When the Art is Watching You and the 24 Hour News Cycle

Take a look at some of the latest ideas, products, and visuals for the week of December 15th brought to you by our strategists, designers, and developers.

Ideas

When The Art Is Watching You: Museums are mining detailed information from visitors, raising questions about the use of Big Data in the arts.

Do The ‘Wrong Thing’: Jonathan Mildenhall, chief marketing officer at Airbnb, argues that companies need to ensure they’re not so preoccupied with doing the right thing that it becomes the wrong thing.

Tell, Don’t Show: Why do I feel like I need to impersonate a machine in order to actually make any sense of it?

Good News You May Have Missed in 2014: We can’t ignore the fact that it’s been a turbulent year, in the United States and many other countries. But it’s worth taking a moment to celebrate some of the good news too.

Products

Durr Bracelet: A 3D-printed wearable made to explore how we perceive time.

Fireside: An intelligent picture frame curates photos based on occasion, weather, and time of year.

Visuals

24 Hour News Cycles: A video collage using only images collected from the previous 24 hour news cycle.

WikiGalaxies: A visualization of the site in which each article appears as an object in space.

Mario Hugo’s WIRED Illustrations: The result weaves a moody narrative with light, shadow, and illusionistic geometry that takes the audience through fun, brain-teasing concepts.

Kinematics Dress Made with 3D Printing: A dress that could be fabricated entirely by a 3D printer—in one shot, with no assembly required afterwards—it emerges as a completed, ready-to-wear garment.
