Who Killed Bambi?

chris-heads

“A dangerous criminal gang is riding the net. They act in the dark, exploring the most sinister places, in search for the bloody heart of talent and creativity. Their favourite victims are banality, conformism, lack of humor and good will at any cost. Killing Bambi is a good metaphor for their mission. They are unarmed, actually, but they can still hurt.
So be careful…”

Their mission fits you? Then click; whokilledbambi.

dripbook : the online portfolio site

if you do not have an official web site that presents your portfolio, or such as ipek and me, if you own a site but have not designed it yet (urbanrabbithole), it is really hard to find an online portfolio site which you think will satisfy your needs. i’ve been looking for the most efficient site all over the web, since I am so bad at surfing on the net it was an awful experience for me.

anyway, I succeeded in my mission; come this way: dripbook

be careful when you apply because it is like an exam since you can not just apply and have an account, they let you in if you’re enough sufficient according to their criterias; moreover, as soon as you get in, you understand that you have to pay for them to publish your portfolio. anyway, I have not uploaded anything yet but there it comes; my online portfolio.

Design and the Elastic Mind – Bit.fall

bit.fall

The interface “Bit.fall” is constructed by the German designer Julius Popp whom I think did a great job in terms of giving the audience visual feast as well as implementing his artwok a substantial meaning. The interface is formed by a horizontal module with computer controlled valves hung from the ceiling and this module creates rain droplets which are released at precise times and frequencies in order to create words one by one to form a powerful imagery. This imagery supplies the meaning that’s aimed to be given as well.

As Popp states, his creation tries to remind the audience to think about the unnecessary information that has been disturbing their mind which he metaphorically depicts this point of view with the aspect of “flood”.

The illustration above indicates that a highly symmetrical and “devoted” mechanism is constructed in order to provide an accurate outcome from the interface. The construction itself is a big deal, and then the whole design is great. Like a saying; ‘Mission Accomplished’. Moreover, the metaphorical depiction of  high frequency information that is not been able to be obstructed by human beings, becomes a powerful imagery.  To admit, Popp’s visualisation is a good tool as a reminder for the unavoidable reality which makes the audience think about the incomes and outcomes of it.

When I read about the “Bit.fall” ,  although I am not able to see the actual interface, I was impressed by the design, and the idea it carries. Nowadays, I am so overwhelmed by the information flood which is gradually increased and creates an immense environment around me just like a living object. The worse part is that, sometimes you do not understand the exhaustion that this “flood” causes, and you keep on trying to have them all. Yes we are all created insatiable; however, I bet no one denies that millions of details and revealed facts make us learn more and more, make us curious, make as wanderers.

What if we focus on particular informations and try to overcome with those? Is this possible? I dont think so. We are diverted into so many things, and now less is not enough.
