THE FUTURE OF BANKING?
I have been spending a lot of time with UNIX Bash recently… And for some reason I was looking at youtube videos of supercomputers… This particular one is run by the US Navy, and is comprised of a couple of thousand PS3’s. There is something about it that I love, perhaps it is the hazard tape on the floor, of the fact that it looks like milk crate holders are being used.
NEWSPAPER INFO-GRAPHICS (A PLAY)
Designer1: “Can you do an illustration for this interview… ”
Designer2: “Yeah, sure”
Designer1: “Do you want a rough translation?”
Designer2: “It’s OK… Im sure Google Translate will work”
… GOOGLE TRANSLATE
Designer2: “Right So I’ve got an idea, and according to the Google Translation its going to sum up the piece – perfectly – … Just give me a couple of minutes to get it going”
… SOME MINUTES LATER
Editor: “What’s that?”
Designer2: “It’s an info graphic, I translated the interview and I thought this would be perfect!”
Editor: “You know we need to show the face of the interviewee”
Designer2: “I did not know that”
Designer2: “I’ve got an idea… just give me half an hour”
Designer1: – looking at the screen of Designer2 – “I’m not sure… what is it?”
Designer2: “Well it’s using the info graphic… but… It’s also going to be the guys face…”
Designer1: “(Designers ‘hmmm’) “Are you sure”
Designer2: “If it works it will work, I think it will work…”
Designer2 finishes image and makes a pdf
LATER THAT NIGHT
Editor: “Designer2 can you come with me a minute?”
Designer2 walks with Editor into office
Editor: “look at this! and then stand over here! look at it now!”
Designer2: “I know, If people work it out I think they will like it…”
To read the full interview have a look on Universitas.no. It’s the largest Student Paper in Norway with a weekly circulation of 17,000. God Stemning!
LE GLITCH FICTION
Libération has written an article on the recent Glitch Fiction Show in Paris – I am not sure in which edition ( I got an email from Nelly Ben Hayoun today with a pdf of the article ) but I am super chuffed that they have used on of my images for the lead. I am going to try and get hold of a hard copy. I also saw something on the Wired blog, I really don’t have my finger on the pulse…
PHOTOSHOP LOOTER (OLD)
I never posted this but it was a submission of mine to the tumblr-site photoshoplooter. I think it’s on page three somewhere. They are planning to make a book – but have some copyright problems…
UNIVERSITAS (WEDNESDAY UPDATE)
I spent most of today working on the cover page for the magazine section “Mellom Fag” of next weeks edition of Universitas. While I would love to post the cover today, I suppose I should wait until the Edition comes out. Meanwhile you can enjoy one of my last contributions to the paper.
Norwegian Customs… Routine Search… Well it got here in the end. Thanks to Alex Prior back in London for getting the package sent (and for the masterful use of Comic Sans!)… If I had a fancy phone I would have taken a picture. 20 minutes after arriving at the local Post office the jumper was delivered to Gallery Ramfjord. The next day there was an opening. I went – remembered why I don’t like openings – left and got drunk. Ahh, to be an artist…
GLITCH FICTION (UPDATE)
Image taken by my friend and co-exhibitor Andy. for more images of the exhibition there is a flickr set – here –
GLITCH FICTION & JUVENARTE
In Search of our senses is currently being shown at the Paris design week. Ten days later and the work will (hopefully) be in Oslo for Juvenarte. Would have loved to make it to Paris to help out and catch up with everyone, but all my money is currently going towards Norwegian Lessons… Ikke så bra, men nå jobber jeg som grafik designer i Universitas (en avis).
