Seth Godin: Keep Making a Ruckus from 99U on Vimeo.
Seth Godin advocates us to be bold. Whether it’s a toxic work culture or stagnation in your craft, Godin urges us all to recapture the child-like delight in taking a risk. “You may know how to use fancy design tools, but if there isn’t that leap that leads to connection, it doesn’t matter….you’re not making art,” says Godin. “We didn’t build stuff because we need more beautifully laid out menus. We did it because people want to be touched, noticed, and connected.”
Eye Catcher from Interactive Architecture Lab on Vimeo.
Using a combination of industrial robotics and high power magnets, a seemingly inconspicuous frame on a wall, magically comes to life. Through a series of experimental films, photography and physical prototypes, the primitive effects of eye (and eye-like) stimuli have been investigated. The Eye Catcher project in its conclusion has developed a novel expressive interface where emotion recognition algorithms read audience faces and in-turn trigger the animation of a face formed of ferrofluid.

Shooting Thoughts from Plip on Vimeo.
“Shooting Thoughts” is an interactive projection where people generate a constellation of stars by sending their thoughts with a mobile device. Connected to lasers, each thought becomes a shooting star that reaches its galaxy by using all the possible paths the architecture allows. In this case, the pillars are used as launch stations that carry the star to its final destination on the ceiling of the church via the arches and vaults. Like all of us, each star finds its place at its own speed with its individual trajectory.

Susan Gregg Koger: Being a Rookie Is an Asset from 99U on Vimeo.
When she co-founded the online clothing retailer ModCloth, Susan Gregg Koger had never worked in retail and had no connections with the fashion industry. She had no experience that helped her write a business plan or how to source inventory for her site. But being a “rookie” turned out to be asset as she built her company without the constraints of tradition or routine. Since founding the company in college, Koger and her team have innovated in the online retail world with unconventional tactics like asking her customers to select what dresses to stock, and using user photos on product pages.
“Approaching a problem from a rookie point of view enables you to innovate just because you don’t how its usually done,” she says.

Lost Senses from GS Animation // Grupa Smacznego on Vimeo.
A short story about an encounter in an abstract world, stylized as the paintings of Giorgio De Chrico. A Man is going to meet A Woman in abstract flying city. Will the lovers meet each other?
A Man is trying very hard, like a parkour practitioner, climbing up on the buildings. One unguarded moment is enough to make him lose his senses. And his chance. Directed by Marcin Wasilewski
