Dancing with drones

- - i heart

YouTube description
This is a collaboration developed by elevenplay×Rhizomatiks who has been the pursuing possibilities of relationship and interaction between the body and technology by interacting with a variety of hardware and devices such as robot arms and motor-controlled floating balls. In this new work, objects are arranged three-dimensionally in real space through a tracking technology and drone control system, and the work, in which dancers give performances, has been presented so as to find the possibility of a new bodily expression.

Read the Manual

- - i heart

The other week I posted about, a cool archive of successful kickstarter and indiegogo campaigns. Well I made my first purchase and it arrived today from Europe. The Manual is a beautiful set of books focused on the art and craft of design for the web. Purposely captured in an analog form – the 3 editions published each year are a mix of theory and practical advice celebrating web based design by a collection of emerging and established designers.


The Manual captures the voices of our profession, both the well-known and the quietly working, as they bring clarity to the why of web design, share their visions, break our hearts, stretch our minds, and move us to deeper, smarter, richer work.

Each issue is an A5 (~6 × 8”) hardback book with a textured, handcrafted feel, and a bit over 100 pages of 120gsm Munken Pure stock within. No markup, screenshots, or tutorials—we focus our lens elsewhere. Each issue has its own color, from the foil-stamped design on the cover and spine to the exceptional illustration paired with each article. Line up the full spectrum of these collectible artifacts on your shelf, beginning with the first issue.
