September 28th, 2007

‘Hotel Chevalier’ … you’ve heard about it by now and you don’t have an USA iTunes account to download the free version
So someone loaded it on Google video … no guarantee how long it will be available.
If you don’t know what’s it about … Wes Anderson, Jason Schwartzman AND Natalie Portman.

mi Innovation Center

March 9th, 2007

Adidas opened the mi Innovation Center in its flagship store in Paris. It’s a space where you can customize your own sport shoes, where did we hear that before. Adidas focuses more on finding the right shoe for you by analyzing your feet and your running style, unlike Nike who’s iD line is more about colors and such.
The whole system looks like something between a CSI lab and Minority Report interfaces. The space was designed by Mutabor, they teamed up with the Fraunhofer Institut for the software. Just watch the video and you’ll see what it’s all about.

28 Millimètres

March 6th, 2007

28 Millimètres – portrait d’une génération, is a photography project by JR and Ladj Ly, which they did in the suburbs of Paris during the riots in 2005.

After his first guerrilla exhibition on the walls of Montfermeil’s ghetto’s (93/370) in 2004, JR settled down right in the heart of the district collaborating with Ladj Ly, inhabitant of the ghetto, actor and director from the collective, Kourtrajmé.

Armed with a 28 mm lens, JR shot full frame portraits of young people from this neighbourhood and the nearby district of The Forestière (Clichy-sous-Bois, 93). This no frills, straightforward technique allowed them to get very close to this generation.

Interviewing them, without restrictions, on the recent events of November 2005. The first portraits were illegally pasted on the east walls of Paris, a district that was once run-down, but has now become a residency for the bourgeois bohemian, who are shielded from the flames.
