Sometimes we can be caught up with what is directly around us, seeing only what is in our own microcosm. Sometimes, however, when we are clear of mind and take a step back, we see that the world is far different then we thought. Toby Ng Design has created a superb series of posters that cleverly help us get an overview of how the world really appears. The 20 poster collection, titled ‘The World of 100′ is available for purchase at toby-ng.com [Read more...]

These five posters buck the minimalist poster trend that has been all around the net lately. Rather than simplify all the details, Emma Butler takes the plot and puts in all the important pieces:
This has to be one of the most beautiful and insane toothpick sculptures ever created… not only did Scott Weavers “Rolling Through San Francisco” take 35 years to construct, but it used over 100,000 of the tiny wooden sticks and over 3,000 hours of his time. The sculpture is also unique in that it features multiple “tours” of the city taken by ping pong balls that roll around and through the landmarks.
The New York Times Magazine has put together 14 moments by 14 different actors. The project was directed by Solve Sundsbo and scored by Owen Pallette. Each piece is about a minute long and the silent film format allows you to focus on the actors pure emotion.
“You’re going from making iconic images to creating narratives,” Sundsbo said, “but there is less of a narrative capacity in 60 seconds, so you need to create something like a poem that can lead your imagination.”
When Jonathan Harris turned 30 on August 27th 2009, he decided it was a year to capture his life: to catch memories in quick glimpses and hold on to them. Listening to Harris narratate the creative process of his one year project is touchingly intimate and gives one the feeling of going on the journey with him. Full screen this, give yourself a moment to reflect and appreciate the beauty of life.

Andrea Gallo has created 6 crisp, black and white images highlighting pieces of iconic architecture from around the world. It’s impressive how the incredibly simple two-tone features in these posters so well convey the featured architects style.
This super sweet toy design lets you create an infinite variety of marble runs on any magnetic surface. Challenging people to use their creative and logical mind, it cleverly forms a rectangular shape when marble time is over, just like the blocks of our childhood. Called Plama Marble Run 2D, it’s nearly as flat as it’s Swiss maker Bernhard Burkard implies.
Hans Hemmert is fascinated by air and latex balloons in a bright canary yellow. But these aren’t just your average latex inflatables, some fill entire rooms while others surround Hemmert himself. Posing as a giant elongated egg, he performs dances or interacts with the objects outside his elastic bubble. His work here is just a small sample of the expansive portfolio displayed at ingesidee.de.
