Use All Five Squiggle Graphic

Master of the Game and Cocooned Corridors

Take a look at some of the latest ideas, products, and visuals for the week of June 2nd brought to you by our strategists, designers, and developers.

Ideas
On Screen And On The Block: At the moment, the market for art that’s created and displayed on a screen — as distinct from paintings, prints and photos that are generated digitally and then printed — is small.

Master Of The Game (Diploma Says So): “Making a game combines everything that’s hard about building a bridge with everything that’s hard about composing an opera,” he said. “Games are basically operas made out of bridges.”

Business School, Disrupted: In moving into online education, Harvard Business School discovered that it isn’t so easy to practice what it teaches.

DARPA Created A Virtual Therapist: If you have a conversation with Ellie, her creators say, she will be able to suss out symptoms of anxiety, depression, and — of particular interest to DARPA — PTSD.

Products
AirBNB’s Local Companion: A concierge service but instead connects you to normal people at your destination.

PhotoJoJo’s Engineer Prints: Your photos, at a human-sized.

PirateBox: An anonymous offline file-sharing and communications system built on the cheap.

Puddle: Lets friends pool money together, to save with and invest in each other.

Visuals
Cocooned Corridors: Brazilian artist Henrique Oliveira’s interactive sculpture twists like an organic growth that has taken over the Museum de Arte in Sao Paulo’s sleek and white corridors.

AUP: A public database of censored, forgotten, postponed, impossible or rejected art projects, by nearly 2000 artists.

Leslie David’s Captures: A Paris-based illustrator and art director with a personal blog full of screenshots of her work in progress.
