Concrete Clickbait and Bad Housekeeping

Take a look at some of the latest ideas, products, and visuals for the week of December 4th brought to you by our strategists, designers, and developers.

Ideas

Concrete Clickbait: Photos of Yugoslav monuments known as spomeniks are often shared online, exoticised and wrenched from context. But now, argues Owen Hatherley, it is vital that we make the effort to understand what they truly represent.

Bad Housekeeping: Smart houses may usher in a leisurely world for some and more work for others.

OK Computer, Write Me a Song: Google says its AI software could make creative suggestions to help musicians, architects, and visual artists.

Public Trust And Art Museums : As art museums strive to better serve the public trust, the question of access must be foregrounded.

Products

Leanflex: The easiest way to find movies worth watching on Netflix, Amazon, iTunes and HBO.

Sundial: See what you were listening to on this day, one year ago.

Lex: A service for building conversational interfaces into any application using voice and text. Powered by Alexa.

Visuals

Collapse: A collaboration between 3D-scanning startup ScanLAB Projects and dance organisation New Movement Collective (NMC), uses a technique called “slow life scanning”.

The Long Shadow Of Artificial Darkness On Modern Culture: The emergence of artificial darkness in the 19th century, from the darkroom to the theater, radically influenced our experiences with art.

This Neural Network Dreams In Cities: Inspired by Italo Calvino, a team of engineers teaches neural networks to imagine entirely new cities.
