The Intangible Design and Berlin’s Top New Artists

Take a look at some of the latest ideas, products, and visuals for the week of May 17th brought to you by our strategists, designers, and developers.

Ideas

Coming To Terms With Intangible Design: We are not entities simply floating around in space; we are intentional, future-facing beings whose action is mediated by the objects that surround us. Thus, we cannot think about our existence as divorced from experience.

Designing With Context: Context is a slippery topic that evades attempts to define it too tightly. Some definitions cover just the immediate surroundings of an interaction.

Evgeny Vs. The Internet: Evgeny Morozov wants to convince us that digital technology can’t save the world, and he’s willing to burn every bridge from Cambridge to Silicon Valley to do it

Sweden Is Fighting To Preserve Elfdalian,: Elfdalian is currently used only by about 2,500 people, but as a dying language it’s a treasure trove for linguists.

Products

Lock-Rs: The world’s first piece of wearable tech aimed at keeping both physical and digital belongings safe.

Archillect: Upon initial viewing, the Archillect tumblr looks like a regular visual mood board similar to many other tumblers floating about in the internet. Archillect is different though as it is a bot that is programmed to share random ‘likable’ images.

Visuals

Berlin’s Top New Artists: With Beyoncé sound loops, a beige video essay and booty-shaped seats, Berlin proves itself an influential force in art and culture.

Fashion Vs. Censorship: “The thing is, you can’t show male nudity in our culture in the way you can show female nudity. We’re very comfortable as a culture exploiting women, but not men” – Tom Ford

Movie Code: Images of the computer code appearing in TV and films and what they really are.
