Wakie is a fun, friendly community of people who wake each other up in the morning. Set a time and a stranger will call you. It’s anonymous and is another in a number apps that are attempting to connect strangers in unique ways. A few months ago Miranda July released her Somebody app that enables users to send messages through strangers in the real-world. Hybrid apps an emerging trend or niche? But then again Wakie could catch on and dare I say become a dating app.
Short doc from The Atlantic on the people who build, live in and love treehouses.
Enjoyed this reality based project that documents 40 days of dating between two friends that have failed at love. Nice mix of design and storytelling. I particularly like the simplicity of how the story is presented side by side.

I first played this a few years back but have recently started playing it with my son. It’s an amazing game that is stunning in terms of its artfulness. It also evolves the point and click adventure while paying homage at the same time. Well worth the download.

Stumbled upon this music discovery meets street art installation hybrid. These boxes have been placed around Tokyo, London, LA, NYC and Vienna.
So far all I’ve found is the following cryptic description…
“…more than just a multimedia project, it’s an experience.”
“…brings the thrill of discovery back to music.”
The Colors From Your Favorite Movies, Mapped To 7,200 Pixels
What do your movies look like when each second is broken down to just one color? Fascinating, telling grids.
…inspired by Brendan Dawes’s Cinema Redux that simplifies each second of a movie into its most prominent color. These frames are then lined up 60-wide to designate a minute per line in a long tapestry of pixels that you could easily call art, or you could just as easily pigeonhole as a strictly scientific, anatomical view of a film’s color.
