Project A15 Video Mapping

Projection Mapping RotterdamThis image might look like it’s a CGI mockup or a scene from Bladerunner, but it’s actually a video still of projection mapping in Rotterdam. Below is a photograph of the OMA-designed skyscraper that the visuals were projected onto.De Rotterdam OMA Building by Raban HaaijkDe Rotterdam building, as seen from Erasmus Bridge.

Project A15 – the idea that this event was promoting – is an initiative that seeks to make the busy highway running from Rotterdam to Nijmegen into the most sustainable highway in the world.ย The projection itself can be seen in the video below, and bear in mind that the height of the De Rotterdam building is 150 metres. That’s taller than London’s Centrepoint, which stands at 117 metres!

Kate Moss In Playboy

Kate Moss Mert & MarcusThis is my favourite picture of Kate Moss from her Playboy debut, shot by Mert & Marcus. I love the way that the light doesn’t distort the shape of her body, but it shrouds her skin tone in this ethereal covering which adds a sort of subtlety to her nakedness. Her expression in this picture is also really innocent and youthful – the only thing that really gives the true nature of the shoot away is the ears.

12 Shoes For 12 Lovers

Sebastian Errazuriz Shoes12 Shoes For 12 Lovers is a project by sculptor Sebastian Errazuriz, where the artist has drawn inspiration from previous relationships and trysts, creating shoes in their honour. My favourite pairs from the set are the red “Heartbreaker” shoes and the black “Boss” shoes (pictured above). I’m not sure how practical either pair would be – that cupid’s arrow could get caught on things, and the “Boss” heels are far too pointy for a novice like me to walk in – but I really like both of these playful designs. I’m into accessories and shoes that have a bit of tough charm to them. I get a lot of compliments on a Mafia necklace I have, which has teeth on it, and I have coveted these Terry De Havilland boots from the moment I first saw them…Terry De Havilland Knife BootsSeriously, they are fucking magnificent.

Pop-Up City: The Book

Pop Up City BookThe guys behind Pop-Up City are bringing out a book! Well, they are trying to. They need a little bit more financial backing first, so I’m trying to do my bit to help them get it. Pop-Up City kindly gave me a book back in 2012…unfortunately it wasn’t my very own book – it was a copy of Indie Brands by Anneloes van Gaalen – but it still made me happy because I had won their competition, and got something lovely for free. So yeah, spread the love and all that, you get a discount if you pre-order!

A body without a soul is just a lifeless inanimate frame

Jaron Albertin Sony 4K TV AdJaron Albertin is a genius. You’ve probably seen the Sony advert that he directed to promote Sony’s new 4K TV, but I’m totally in love with the car advert that he did for Chrysler’s Viper SRT.Viper TV AdJaron Albertin ViperMain Street AmericaDiner CheerleadersJaron Albertin Body & SoulViper Body & SoulIt’s like a pastiche of the most iconic and beautiful films featuring twentieth century America. The advert is called “Body & Soul” and is widely available to watch online, but I’d recommend you watch the one here, because this edit has the music that I feel really completes it. The first time I watched it, it was one of those adverts that I kept on wanting to watch again and again. It’s got such a gorgeous cinematic quality to it. The accompanying symphony is called “River” and is by Alexander Desplat.*

*Just wanted to add that I’m not so pretentious that I’d act as though I knew that all along – I used Shazam on the video because I liked the music so much. Okay, glad we got that sorted…
