today i would like to introduce you to some interesting projects.
i chose them not because of the project itself,
but because of the presentation language.
how to explain your idea in a concise and immediate and fascinating way.
the cover image, the previous page and this page,
they are works made by rube goldberg.
well-know cartoonist, famous for his “goldberg machines”
here an interesting goldberg machine: “the page turner”, by Joseph Herscher
here you have another interesting project: “noteboek” by evelien lohbeck
here a project where the designers (crispin jones
and ideo) focus their attention on the relationship
between the mobile phone and people’s behaviors
link to the video
link to the website
this is a very nice project, communicated in an excellent way.
soren pors, phony star + a whole new world (2003)
you can work making a comic…
here you have paul maich’s “architect murdered in his own building”
you might consider to get into his world.
it is an extremely fascinating world.
then of course,
we cannot skip terry gilliam’s animation.
monty phyton stuff, if you don’t know,
you should check them out.
you could sketch your story
like it was a comic book, but as a work-in-progress…
here above, you have ettore sottsass’ sketchbook
and here below a very nice video about his life:
“the life and time of ettore sottsass”
here you have marti guixe’s drawings
he is another one, very good at explaining things…
of course we couldn’t finish this presentation without mentioning charles and ray eaems:
“power of ten” is quite an impressive work!
