Huge scale paste-ups from Irish Illustrator & Street Artist Joe Caslin who is currently working on a street art project entitled ‘Our Nation’s Sons’ in Ireland.
A new project commissioned by PIVOT Dublin called ‘Make Shape Change’ which was put together to ‘promote wider acceptance and use of design as a tool for positive change’. At the crux of this project is the best animation I’ve seen since ‘Back to the Start’. Although also directed and designed by Johnny Kelly this one is written by Scott Burnett and produced by Ali Grehan. The simple forms follow through on the web site which is an outlet for young people to find out more about design in everyday life. This looks like it’s the start of something really great.
I saw this over on Nialler9 last week and I’ve had it on repeat all weekend. So early but I doubt anything else will beat this for song of the year. It’s by a Cork based Irish musician who goes by the moniker of Talos and accompanied by yet another emotionally charged video from Feel Good Lost, who have been mentioned a few times on Surface & Surface before namely the recent video for Hozier, Take me to the Church. Tethered Bones is the only song I could find by Talos so far but really looking forward to what comes next. You can watch the video or just listen to the song on the soundcloud link below.
Another year over and another Offset, 5th one this year. So many amazing projects and ideas from very talented people. I’ve put together a few images from some of the stand out speakers for me. If you’ve never been to Offset before and like the stuff on this site you should give it a go next year if you get a chance.
