It can be used for shelving books and iPads as well as hanging magazines. Visually, the optical illusion serves as a reminder that, whenever one picks up a medium, ideas can be misinterpreted when passed from one end to the other.
Amnesty International is celebrating its 50th anniversary with a shock campaign. A beautiful video created by the La Chose agency.
Paris is a place that will forever be in the public spotlight, endlessly photographed by those who visit. There are the monuments that make it famous, and the clichés that add to its allure. And then there is Luke Shepard’s Le Flâneur, which introduces Paris in a new light.
What started as a project for his studies at The American University of Paris became an impressive undertaking, reflecting a side of Paris free of tourists, and one that locals often miss as well.

Born back in 1986, Bart was never really the kid who drew on everything as soon as he could hold a pencil. His passion for drawing and designing came later on when he started helping out bands with their artwork and making flyers for gigs in the Rotterdam area.

It’s a short film – a visual poem – about that moment in New York when you emerge from the subway and find yourself in a new and sometimes unexpected world.
The city is filled with an invisible landscape of networks that is becoming an interwoven part of daily life. WiFi networks and increasingly sophisticated mobile phones are starting to influence how urban environments are experienced and understood. We want to explore and reveal what the immaterial terrain of WiFi looks like and how it relates to the city

BSUR approached PostPanic to help them create an extra special product launch film to match the distinctive new MINI Rocketman concept.

Hoerboard is a brand that makes custom DJ furniture. The Hoerboard DJ Stands are designed to fit classic turntables and modern cd/dvd players with a mixer in between. The dj equipment isn’t designed to rest on top of the stand, but to be inset in its top– so the system’s outputs, cabling and other messes are hidden below its surface.
Taking things apart and failing to put them back together is part of a man’s DNA from the time he’s born. Even though your skills with a screwdriver and a power drill increase exponentially with age, there’s always that part of you that wants to tear something to pieces to figger it out.
Todd McLellan is no different; he just does something productive with it. He disassembles everything from typewriters to clocks and then turns them into amazing pieces of art based on their disassembled parts.
35-year-old Liu Bolin, from Shandong, China, manages to camouflage himself in any surroundings, no matter how difficult they might be. Liu works on a single photo for up to 10 hours at a time, to make sure he gets it just right, but he achieves the right effect: sometimes passers-by don’t even realize he is there until he moves.
The talented Liu Bolin says his art is a protest against the actions of the Government, who shut down his art studio in 2005 and persecutes artists. It’s about not fitting into modern society. Despite problems with Chinese authorities, Liu’s works are appreciated at an international level.
