Reminds me a bit of Picplum, which I subscribe to.
Dominic Wilcox has created a fully functional prototype pair of shoes that will guide the wearer to any destination, no matter where they are in the world. Poetic.

Not sure what made me think of Alf just now, but man, I just had some serious childhood Flashbacks. Is anyone with me on this one?

New York City Ballet filmed NEW BEGINNINGS at sunrise on the 57th floor of 4WTC in lower Manhattan. This stunning short film captures an extraordinary and moving performance of Christopher Wheeldon’s After the Rain. It is a testament to the resilience of the human spirit, and a tribute to the future of the city that New York City Ballet calls home.
Make sure to watch in full screen mode!

In this charming short film, Stan Dibben, a winner of the World Sidecar Championship in 1953, recounts the thrills and perils of his profession.
A wonderful short in which the lovely Debbie Millman speaks on seeking out criticism. Taken from her wonderful CreativeMornings talk.
The talented and wonderful folks behind Like Knows Like invited me to be part of one of their beautiful mini documentaries. Back in June, Bas and Marije visited me in Brooklyn and followed me around for a day. Like pretty much any Dutch person I’ve ever met, they are a delight to hang out with and I thoroughly enjoyed spending the day with them.
And now that I’ve seen the result (above) I can’t help but feel a bit speechless. What a gift to be given such a wonderfully, personal mini documentary. G and my kids approve as well and it makes me so happy that all of them make an appearance.
Nightvision is a beautiful short celebrating brilliance and diversity of European architecture. Over the course of three months Luke Shepard journeyed with a friend through 36 cities in 21 countries with the ambition of capturing some of the greatest European structures in a new and unique way. The video is comprised of thousands of carefully taken photographs, strung together and stabilized in post-production.
