveyed the nonstop dissonance an untamed city makes… the exact sounds you *wouldnt* be hearing anymore with the headphones. That all you got, city?
“Folding Space (Paper Planes)” | Randy Grskovic | Collage, Shadow Box (2010)
This was a really fun set of work to create. I folded images of space into various stages of paper planes. At the time there was a lot of talk about the cancelation of the American space program due to funding cuts. I was interested in the child like wonder that comes from dreaming of being an astronaut and what that would do to the imagination if this career was no longer an option for kids. As a child I dreamed about traveling through space. I still do.
If children can’t imagine growing up to become an astronaut, what’s left, imagining growing up to become an app developer?
La Chaleur de L’amour & la Beauté des Paroles (The warmth of love & the beauty of words) by Jad Melki. Using an exposed mattress and warmly lighting it to make it glow, Melki converted its inner springs into words and sentences extracted from letters written by his mother when she was in Sierra Leon in 1974 to his father at the American Univeristy of Beirut (via).
