“As We Are” is a fourteen-foot, 3-D universal human head made from ribbons of ultra-bright, LED screens. In the back of the neck is a photo booth capable of taking 3D pictures. Once a visitor has their picture taken, they step out of the booth and their head is displayed on the giant head.
The sculpture addresses the relationship between self and representation of self, asking the subject of the portrait to reconsider presence through magnification. It is intended to provide amusement and evoke larger discussions around the phenomena of social media, diversity, and the power dynamic of public art.
Matthew Mohr outlined the design and interface and it was engineered and fabricated by Design Communications Limited in Boston. Imaging by Direct Dimensions, interface by Creosphere. Screens were custom made by Sansi North America.
We're Not As Colorful As We Think We Are
September 11 - October 2, 2010
We're Not As Colorful As We Think We Are, a solo exhibition by Los Angeles based artist, Joshua Petker. The new body of work continues the artist's ongoing exploration of color abstraction, negative space, and the human form. Petker explores the way humans use color to manipulate their physical appearance in order to transcend their reality. Through these new works, Petker's colors expose the desire for human metamorphosis all the while reminding us that underneath the layers of color, we are more alike than we may think.
We are a design company.
A creative production company.
A digital production company.
We are here to help connect people to the brands they love.
We focus on the idea, and let design lead the technique.
We are a group of diverse artists.
We’re lead by our common love for creative problem solving...
And compulsive late night archery.
We’re kind of like Voltron.
We work as a team, slaying creative problems with our mech-tiger swords.
We can do a lot of things.
Not all of them involving swords.
But above all, we’re here to help.
And make sure we all have fun while we’re at it.
We do what we do.
Because we love what we do.
Thank-you EchoLab for providing an AMAZING soundtrack. http://www.echolab.tv
Documentary short shot in the Spring of 06', following the lives of the New Directions Choir--a Los Angeles based group of formerly homeless, recovered drug addict war veterans that find solace and healing through the power of song.
There are over 27,000 homeless veterans living in Los Angeles, and the number of vets returning from Iraq with PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), is on the rise as the occupation continues.

“We shape our tools and our tools shape us.” As more of the tools we live with every day become digital instead of physical, our opportunity – and responsibility – as designers is multiplying. We live in a world of screens, and we are the ones who decide what goes on them. We are in a unique position to have an impact – one that lasts longer than the next redesign or the latest technology. What happens when we stop thinking of ourselves not just as developers or experience designers, and take up the mantle as a new generation of product designers for a digital world?

Mill+ Director Carl Addy directs this eclectic debut music video ‘Wheel’ for the London based duo We Are Shining as a way to visually articulate the band’s mesmerising sound.
Working closely with We Are Shining, the Mill+ team visually represent the band's influences and inspirations in this video through a montage of stills and video material derived from multiple sources made into hundreds of gif sequences.
The psychedelic video tells the story of a primitive man who stumbles upon modern tribalism; fashion, music, sex, booze. As he tries to escape this world he encounters a temptress who breaks his resolve. The film then breaks down into a larger global party where everyone is dancing along to the end of the world, everything descends into a chaotic orgy of destruction leaving the tribal man broke, yet enlightened, and so the wheel continues.
Humans have always made maps; to tell us where we are, to show us how to get somewhere we want to go, to understand the bigger context. More and more, designers are creating maps for these reasons, and others. We make maps to draw insight, catalyze ideas, to get on the same page, and as tools for understanding complex experiences and processes.
We make customer journey maps, empathy maps, mental models, experience maps and strategy roadmaps. Maps are a pure form of sense-making. This is in our past and is undoubtedly in our future as a discipline.
What’s next for these tools? How will they evolve? What cartography capabilities do we need to develop as practitioners? What makes a map useful?
Let’s talk about maps, baby!
“I have a way of filming things and staging them and designing sets. There were times when I thought I should change my approach, but in fact, this is what I like to do. It's sort of like my handwriting as a movie director. And somewhere along the way, I think I've made the decision: I'm going to write in my own handwriting. That's just sort of my way.” – Wes Anderson

"Don't confuse me with being anything else other than proud. Proud to be a hunter. It's time we stop apologizing for how we get our protein. This is who we are. Unless you’re a small time rancher, small time farmer, a hunter or fishermen... you really have no idea where your food comes from. Most people don’t even think about it. Well, we think about it. ” - Donnie Vincent.
If you’re like me and hunting is part of who you are, share this video and hopefully we can get some people thinking differently about how they acquire their food and maybe, just maybe... we'll change their opinion about hunting.
