The story unfolds entirely on the main character’s laptop screen, depicting the highs and eventual lows of his (Noah’s) relationship with his girlfriend. Warning: random scenes of male full frontal nudity.

 Harrys / Pepepiano - surface and surfaceHere’s a really great video by the fantastic film makers Harrys for Fallopian Dudes by Pepepiano. It’s like a happy summer version of Radiohead’s ‘Street Spirit’. You can listen to the full album ‘Kings’ on their bandcamp.

City Solstice Ronan Coyle - surface and surfaceA really nice light installation using a forgotten stain-glass window on Camden Street Upper in Dublin.  Ronan Coyle uses his project to draw people’s attention back to this unnoticed piece of architectural heritage.

“An Event to mark the Winter Solstice in the City with an animated illumination of the beautiful Stained Glass window on 4 Camden Street Upper, the workshop of the famous Early & Co ecclesiastical suppliers. It’s there to help lighten the darkest days a little and provide a chance to admire the craftsmanship of their prestigious stained glass artists.”

Watch the video below to see the whole process and people’s reaction to the piece. You can find out more on the city solstice facebook page here and another project by Ronan here.

up there - mother ny 01

 A fantastic documentary I saw a while back.

“Stella Artois and Mother provide a brief, but inspiring glimpse behind the rare profession of sign painting in the documentary film “Up There”.

The film was shot over two months telling the stories of the New York Painters who are struggling to keep this advertising method alive.  Directed by Malcolm Murray, produced by mekanism and based on an original concept developed by the advertising agency Mother NY.
