The art of street photography has always fascinated me. It’s such a strange mixture of skill, perseverance, editing, and even bravery, yet still relies on these incredible coincidences that result in once-in-a-lifetime photographs. One great resource for street photography is iN-PUBLiC, a collective of 21 photographers including Jesse Marlow, Matt Stuart, Nick Turpin, and Nils Jorgensen among many others. They have a fantastic blog (RSS) you should subscribe to and a wonderful picture of the month gallery that goes all the way back to December 2001. Have fun!

Facity

March 12, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Facity (face + city) is a daily portrait photography project that started in Berlin in 2008 and opened its doors to internationally in early 2010. Any photographer can submit a portrait photo provided that it’s taken in a manner that meets the Facity manifest guidelines. The resulting body of portraits now numbers in the thousands, all taken with natural light without visible clothing, and with an aperture of 2.8 with a 50mm lens. Take a look!

Live NYC Public Transit Data Converted to Music

January 31, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Google engineer Alexander Chen has converted live data from the NYC subway schedule into an online “stringed instrument” called Conductor (above is just a video example).

Conductor turns the New York subway system into an interactive string instrument. Using the MTA’s actual subway schedule, the piece begins in realtime by spawning trains which departed in the last minute, then continues accelerating through a 24 hour loop. The visuals are based on Massimo Vignelli’s 1972 diagram.

Learn more about how it all works on his blog, and definitely check out the live site. Brain Eno would approve.

Atypyk

A couple days ago I linked to this Time is Money clock over at Atypyk. Today I noticed they have a bunch of new stuff in stock and after clicking through it I had a huge smile on my face. The upside down flaming car candle alone is a must-have for the general population of Earth I think (their description, not mine: Have fun! Set cars on fire (french tradition). Made in France.)

Live Streaming Website Navigation

December 10, 2010

Christopher Jobson

The new web site for Sagemeister incorporates a live studio webcam stream that captures vinyl graphic buttons affixed to the floor which function as navigation for the website. This would be much more awesome if that guy would get up from his chair and go stand on whatever I click while the girl gets whatever I requested and holds it up to the camera. Just sayin. (via quips)
