'Berg's Here and There Project, Mecca Time and the Nadia camera'

Jack Self

The AR’s pick from the world wide web

HalfHead by Victor Rodriguez- architectural perspective intersects the human face.

Kevin Kelly (Web Futurist) has made his list of the greatest articles ever written. However, as Things pointed out, there are several glaring omissions, namely the excellent New Brutalism by Banham (available in our archives here).

The architectural richness of Inception is a hot topic for discussion (I highly recommend the film) but am I the only one to notice the similarity between twisted Paris and Berg’s Here & There project? Still on Berg, I recently rediscovered their beautiful Nearness video, inspired by Der Lauf der Dinge.

An oil-spill-themed fashion photo-shoot and the invention of a kind of street view for inside buildings are the most disturbing things on my radar. The world’s largest piece of art reminds me of something out of 2001 (categorised references here and here), while I am concerned about the media hype surrounding a possible shift to Mecca time.

Finally, I thought this bit of design deserved its own paragraph: the LCD readout on the Nadia camera presents the user - not with a thumbnail of the most recent image - but with a percentage rating the success of their last shot. It calculates the number based on the play of light, contrast and other details (stemming from the Acquine image system).
