Organizing For The Unpredictable and Self Portraits

Take a look at some of the latest ideas, products, and visuals for the week of January 13th brought to you by our strategists, designers, and developers.

Ideas

Organizing For The Unpredictable: 2015 won’t conform neatly to our organizational goals and expectations — to succeed, we must learn to adapt ourselves and our organizations to the unforeseen events that will undoubtedly shape the year ahead.

Ai Weiwei Is Living In Our Future: Living under permanent surveillance and what that means for our freedom.

The Data Sublime: The sublime unknowability of Big Data lets us fall in love with our own domination.

The Philosophy Of Creativity: One might therefore expect creativity to be a major topic in philosophy, especially since it raises such a wealth of interesting philosophical questions, as we will soon see. Curiously, it isn’t.

Products

Project Ara: What if you could make thoughtful choices about exactly what your phone does, and use it as a creative canvas to tell your own story?

Google Classroom: Classroom is designed to help teachers create and collect assignments paperlessly, including time-saving features like the ability to automatically make a copy of a Google Document for each student.

BOSS: What sets the phone apart is the fact that it comes with TOR, which allows the user to hide any data transmitted from any sort of traffic analysis or network surveillance.

Visuals

Flutter: An app that uses music to help those experiencing the loss of a loved one – a period of time often resulting in high levels of isolation and incredibly difficult emotional problems – express themselves in a safe, positive environment, by creating sound artefacts that express how they feel at that moment..

Self Portrait: The collaboration sees Belgian-based digital artist Juan Hurle join forces with graphic designer and illustrator Becky Baier in an interactive exhibition that couples technology with traditional collage techniques.

HBA’s First Photo Book: Dazed creative director Christopher Simmonds presided over the project that removes HBA from its natural habitat, the street, and places the brand’s identity somewhere desolate, forlorn and lost, on the outer limits of existence.
