Face Visualizer by Daito Manabe @ Transmediale

February 8th, 2011

Last Friday I had the chance to see Daito Manabe perform with his Face Visualizer live during the Transmediale festival in Berlin. The Face Visualizer is a tool which lets people’s faces move artificially in sync with music through electroshocks produced with the Max/MSP programming platform. I’m pretty sure you’ve seen the videos of his first tests like these ones here.
He performed together with Ei Wada, who definitely was quite surprised by some of the electroshocks.

The day before the performance, Daito held a presentation of his work at the agency I work for. Not only was he kind enough to do so, he also brought me a present: my own Pa++ern t-shirt. Pa++ern is a project he did together with Motoi Ishibashi, it was basically an embroidery machine connected to twitter.
THANK YOU GUYS!

SHOP

April 19th, 2010

Last Friday was the opening of SHOP, the WASTED GERMAN YOUTH store in Berlin. It’s going to be the retail space for the brand, but it will also be used as a gallery, office and studio. WASTED GERMAN YOUTH is Paul Snowden his brand and this is the story how it all started …

as history has it “i was sitting some sunday morning, in the garden at tresor, it was love parade, it was hot and the buzz was very good and all around, me, everyone, so super wang. i turned to my friend and said… these kids, all so fucked up. all of them, so off their fuckin faces. just wasted german youth. its just… wasted german youth” and there it was…

So if you’re around, go and check it out: Memhard Strasse 1, 10178 Berlin.

By the way, Paul is actually a little bored and wants to get challenged to love his job once again. So you can submit your design project for Paul here and maybe when it tickles his fancy, he might give away his skills for free.

Pa++ern

August 5th, 2009

Almost a month ago I posted Pa++ern, a project by Daito Manabe and Motoi Ishibashi. I basically allows you to twitter a t-shirt design to an embroidery machine. The design has to be coded in a specific language which you try out here. I guess this little documentary by Matron shows you what’s it all about.

This is my shot at it: (<^<^<^<^<^<^<^)(i),.((+>> >+v > ^^^^),,…(<<<<<),,<<(v),vv),…
So this would be the first official today and tomorrow t-shirt, I hope I can buy one soon.

Pa++ern by Daito Manabe and Motoi Ishibashi

July 9th, 2009

Pa++ern is a new project by Daito Manabe and Motoi Ishibashi. They basically hooked up an embroidery machine with Twitter. A special language was developed to encode designs in the 140 character limit of Twitter. I guess the images below show you how it works.
You can go and see it from this Saturday on at the Beams Gallery in Tokyo.

On the left you can see the tweet: [ <<<^],+[vv],[^],+[>],[v], >>+n[^],[>],vvv[<],vvv+[n>], >>+[^],, >>+[v],, [>^<]>,>n+[>],[v],[<n],[^].
And on the right the graphical translation.

s.a.d t-shirt

September 2nd, 2008

Keith Hancox is graphic designer, who has a friend who suffers from seasonal affective disorder (s.a.d). So he designed this t-shirt for him, where the sun image is over printed with black heat sensitive ink which turns transparent at 32ºc. Very neat.
