Maybe this is the beginning of the end of web designers. Or perhaps not quite. The idea that a website can evolve as your business or activities change is a great concept. Focus on content, add features, connect with your audience, all while your responsive website automatically adapts itself. Whether or not web designers will disappear, this would make a great content management system.

A beautiful example of how projection mapping can still be relevant. In this performance called Hakanaï, dancers are in complete synchronicity with the 3D space around them, playing with the graphics as if they were solids or simply moving to their rhythm. View the video below.

Digital artist Miguel Chevalier took over former Sacré Coeur church in Casablanca and applied his fascinating projection art across the entire nave. Part pixel, part organic, this interactive display called Tapis Magiques evolves in full synchronicity with the music created by Michel Regolfi as well as morphs with the visitors’ movements across the floor.

A very creative and interactive initiative from the the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago who is not only bringing art to the street but allowing ordinary people to excavate beauty and become artists in the process. By scratching the poster, the lines reveal a hidden gem but also create a new art piece as the 2 layer blend.

This 3D animation called “Walking City” is a beautiful fusion of man and building, a 60′s avant-garde view of flesh and matter. It was directed by Matt Pyke a few years back, but is still relevant.

This unusual structure created by Daydreamers Design was built out of recycled (reused) polycarbonate water bottles. The pavilion called Rising Moon is inspired from traditional Chinese paper lanterns and is a representation of the shining globe that inhabits our nightly sky. The structure sits on top of reflective pool, allowing the plastic moon to project a complete sphere from the outside. It was a key attraction during the 2013 Hong Kong Mid-Autumn Festival, which has been celebrated for hundreds of years. The pavilion also got some deserved recognition at architectural contests.

Let’s just call it what it is, really (while not diminish the artistic quality of his work). Tony Orrico, who I believe also dances (cute butt too), uses the symmetry and synchronicity of his body limbs to traces continuous lines that eventually become complex shapes inspired by the theory of chaos. These art pieces, part of the Penwald series, are called bilateral drawings due to their geometric and repetitive motion qualities.

Exotic forms and luscious colours of the plant world have been a great source of inspiration for artist Rob Kesseler. In this project called Phytopia, he reveals a fascinating hidden world the human eye cannot see. Wether it is art or science, this impressive collection of images is the outcome of a microscopic look at vegetation such as pollen, seeds, fruit and leaves.

I was never a fan of beanbag seating apparatus, but Belgian carpet maker Casalis just brought the sad sack to the next level with their new product Slumber. These fluffy poufs look so damn comfy with their coarse and soft knit texture. Perfect for a little reading or a coffee break.

Organic meets structure. Kawamura-Ganjavian created a modular system to help crawling plants expand to their full potential. Just connect pyramidal elements to each other and help your green pet grow. Plus, you get to be creative with your architectural sculpture and may just even impress your friends with your creative abilities.

Everyone knows I LOOOOVE dogs. So I could not resist posting these great images by Carli Davidson. Funny and fascinating at the same time, these pictures capture moments almost invisible to the naked eye, due to speed of course. Carli, an award winning and internationally renowned photographer has an innate ability to showcase animal personality. Check out her portfolio.

I’m not sure how often I would use these or how ergonomic they are, but they certainly look good. The Buro desk accessories by the Wright brothers (Adrian and Jeremy) for Lexon will add an architectural spark of color to your boring desk. And even if you don’t use these tools, from calculator to stapler, the combination of these colourful blocs will make a beautiful sculpture.

The incredible abstracted Doric columns by Swiss architect Micahel Hansmeter measure nearly 3 meters high and are constructed out of layers and layers of 1mm cardboard sheet. Impressive assemblage based on subdivision processes which define and embellish the column order with an elaborate system of ornament.

This temporary architectural structure called “The Golden Moon” is a reflexion of Hong Kong’s rich culture and history, combining contemporary aesthetics and traditional craftsmanship. Built for the 2012 Mid-Autumn Festival Lantern Wonderland, it became a highly captivating public event destination. With abstracted flames in fiery colours and patterns, it is a beautiful homage to art of Chinese lantern making. It was created by The Laboratory for Explorative Architecture & Design (LEAD), a young architectural design and research practice based in Hong Kong.

This incredible stop-motion video is not new but I still want to share it on my blog. Touching story between a sandman and snow-woman who find a way to communicate and eventually get together, despite an ocean separating them.

Pretty impressive video created by 5 students as part of internship at WIZZ design. Trashy Euro rap, fat bellies, stop-motion style graphics… Enjoy!

You think sideshows were boring? Think again. All you need is a bit of creativity. As part of promoting it’s growing set of tools, Google published this clip that shows what you can do with Google Docs, and a bit of patience…

The British artist’s latest exhibition (Flock Series) is a unique blend of painting, collage and sculpture, sort of 3D illustration. I get an 80′s vibe from some of them, probably because of some of the neon tube shapes, mesh, and fluorescent colors.

And the trend continues. But projection mapping is getting more and more impressive. The latest attempt comes from H&M at the opening of the Amsterdam flagship store last month. Fun, festive.

Cassius’ new video is different, to say the least. Actually, not so unique. The whole mouth app for the iPhone has been done to death, but they brought it to the next level. Watch the video “demo” below. Get the app on iTunes and make your own version.
