This massive digital mural is the work of Dutch artists Arno Coenen, Iris Roskam and their team designers and animators. Entitled Horn of Plenty, it’s a 118,000-square-foot work of art that’s projected onto the interior walls of MVRDV’s stunning horseshoe-shaped Markthal building in the city of Rotterdam. The building opens in October 2014 and will be home to an indoor market - including fresh fish stands, bakers, butchers, and produce stands, apartments, restaurants, retailers and the municipal court.
The Horn of Plenty is comprised of numerous individual screens working together to create an ultra HD video projection that beautifully blankets the 40-meter high arch inside the building.
“When the work is fully completed in october, an ultra HD video projection will function as a projection screen, displaying a cosmic vortex of food resembling the milky way, slowly rotating the massive images of food as if raining down on the spectator.”
Sorry for the bad camrips. It’s ridiculously quiet so turn up your volume!
It’s only been one episode, so not every character got as much screentime as others (Maki, and Rin and Hanayo especially barely showed up). Still, I think the dub isn’t bad - in fact, it’s pretty good so far!
EDIT: in case anyone is wondering, they are not dubbing the songs!
“A House For A Home” is a creative collaboration between a Lebanese photographer Aya Atoui, and his Syrian colleague Manal Elias. The pair decided to join forces last year and create video projections on various Dubai buildings. They took photos of their efforts which were recently on display at The Third Line gallery in Dubai.
Atoui and Elias‘ inspiration came from the fact they lived in a place with no sense of identity – geography and personality-wise. The idea of the projections was about capturing temporary moments, where the faceless buildings and street corners are activated and given the chance to re-invent themselves. Intriguing, haunting and absolutely beautifully executed.
Getting Quirky with Instagram @music’s Monthly Hashtag Project, #MHPoffbeat
Monthly Hashtag Project is a series featuring designated themes and hashtags chosen by Instagram’s Community Team. For a chance to be featured on the Instagram blog, follow @music on Instagram.
For this month’s hashtag project #MHPoffbeat, we are looking for unusual/bizarre/funky music photos and videos. To help out, we’ve brought in San Francisco-based photographer Misha Vladimirskiy (@mishavladimirskiy), best known for his “My Own Devices” series, which features musicians interacting with themselves.
Here are a few tips from Misha on how to best capture those weird music moments happening in front of you:
Shoot from unexpected angles: “Not walking down the straight line usually is the thing that creates the best visual things for me.”
Don’t try to make your pictures too perfect. “It’s not about making somebody look beautiful. It’s about pulling some sort of energy out of them.”
Work with another artist or musician to combine styles and try something new. “When I collaborate I create my best work.”
PROJECT RULES: Please add the #MHPoffbeat hashtag only to photos and videos taken this month and only submit your own. If you include music in your video submissions, please only use music to which you own the rights. Any tagged visual taken this month is eligible to be featured.
“Led by the creative vision of Tristan Eaton, PAINTED OCEANS is a feature documentary film that will follow seven of the world’s most renowned street artists as they set out to make history by painting murals this summer on the infamous Red Sands Sea Forts. Located off the East Coast of England, the structures are known for the critical role they played in the crusade against German forces in World War II, as well as fighting censorship in the pirate radio movement of the 1970s. Bringing together the likes of Shepard Fairey, How & Nosm,Futura 2000, The London Police and Tristan Eaton, each artist will be assigned a tower to render their respective murals. Set in a remarkably turbulent environment of extreme tides, decaying metal and unpredictable weather conditions, a “village at sea” will be constructed in the middle of the ocean in order to house the artists.”
